Over a million vehicles will be stolen this year. Don't be a statistic - so called "factory security" simply does not provide the protection you need to keep your vehicle and its contents safe.
It's pretty simple really. There are bad people out there who want to steal your vehicle, or break your window and steal contents out of your car. According to the FBI, nationwide in 2006 there were an estimated 1.2 million motor vehicle thefts, with property losses estimated at $7.9 billion, averaging nearly $6,650 per stolen vehicle. And that doesn't take into account the value of contents stolen from vehicles ($1.3 billion) plus accessories like wheels, airbags and headlights stolen off vehicles (nearly $530 million).
Experts recommend Layers of Protection
The four major layers recommended by the National Insurance Crime Bureau are:
- Common Sense
- Warning Device
- Immobilizing Device
- Tracking Device
When your vehicle gets stolen – it opens up a can of worms. You need a police report, and then you need to deal with your insurance company. Then you have to rent a car, or bum rides from people, or take the bus. You might get your car back or you might not, which delays your decision to buy another one. And if you do get it back it might be trashed. It's so much better to avoid having your car stolen in the first place, with a well-installed alarm.(Courtesy Of Viper.com)
