Sometimes, we go on auto pilot when it comes to our car. We’re used to driving to many of the same places and used to perhaps parking in the same location each and every night. And even though habit and routine can be good things, it’s always a good idea to make sure that you’re always keeping your car as safe from potential thieves as possible. Your vehicle is a big investment!
Here are a few tips you can keep in mind to give you that extra edge against car thieves.
Avoid Leaving Valuables In Your Car
We know, we know. It can be a pain to always have to remove things from your car at the end of the day, but if you’re leaving something in sight that may be of some value, it may catch the eye of someone who’s willing to break into your car to get it.
Park Where There’s Light
Parking where it’s well-lit is always a good idea, no matter where you are. If your home doesn’t have any external lighting, perhaps it’s time to start looking into adding some.
Lock Your Car
Seems pretty simple, right? We can’t tell you how many times we’ve seen people post on social media about reminding people to lock their car doors because they just had something stolen overnight from their own unlocked car.
Shut Your Windows and Sun Roof
Again, a pretty simple fix. But, if a thief can get into your car easily, they are probably going to go for it. If they have trouble getting in, the odds are better that they will move on.
Consider an Anti-Theft Device
Many new cars already come with some sort of alarm or theft deterrent built in, which is great. If your car doesn’t have one, or if you simply want to upgrade what you already have, it can pay off to be overly safe.
