According to research conducted by a well-known insurance company, less than a third (29%) of us have a plan in place to prepare for damage caused by the weather. But how to do it? Here are some steps that should be considered if you want to minimize the chance of your car suffering damage from hail, storm or flood this year.
Protect your car
If a severe thunderstorm is coming and you are worried about your car, consider a visit to your local mall. It will most likely have a covered car park where you can leave your vehicle, although you may want to check the center opening hours first, as some shopping center car parks will only let you in while the shops inside are open. You could even go see a movie, as many cinemas have covered parking spaces, whether they are in shopping malls or not. This can help protect your car from damage caused by hailstones and storm debris. If you’re caught with just a few minutes’ notice and no cover, one option might be to throw some relatively heavy blankets over your car and tie them up. This could help protect your car from a number of things a storm could throw at it, most notably hailstones and small branches. A professional anti-hail cover to always keep in the car, however, is certainly a better solution.
Online car gear store offers many options for car gear and parts, from basic replacement parts to custom or performance upgrades. A professional anti-hail cover has a number of advantages over more improvised solutions. It is designed to form a tight seal around the vehicle, reducing the risk of damage from hail and other debris.
