Cars in Parking LotThis year, there has been an increase in the number of car break-ins throughout the United States. With the holidays around the corner, it’s a sure bet that many people will be lurking around parking lots with bad intentions. However, you don’t have to become a victim. With a few tips, you can keep your gifts, your car and your low auto insurance rates.

Conceal Your Goods Before Parking

Everyone is guilty of stashing items under seats and on the floor just before getting out of your car. This is a big no-no. If someone is perusing the lot and they see you, then you just enticed them to see what it is you were trying to hide. You should conceal your valuables immediately after leaving a store. 

Park Near CCTV Locations

You may have noticed that there are more and more cameras cropping up in public areas. From retailers to local authorities, businesses are installing CCTV as a way to protect their businesses and their patrons. If you see a camera, park close to it so that you can ask for the footage if you do become the victim of a crime. And with footage of the crime, you may have an easier time filing a car insurance claim.

Park Away from Other Cars

Although everyone wants the closest spot near the building, it may not be the best park to discourage break-ins. With hundreds of cars parked close together, you may be providing the perfect cover for thieves. If you are parking in a lot, you should park away from other cars so that a break-in would be obvious to onlookers.

Always Go with Your Gut

Observing your surroundings is one of the best defenses you have during the holidays. If you get a bad vibe about a location, go somewhere else to shop. Even though you may want to get the best deals, it’s not worth putting yourself in danger. If you see questionable individuals lurking around retail stores, play it safe and visit another location. 

Car break-ins will likely be on the rise during the holiday season. Fortunately, you can reduce the chances that your car will be burglarized by making your car a less appealing target to thieves.
