Lock the doors to your vehicle at all times no matter where it is parked.

In our last article we left off talking about making sure that your car is empty. You need to make sure that your car is clean and free of any of your gadgets.

Make sure you have all of this stuff out of site.
Whenever you are parking your vehicle you should check around for working streetlights. Leaving your car parked in the dark is going to leave it vulnerable to break ins. In order to deter that you should always park your vehicle in an area that has plenty of light. Also, if you’re parking in a lot the closer your are to the middle and front of the lot the better you are. If you’re parked towards the back there are usually less people around and more of a chance for your car to be hit up.
There are also some things that you can do to the exterior of your home that can keep those burglars away from your house and car. The best thing you can do is set up motion sensor lights that will click on whenever anyone comes near your home or driveway. These motion sensors can scare the burglars away and your stuff is totally safe.

We all know how important it is to keep all of your expensive items out of site whenever you leave your vehicle alone. If you put everything away then those burglars are likely going to skip over your vehicle because they are looking to work quickly. This is why it is extremely important to put all of your “extras” in the trunk of your vehicle. Things like suitcases, sports equipment, shopping bags, and so on. Leaving absolutely nothing in your vehicle is going to be the best bet in order to prevent people from trying to break into your car.
Chances are the more expensive your vehicle is the more likely someone is going to want to break into it. They’ll assume you have a ton of money and expensive gadgets in your vehicle that they can make money on. We also have to weigh the fact that some people aren’t just going to steal items, but they’ll try to steal your whole vehicle. However, this could also work in your favor. A lot of nice vehicles now come with engine immobilizers that can actually prevent someone from stealing your vehicle and can improve the chances of them being caught.
Keeping your car clean is going to benefit you far more than what you would think. Some burglars may break into your vehicle and just start grabbing literally everything that they see even if it’s not worth much at all. It would be better if you kept everything out of site so that your car looks empty. This means your phone charger, auxiliary cords, GPS systems, and so on need to be put up.
