Someone mentioned these folks some time ago but I was not able to find the post. I was just looking for some feedback regarding Pro-Tec or perhaps another company that followed through and was easy to deal with. Thanks.

66 reviews and no replies , intermission time perhaps , some good guitar music here ...
Ghetto Pucks are good to a point but we had a truck with half of each door damn near ripped in half ( big brother with a crowbar we think ). Dude lost it all and he is a top tech with all of the latest and greatest stuff. He is now down to a 6 in one screwdriver and a Fluke voltage indicator and the company is looking the other way. I pulled most of my tools after this happened and would like to get back into the the cool stuff , but I don't want to take a loss like he did.

Funny I was also looking for that post. I was thinking about this the other day. My friends van got broken into.
I hope someone who has experience with tool insurance companies chimes in soon
That's nuts man when they gotta feed that monkey they will do anything. I call the puck locks crackhead repellant. You got pics of the van?

I homeowners insurance company and they can add it in as a rider. The cost wasn't too bad, around 150 I think. It covers it when it's parked at home, and if on on a job the companies insurance pays for it.

I'd be interested in hearing this info again. I "misplaced" my pouch earlier this week which really got me thinking. Luckily it showed back up.

Do you have pics? The guy who's tools got stolen must. I wanna show my boss. He thinks if we got metal welded behind the windows and puck locks we are save. I told him if they want it they will get it.
I had a car stolen from my driveway 2 spot lights alarm and I live in a subdivision they still got it. If they know their is $ to be made. The thefts will not stop at anything to get it . Tools are easy money for drug addicts. They will go back. My buddy started removing his tools at night with 2 hockey bags on wheels. Sure enough next spring the thieves cut a hole in the van all for some wire,copper no tools of value. So if its not insured I wouldn't leave it in the van.
Can anyone find the link to last time this was posted?

We keep an ongoing list of tools on our trucks. Personal and company. Company insurance covers it you you better have that list. In todays world where every digital device takes pictures that would also be very helpful.You need to put the phone down and get back to work!
