It is advisable to take steps to ensure you’re not a victim of vehicle theft. Simply ensuring your vehicle locks are in working condition is a great place to start. However, installing an aftermarket immobilizer or alarm system provides further security. Also, try to avoid leaving your keys in obvious places around your home.
Unfortunately in many cases when thieves break into a house they may take as many keys as they can so they may come back later to steal a vehicle. Terry’s Locksmiths highly recommend having your vehicles locks changed and your keys re-coded as soon as possible to avoid potential car theft.
Most modern cars are equipped with transponders which generally means a simple screw driver or tampering with the ignition will not start the car. Most older cars don’t have the transponder system to stop thieves. A simple steering column lock or brake lock is a great deterrent to install on older vehicles.
Motorcycles are unfortunately much easier for thieves to steal. Terry’s Locksmiths supply a range of motorcycle locks. We offer an array of options…alarmed brake locks, tyre chains and padlocks are a great way to secure your bike.
