AAA Warns about Holiday Thefts

During this season of giving, some consumers will be making big-ticket gift purchases; unfortunately many don’t consider the possibility of theft.
AAA has some tips to keep from becoming a victim of theft this holiday season.
When leaving your vehicle in a parking lot, make sure shopping bags and gifts are not visible through the car window. Putting your bags in the trunk or another place where they are not visible can help prevent vehicle break-ins.
With more and more consumers shopping online, it’s important to take additional precautions to protect items that will be shipped to a destination. A few things that may help prevent home package theft include: using a lockbox service, requiring a signature for delivery or even installing a security camera on your porch.
AAA encourages consumers to contact their agent to go over potential discounts, discuss deductibles and see if additional coverage may be needed for big ticket purchases or unique gift items.
