Tips and advice to help prevent vehicle crime

Top Ten Tips to prevent car crime

1. Don't display

Never leave anything on display when you leave your car. Even an old coat or plastic bag can tempt a thief.
A good way to prevent this is to fit Security film to your vehicle windows and this can be done by ourselves at a very competitive cost.
Security window film can also help protect you in a road rage or carjacking incident.

2. Immobillisers

Electronic engine immobillisers are fitted as standard to all modern cars from 1998 onwards, these prevent your car from being started and are the best way to deter thieves. This stops your vehicle being started but does not protect your belongings.

3. Parking

When parking at home always use your garage if you have one. Always lock both your car and your garage. If you don't have a garage always park in a well lit, open place.

4. Secure Car Parks

When parking away from home always try and park your car in an attended car park. Try to look for a public car park, which is part of the Police approved secure car parks scheme.

5. Steering Locks

Use a steering wheel lock every time you leave your car. 

Although a vehicle cant be driven away due to the immobilizer, a Steering lock is a visual deterent

6. Car Alarms

Car alarms can deter thieves from not only stealing your car, but also taking items from it. They need to be fitted by a professional.

7. Locking Wheel Nuts

These are cheap, easy to fit and will stop thieves from taking your wheels.

8. Etching

Have your car registration number or the last 7 digits of your vehicle identification number (VIN) etched onto all windows, windscreen and headlamps.

9. Security Markings

Mark all your car equipment, such as your stereo, with your vehicle registration number.

10. Damage

When parking in a car park or in the street, especially at night, take simple precautions by lowering or removing your car aerial. If possible fold in your wing mirrors.

Remember a few simple precautions could save you a lot of heartache. For further information on car crime prevention contact
