Protecting Your Belongings When You Fly Out of SeaTac

tighten-car-securityWhen you leave town, you need to make sure that your home and vehicle are protected. The last thing you’ll want to deal with when you get back is stolen or vandalized property. Be sure that you take steps to protect your home and vehicle while you’re away – you’ll be glad that you did when you return. The following tips can help you to keep your possessions safe the next time you fly out of SeaTac.

Take a Look at Your Property

Before you leave for your trip, take some time to examine your property. Walk around your home to see if you notice anything that might attract thieves. If you notice it – chances are good that others will, too – especially if they are assessing your property as a potential place to rob. If you have luxury vehicles parked in front of your home (such as a boat or off-road recreation vehicle), store them in your garage or at a suitable storage facility. The extra time and effort are worth preventing the theft of a vehicle.

You should also look at the doors and windows at your place of residence. If your windows are not covered properly to conceal the interior of your home, possible intruders might easily view what’s inside. If you are gone for a long period of time, they will certainly notice that if they’re paying attention. Make sure that all of your doors have deadbolts on them, and get locks for your windows.

Eliminate the Spare Key

If you have a spare key stashed somewhere on your property, you may want to consider an alternative strategy. You likely have a limited number of spaces where you might hide such a key, and a burglar will probably not have any trouble finding it in one of these places. Instead of keeping an extra key outside, you could give the key to a trusted neighbor, family member, or friend. At worst, paying a locksmith if you are locked out is far less costly than a potential break-in might be.

Keep Your Yard Secured

In addition to securing your home, you should also remember to secure the exterior of your property. Many people plant tall shrubs and trees to conceal their yards, and others use tall fences to deter intruders. If you don’t have time to plant shrubs or have a protective fence installed before your next trip, you may wish to install a home security system (this is a good idea even if you have a fence or trees surrounding your property).

Protect Your Vehicle

The vehicle you take to the airport also needs to be protected from theft or vandalism. Leaving it at the airport parking lot may be an expensive prospect, but using offsite SeaTac parking is an affordable option. The Aeroparking facility is clean, well-lighted, and offers round-the-clock security – and the prices are always very reasonable.

You should be able to leave town without worrying about your possessions. If you take measures to secure your home and property, the likelihood of a break-in will be minimized. By leaving your car at Aeroparking, you will further protect yourself from becoming the victim of an avoidable crime.
