5 Ways to Protect Your Vehicle During Vacation Travels

Road trips are fast becoming a favorite way for families to spend their summer vacation. By taking necessary precautions, you can enjoy your road trip to the full without worrying about theft, vandalism or other inconveniences on the road. Insurance protection from The Sanford Group. in Ball Ground, GA is your first step to safeguarding your vehicle while on vacation. Here are a few other ways you can protect your car and personal goods during your travels.

Choose Parking Spaces Wisely

Whether you’re stopping to eat or sight-see, choose your parking wisely. Whenever possible, park your car in areas that are safe, well- lit and clearly visible to others.

Lock Up When Leaving Car

Make sure you roll up all windows and lock all doors, even if you’re only getting out for a short time. A professional car thief will take advantage of any carelessness on your part to steal your vehicle.   

Self-park at Restaurants or Tourist Spots

If you’re new to an area, you may feel uncomfortable turning your car over to valet parking. Sometimes it’s best to follow your intuition. You never know when someone will be tempted to drive off with your vehicle or steal valuables from inside your car.

Invest in Anti-Theft Devices

Invest in a few anti-theft devices such as steering wheel lock or baby monitor video camera to use during your travels. Anti-theft devices will deter would-be car thieves, giving you that extra protection you need.

Keep Bags and Suitcases Out of Sight

Store bags and valuables in the trunk where they’re out of sight. If your car doesn’t have a trunk, make sure these items are hidden from view to reduce the temptation of anyone passing by.
