On November 23, 2016 By admin

Did you know that, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), in 2015 alone there were over 50,000 stolen 1996 Honda Accords reported in the US? In fact, according to the NICB, the top 10 most stolen vehicles in the US during the year of 2015 are as follows:

The stealing of vehicles from car lots, homes, and other locations across the US is a problem that affects thousands of businesses and families every single year. But just because the car that you drive was not mentioned on the list above, don’t make the mistake of assuming that your home or business is completely safe from being targeted by car thieves!

Many people are also surprised when they learn that it’s not just older model vehicles that are targeted by car thieves, as technology, while it has improved vastly over the last decade, still does not prevent every single car theft. The good news though is that there are always ways in which you can dramatically reduce the chances of your car being stolen, especially when it comes to protecting your car dealership or car lot.

Security and surveillance solutions for automotive dealerships provided by CalAtlantic will increase the overall control and oversight you have over your car lot. In addition, CalAtlantic’s surveillance solutions for car dealerships will improve the safety and security of the customers, employees, and cars at your automotive dealership. Car thieves and large criminal operations will often target car dealerships, both big and small in size, if they detect a lax sense of surveillance and little to no security system. Certain car lots and auto dealers across the country have even had several vehicles stolen at a time, only later to apprehend the suspects because the surveillance system installed within the business had captured the event on CCTV, giving law enforcement the necessary information and evidence to arrest the car thieves.

So how can CalAtlantic’s product options help your car lot or dealership protect your clients and your cars?
