Have you read our advice on ‘how to keep your vehicle safe and sound’?

Three commercial vehicles have been broken into in Eastleigh recently. Having your car broken into and losing your things to thieves can be very distressing. Here are a few simple steps you can take to keep your vehicle, and what’s in it, safe.

  • Always lock it
  • Close windows and the sun roof to prevent ‘fishing’
  • Secure your number plates with tamper-resistant screws
  • Fit locking, anti-tamper wheel nuts to secure alloy wheels
  • Secure anything that’s on the outside of your vehicle
  • Take valuables with you
  • Hide electrical items and leave no clues
  • Take your documents with you
  • Park in well-lit and busier area
  • Choose your car park wisely
