Theft Prevention for Cars

Knowing that the way to steal a modern car is to get hold of the keys, car thieves have adapted the way they operate.

Nowadays the thieves want your keys. By burgling houses, carjacking, test-driving cars for sale, getting into the unattended car at fuel stations and jumping in when a car's been left running to warm up, they can steal what they like. Knowing that you don't need to be able to break into a car to steal it, you just need the keys, the thieves can now steal cars to order, and they can steal desirable cars despite high levels of security. Once they've got the car and someone ready to take it off their hands, an untracked vehicle will be incredibly difficult to recover.

Most things you can do to prevent this are free and easy.

You can also consider improving your car's standard security. Adrian Flux have worked closely with GAP Security to get good deals for our clients. You can call GAP on 0800 7832165; let them know that you were sent as an Adrian Flux client to get the best deals on upgraded security.

We would welcome an increase in security and may even be able to offer a discount. But, as a modern thief is well aware, the easiest way of you preventing your own car from adding to our theft statistics is for you to recognise and understand that, to a modern thief, your keys are as desirable as your car itself.
