Car Covers and Theft

July 13th, 2018 by

As a car dealership, we at Mercedes-Benz of Des Moines want to make sure you know everything you need to know about how to protect your vehicle. In this post, we will go over a lesser-known benefit of using a car cover.

Usually we think of car covers as something that protects cars from damage. However, they also have a secondary effect of deterring car thieves. This happens for two reasons. The first is that it makes it hard to tell what model car you have. Car theft targets cars with resale value, so you are making it harder to tell if your car is worth taking. The other impact is it takes longer to carry out the theft, which increases the risk of getting caught.

If your car needs service and you live near Urbandale, please consider coming to us.
