BEST security PART DEALS MINIMUM EFFORT!
Your vehicle's security is an important aspect to driving today and, along with security devices such as a car alarm, you can also install an effective immobiliser. There's no doubt that older cars tend to be an easier target for professional and opportunist thieves so simple steps can help prevent the theft of your vehicle. Simple security steps will help make your vehicle less attractive to a thief and also prevent the hassle caused should your car or van be broken into or stolen.
Security to help prevent your car from being stolen
Regardless of the age of your vehicle, the security steps you can take to help prevent your car from being stolen are relatively easy and inexpensive. There is a demand for older cars to be stolen with thieves taking the car or van to be stripped down for spare parts. This is a particular problem for older, more expensive vehicles with owners keen to keep them running. Also, whether your car is new or old, it may be stolen to order so you will need an effective immobiliser to help prevent theft.
Fitting security systems
All vehicle owners should consider fitting security systems or having their current one upgraded should they believe it's not suitable. The immobiliser will help prevent your vehicle from being driven away and it's often fitted with an additional alarm to offer an extra deterrent from car and van thieves. If you are considering the installation of an immobiliser for your vehicle, then it's important that it is Thatcham approved, so you can be reassured that it offers a good level of security and protection. It's also important to understand that a car security alarm may also prevent someone stealing from the car itself rather than having the car taken. It will help to ensure you not only lock the doors to prevent this but make sure the windows are closed to prevent an opportunist thief swiping something from a car seat, for example.
Boost your car's security
There are also some very good mechanical immobilisers available to help boost your car's security, such as wheel clamps or steering wheel locks. The clamp is fitted to a wheel and locked into place so the van or car cannot be moved. Using a steering wheel lock means the wheel cannot be turned without being removed first and will help prevent a thief from stealing your vehicle because it's another obstacle they have to deal with once they have broken in. Other car security ideas include installing a remote central locking system to help with keyless entry and some drivers may opt for locking wheel nuts to help prevent the theft of expensive alloy wheels, for example.
Searching for car security items
If you are searching for car security items, then it's important that you source them from a reputable supplier and they meet your vehicle manufacturer's recommendations and the MorePartz site can help.
