6 Garage Gifts
- Does the lock still work and if so could a burglar easily break it and get in?
- If you have a window in your garage could it be a possible entry point for a burglar.
- Do you live in an area that has had lots of bike thefts recently? It may be time to consider installing an alarm system.
Interior & Exterior Lighting for Garages
Installing lights both inside and outside your garage is a sensible idea. If you need to run out to the garage to get something during the Scottish winter you will need an interior light or a torch to see inside your garage even during parts of the day. Having an indoor light with a switch near the door is so much safer and useful.
Exterior lights on a sensor can be useful for seeing the lock and possibly for illuminating your walk to your house. However, the police do recommend them for security purposes as thieves do not like to be seen, so are likely to move onto another premises if your garage is lit up as soon as they walk up the drive.
For many people they can barely get into their garages without tripping over bikes and scooters and gardening tools. Garage storage ranges from amazing DIY ideas to companies that will come out and refurbish your garage with storage units and hanging rails.
We have created a Pinterest board that may inspire you to get some storage for your garage.
If Santa is likely to bring new bikes this Christmas, then be prepared and buy some security devices to keep them safe too.
