Theft of Vehicle

Your vehicle plays an important role in your life and your family’s life. Having your car stolen could mean missing work or important appointments, and puts you in a seriously inconvenient and upsetting predicament.

In Sudbury, vehicle theft often involves ‘amateur’ thieves who take advantage of an opportunity by grabbing the first vehicle they can find that’s been left unsecured.

The good news is that there are measures you can take to help prevent vehicle theft:
