Tips on How to Avoid Scratches and Dents
A car is always in danger of getting dents and scratches. No matter how little, this ruins your car’s suave, clean look.
While it can be impossible to completely prevent scratches and dents, you can still protect your car’s brand-new custom paint job.
Here are steps you can do to avoid scratches and dents on your car.
Be smart about parking lots
Most dents and scratches occur in a parking lot. Some people are not careful with the doors of their cars, or not careful so as not to rub themselves on your car.
For this, it’s best to park on an empty part of the lot. Or park at the end of the row or in the corner, this alone reduces the risk by half. You should also avoid parking next to cars that have baby seats. This is because parents tend to swing the car door to get their children out of the seat.
Moreover, avoid double parking. People whose car you blocked may get angry and intentionally damage your car.
Practice parallel parking
Many people don’t like parallel street parking because they don’t like manoeuvring the car between other vehicles.
However, parallel parking reduces the risks of scratches because no one will be trying to park next to you.
Keep Your car in your garage
Always park your car in your garage. This is safer because it’s less exposed to elements and people.
Many people fail to do this because they think doing it will take time, but it is a good idea to do so. A little inconvenience is worth it when it comes to protecting your car.
Avoid exposure to severe weather
There are many cases of unfortunate vehicles that have pock-marked bodies because of sitting in a hailstorm. But there are many other weather culprits that can cause damage apart from hail.
High winds can easily cause scratches and dents because they kick up dust, small stones and twigs, and clouds. If there is turbulent weather, it is always a good idea to leave your car in the garage or go out another time.
Keep Foreign objects off the car
Scratches can come from simple actions such as putting objects on the hood or sitting in the car.
The only things that can touch your car should be a soft cloth or water.
These tips can reduce the risk of scratches and dents. But in case these happen, you need a repair shop that will take care of these and not cause further damage.
