True Benefits of Having a Car Alarm In Philadelphia

If you live in Philadelphia, it’s time to invest in a high-quality car alarm.

This past October, Philadelphia police reported an increase in auto theft, making this year’s auto crime rate 6% higher than last. While many cars were able to be recovered, some were never found or simply found too late. Residents are being highly encouraged to take extra care of their keys and running cars.

Which means, there’s yet another thing to deal with, and yet another headache. 
But with a car alarm, it doesn’t have to be that way. Why?

We’ll give you one word: Security

Not only is having a car alarm a great security measure, but it also gives you the security to sleep at night, knowing your car is safe. It gives you the reassurance when you’re out shopping, that if anything happens to your car, you’ll be alerted instantly. It gives you the relief while you’re busy working that if your car is stolen, you have the best chances of getting it back.

There are real benefits to having a secure car alarm. So, let’s discuss.

Big Money Saver

Though you may have to spend some money initially, installing a car alarm saves you big bucks in the future. For two reasons. 

  • Insurance companies like when you have a car alarm installed. It makes their lives easier, and so they make your lives easier by lowering your insurance costs. Having a car alarm saves you a sizeable amount on your yearly insurance fee. And, who doesn’t love lower insurance costs?
  • Having your car broken into, means you’ve got to get it fixed. Having your car stolen and not recovered, means you’ve got to get a new one. Both of which involve spending a lot of money. Money, you may not have.

Installing a car alarm is a preventative measure that helps prevent you from having to spend all that extra money in the case of auto crime. Because if you can recover your car, then you won’t have to have to spend the extra money to get a new one.

Which leads us to our next point.

Auto Recovery Features

Now a day, you can get car alarms that also double as tracking devices. So, not only will you immediately know if your car is being broken into and/or stolen, but you will also be able to track where your car is being driven.

This new feature is a huge help in recovering cars. 

Because, if you can track your car the moment it’s taken, you can get it back before any real damage is done.

So… How can you get a car alarm? 

Talk to your local Philadelphia car professionals, and ask about the different types of car alarms. Do your research and choose the one that works best for your budget and your lifestyle. Lastly, have it installed by professional car mechanics, and drive on! 

It’s an installation you won’t be looking back on.

Save Money on Your Insurance with this Great Tip - Car Alarms and Their Benefits

Car insurance can be a killer.
Especially in a busy city like Philadelphia. 

Because you’re not just paying to drive in the city- you’re also paying for the high accident rates and high vehicle crime rates that come with the city as well.

And yet, you can’t go without car insurance, because it saves you a ton when you suddenly find yourself in a vehicle pinch.

Can’t live with it. Can’t live without it. 

The best thing you can do? 
Try your hardest to get that cost down with a few tricks up the sleeve. And that includes: car alarms.

Why car alarms?

It's possible to get your insurance cost down when you have certain safety features. Insurance companies are willing to bet more on you, when you give them more to bet on. Meaning, when you give insurance companies reason to believe you and your car are not accident prone or problematic, they’ll be more likely to take you on for less.

That’s why, when you install a car alarm, you can potentially lower your insurance cost. A car alarm is one of those features that suggests less problems for insurance companies. 

How do car alarms work?

Car alarms are a great car safety measure- especially in a city with high vehicle crime. Car alarms let you know instantly if someone is trying to break into or steal your car. Nowadays, car alarms don’t just beep loudly. They also send automatic alerts to your smartphone, so you can truly be alerted when something bad is happening to your car.

Some car alarms will also track your car’s movement. So, in case of theft, the police can use your car alarm’s tracker to find where the thief has taken your car. 

Where to get a car alarm?

Talk to your local car mechanic or vehicle specialist. There are all different types of car alarms, so talking it out with a professional can help you discover which is the best car alarm option for you. Once you’ve chosen the car alarm that best suits your needs (and budget!), have it professionally installed. 

Car alarms can be tricky to install if you don’t know what you’re doing, or if you’re trying it for the first time. This is because car alarms need to be connected and wired to your car properly. Which means, if you do it wrong, you could end up damaging your car. Or worse- not knowing when a thief is trying to make off with your car.

What are some other benefits of car alarms?

Fast recovery time – Normally, it can be extremely difficult to track down a stolen car. But, when you’ve got a car alarm with a GPS that can track where your car is going- recovering the car is a piece of cake.

Less stress, less worry – Having a car alarm, and knowing your car is properly protected, gives you a sense of relief like no other. 

Make your life easy, and consider a car alarm, today!

Beat the Summer Heat by Getting Your Windows Tinted this Spring

It might still be chilly out, but not for long. 
Because when that spring heat hits, it’s going to be HOT.

And when that happens, you’ll want to be prepared.
Beat the summer heat this spring, by getting your windows tinted. Trust us, you’ll be a happier, cooler driver for it.

What is window tinting?

When you get your car windows tinted, you are essentially getting a colored (but transparent) layer of film adhered to the inside of the windows. Basically, you’re just making your windows a little darker. This way, you can get some extra shade from the sun and some more privacy from onlookers.

How can tinted windows keep you cool?

Two ways.

One, tinted windows are shaded so they automatically keep the sun’s heat off of you while you’re driving. But they start keeping things cool even before you begin driving. Because – and this is #2 – tinted windows can block up to 65% of the sun’s heat that normally gets captured inside your car. So, when you get inside your car, you’re not burning your hands on the hot steering wheel or struggling to breath from the heat.

Tinted windows offer temperature stability, so that you can drive comfortably and safely.

What are some more benefits of window tinting?

UV protection – Although you’re in an enclosed vehicle, the sun’s harmful UV rays can still seep into your car while you’re driving. That’s where tinted windows come into the picture. Tinted windows can protect you from harmful UV rays while you’re driving. In fact, they can protect you from up to 99% of UV rays.

Better care for your car- Aside from harming your skin, the sun’s rays can also harm the interior of your car in the form of fading. Window tinting protects your leather seats from fading, keeping your car looking fresher for longer.

How to choose a window tint?

The most important thing to know when choosing a window tint, is that there are different tint percentages that you can get for your vehicle. Depending on what you like, you can get a darker or lighter tint for your windows. You can even mix it up a bit and get some windows darker and others lighter. 

Window tints are customizable, so it’s all up to you!

    Note:  Every state has its own window tinting regulations. Meaning, that depending on where you live and where your vehicle is registered, you may only be legally allowed to tint your windows up to a certain percentage. Be sure to find out what is and isn’t allowed in your state before purchasing and installing your window tints!

How can you get your windows tinted?

Easy! Just talk to your local car specialists. Here at Car Pretty Window Tinting, we offer top car window tinting materials and installation techniques. And, we use only the best for our customers. 

We’ll help you decide on the tint that’s just right for you.
