You may be diligent in washing your hands on a regular basis. You may even be good at keeping your car looking shiny and new. But how often do you clean your vehicle’s steering wheel?
According to a study conducted in the UK in 2011, a steering wheel is said to be 9 times dirtier than a public toilet seat and 700 different kinds of bacteria inhabit a vehicle’s interior per square inch. Yuck!
The study also showed that the trunk has around 1,000 bacteria types per square inch. The most common form of bacteria was bacillus cereus, which can cause food poisoning.
Maybe you should give the interior of your car a good clean. I certainly will!
1) File a Police Report
The first thing you should do when you discover that your car has been broken into is file a police report. Call a non-emergency phone number if possible. Only dial 911 if no one is answering the local police number. Make sure to have your license, registration, and insurance information available for the officer when making a report. You should report all of the damage done to your vehicle as well as any missing contents.
2) Call Your Insurance Company
If you have full comprehensive coverage, damage to your vehicle will likely be covered under your policy. It is also likely that you will be required to pay a deductible. It only makes sense to make a claim if the cost to repair the damage is more than the deductible.
However, it’s very unlikely that your insurance company will cover any of your contents. You should still mention any stolen items to your adjuster, but don’t count on receiving compensation as these items are typically covered by your home or renters insurance.
3) Secure Your Personal Information
If there is any chance that your personal information has been compromised, take the necessary actions to prevent identify theft and damage to your personal and credit history. For example, cancel stolen credit cards, replace important legal documents and contact your banks and lenders.
4) Report Stolen Items to Your Homeowners or Renters Insurance
The contents of your vehicle are typically insured under most home or renters insurance policies. If the items stolen from your vehicle are worth more than your homeowners or renters insurance deductible, you can file a claim for the value of the stolen items. The amount of your deductible will vary according to your policy and premiums.
