Save on insurance by installing an anti-theft system
Installing an after-market anti-theft system is one of the most effective ways to protect your vehicle from being stolen. Not only can this help reduce your chances of becoming a target for car thieves, but an anti-theft system that tracks your vehicle's location can also help with the recovery of your vehicle if it's stolen. It could also qualify you for a car insurance discount, offsetting higher premiums that may apply to high-theft vehicles.
