It’s summertime and that means vacation!
Before heading out on that summer vacay, 49th Street Bail Bonds wants to remind you of tips for keeping your home and car secure from thieves.
Follow these tips to help protect your belongings and home:
•Lock it! Lock the doors in your home (front, back, and garage) and lock your car doors.
•Don’t advertise your plans on social media. Post your pictures when you return.
•Disconnect your garage door.
•Install outdoor sensor lights.
•Make your home appear lived in. Have lights, tv, etc on timers. Have a neighbor or family member stop by and bring in the mail and check the house.
•Keep up your regular home maintenance schedule. If you usually have the lawn mowed or the pool serviced then continue to do so.
•Secure your valuables. In your home, consider putting them in a safe or stashing them somewhere besides the master bedroom. In your car, put valuables in the trunk, center console, or glove box. If that isn’t possible, hide them with blankets. Don’t advertise your valuables!
•Consider an alarm system for both your home and your car.
•Alter your car GPS so it doesn’t lead a thief straight to your home. Use a nearby address such as a business or intersection instead. You don’t want a thief to steal your car from the airport and then head straight to your home to steal there, do you?
•Don’t leave money laying around your home or visible in your car. This includes spare change.
•Park in a well-lit area to deter thieves from breaking into your car.
49th Street Bail Bonds wants you to enjoy your vacation without worrying that your home or car is being burglarized.
