Its getting bad everywhere. Sorry th hear about that. I spent yesterday evening, all day today and will spend a little time tomorrow making my shop more secure.

I leave gear in the trunk sometimes but I never put it in there in a parking lot where I'll be parking. I'll pull over several miles away to do that.
Buth then again, that might get me followed.

Since your car was broken into, the contents as well as the damage both fall under the Comprehensive coverage of your automobile policy.

Seems like someone knows you have the gear and following you. I've carried all sorts of gear and left it in various vehicles and never had a problem in several states, in the northeast and in the south. I have it insured in case it's ever stolen. My truck even has a photography company name on the front plate.

What kind of area are you parking in... No offense intended. Were other things stolen?

Sorry OP, I'm getting this policy now for my gear, well worth it imo!

I've learned the hard way living in San Francisco...I had my car broken into 3 times last year. Luckily it hasn't been broken into recently though as I leave my glovebox/center console open and my back seat down and nothing at all in my car. Basicly make it look like it has already been broken into and you won't have to worry about it!

wow these quotes for insurance in the US are fantastic! In my neighborhood, it is much more expensive (like more than 10 times) and they add so much in the small print, that it effectively reduces the coverage they offer to almost nothing.
i just declared them on my house insurance and try to be super attentive at all times.

Sorry to hear about your loss Tiggity (twice). I'm not being a smart aleck and I know that some people live in suburban and urban areas because they have to or because they want to, but I'd be looking to move away if that happened to me twice in a short period of time. It's not that nobody does anything wrong in the area that I live, but I keep camera bags (and guns and all sorts of other stuff in my car), often visible and I've never had a case of theft. (I'm furiously knocking on wood now because I've probably just jinxed myself).

"There was NO way so see it."

Unless they were just walking along breaking windows they must have seen something. Sorry for your loss. It really sucks that we can no longer leave anything where people can see it. So sad.

Check with your home owners insurance. If your auto insurance doesn't cover it your home owners probably will.

Thats my thought as well... Unless you had something else of value in the car stolen or it wasnt hidden as well as you said it sounds very much like someone might be following you and watching

Which State Farm policy? Stolen cameras might be covered under any one of these!

  • State Farm auto policy Comprehensive coverage (you might or might not have that in your policy)
  • State Farm homeowners or renters coverage
  • State Farm personal articles floater (aka 'inland marine') policy
  • State Farm business policy
