Keeping high-value vehicles (HVVs) out of harm’s way presents numerous challenges, but it is well worth the time and money. Whether it’s an executive fleet, a group of utility vehicles or bloodmobiles, or a CEO’s personal collection, these vehicles are precious to their drivers and the organization, and often constitute a significant financial or emotional investment.
When deciding how, when and where to store HVVs, consider the following time-tested best practices.
Review the security features at the storage facility. The alarm system should be monitored by an Underwriters Laboratories (UL) listed central station monitoring company. Ideally, the system should include glass break sensors or magnetic contact sensors on all exterior doors and windows, interior infrared motion sensors, and a combination of smoke detectors and heat sensors.
