What Can Portable Garages Protect Your Car From?

Portable garages are garages that you can use in any location in order to secure your car and protect it from the elements and more. These have many advantages over 'regular' garages in that they allow you to erect them anywhere and including properties that you don't necessarily own. Thus using portable garages you can raise a tent when you're renting your property and don't own it, or when you are thinking of moving soon and thus be able to take it with you when you leave. Furthermore, by using portable garages you are not committing yourself to have a garage in that space and you can take it down when you need it protect my car from hail.



But does a portable garage protect your car in the same way? How can a car canopy offer you the same level of protection as a regular garage? The answer, of course, is that it doesn't quite - but that the amount it does offer is still sufficient to make a big difference. One way it does this is simply to hide your car from sight - and this is a very big part of the security that a regular garage provides. Most thefts are acting out of opportunity, in that they see the vehicle left on the drive and then decide that then is a good time to strike. In other words, they are passing by and notice the vehicle rather than it being a premeditated act. Thus if you can simply disguise the car and keep it hidden then you can protect it quite effectively.



Likewise, you can use your portable garages to shelter your car from bad weather conditions. This way you can protect it for instance from hail which otherwise would cause dents in the roof of your car that would need to be pressed out. Similarly, you will find that even portable garages will be sufficient to add warmth to your car such that they aren't difficult to start in the morning and to prevent the battery from being drained by the cold. This then means you have a lot fewer unpleasant mornings in the freezing cold trying to get your engine to start while you gradually become later and later for work - we've all been there. Look for an all-weather shelter and you can be safe in the knowledge that it will keep your car warm and dry.



Furthermore, if you use portable shelters this will make life easier for you. For instance, when you have to get out of the car in the pouring rain you will no longer get soaking wet, and neither will any important documents you might be carrying nor your phone. Similarly, you will be able to avoid getting your clothes sodden and having to ring them out when you get in.



Other than that you can also use car shelters to store other things as you might a regular garage. For instance, you can keep work tools here, and if you have any hobbies such as carpentry then that too is something you can do in car shelters.

Every year, dangerous storms, floods, and tornadoes, damage property and nature. A large number of vehicles also face damage due to the storms in the sense they become unsafe for use. While some become unsafe to use, others are left out because the repair cost is above the skies.



Here are some ways you can protect your car from being damaged by floods and storms:



1. Plan Smart



If you're planning a trip away from home, whether by road or not, make sure you put a protective cover on your car. Always check the weather forecast for when you're planning a trip. If you're going on a road trip, postpone your trip to make sure you're not in trouble when you hit the road. While if you plan to fly, make sure you've arranged a safe indoor parking space for your car.



2. Act Smart



If you're caught in a storm while in your car, seek shelter under a bridge or a safe area such as a garage or a covered area. If you park on a private property, make sure you take permission from the owners; respect the owner's right. You can also temporarily stop at big malls until the storm fades away.



3. Car Insurance



Floods and storms are common every year, and hail storms are one of the worst. To make sure you don't end up emptying your pocket each year, it is wise to get your vehicle insured. This not only protects your pocket but your vehicle too.



Other Safety Measures to Survive a Hail Storm



1. If you are stuck in a storm, find the nearest covered space for shelter.



2. Do not try to drive past the storm by speeding up the car. This can be very hazardous and can lead to a car crash and fatal injuries.



3. If the visibility is low, go off the road and park in a safe place. Driving in low visibility can lead to serious accidents since you can't see if there is anything in front of you.



4. Make sure not to park under a tree. The tree branches are likely to break during heavy storms which can damage your car. Surviving the terrible stormy weather is a challenge, but not impossible. Even if your does get damaged, many auto repair shops offer quick dent repair service. The modern technology of paintless dent repair fixes your car in no time. For most dents, it only takes a maximum of 30 minutes.
