Rockford Auto Experts Explain How You Can Protect Your Car From Hail Damage, Greenfield, Minnesota

Protecting your car from hail damage is easier said than done, particularly if you don’t have any permanent cover or garage. In fact, many people who don’t have such structures are often unaware of ways to prevent unnecessary dents and damage. Thankfully, the auto experts at Autoworks Collision Center in Rockford, MN, are here to help. With their extensive experience and knowledge, they share a few tips to help you protect your car from hail.

Rockford Auto Experts Share 3 Ways to Protect Your Vehicle From the Hail

1. Sign Up for Alerts

Hailstorms can begin quickly and with little warning. That’s why weather centers have developed smartphone apps that allow you to receive weather alerts at the first sign of a potential storm. Take advantage of this and sign up, as they will help you know when it’s time to take action.

2. Find Shelter

auto expertsWhen you’ve received an alert and know a storm is starting, it’s important to find shelter right away. For example, you can bring your car to any mall or shopping center with a parking garage. If you’re driving when the storm begins, pull over under a gas station canopy for protection. In a pinch, use tall buildings as shields by parking on the opposite side of the wind’s direction.

3. Use Blankets

If you’re unable to find shelter before the storm arrives, you can still take action. Cover your vehicle with thick blankets and duct tape them down. This will prevent the wind from blowing the blankets away and soften the hail strikes, so your car is less likely to be damaged.
