Default Van broken into Clifton, Bristol last night:(

Hello all,

My van was broken into in Clifton, Bristol last night. The side window was smashed and they grabbed my road bike - which was covered so they probably had seen it before hand

Just wanted to let those around here know to be on the look out, obviously I want my road bike back and any thoughts on how to get a replacement window would be great - the glass repair place I spoke to said that they can't find a window for it. I'm not local to Bristol and could do with some local knowledge please.It's a T4 91 plate...

Thank you

Sorry to hear that - welcome to Bristol

There's a guy fairly local that travels to you, Andy Dobson(?) I've got his number :
01225353176 or 07768429553

Really nice bloke and fitted a rear window for me when I bought my T5 not long ago. Also quoted for side windows so I'm sure he can do them. Think the company was kwikwindscreens or kwikfitwindscreens (yes I know but not that lot !). The only thing I didn't like was that he stuck a sticker on my windscreen (he did ask) so I scraped it off and hence now don't have his address.

As for your bike, thieving ******** stole my road, my MTB and my lads 2 bikes from my attached garage when I was actually in (and 2 of them were on the wall with only one wheel fitted !!!!). I'm sad to say your best bet is calling your insurance cos unless you see it on ebay or gumtree I doubt you ever will.

Hope you get the window fixed
