You may be very proud of the nice and shiny paint job on your car. However, it is extremely easy for things to go wrong along the way, which can cause small dings and scratches to appear in your paint with you not even knowing how they got there or what happened. This article will be a real eye opener with regards to ways your car can be put at risk of damage that you may not have even given though to before.
Parking lots are dangerous places – When you park your car in a parking lot, you are putting it in a dangerous situation. Even more dangerous, is parking it in a crowded area of the lot. So, the next time you need to park in a lot, try to park further out and away from the majority of the cars. Otherwise, you run the risk of carts dinging the car, angry people keying your car, kids scratching your car with toys or even people accidentally backing into your car.
Hail is your car's enemy – If you start to hear or see hail, then you should make sure you have your car parked in a place where it is fully protected from that hail. While very small hail may not do any noticeable damage to your car, if it gets larger then it can cause a lot of damage. In some cases, hail can get to be larger than the size of golf balls and it comes down hard. It can ding your car all over and in some cases, it can even break your windshield. If you start to hear hail, then the best thing you can do is to make sure you pull your car under good coverage or inside a carport or garage.
Trees and bushes can harm your car more than you may imagine – You may think of your car as this strong protector you drive your family around in, and in many respects, it is. However, it also has many weaknesses. When you park too close to a bush, it won't take much from the touch of a sharp stick to cause a scratch on your car. When you park under a tree, you want to make sure it doesn't produce nuts, pine cones or anything else that can ding or scratch your car when they fall from above onto the top of your car.
