Posted by Ken_Wainwright (Ken Wainwright), 13 January 2004If I posted which equipment I had, wouldn't it be tempting for some unsavoury type to pay me a visit one dark evening?
The only kit I'll admit to on this thread is a well used bucket and sponge (for upholstery)
Safe and happy cleaning
Posted by strakercleaning (strakercleaning), 13 January 2004Good point about nasty characters visiting late at night as these forums are open to the public
I know you never meant that there are any dodgy CCs in the forum
I have Prochem and Diamondback machines plus usual accessories including expensive alarm system and PIR lighting and 8 stone Dobermann that can reach the end of my drive in 3 seconds . Add that to my natural aggression, 15 years training in 2 martial arts, Military Police background and a firearms certificate ..............go ahead,make my day .

When do you go on holiday? What's your alarm code? Does your dog prefer PAL or raw sausages? Where do you keep your van keys?

I only use a magic wand isnít that all you need? But as back up TM, RX20, Ninja, rotary, blower plus other bit and pieces these are only use these as a last resort. Sorry to be facetious.
Security to the above not a problem 1.wife 2.mothering law 3.me and over & under if this doesnít work the kids are to push him/them in the pond to be suck to death by my fish, but saying that, their probably fast a sleep and not a care in the world.

Posted by Dynafoam (Dynafoam), 14 January 2004Reading this tread has brought back some painfull memories.
On 4th October 2000 I had:
1 D9 vacuum cleaner + power head
1 Ultimate dry cleaning machine
1 2-jet Glidemaster wand
1 Pilediver (weighted dragwand)
1 4-jet Prochem wand
3 Sahara Pro turbo driers
10 or 12 hand tools (curtain, rug, stair, edge & detail)
150 ft of solution & vac hoses
4 racks of chemicals
Plus an assortment of odds & ends, terry towels,damp meter etc.
By the end of the day, having left the van for 19 minutes, locked and alarmed, in a hospital car park, I had nothing.
The van had been stolen, about half the contents removed, and the rest destroyed by fire an hour and a half later.
I make no appology for posting slightly off-topic, since I feel that a reminder about security is never a waste of words. I did apreciate the humour that has appeared in the thread and I most sincerely hope that that none of you ever find yourselves in that situation, which was far from funny.
Clean long and prosper,
Posted by Kinver_Clean (Kinver_Clean), 14 January 2004My van belongs to my dog---- he just lets me drive it occasionally. On the two occasions in 6 years he has not been with me I had two attacks on the van one successful, fortunately not too serious just a bag of home made carpet reair tools and some rather nasty solvent which I hope they had a go with.

Posted by mark_roberts (mark_roberts), 15 January 2004Dynafoam
What sort of alarm was on your van if they got it away so fast?
Just wondering as I need an alarm for my own van.
Posted by Les (Les), 15 January 2004A crackin glossy 'Full Cullur' brochure containin pictures of other peoples quality work.
A caravan, (don't like to stay in same place toooo long), lovely business cards showing offices in London New York and Paris.
A load of 'Iffy' second hand gear to do the work wiv
an a REALLY fast Van to get away in once they've paid !!!
Posted by Dynafoam (Dynafoam), 15 January 2004Mark,
The alarm was a 'Maple Commercial Vehicle Alarm', as fitted by BT to their vans.
A witness heard the window smash, the alarm sound and the van speed off "all within seconds". Professional vehicle thieves will overcome most alarms in a surprisingly short time.
I now have an alarm that cost over £250 plus an imobiliser which cuts the deisel and electrics and am concidering a pedal locking mechanism made from a section of steel girder.
Hope I never loose my keys
Posted by Lee (Lee), 15 January 2004OK Im well insured......
