It is autumn–a time of leaves changing, carving pumpkins and choosing Halloween costumes. But with Halloween comes Mischief Night. Mischief Night has historically been a time where pranksters cause harmless mischief. Occasionally though, vandals can use this time to cause destruction to your vehicle. Take these precautions to protect your vehicle as Mischief Night approaches.
Park in the Garage. If you have the option to park your vehicle in a garage, Mischief Night is the night to do it. Although pranks usually just involve egging or crisco-ing door handles, this type of vandalism can cause damage to the paint on your vehicle.
Keep Your Lights On. By keeping the lights on at your house and in your driveway, you can signify to the vandals that someone is home and you are watching.
Keep Valuables in the House. You should never keep valuable items in your car. Make sure that your wallet, purse or any electronic devices are secure in your home as to not attract any would be criminals.
Check Your Insurance Policy. If a vandal gets really destructive and decides to spray paint your vehicle, comprehensive car insurance will protect you from general vandalism. Before Mischief Night arrives, it might be a good idea to double check your insurance coverage.
Install the T3 Vehicle Security System. With the 911Tracker T3 Vehicle Recovery System, you are alerted the moment that your vehicle has unauthorized movement or a pre-installed vehicle alarm goes off. The alert will show you the GPS location, speed, and direction that your vehicle is traveling, and you can easily connect to the 911-Operator closest to your vehicle, allowing you to speak directly to police within seconds of the emergency. No call center is used – saving you time and money. Saving valuable time can save you, your family, your vehicle and your belongings. LoJack® doesn’t do this. OnStar® doesn’t do this. No other anti-theft system can do this. Want to start protecting your car or motorcycle? Contact us to learn more 877-744-3361!
