Tips to Avoid Damage to your Vehicle

Avoid Denting your CarIt is a fact of life that on occasions decisions we make lead to our vehicles becoming damaged. From choosing to park your car on the road rather than in a driveway to parking next to a car owner that clearly takes no pride in their vehicle. We thought we would offer the following tips that will help you consider risks to your motor.

1. Parking in your Garage

Ironically car owners assume that parking their vehicle in their garage is the safest place to park a car. However, garages are often full of clutter, haphazardly placed posing greater risk than if your car were parked across the street. Keeping your garage neat and tidy, removing objects that could fall and hit your car will ensure your vehicle remains blemish free.

2. Parking in a Car Park

When parking your car consider how much room you will have when you attempt to exit the vehicle. However careful you are not to bash the door of the car next to yours does not mean that passengers or drivers will offer your car the same courtesy. It’s often worth considering the type of car you are parking next to, if it’s a beaten up old banger perhaps look to park next to a newer model, clean and shiny, offering the hope that the owner takes pride in caring for their car.

3. Parking in Less Desirable Areas

When leaving your car overnight consider the area in which you are parking your car, vandalism often occurs after dark, when perpetrators stand less chance of being spotted.

It’s impossible to protect your car from external factors out of your control, but hopefully considering our tips, will ensure the likelihood of damage to your car when parking is significantly reduced.
