How do I protect my vehicle when parked on my driveway?
Well, we at Aremco Barriers have the solution. Our Telescopic Security Post has proven extremely popular over many years with both Residential and Commercial customers alike. Compared to similar products on the market, ours is probably the most economical and reasonably priced.
Unique Selling Point - Should just the inner get damage, then this can easily be replaced without having to excavate the complete unit. Also, using a padlock to lock the post instead of an integral lock, is something else that will not go wrong with this product. There are many similar products on the market where if there is a problem and it cannot be rectified the entire unit will need to be excavated and a new unit installed, thus proving costly and time consuming, and in this day and age with vehicles being stolen at an increasing rate from driveways, no-one wants to wait too long to re-secure their driveway.
Furthermore, if similar products fail, excavation/replacement are required, so it's best not to wait too long before securing your driveway.
The fully British manufactured Telescopic Security Post is an ideal solution for security and parking reservation applications and is very popular with clients who do not want their staff to lift an excessive weight.

This is an inexpensive way to protect your driveway and deter would-be thieves. It is a small price to pay for vehicle security compared to the disruption a theft may cause.
