Theft of Vehicles

Most car thefts occur in or around private residences, so it is important to take steps to protect your car even when it is parked in a garage, driveway or on a residential street.
 
Consider consulting a trusted installer for advice on what precautions are best suited for your vehicle type:

  • An anti-theft device such as an immobilizer, visible locking device, ignition shield or battery isolator.  There are many different types and all provide the same level of protection.
  • A car alarm and/or steering wheel lock.
  • A bonnet lock.
  • A GPS tracking device.
 
Keep a record of all vehicle details for telephoning police:

  • Registration number and state registered
  • Vehicle make, colour, type, model, body type
  • Upholstery colour, Auto/Manual
  • Year of make, engine number
  • Vin/Chassis number
  • Radio fitted
  • Anti-theft device
  • LPG fitted
  • Insurance Company
