We at Heydari Financial Group, serving Houston, TX, recommend taking certain steps to protect your car from a break in. Here are a few ways that you can do that.
Close Your Windows
When it is hot outside, you may crack the windows on your car or leave your sunroof open a tiny bit. This may help to keep your car cooler. However, it also allows thieves easier access to your car. Close all of the windows to your car when you exit the vehicle.
Park in Lit Areas
A thief wants to go undetected and remain under the radar. As such, they are less likely to break into a car that is in a well-lit area than they are into one that is in a darker area. It becomes easier for the thief to work in areas where it is hard to identify them should they be caught in the act.
Don’t Keep Valuables in the Car
The last tip to prevent your car from a break in is to remove all valuables from your car. If you are shopping and have bags, place them in a trunk. If a thief can see items, they are more likely to break into your car. However, if your car looks empty, there may be no incentive to break in and steal.
