Tips to protect your vehicle from theft:
Do we really want your vehicle to get stolen just because of lax security? Protect what is precious to you. Here are 5 tips to secure your vehicle:
#1 Double check if all the doors have been locked:
This may sound redundant but it is still the most important thing you need to remember. By leaving your doors unlocked, you are practically sending out an open invite to thieves to steal your vehicle. It will only take a few minutes but it will save you a lot of hassle in the future.
#2 Do not leave valuables in sight
If there are any valuables in your vehicle such as Laptops, CD's, Mobile phones etc, carry them with you if possible, otherwise put them in the glove compartment. Having them in plain view will only attract unwanted attention.
#3 Vehicle alarm:
Car alarms alert you as and when there is someone trying to break into your vehicle. Although it cannot protect the vehicle in itself or the valuables in it, a thief will think twice before targeting a vehicle that he knows has an alarm built into it.
#4 Vehicle Immobilizer:
A vehicle immobilizer is an electronic device that prevents the car from being started by someone who doesn't have a proper key. Though this will not stop the car from being broken into, it will however prevent the car from being stolen.
#5 Secure Parking:
If you have a garage at home it is advisable to park your vehicle in it rather than out on the street. If you are parking on the road when you are out, park it in a street that is well lit where there are a lot of people. If you are able to park it in an area with CCTV cameras, that is even better.
