The burglars in Seattle are always on the lookout for some items that they can lay their hands on. They just wait for a mistake from your side and then take advantage of it. Usually the burglars are successful because they find themselves in a position of opportunity. If you take away the opportunity, the burglars fail.
If you wish to protect your car and the items in it from a burglary you can follow some tips given by people who have been victims of a burglary at some time or another in their life.
Use detachable items
There are some accessories in the car that you use for an enjoyable and comfortable ride. For example, a stereo system and other such items. If you were to use a detachable stereo face then the burglar may not be interested in stealing a stereo system that will not be useful and can’t be used.
So you should always a car audio receiver which has a detachable panel. Also, you need to be careful when you alight from the car to take it with you. Or else the purpose of having a detachable set may not be served. Your foolishness will help the burglar to show his or her smartness.
Store things surreptitiously
Unfortunately, we have to carry many things in our car when traveling. Many of them can be valuable too. You need to store them in such a way that they are not immediately visible to a stranger. The thief is on the lookout for things that are of value (purses, electronics, jewelry.) If something is in their sight he or she will immediately grab it. It is prudent to keep your briefcase, or box or any other items in some trunks so that a break in can be avoided.
Security is the first step
Keep your car locked always when you are out of it. And keep your keys in a safe place. Especially when you go shopping and park your car should be kept locked. Sometimes you mean to come back in just a minute or two. Then you don’t lock it. The burglar acts over smart at such a time and runs away with your car. All that is left for you is to file a police complaint. You missed to keep your car safe and you lost it. Security of your valuables should be your priority in public places.
Get a car alarm
Keeping an alarm in your car is many a time annoying that is goes off at the wrong time. If a thief sees an alarm in any car he or she will keep off it for sure. But some cars have some dummy alarms or the manufacturer will place a product on the car that will look like an alarm. This will keep the burglars off the car. A big break-in is prevented.
Public location parking is the best
Putting your car in a corner place thinking it is a private place may attract a burglar more than a place in the public place. The secret place is not accessible to anyone and the thief may be looking for such places and if he or she finds a car there he or she may steal it with ease. It is safe in a public place where many people come and go.
