Why Parking Your Car in A Covered Garage is Better than Leaving it Outdoors

If you love your vehicle, and even if you’re not a car buff – but want to protect your only source of transportation or the investment you’ve made in your car, then you’re probably thinking about the best place to park the car. Like: off the street when it could be hit, in a parking lot, but somewhere that other cars won’t cause damage when opening doors or block you in when you need to leave… so many decisions!  Whatever your situation – this doesn’t have to be a reason that your car is left outdoors subjected to the elements.  

Here are 3 reasons why parking your car in a covered garage is so much better than leaving it outdoors. 

Prevent Theft

The frequency of automobile theft is up. When your car isn’t easily accessible, it can thwart thieves. They won’t risk the extra time trying to break into the covered garage and will just move on. This and locking your doors can both go a long way in stopping crime. 

Protect Cosmetic Value

The outdoors can leave your car vulnerable to UV damage, bird droppings, flying debris, and more. Once paint on your vehicle oxidizes it will rust, peel and chip away. Rust can also lead to holes in the frame which leads to another host of issues. Not to mention the threat of storm debris like large falling branches or hail. 

Stop Premature Wear and Tear 

When your car is parked outdoors and is in extreme hot or cold weather conditions, it can also cause wear and tear to important mechanical components. For example, your brakes can corrode faster, your battery can drain due to the cold temps and your tire could get dry rot if temps are hot enough.

Maybe you have a home but your garage is filled with boxes and other valuables.  A portable garage is the best way to keep your car protected and give you peace of mind.
