It’s a sad but true fact: We see many customers each week for auto glass replacement due to vandalism. Unfortunately, sometimes your vehicle will simply be in the wrong place at the wrong time. But at other times, there are things you can do to avoid being a target for vandals. Here are three tips to help you prevent auto glass damage due to vandalism.
- First, make sure any valuables in your car are hidden. This is one of the leading causes of car break-ins. It’s always a good idea to bring anything of worth into your house. However, if you must leave these items in your car, make sure they’re locked away in a secure place like your glove box or trunk.
- Next, park your car as close to your home (or the places you’re visiting) as possible. Add extra outdoor lighting and motion sensors on your property to add an extra measure of security. If you’re parking elsewhere, choose a spot that is well-lit.
- Finally, let your local police department or sheriff’s office know if you plan to leave your car parked in any place for a long time. This includes in your driveway (if you’re going on vacation, for example) or public places like your office parking lot. They’ll be happy to drive by and make sure your vehicle is undisturbed.
