Theft robbery

How thieves know when and where to steal your car.

Even though most people think that car thefts are just random, most car thefts always involve people close to you or someone who has had some stake in your car such as your mechanic, car dealer or former owner.

This is because there are some thieves who have the tendency of installing car trackes on cars without the owners permission with the aim of stealing it. They do this by the help of the car dealer who is selling you the car or your mechanic. The main reason for tracking device is to know your daily routine and to know when and where they can easily steal it from you.
