Car crime is on the rise. Or so claim M&S Car Insurance, who reckon Brits are apt to sloppiness on the car security front.

Forty percent of drivers interrogated by M&S confessed to leaving vehicle security systems de-activated whilst parked on a serial basis. A similar percentage admitted having left their cars utterly unlocked at some point.

If they don’t want to invalidate their claims, warns Not Just Andrew Ferguson, car people need to pull their socks up. “During the summer months,” he warned gravely, “many drivers unwind windows and leave roofs open.”

The eight per cent of drivers who told the survey they’d had stuff nicked out of the cars would doubtless corroborate Fergie’s earnest imprecation that “It’s important to make sure the vehicle is secure when unattended.”

What our clients say about us

Jo was friendly while still professional. She answered any questions and was patient and happy to help. Next steps and cover confirmation could have been a bit clearer. I've had calls from credit hire that I was expecting for replacement bike but they were pushing to do repairs. I was told this would be done by an approved repair. I called just after 9am to notify a claim and was told I would receive a call back within 10 to 15mins. I had to call back an hour later as no one had called back. The lady who answered, Jo, did deal with things straight away and was very helpful
