    Top of the day to all you Parking lot drivers out there transporting. Just wanted to pass on some vital information on to you guys!! I have a partner who drives for a transport company and he called and told me the thieves got him last night in Indiana. They waited for him to go to bed and stole the key fobs out of 5 vehicles on his trailer up top. This shows you that what a thief will do while you are taking your rest break. All vehicles are in transport mode and doors will automatically lock however didn’t want to take a chance. However his situation and what he did by leaving the key fobs in the glove box was his decision he made the mistake and owned up to it. That’s Neither here or there ; but the reason for this post is just to let you guys know that thieves are stealing key fobs perhaps to steal the cars but possibly the real reason is because of the chips in the fobs . Just be mindful guys have a great day and be safe

    this is why you remove the keys and lock the doors if you don't go straight to the delivery

    That's not a horrible area, either. Not like the burbs, but not like delivering around the corner from the Robert Taylor projects, either.

    What strikes me is what they were stealing. Cars and computers is an unusual combo.

    Anyone had cats cut off while on the trailer?

    Those seem to be a popular target around here

    Never had them cutoff the trailer. I worked at a Chevy dealership as a tech years ago. Went out in the morning to get an auction car to inspect it. Started it up and instantly knew what happened. They got about 10 of them. Must have run out of battery on the portable sawzall.
