Do not Post Pictures of your Tools on Social Media

By Jack Green


Evening ladies and gents,


I keep seeing members of the Decorators Forum UK sharing pictures of all your tools on social media. The tools are in the back of your vans. But why shouldn’t you post photos? You’ve worked bloody hard to buy them so show them off right? All your lovely dust free sanding equipment and airless sprayers that you’re proud to own.


I’ve just done a demonstration in a post to show how easy it is to locate and potentially help myself to all your lovely tools. I believe this is one of the ways these scumbags are doing people over and robbing your livelihood. The very things you use to put a roof over your family’s head and food on the table. It’s hard enough being a self-employed decorator!


The scary thing is it took me 2 minutes to track down a good couple of thousand pounds worth of tools. That was just one van!! Please be careful what you post on here and keep your things safe, have a great weekend everyone 🍻👍
