Avoid becoming a target of vehicle theft

Whether or not your car made the list of the most stolen vehicles , there are some simple things you can do to deter thieves and avoid car theft — and some of them could get you a discount on car insurance, too. If your car has a keyless entry system, take these additional steps to protect your vehicle from electronic car theft.

Installing an anti-theft system can deter thieves and may help you save on insurance

One of the most effective ways to protect your vehicle from being stolen is to install an after-market anti-theft system. 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 an insurance discount, offsetting higher premiums that may apply to high-theft vehicles.

What to do if your car is stolen

Car theft can happen even when you've taken all the right steps to avoid it. Reach out to your group's licensed car insurance broker to make sure you have the right coverage to protect you in case your vehicle is ever stolen. If you discover that your car has been stolen, take these steps to kickstart your insurance claim and get back on the road.
