Once you find that your vehicle has been stolen, there’s a rush of emotion. You’re panicked, angry, and upset. While it’s rational to be upset, it’s best to stay calm and take action. Check out what to do if your car has been stolen.
Alert the Authorities.
Your first order of business should be to alert the police. Call to inform them of the stolen vehicle along with any details that can help them to recover your car. Report the type of car, the year of the model, the VIN, license plate number, and where you last saw the car. The sooner you call to report the missing vehicle; the better chance the authorities have to recover your stolen vehicle. Additionally, it’s a good idea to contact the DMV. They assist the police in finding stolen vehicles with their stolen car database. Contacting them can help you to get your car back to you.
Contact Your Insurance Agency.
A lot can happen to your vehicle when it’s been stolen. Contact your insurance to file a claim for a stolen vehicle. Your auto insurance may be able to assist you in getting a rental car until your car has been recovered. Additionally, depending on your type of policy, your auto insurer may cover the cost of the stolen car and replace it with a new one. Contact your agent to find out how they can best assist you with your stolen vehicle.
