Many homeowners fill their garage with so much old furniture and so many boxes of old stuff that they end up parking their cars in the driveway or the street.

By cleaning out the garage and parking your vehicle inside, you can protect yourself in two ways.

First, you prevent your car from being stolen, broken into or otherwise vandalized.

Second, if your car is regularly parked inside, it’s harder for a potential thief to track your comings and goings.

Don’t forget to shut the garage door whenever you don’t need access to it.
