Are You Putting Out Welcome Signs for Burglars?

Burglar WelcomeIt’s that time of year–the time where people are going to be getting lots of shiny new stuff in lots of big boxes. It’s also the time of year when a lot of people are going to start advertising all of the cool, brand new valuables they’re putting into their homes.

That’s because at some point you’re going to take the boxes out to the curb for the garbage man to take away. And when you put out that big box for your new HDTV you’re letting burglars know that you in fact have a new HDTV that they might like to steal.

Here are a few ways that you can deal with this problem so that burglars don’t come and declare open season on your house.

Bag Up Your Boxes

Get your boxes concealed in a garbage bag, even if you have to cut them up first. Burglars won’t be tempted by the sight of normal garbage.

Time Your Dropoff

Don’t bring the boxes out until just before the garbage truck arrives. This reduces the window of time for curious thieves to get a gander at what you’re doing.

Bring it Yourself

Take the boxes to the dump or recycling facility on your own. You may have to pay a bit extra to get rid of your boxes, but it will be worth it to get that extra piece of mind.

Get Your Alarm System

This is a wonderful time of year to step up your security. If you haven’t had time to schedule your free security consultation then take a moment to do so today. That way, you can protect your gifts–and the family members who will be enjoying them.
