More than £1,000 raised so far on GoFundMePage as owner attempts to rebuild his business

Mobile mechanic ‘soul destroyed’ after thieves stole £20,000 worth of tools from van

A self-employed mechanic who’s tools were stolen from his van has launched a GoFundMe page to help him get back to work, the Lancashire Telegraph reports.

Lee Harrison, who runs LMH Auto Services, came home from working as a doorman in the early hours of Sunday to find his van doors open and all of his tools missing.

It’s thought around £20,000 worth of tools and equipment was taken.

He said: “It felt like someone had genuinely stolen my life. It’s just soul destroying.

“As my headlights hit the driveway and I saw my van doors open my heart just sank and I knew.

“I had a look and it had just gone – everything.”

Lee said that he had thought his business insurance would cover the contents of his van but as it does not, he is unable to make a claim.

Lee added: “For me to sit down and list what I was missing from what I remember, it would probably take me three or four days.

“It’s probably about £20,000 worth of equipment and 25 years’ hard work, 15 of that trying to build my own business.

“Someone just whipped it out from underneath me, probably in about half an hour.”

Donations can be made to the GoFundMe page.

    Hi Lee, so sorry to hear the bad news, the thing is these rogues will only get a fraction of the cost
    of your tools when they try and sell them, the same thing happened to me years ago, lets hope
    when they try and market your tools somebody will take notice and report back to you,
    then maybe Karma will take its toll, good luck my friend.
