Throughout our lives, we’ve heard stories about all kinds of heroes, but we can’t oversee the problem that there are many thieves as well. Some lift from stores, others snatch and run, then there are the ones who steal your car!
Car thieves, car-nappers, or simply ‘chor,’ call them whatever you in, but several cases of cars stolen or car parts were stolen are common in Pakistan. These individuals sell the vehicle or its parts ahead for a decent amount of money.
If you have seen CCTV footage of such incidents, you can see that it’s only a matter of seconds before they use their techniques to steal your side mirrors, stereo, or the entire car itself.
So today, we will give you a couple of essential tips that may help you sleep better at night, knowing that your car is safe.
Tips To Save Your Car From Theft In Pakistan
1. Park in Safe & Trusted Locations
No one knows your residential area better than you do. One of the best preventive measures you can take to keep your car safe is to park wisely. Stay away from dark alleys and other shady places where you may have seen a group of strangers hanging out.
Thieves have a limited time-frame to steal cars and are often in a hurry. They won’t spend a lot of time fooling around, which gives you leverage! If you think just parking your car is not enough, you can always cover it up as well.
Often, the stealers know what models they are targeting and on the look-out for certain parts. But, if your car is covered, they won’t know which model you own and may choose another target instead.
3. Rotate Parking Spots & Schedule
If the thief is a nearby resident, there’s a good chance that the individual has been monitoring the cars in the areas, including where the vehicles are usually parked and at what time. It’s a smart idea to shift your car’s parking (if possible) so that you remain unpredictable. Changes in time tables also give you a plus.
4. Avoid Leaving Valuables
We often forget a lot of things, including leaving our keys or mobile phones in the car. But, the left-behind valuables make your vehicle a possible target. The individuals are highly trained at spotting the items, breaking the windows, and picking up the valuables in minutes. If you can’t overcome your habit, you can always use window covers to prevent visibility.
5. Hide An Old Tablet/GPS Tracker
Just like how you can track an iPhone or Android phone using applications, your car can also be traced too. These handy GPS trackers help the authorities locate the exact location of the vehicle and help capture those behind the car-napping.
