Car theft or damage seems to be more common in Auckland lately.
Of course, we see plenty of it. Whilst it is a good idea not to leave valuables in the vehicle, we still see lots of vehicles having been broken into where nothing was in the vehicle. (Not even a flash stereo!).
The best advice we can offer to help prevent this type of car break-in:
* Don’t park your vehicle in a dimly lit street
* Don’t have obvious sticker on the outside of the vehicle advertising what type of stereo or alarm equipment might be installed.
* Don’t assume that a paid car parking building will guarantee no break-ins (because of camera’s etc). We go to HEAPS of jobs in parking buildings.
