Car dealers, car showrooms and garages are a particularly attractive target for criminals. High value cars, vans and trucks are left on display overnight and at weekends often with car audio and in-car-entertainment devices left in the vehicles.
Drawbacks of certain security measures.
Physical security devices such as high fences can be used to protect vehicles and premises but these can prevent potential buyers browsing stock when the dealership is closed. Barriers and wheel clamps can be used for car dealer security but these are perceived as an impractical nuisance by salespeople who are reluctant to remove the security device to give a prospect a test drive.
A specific security issue faced by new car dealers is the swell in vehicle numbers on site at certain times of the year. For example, on the lead up to new car registrations in March and September car dealers see massive increases in vehicles on site. Most of these vehicles are awaiting delivery to customers. Any theft or damage to these vehicles just prior to delivery often leads to cancellation by the customer. Securicall is able to provide short term security cover to car dealers at these peak times.
