TIPS AND ADVICE ON HOW TO PROTECT YOUR VEHICLE AND REDUCE YOUR CHANCES OF BECOMING A VICTIM!

  • Theft from a vehicle is when personal belongings and items that are in the vehicle are stolen. Not very nice!

So how to keep them protected?

  •  Always lock it! – Get into the habit of locking your vehicle even if you’re only going to be away from it for a moment! 🔑🔓

 

  • Going back into the house to get something? Turning your back for a moment? Don’t forget your vehicle is insecure! 🌂👓🎒
  • Take it with you or hide it! – Your phone, coins, sunglasses or other items earn quick cash and are irresistible to thieves!

  • And it should go without saying that wallets, handbags, purses & credit cards should never be left in an unattended vehicle

  • Remember, the cost of replacing a window is often much more than that of what’s stolen!

 

  • Fit locking, anti-tamper wheel nuts to secure alloy wheels! Stolen wheels are valuable, either as parts or for their scrap value.Using locking nuts reduces the risk of wheels being stolen.
  • Besides, your vehicle will look better on wheels rather than bricks!
