    Protecting Your Beloved Car From Any Lasting Damage

    Protecting Your Beloved Car From Any Lasting Damage

    If you are in love with your car then you are going to want to protect it at all costs.

    This includes protection from people, animals, and the weather. This might surprise you but all of these can have an effect on your car in some way shape or form.

    Here is a helpful list of ways you can protect your car from everything around.

    Lock It

    This may sound silly and you might think it is second nature but not everyone locks their car, this includes both in public places and in a garage. No matter where your car is, you must remember to lock it. If your car is stolen or damaged in any way and you didn’t lock it then your insurance won’t pay out as it will be deemed as your fault. When you are parking your car in public you should take the time to ensure you have locked it and maybe even cover it to give it an added layer of protection.

    Storing It

    This may seem obvious but storing your car can add to its protection and longevity. If you park your car on the street in between uses then it can come into contact with all sorts of nasties. This could be sap from the trees sticking to your car or people walking past it catching it with their bags. You never know what will touch your car when you are away from it so you might want to park it where it has a bit more protection. This could be a multistorage car park when you are out and about or in a garage when you’re at home.

    If you know you won’t be using your car for a while, for example if it is declared off the road or you are going on holiday then look at ways to keep your car safe. You could rent out a storage unit for your car. If you are unsure of the space needed then take a look online for some advice and guidance on storage space needed to store a car.

    Park It Sensibly

    Have you ever wondered why the white lines are there in car parks or parking bays? It may shock you to realize that they are actually there to protect your car from damage when parked. The way they are set out and painted means that when you are parked perfectly in the middle of them the other car doors won’t hit yours. The last thing you want is to come back to your precious car and be met with scratches from a car parked next to you. If you are over the white lines of the bay then this will be classed as your fault for not parking correctly.

    Protective Layer

    Finally, it is worth mentioning that there are preventative measures you can take to protect your car from damage. Thanks to newfound technology there are invisible layers of paint that will work to protect the paint job. The problem you have if the paint job gets damaged is that air and other elements can get into the car and cause even more problems, leading to expensive issues such as rust setting in.
