Catalytic Converter Thefts
Please be vigilant. Over recent days we have had a number of catalytic converter thefts locally.
The Precious metal in Catalytic Convertors has led to an increase in theft across the country. Together with our partners, we are committed to tackling the issue.
Here are some of the steps you can take to protect your car.
Protect your car by asking your car dealer if they can give you any advice on locks or guards that are approved by the vehicle manufacturer and tested to Sold Secure Gold.
Mark your catalytic convertor with a forensic marker and register your convertor to make it harder for thieves to dispose of it.
Park your car somewhere well-lit, overlooked and among as many other vehicles as possible. Try to park so the convertor can't be easily reached, close to a wall, a fence or tightly between other cars for example
