What to do when you have just been robbed, here is what we advise our customers to do next.
Call the police and don’t move anything
Get out of the house just in case they are still inside, wait in the car and lock the doors if you are there on your own woman/man.
Police will check for signs of forced entry, finger prints etc…
Find out if any keys have been stolen e.g house keys, car keys, work keys etc…
Call a locksmith and organise them to change the locks as soon as it is possible but this does have to be done after the police have been, you can organise this while the police are at your house or even call the locksmith and let them know you are waiting for police to attend and will need someone straight after (also let the Locksmith know if any other keys have been stolen)
Ask your locksmith for security tips while he is on site (things such as a sticker in your window stating your house is protected by Toowoomba Locksmiths, the best type of lock to suit your door, CCTV cameras etc…) Remember increased security measures lowers your chance of experiencing a break in, it does not guarantee it. Although increased security can give you peace of mind with; correctly positioned security cameras, engraved or documented evidence on and of your valuables = an increased chance of the crims being caught and convicted. Security is a long game, but one that is winnable.
For insurance purposes; do a quick assessment of what is missing, keep the list somewhere you can easily access and add to it as you notice more in the coming days.
Remember all assets can be replaced, people can not.Tags: breakins toowoomba, jsut been robbed, what to do when I have been robbed, what to do when there is a breakin
