Protecting your vehicle, whatever its value!
This August Bank Holiday weekend sees the British round of the MotoGP™ world championship arriving at Silverstone.
The combined worth of those incredible vehicles is in the millions and, no doubt, they have round-the-clock protection.
Our own vehicles come with a decidedly smaller price tag, but are actually more prone to theft. Latest Home Office stats reveal that 111,999 cars were stolen in 2017-18 (one every five minutes!), which is up by nearly 50% in five years.
Criminal gangs targeting vehicles with keyless systems is at the heart of this shocking rise in vehicle crime.
Money Super Market recently released a list of the areas most prone to car theft, with London’s Ilford and Romford at the top spots and Kirkwall in the Orkney Islands at the other end, being the safest place for your car.
If you are aged 40-49 you are the most likely to have your car stolen, whereas 17-19 year olds are the least likely, no doubt because they can only afford cars that are less desirable to thieves.
So, what can you do to protect your car/motorbike?
