Prevention Tips to help keep your vehicle safe:

(prior to your arrival location)

Park your car in a well lit area
Dont leave valuables in plain view
Never leave your car running
Consider VIN Etching .
It is a safe and effective way to protect your vehicle from being stolen. The main reason a thief steals a car is to bring it to a chop shop and strip all the parts of the vehicle. The principal behind having your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) etched into the glass is to make those parts worthless and traceable. So when a thief approaches your vehicle, statistics show the the thief will pass it, and go on to the one that has not been etched.
