Vehicle Protection

Protect your cars

  • Don’t make it easy for thieves. Believe it or not, most cars are stolen because they’re unlocked. Say no more.
  • Never leave the keys in the ignition: a prime example is when paying for petrol or warming your car on an icy.
  • Hide car documents and keys at home.
  • Think about where you’re parking. Use a well-lit, secure car park rather than a dark alley. Also, think about your personal safety when returning to your car.
  • Don’t leave anything– CDs, chequebooks, even an old coat – on show inside as they may be tempting for thieves.
  • Consider investing and using an alarm as a deterrent.

Protect your bicycles

  • With over 100,000 bikes stolen every year, you can’t be too protective.
  • Use a sturdy lock like a D-lock. Chains can be cut.
  • Lock both tyres, and remove any extras (like lights or seats if removable).
  • Record your bikes frame reference, as well as, it’s make and model onto
  • If you can’t find a secure bike store, lock up your bike where it can be seen – in a busy street, or near somewhere with good lighting and CCTV.
  • Finally, if it gets stolen report to the police.

Protect your motor bikes & scooters

  • Always lock it to something immovable (some insurance companies won’t pay out unless you’ve done this).
  • Put a steering lock on and use a strong steel cable or D-lock.
  • Get a combined alarm/ immobiliser fitted by a professional.
  • Take the same precautions about where you park as you would with a car.
  • Have the bike, engine and windscreen etched with the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or your parent’s postcode.
