Because your ingenie black box has a GPS unit in it, we can help find your car if it's stolen.
We've had a lot of success with helping the police recover vehicles stolen from our customers - sometimes within an hour of them being reported missing.
You can call us on 0330 303 0021 to report your car stolen 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Duh, obvious. Sure - but because young drivers tend to have older cars, you need to check the car has actually locked. Taking 2 seconds to physically try the door handle before you walk away could save you a massive headache.
When it's cold and you're waiting for the car to warm up, surely it's OK to just pop back in the house for your gloves? Nope. One of our drivers had her car stolen when her dad left the engine running while he went to get his golf clubs.
Valuables that would make someone break into your car could be anything from a satnav or phone to a nice jacket. Lock them in the glove box or boot, or throw a blanket over your shopping. Better yet - don't leave nice things in the car. It's asking for trouble.
It's much harder to steal a car if you're lit up like Christmas. With CCTV and nosy neighbours, a car thief is unlikely to feel comfortable trying to gain entry under a streetlight. If you can, avoid parking in dark spots.
A GPS tracker (which cost around £200 plus running costs) will make sure you can locate your car if it's stolen. Or you could just insure with ingenie and let us do the work for you.
Our black boxes (which cost exactly £0 with your policy) have a GPS tracker in them, so if your car's gone missing, it hopefully won't be long before we find it for you.
