Useful tips to keep your car safe from thieves

If you want to protect your car from thieves, keep in mind some of the following useful tips:

  • Park with appropriate lighting
  • Never leave the engine running
  • Never leave the keys in the car unattended
  • Make sure to take away all the valuables
  • Ensure your car’s security

Park with appropriate lighting

One of the best ways to protect your vehicle or car from thieves is to park in the area with the proper lighting. It is recommended to park your car near your home but if the streets near your home remain dark & quiet at night then it is dangerous to park the car at night. If you do not have any other option, it is recommended to install a bright outdoor light like the LED lights available in the market. Parking a car in a well-lit surrounding will not only help in theft prevention but also help to deter criminals.

Make sure your neighbors also feel comfortable with it or if they also park their vehicles outside then it would be a great idea. Make sure your outdoor lighting arrangements are up to the mark.      

Never leave the engine running

Never leave your engine running; even if you are away from your vehicle for a few moments. Leaving your engine on will not only pose mechanical hazards but also make your vehicle prone to car theft. The biggest mistake that most of the people made are to leave the car engine running when their kids are in the car. Please, take your children with you even if you are going out for a few minutes.

Another reason for people’s leaving the car with the engine running is to maintain the car’s inside temperature. However, bearing extreme temperatures for a few minutes is better than losing the car once and for all. So, please never leave the engine of the car running when going out.    

Never leave the keys in the car unattended

Make sure to pay extra attention when dealing with the car keys. One of the best ways to prevent car theft is to keep the cars key with you all the time. If you are going out, don’t leave the car keys inside the car ignition switch. Because of the latest technology, most of the cars come equipped with anti-car theft technology. Which means one can’t turn the engine on without the keys.

So leaving the car keys in the ignition switch is like an open invitation for car thieves. One should keep this point in mind at all costs. Now, even they are many mobile applications that support anti-theft car technology & allow you to track your car key with the help of your smartphone. This is how you can never lose your car keys and the chances of car theft decrease.

Pro Tip: if you have a spare car key, never give it to someone but if necessary do not forget to take the keys back as soon as possible.      

Make sure to take away all the valuables

People usually throw the extra stuff on the backseat of the car while driving. That extra stuff may contain valuables like wallet, laptop, mobile devices, or purse. Make sure you collect your stuff from the back seat when leaving the car. One of the best tips to keep your car from getting stolen is not to leave the valuables in the car when heading out because these valuables always attract carjackers or thieves.

Ensure your car’s security

There are many ways to keep your vehicle security. For example: installing anti-theft car apps & other digital security tools in your model cars. All these modern tools help you in keeping your vehicle safe.

However, you can install a steering wheel lock if your vehicles do not have the latest functions or you want to be extra careful to keep your vehicle from getting stolen. It can be very tough & make it hard for thieves’ to make any attempt for car theft.
