Mercury Insurance Reports 40% Spike in California Comprehensive Car Claims


...help keep owners from falling victim to a potential prowler:


  • Never leave keys in the ignition or the car running while unattended, not even when parked in front of your house or on your property.
  • Whenever possible park in well-lit, high traffic areas.
  • Roll up all windows, lock your vehicle and set your car alarm every time you park.
  • Never leave purses, wallets, cell phones, keys or packages in plain view. It doesn't matter if the windows are rolled up and the alarm is on, a smash and grab can occur within seconds.
  • Never leave personal identification, such as a driver's license or your vehicle title, in your car.
  • Purchase comprehensive insurance coverage to protect your vehicle in the event it is damaged due to something other than a car collision---such as theft, vandalism, fire and floods.


Victims of auto theft or vandalism should contact their local police department immediately to file a report. Contact your insurance company and file a claim within 24 hours of your vehicle being vandalized or stolen.
