Buying a car is one of the most significant investments someone can make in their entire lives. No one wishes to lose that in a blink of an eye.
But unfortunately, the reality is different and harsh. Cars get stolen every day. And when it happens, you will have to deal with it every day.
Taking public transportation, taxis, buses, and trains can be frustrating when you used to drive your car to work or college every day.
Imagine the risk you are taking every day, parking the car and walking away from it. What if you returned to that place to only find an empty space?
No one wants that. That’s why owners must take serious precautions to protect this expensive possession.
Today, we’re going to shed light on 7 clever tips and tricks you can follow to decrease the possibility of your car getting stolen.
Don’t Leave It Running
Nothing is more delicious for a thief than a running car, especially when you leave its keys inside. It’s like saying, here is my car, you can steal it with zero effort!
Keep It Locked
No matter how this might sound cliche and obvious, it’s critical. Even when you want to leave the car for only one minute or even less to fetch something from a market, you should always lock the car.
You don’t know when will someone get into it and drive away while you’re standing there watching the savings of your life running away from you!
Don’t be reckless! Lock your car, wherever you are, whenever, and no matter what.
Hide Registration and Insurance
Keep all the car papers and documents, including insurance and registration with you. Never leave them in the car; you don’t want the thief to steal it with all its documents inside and pretend that it’s theirs!
If you don’t want to take them with you wherever you go, just ensure to keep them in a safe and hidden place inside the car.
Park in a Safe Place at Night
Thieves like to work at night when everyone is asleep, and no one is keeping an eye on the streets and cars.
Park your car in your garage, even when you are 100% sure that you live in a safe area where nothing wrong could happen.
If you don’t have a garage, park it in a populated place where people can see your vehicle.
If you don’t live in such a place, leave it under some street light because thieves like to stay away from the light.
Finally, if you can’t do any of the above, park the car near your house where you can see it from your balcony.
Never Leave Your Valuables
This is a universal thing. You should never leave any valuable belongings, even closed bags on the dashboard, furniture, or any place inside the car, that’s because any passerby can see them from the car’s windows and might get tempted to break and steal.
Use GPS Tracker
A GPS tracker helps you track your car in real-time and increases the car value in Dubai.
Use a GPS tracker to know where your car is going if it gets stolen. Police and many people use GPS to keep themselves stress-free. In case anything happens, they can catch the thief easily.
Use Anti Theft Systems
Many systems and techniques can help you. For example, you can use a system that locks the steering wheel and tires in their place, which makes the car unremovable!
There are also other ways to protect the car, like ignition locks; these locks will stop your vehicle from turning on.
Now, after you learned all these tips and tricks. Pick one, two, or all of them to save your car. Drive and stay safe!
