A new Vimcar study shows that a whopping one-third of all electrician employers have had a van robbed, in line with recent data suggesting that more than 1 in 3 UK businesses are hit by van theft annually.

Another 62% would also like a system in place to keep a handle on vehicle misuse: 75% restrict how their fleet should be used (some only allow their vehicles to be used for business miles, for example) and many in the electrical service industry find their employees don’t always follow those rules.
