Protect Your Vehicle
There has never been a completely foolproof way of keeping thieves out of your vehicle, but there are still a few ways you can protect yourself.
First, if possible, do not leave valuables inside of your vehicle. This may be difficult if you are staying at a place other than your home for an extended period of time. Take all the valuable items out of your car if it is going to be someplace overnight. This will deter thieves that are looking for something to steal during the night.
If you are stopping someplace for only a few hours at a time, put your valuables out of sight—under the seat or in the trunk. If thieves can’t see anything of value to steal, they may not want to waste their time.
You should also park in a well-lit, highly trafficked area. These areas are usually videotaped to deter thieves who do not want to be identified on camera.
And if all else fails, make sure that your vehicle is insured against theft. Call us today for a free review of your car insurance policy.
