The holidays are one of the most delightful times of the year. Friends and family gather together to celebrate and create precious memories. With winter right around the corner, most of us are already starting to stash back holiday gifts for our families this year. But with all of that emphasis on gift-giving on the rise, something else is on the rise, too: holiday crime. In fact, the holiday season is one of the most likely times to experience vehicle burglary or theft.


At Mobile Installation in Brooklyn Park, we believe in doing everything we can to help Minnesota residents protect their cars, their property, and their families. In this post, we’ll talk about how we can help you protect your car from theft this holiday season.


Holiday Shopping and Holiday Theft

If you’re concerned about the rise in holiday vehicle theft this holiday season, you’re not alone. The Twin Cities are beautiful during Christmas time, but every big city sees a natural boost in crime around the holidays. However, it’s important to remember that most criminals are opportunistic. If they have to choose between two cars to break into, they’re always going to go for the easy target. That’s why it’s our job to help you make sure your car is not one.


Here are a few things you can do to help reduce the chance of crime:


1.      Never leave your vehicle running

2.      Avoid leaving valuables in plain sight

3.      Always close your windows and roof

4.      Keep your doors locked while you’re in the vehicle

5.      Use a map application to safely get where you’re going and avoid high-crime areas

6.      Be vigilant when you’re shopping at night and stay aware of your environment

7.      Park in well-lit areas only


Car Security Solutions

In addition to the advice listed above, it’s important to invest in an anti-theft device and other aftermarket car security equipment designed to protect your vehicle and those who count on it. Thieves are not likely to engage with a vehicle that boasts a solid car alarm system. If you have a car that doesn’t come with power locks and windows, these are an important security feature we can add. Or consider installing an inverter in your vehicle so you’re never caught without a phone charge in an emergency.
