General vehicle security

  • Photograph your vehicle – noting any identifiable marks.
  • Security-mark your vehicle. Etch the windows and other areas with the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), making it more difficult to be sold on.
  • Lock all doors and windows every time you leave your vehicle and if you’ve got an alarm or immobiliser, use it.
  • Consider fitting anti-tamper screws to your number plate to reduce the risk of theft.
  • Make sure your vehicle and its contents are insured and your policy is updated as soon as anything changes.
  • Consider using a lockable fuel cap and investing in a steering or gear lock.
  • Drive a 4×4 or large vehicle? Security mark and secure your catalytic converter as these are easier to remove.
