Gate motor theft on the rise in Centurion.
Sliding gate motors are not cheap and they have excellent 2nd hand value.
The Centurion D5 is the most popular with skelms, a Security bracket aka Anti theft bracket can be fitted. The slightly older version bracket can easily be manipulated. If you (like me) cannot afford to fork out more money nowadays. There is a cheaper yet effective way – If the Opportunist can’t see your motor he will not be tempted. A big flat sheet on the gate to hide sight from street dwellers.
Insurance claims – NOT all insurance companies will cover it. – So please check with yours, perhaps you will need to specify it with them. It’s also good to do so with thunderstorm season around the corner.
Be safe out there till next time.
