What Are The Biggest Threats to your Dealership Security?

Before partnering with Radius, many of our customers had found security guards or self-monitored camera systems ineffective. Securing auto dealerships poses unique challenges. There are three major crime challenges that drive dealership managers to search for a better crime-prevention solution for their car lot.


1.     Theft from Outdoor Car Lots

Many outdoor car lots have no fenced perimeter protecting the high-value assets left outside year-round. Unfortunately, what makes for a convenient buying experience also creates security risks. Security guards, cannot be everywhere at once, which is why video-analytics security technology is the best solution for protecting dealerships. Our remote-guarding security cameras protect your assets such as catalytic converters--one of the most commonly stolen items from car lots--tires, and rims.

2.     Liability Claims and Customer Car Damage

You have likely dealt with fraudulent liability claims when a customer has left their vehicle with your service department. When our clients noticed these incidents, we created our Investigations Department. We will review camera footage to detect any existing damage to vehicles upon arrival, so that you are not blamed for pre-existing damage to your customer's vehicle.

3.     Vehicle Vandalism on Dealerships

Improve Shopper Experience by Preventing Overnight Crime

With a fully-integrated system, you can view your car lot remotely over the Internet. This tool gives you access to footage to help you to settle customer claims and create a safer environment for shoppers.

Car dealerships are one of the biggest targets for theft and vandalism, costing both time and money to replace parts or repair damage. Going through insurance and paying deductibles adds up quickly. This is why Aly Jiwani, the Vice President of the Open Road Auto Group wanted to find a solution that avoided having to go down that road altogether.

"I have definitely experienced both worlds of just a standard security guard and then Radius Security," says Aly. Before implementing his Radius Redhanded remote guarding system, his dealership experienced crime on an almost weekly basis. Now, he says when he opens new dealerships, Radius Security is one of the first calls he makes.

Aly's favorite part of working with Radius Security is the preventative measures in place. When suspicious behavior is detected, Aly receives a notification on his phone with details about whether or not a police response was required.

"These are things that if Radius Security wasn't watching over my properties, then who knows what could've happened."
