Chorley-based car security company, Disklok, is helping customers to save money on insurance through its new partnership with Sky Insurance.

All drivers who purchase a policy with Sky Insurance will receive a discount for the anti-theft, steering wheel locking device, Disklok, which will also mean an overall reduction on their policy.

Changes recently announced by the government are making car ownership increasingly more expensive which makes the collaboration between Disklok and Sky Insurance particularly advantageous for savvy drivers keen on making a saving.

Recent reports have suggested insurance premiums will increase anywhere from £75 to £1,000, on comprehensive policies. Further changes to car tax, which came into effect at the beginning of April this year, also mean the average petrol or diesel vehicle will now have to pay a minimum of £140 per year instead of £110. Putting the cost of owning a vehicle at an all-time high.

Disklok’s managing director and inventor of the anti-theft device, Mark Higginson, said, “In 18 months, tax on car insurance will have doubled, which is unprecedented. This move, along with the hike in annual road tax means that drivers are paying more than ever to run a car. It therefore makes sense to secure your vehicle adequately.  Jamming devices threaten the security of keyless cars, therefore a physical security mechanism like Disklok is ideal.”

Alex Kinrade, Sales Team Manager, from Sky Insurance said, “Part of the service we offer is to ensure our customers are receiving the right cover for their needs, which includes getting the best value for money on every policy, despite the upcoming rise in premiums. Drivers who take the extra precaution in using a Disklok are demonstrating a conscious effort to lower risk of theft.”

The reinforced steel device fits onto standard UK steering wheels to prevent car theft if a vehicle is broken into. The anti-theft system has achieved several accolades from The Sunday Times, What Car?, Which?, and Land Rover Owner International Magazine.

The full-cover steering wheel lock has been accredited by insurance industry body, Thatcham, and is in high demand with fleet companies that require reliable vehicle protection.
