Car Theft - Childs Play

Keyless technology making car theft "child's play"

In the last three years car crime has surged - there are some worrying facts and footage in this Daily Mail article.

A Ghost immobiliser will stop a thief from driving away in your vehicle for just £399 supplied & fitted - even if they steal the keys, they will need to know your 'code' before being able to start the car.

Vans being opened like a tin can to avoid the alarm!

Thieves have also been breaking into vans by cutting the sides open rather than going through a door. This prevents the alarm from triggering and allows the thieves to help themselves to the contents of the van.

To avoid this from happening we'd recommend a PIR for any van alarm - these are an additional £75 but will set off the alarm with any movement detected. Our standard Thatcham Cat 1 alarm system is £360 supplied & fitted.

Bessacarr Handover



"It'll take more than the recent bad weather to stop us collecting our brand new BESSACARR!"

Grahame & Tina are pictured in the thawing snow,  taking delivery of their brand new Swift Bessacarr 560 Lounge model from Shane Catterick here at T C Motorhomes in Hillborough, Herne Bay.

They bought a new Bailey from T C Motorhomes almost three years ago and recently decided it was time for a change.

The Bessacarr 560 Lounge is very well appointed and provides a `Fixed Bed` layout which Grahame & Tina feel might be preferable this time around.

Having run a Full-Marathons before, Grahame & Tina are both keen distance and cross-country runners and often find they can take their motorhome to where they might be competing.

Grahame confirmed that they both enjoyed their running immensely, and with that said,  it was very pleasant to take some `creature comforts` away with you when you’re away from home.

The Bessacarr is well equipped in the creature comforts stakes, with sumptuous upholstery, Duvalay mattress, Alde Heating & Hot Water System, Solar Panel, TV Aerial and lots lots more ..

Shane Catterick and his colleagues at T C Motorhomes wish Grahame & Tina many miles of Cross-Country & Distance Running, and also some fabulous motorhoming experiences.
