Increase the safety of your home for you and your family
With break-ins on the rise, it’s more important than ever to protect yourself. Here’s how.
Are you someone who locks your front door when you leave the house? What about locking your car when it’s in the driveway? Or the windows?
If the answer is no, you might want to rethink your approach because, in the last 12 months, 4.3 per cent of Australian households have been broken into, with more than 70 per cent having goods stolen, and a scary 11 per cent coming face to face with the burglar!
While most items stolen included things like mobile phones, tablets, computers, cash, power tools, jewellery and passports – some thieves even go as far as to steal their victim’s identity.
And yes, most of those items can be replaced, but when family heirlooms are stolen, there is no replacing those. And if they’re not insured, all that’s left is a heavy heart and regret for not having adequate home security.
So instead of making yourself a target for thieves, here are a few things you can do to make your home as secure as it can be.
