Act to pro­tect your as­sets

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - What’s On -

Dr Ken Ger­man, com­mu­ni­ca­tions di­rec­tor at the In­ter­na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Auto Theft In­ves­ti­ga­tors and a for­mer Bri­tish Po­lice Rally Cham­pion, said: “I’ve heard the­o­ries that mod­ern clas­sics might be stolen for banger rac­ing or parts, but I sus­pect it’s all about the re­sale value.

“En­thu­si­asts and col­lec­tors will pay thou­sands, some­times tens of thou­sands of pounds, for a nice ex­am­ple.

“Clas­sic ve­hi­cle own­ers need to re­act: first by dis­miss­ing the idea that ‘it won’t hap­pen to me’, and se­cond by tak­ing prac­ti­cal steps to pro­tect their as­set.

“Alarms, en­gine im­mo­bilis­ers, track­ing devices and the new DNA in­vis­i­ble mark­ings can all be wise in­vest­ments.”

Cars like Mr Al­izadeh’s Mini have a high re­sale value
