Huddersfield Car Crime

21/10/2016

West Yorkshire Police are warning car owners to stay vigilant after a spate of car theft and vandalism in Huddersfield.

In a craze that started off down South but has now spread to Huddersfield and its surrounding areas, thieves are stealing parts of cars to order. Bonnets, bumpers, headlights and in some cases entire front ends have been entirely stripped from cars throughout the night.

A police spokesperson has said “Our advice would be to park your car on your drive if you have one and if you have a garage use it to keep your car in rather than for storage. If not, then try to park in a well-lit area.”

Here at Huddersfield Garage doors we know just how important a well-maintained garage door is when ensuring the safety of your garage and the car within. Make sure you are not neglecting the maintenance of mechanical parts of your garage and your locking system is up-to-date and working properly. You want the lock on your garage to be as secure as the one on your front door.

Another simple tip you can follow to keep your home and car safe is to frost or cover any windows your garage may have, this way thieves will not know whether or not you are home or what type of vehicle you have. Finally, never leave your garage door remote in your vehicle, if your car is unfortunately broken into, the thief will have an easy way into your home.

If you a worried about the security of your garage door and are looking for a secure replacement, then do not hesitate to get in touch with the team at Huddersfield Garage Doors, who are more than happy to help.
