• Remove the ignition key when you get out of the vehicle, even when parking in your own drive or at a petrol station.
  • Never leave a door unlocked or a window or sunroof open, even when just going into a shop for a moment or two.
  • Don’t leave any belongings in your vehicle. A thief won’t know that a bag or coat doesn’t contain something valuable and might break a window to get at it. If you can’t take them with you, lock them out of sight.
  • Don’t leave money, credit cards or cheque books in the glove compartment.
  • Never leave your vehicle documents in the vehicle; they could help a thief to sell it.
  • If you can, leave the vehicle in a locked garage and lock both your vehicle and the garage. If you do not have a garage, try to park in a well-lit, open space.
  • At home, ensure your vehicle keys are kept in a safe place, out of sight and away from windows and doors.
  • When parking in a public car park, look for one that is well supervised, with restricted entry and exit points, good lighting and security cameras. Wherever possible use Park Mark® car parks – details of approved Park Mark® car parks can be found here.
  • Etch the vehicle’s registration number on all glass surfaces – windows, sunroofs etc. Thieves don’t want the expense of replacement.
  • If your vehicle is not fitted with an alarm or immobiliser, consider fitting one which is Thatcham approved. Also think about fitting a tracking device especially if you have a high-performance or an expensive vehicle.

"The questions were straightforward and the adviser explained anything I wasn't sure of clearly. The whole process was quick and easy with an immediate quote at the end. Within about 15 minutes I had completed the questions, received my quote and my insurance was all set up. Thank You!"

Mrs Curtis Mobile Beautician, Lowestoft (Customer since January 2018)

"They were able to provide a bespoke package so that I only got cover for what I needed as opposed to all the unnecessary parts of a standard package policy. The staff were very polite and willing to listen to my needs.”"

Mr Livesey, Newsagents, Kendal (Customer since August 2017)

"Professional, efficient, friendly and thorough service. They fully understood my specific business requirements, and sorted out an insurance policy which not only exceeded my previous cover, but was also a lot cheaper."

Mr Jones, Gym/Health Club, Essex (Customer since January 2018)
