Vehicle theft is big business. If you are a business owner and you have a service vehicle or a fleet of service vehicles, they can be particularly vulnerable because of the value contained within them. Consider the following ways to protect your service vehicles.
Tinted Windows and Safety Glass
A very effective way to deter thieves from targeting a service vehicle is by tinting windows to the highest legal level and having shatterproof glass. It is a two-fold approach since thieves will not be able to see what’s inside the vehicle and even if they try a smash-and-grab the window won’t shatter if they do try to break in.
Place Valuables Out of Sight
One of the best ways to deter thieves is by placing valuables out of sight. Be sure to put important documents in the glove box and keep equipment and electronics hidden away. Thieves are less likely to break in if there doesn’t look like there is anything of value to take.
Keep the Car Secure
Keep the doors locked and the windows up whenever your vehicle is unattended. Do not leave an extra set of keys in the car and if you have to park along a curb, keep your front wheels turned in.
Use an Anti-theft Device
By installing a T3 tracker, you not only save money, but you’ll have peace of mind in knowing that your vehicle has a voice. The T3 alerts you via text if your vehicle alarm is triggered or if the car makes an unauthorized movement. It provides you with the GPS coordinates of the vehicle, the direction it is going in, and the speed it is traveling. You also have the ability to connect to 911 and the authorities closest to your vehicle’s location via three-way call. You can also disable the starter and unlock the doors via secure message.
Your service vehicle isn’t just for transportation, but it also acts as a warehouse for your equipment. Don’t risk losing thousands of dollars in equipment and hours of work, protect your vehicle today. Let us help you get started, https://www.911tracker.com/contact-us.
