Protect Your Car from Theft During Your Summer Road Trip Travels

A summer road trip is one of the many perks of summer. By planning ahead and taking precautions to protect your vehicle on the road, you can look forward to safer, more enjoyable vacation travels. Here are a few tips from United Insurance Services Inc. in Bluffdale, UT to help keep your car safe from theft during a long-distance road trip.  

Theft Prevention Tips During Road Trip Travels

If you’re like most people, you’re probably more concerned about breakdowns on the road than having your vehicle stolen. Car theft, however, is a risk anytime you’re far from home. By taking the following precautions, you can reduce that risk and protect your vehicle and its contents:

  • Park your vehicle in well-lit, trafficked areas when stopping for meals or breaks to discourage thieves from making your car a target.
  • Close your sunroof and windows completely and lock your doors anytime you leave your vehicle unattended. When temperatures soar, it’s tempting to leave your sunroof open or crack your windows, but that makes your vehicle easier prey for theft.
  • Never leave valuable items in your car in plain sight, as they make your vehicle a more appealing target. If possible, store all luggage, sports gear, and camping equipment in the trunk where it’s out of sight, out of mind.
  • Never hide spare fobs or keys in or on your vehicle as it makes your vehicle that much easier to steal when you’re not there.
  • Invest in a car alarm and/or steering wheel lock for extra protection against car theft when traveling far from home.
