Our car got broken into in a Wellington carpark yesterday. :(
They broke a back window, took the bags off the back seat and tossed the contents around in the stairwell.
Stole, one pair of jeans, a pair of old merrell shoes, and hubbies shaver. The home grown lamb chops for his (and friends) dinna that was in the chiller bag was tossed aside like it was rubbish! Shite I was in the shops yesterday and that was almost $20 of meat!
The Police of course can do nothing. Luckily we have glass cover on our insurance.
So a note of caution, when using carparking buildings, always park in a spot that your car can be seen from all angles, next to a pillar gives the buggas opprotunity.

Sorry to hear this happened to you.

I get grumpy with the fact that carpark buildings charge you to park there but their security is so crap...what happened to them having security guys walking around and having a presence to deter break-ins?

Plenty of carpark buildings I won't park in now because I myself don't feel safe getting in and out of my car there, let alone leaving my vehicle there! :(:(

Having said that, my car was broken into at the last place we lived, at nighttime, right outside our bedroom window and none of us (including dog) heard a thing. Stole sports shoes, a raincoat and a pair of binoculars. Didn't realise anything was amiss until I tried to put the key into the passenger door lock and realised it was damaged...

Take a break...while I take care of your home, your block, your pets, your stock! [;)] PM me...

Not a nice feeling Xartep. Many carparks advertise that they have security cameras - did this one?

Sorry to hear about this but we are constantly being warned not to leave anything in clear view for just this reason. We shouldn't have too!!! but life is full of mongrels.

I automatically put everything in the boot these days as our local town has a problem with the same issue and the Police warn us through the Local paper. Good that thye are not hiding the issue.

Our car has been broken into once and there was NOTHING in it that could be taken. It was clean, tidy, nothing to be seen and still broken into.

Its a ute, and the canopy has windows also, so there is nowhere to "hide" the overnight bag.
Other than that and the esky for the meat the car is always empty.
I think I will invest in one of those lockable safes for tools to put in the back and screw down.
We use this carpark cause it is both handy to both offices that he works from, and you can pay by eftpos. The other carpark only takes cash, and is often full when he gets to Wn in the AM.
I went to get him a new shaver - woohoo talk about $$$$$$!!!!![:0]

Welcome to the club, Xartep.

When I lived in Wellington, I used to leave the car unlocked as it would get broken into on a weekly basis.
Stopped smoking in it too as they used to empty the ashtray on the floor... YUK
