Please help me get my livelyhood back

My name's Charlie Westcott and I run Westcott Tree services. On the 11th of January at approximately 03:00 the yard that I use to store all my tree surgery kit that I used to run my business was broken into. The thieves stole my van, my wood chipper and every tool that I used to run my business leaving me unable to work and leaving me unable to pay my rent / live. They also took a specialized pitch mountain bike which had enormous sentimental value to me.
I am waiting for my insurance to hopefully pay out for my tools, the wood chipper wasn't covered but at the moment it seems that they are trying to wriggle out of it and if they do pay out it won't be enough to get me back to where I was therefore I'm woefully asking for any help that people are willing to give me to enable me to get my business back up and running and enable me to provide a great service that I provided for my clients. See checkatrade for client testimonials:
Any help that anyone is willing to give would be extemely appreciated and when I am back up and running I will happily discount any monies donated from any future arboriculture works that donatees have given.
The police have given me a crime reference number (43220014405) and have said that its case closed with regards to any further investigation.
No arrests have been made and the chances of me getting any of my gear back are extremely slim.
My van that was unique in the fact that it was custom built to accommodate for the arboriculture work took me over a year to build and was found burnt out by these mindless thieves so I will never get that back and the insurance won't cover me for the upgrades and they have offered me a very small sum which is nowhere near enough for me to get another van.
Thanks for your time in reading this even if you don't wish to donate.
