Car theft is a problem in many areas of the country, including Phoenix, AZ. The agents of Genesis Insurance understand the frustration clients feel when their car is stolen or broken into. The following three tips will help you keep your car safe and possibly prevent it from being stolen or damaged by vandals.
Park in an Illuminated Area
If you must park your car outside, always park in an area where street lights are nearby. Illuminated areas make it harder for a car thief to get into your car without being seen. It also ensures that your car can be seen by nearby surveillance cameras if someone does try to get into it.
Always Lock Your Car
Always lock your car. It also helps to make sure that nothing of value is visible from the outside. Newer cars have electronic locks that can be managed through an app or with a compatible key fob. When you lock your car, always take your keys with you. Never leave them where they are visible.
Set Your Car Alarm
Locking your car isn’t always enough. Set your car alarm for an added layer of protection. If your car doesn’t have an alarm, you can have one installed for an affordable price.
