Protect Your Dealership From Loss And Vandalism

Posted by Norm Charney on Mar 18, 2015

Theft and vandalism is a big concern for owners of car dealerships.

The FBI reports that a motor vehicle is stolen every 44 seconds in the United States. In Orlando Beach, FL it is estimated that 4 out of 10 car thefts occur at dealerships. Losses from stolen merchandise and acts of vandalism can result in higher insurance rates, loss of revenue, and more.

Video Cameras Provide Theft Prevention and Evidence

In January 2015 in Syracuse, NY a break in at a car dealership resulted in $9,000 worth of tires and rims being taken from just two trucks. They have not been recovered and there is no evidence to help track down the culprits. Strategically placed video cameras not only discourage theft, they provide valuable evidence that can help you to prosecute and recover stolen property.

Vandalism Prevention

Even a few incidents of vandalism can cause a lot of hassle and damage to your car dealership. With video cameras it is possible to catch vandals the first time the act occurs. In fact if it is known that your dealership is monitored it is likely that vandals will choose an easier target. Signs that alert the general public to the fact that your business is monitored can also deter crime.
