Most car owners don’t think about car theft until it’s too late. With the rising number of cars being stolen every year, it’s important to learn how to protect your car from theft.

According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a car is stolen every 44 seconds in the US. 50% of those stolen cars do get recovered, however, they are in very bad shape. This is mainly because stolen cars are stripped down for car parts quickly.

If you’ve bought a new car and are worried about it getting stolen, here are some of the best tips that will help protect your car from theft:


Park Your Car in a Good Location

One of the first things you can do to protect your car from theft is to park your vehicle thoughtfully so that car burglars don’t get the chance to steal it. While there have been robberies in broad daylight, it decreases the chances of a robber boldly breaking into your vehicle. Parking in well-lit areas close to building entrances or security cameras.


Don’t Leave Valuables in the Car


Try not to leave anything valuable in the car when you leave it parked, it’s an invitation for a thief to break the windows and get inside and to steal your belongings. Leaving your laptop, smartphone, and other valuables out in the open isn’t advised. If you must leave them inside, ensure that they are placed in the trunk or in the dashboard where they aren’t visible.


Always Secure the Car When You Park

This one seems obvious but you’d be surprised to learn the number of times people have forgotten to lock all the doors and windows of their cars. Thieves and car robbers are counting on you to forget car security measures when you leave it parked.


Use a Physical Anti-Theft Device
