6 Ways to Protect Yourself Against Auto Theft

Even though Umialik will be there to respond to your auto theft claim, having your vehicle (or your personal property inside) stolen is never fun. That's why it's important to remember a few simple theft prevention rules like these listed below.

Remember - most personal property (i.e., your belongings and possessions) is actually not covered under an auto policy, even when it's stolen or damaged while in your car. Instead, this property is usually insured by a homeowners'/renters' policy. Be sure to check with your Independent Insurance Agent to learn more about how your coverage applies in property theft situations.
