It’s super important to keep your vehicle locked all of the time. Whether it’s parked in your driveway, at the mall or gym or your place of business, keep it locked—even when you’re driving! It’s also important to never leave your car running and unattended. It’s just too tempting to a car thief.
It’s also wise not to leave valuables in your vehicle, especially if they can be seen by passersby. And this might surprise you. You shouldn’t leave your vehicle title or registration in your car. Should it be stolen and the car then pulled over by a police officer, it would be easy for a thief to show it to him. If you do need to leave it in your vehicle, find a great hiding place for it that only you and other drivers of that vehicle know about.
It’s super smart to install an anti-theft deterrent in your truck, SUV or car. If you don’t have one already, the service experts at Tim’s Truck Capital can install one for you. A steering wheel lock is also effective.
