Protect Your Car From Theft and Save on Your Car Insurance

Ways to protect your Auto against theft and save  on your Auto insurance

No one wants to walk out and see thier Car missing, but  is not  reassuring to know, if you do  get ripped off , your car insurance is  going to pay for it? There is a certain security in knowing  that it is the security we need to park on streets at night and leave our doors unlocked, while we are in the gas station “only for a  quick second.”

It is the certainty that thieves target  our cars in the first place. We become complacent, we stop being aware, and before we know it, we become a victim. It’s that simple.

Car thieves, like all good thieves, want thier Marks made easy. Whether they’re for a quick ride to the neighborhood looking for Chop Shop, or a hot GPS system to Hawk on the black market, they do not want to have to all work harder than they need. Careless drivers are the first victims of theft, which is why auto insurance providers are encouraging drivers to take steps to protect their vehicles. Not only does that help prevent these steps, the chance that your car is stolen, they could simply lower the premiums on your auto insurance.

Simple Steps To Theft Prevention

1) Lock your doors. Most locks can be jimmied with the right tools, but trying to unlock a car door, that way attracts attention (usually in the form of  helpful passers-by), that car thieves do not really want. Studies show that just by locking the car doors when you can, lower the odds that you’ll become a victim  by up to 60%.

2) Install a car alarm. Most people try to tune  out alarms, but most  can not help but to see what’s going on, and it might catch a car thief in the process. Most car insurance policies offer a reasonable discount if your car is protected by an alarm.

3) Roll up your window. Again, an open window is an open invitation, especially if your doors are locked. You want your car to become as close to as Ft. Knox.

4) Park in well lit areas. Thieves do not like to be seen, and so prey on vehicles from the public eye. 

5) installing a fuel cut-off switch. This nifty little device to make sure that your friendly neighborhood car thieves are not very far. The fuel stops fuel to reach  the engine. Auto insurance companies love this one.

Lower your car insurance premiums should not be your only motivation when it comes to protecting your car from auto theft. As a fact, chances are it does not even make your Top Twenty. Your vehicle and the persons and objects in it are worth much more than you pay in or ever-Save  on Auto insurance premiums. Do you not owe it to them to protect them to the utmost?
