Whenever you park your car at home, at the shops or at work, you hope that your car is secure enough to make sure it doesn’t get broken into or stolen. There are a number of reasons why cars get stolen or broken into, but you can take steps to help keep your car secure.
These steps or recommendations aren’t based on rocket science, but it might be just the thing to keep you thinking next time you park and leave your car.
However parking where there is traffic consistently moving through, or where there is plenty of visibility will reduce the temptation for criminals to target a car off by its own where there is nobody around.
It doesn’t take much effort to keep your car interior clean and tidy, and if there isn’t anything on display, there isn’t any temptation.
Now you’ve done the right thing by taking the mount down whilst you’re not using it, but you’re still advertising that there’s something of value there. Keep a micro-fibre cloth in the car to clean the glass. It takes seconds to clean and saves a whole heap of hassle of writing up Police reports.
We don’t want to play the role of Captain Obvious, so we won’t tell you why you should lock your car, but we hope you do this already. Of course, there is no way to stop a break in or your car being stolen. These steps, whilst mostly common sense, will hopefully make your car as undesirable to a criminal as possible.
