Modern Vehicle Crime

What's the big deal?

It can only takes around 2 hours to dismantle a vehicle for it's parts. Drivers who fit a good security device are up to ten times less likely to have their vehicle stolen. We have some practical ways to help keep you car safe at home:

Store keys in a lead lined box or wallet

By keeping your car keys in a lead lined box or wallet it will block the radio signal between the key and the vehicle will be blocked, meaning that thieves will be unable to hack the signal and gain entry to your car.

Keep car in a secured garage

If you have a garage then we would recommend keeping your vehicle out of sight in a locked garage when at home, especially overnight. This will help to deter thieves as they cannot simply take it off your driveway.

Fit a tracking device if possible

Vehicles can still be recovered after they've been stolen by fitting your vehicle with a tracking device. You can set up the tracker to notify you when the vehicle has been removed from your property, for example.

Install an additional immobiliser

By fitting an additional immobiliser device to your vehicle, it will prevent the engine from running unless the correct key or token is present. Meaning that thieves can’t start the vehicle even if they boost the car key signal.

Invest in a steering wheel lock

These act as a deterrent as potential thieves cannot turn the wheel of the car.

Thieves are always finding new ways around vehicle security and therefore car and vehicle owners have to be more vigilant and proactive in how they protect their vehicle. Preventing thieves from gaining entry to your van is sometimes a necessity, especially with the news that some vans can be opened within seconds with an air wedge.
