Q82: What is the best way to protect my shed from being broken into?
The ideal situation is not to keep anything of great value in your shed, but this is sometimes not possible for many people.
There are anti-theft padlocks available that are harder to break. If an intruder thinks it is going to take a long time to break in then they may not bother trying. Another option is to have your house burglar alarm extended to the garage / shed, or to get a battery operated alarm for the shed.
In case the worst does happen, then it is worth checking with your insurance company that items in your shed are covered. For more information on this and general advice on home security, please see the links in Related Information.
