Not only can car park dings diminish the value of your car, it can also put an alarming dent in your wallet. Click through this presentation for some quick and easy tips on how to avoid car park damages.
Low impact damage makes up one in seven insurance claims and no doubt much more
goes unreported, so here are some simple tips for minimizing damage in a car park.
Choose carefully where you park, as parking next to a large vehicle or a two-door coupe
may be asking for trouble from door openings. Watch out for parking spaces with poles
or bollards in front. Take note of aligning your car with the vehicle beside to avoid parking
too far forward. If it is a tight spot, then consider pulling in the mirrors, which most cars
now allow for. Be sure to park as central as possible and if an adjacent car is already
near the line, then perhaps choose another spot. If parking forward into a wall, turn your
headlights on to gauge the distance as you slowly approach and don't be afraid to get
out and double check. For those who love their car, park way down the end on your own
for peace of mind and enjoy some extra exercise.
