Pickup Trucks A Top Target For Thieves
Did You Know Pickup Trucks Are A Top Target For Thieves?
The Highway Data Loss Institute (HDLI) released research data conducted regarding insurance theft claims from 2010 to 2012. If you drive a pickup truck, you’re going to want to pay attention! Pickups were the first five vehicles listed as being the top targets for thieves! This data is for both the truck itself as well as any contents stolen from the bed. The exact numbers are difficult to trace because the HDLI does not distinguish what percentage of these numbers are vehicle thefts versus content theft. However, for whatever reason the Ford F-250 sits on top of the list. This even prompted Ford to release a statement about the list!
“Many pickup claims result from the theft of equipment from the truck bed and that may be the case with some of the F-250 claims. HLDI’s data doesn’t distinguish theft of vehicle contents or components from theft of a whole vehicle,” said Ron Hall, Ford Truck & Commercial Vehicle spokesman.
No matter what, there is something disturbing about not being able to park your truck somewhere without having peace of mind. Of course there are some solutions available, such as covering your truck’s bed using a tonneau cover. However, with so many options flooding the market, how do you know you’re getting the right one?
One of the first questions you should ask yourself is if the tonneau cover was built using the highest quality materials available. This is a no brainer. You don’t want cheap materials or a poor design being the only barrier between thieves and your valuable cargo. Some of the other important questions you should be asking are:
- Was it built with precision so you know it will fit perfectly with your exact truck?
- Does it have a reputation for being so secure that thieves will just move on to the next truck?
- Does it just say “easy to install” or do they provide a video showing you how easy the installation is?
- Was it made in America?
There are a lot of covers available that can answer “yes” to one or two of these questions, but to date there is only one that can check them all off the list: Roll-N-Lock Tonneau Covers.
Roll-N-Lock Tonneau covers are built in the USA and they always will be. A company that takes pride in their community is always one that will reflect quality from the top down. The quality of each Roll-N-Lock Tonneau Cover is easy to see but what’s even more impressive is the cutting edge design and technology used in the construction process to ensure a precise fit for your truck.
As far as security goes, chances are you keep your truck armed with a security system so why not keep your truck bed contents equally secure under a Tonneau Cover from Roll-N-Lock? Roll-N-Lock offers the only truck bed cover with a patented four-point locking system, which provides instant security by simultaneously securing the tailgate and bed cover. The same way you benefit from locking the door of your home, you will also benefit by locking the contents of your truck bed. The Roll-N-Lock locking mechanism is designed to stop thieves who might want to access valuables in the back of your truck. As soon as you close the Roll-N-Lock Tonneau Cover your cargo will be hidden from potential thieves. They won’t try to steal what they can’t see, and once they realize you have a Roll-N-Lock Tonneau Cover they will quickly move on to another target. Park with peace of mind anywhere knowing your truck bed contents are safe in your Roll-N-Lock vault.
Oh, and about that whole easy to install thing. Well, here is the installation video showing how easy it actually is to install a Roll-N-Lock Tonneau Cover:
