Here’s at PDR2U we’re Brisbane’s experts in paintless dent removal. We remove all kinds of dings and dents quickly and expertly.
We’ve seen every kind of dent you can imagine, and many times they were avoidable. Whilst we love our work and pride ourselves on excellent finishes, we know you’d probably rather avoid having to call a service like ours in the first place!
So we’ve put together our top tips to protect your car from dents so you can keep your vehicle looking as good as new for as long as possible.
Parallel parking is a much-feared manoeuvre but if you can master it you will help protect your car.
All it takes is a gust of wind or someone distracted by the kids for a door to swing into yours leaving an unsightly dent. If you parallel park, you won’t have cars parking beside you.
Of course, the back and front of your car will be exposed to other drivers misjudging parking distance but your bumpers will do their job and at slow speeds, you probably won’t even see a scratch.
Choose Corner Parking Spaces
Another of our top tips for protecting your car from dents is to park it in a corner. Here you automatically give your car more space between other cars.
It doesn’t take a genius to work out the area around corner spaces are too small and awkward to fit in other cars so you can open your doors wide without touching anything. And that means the doors of the nearest cars won’t accidentally bump into yours either.
It might sound obvious, but when you’re in a rush or distracted, ‘obvious’ doesn’t always occur to you. Corner spaces aren’t always the closest to the shop or car park entrance which often mean they’re available. Take advantage of this parking spot whenever you can!
Avoid Peak Times
Think about the last time you went to the supermarket at the same time as everyone else. Selfish parking, wide doors, harassed parents, drivers not checking their mirrors before pulling out, shopping trolleys blowing in the wind…
When you add everyone’s big grocery shop into the equation it’s not hard to see how easily your car can get dinged.
A really simple way of protecting your car is to head out when peak times are over. That way, you’ll be able to park away from other cars, avoid the trolley’s and have a much more pleasant shopping experience.
Park Further Away
Want another of our Top Tips For Protecting Your Car From Dents? Then park away from your destination. When you’re in a rush it’s tempting to park as close as possible to your destination. The problem is, everyone else is thinking the same thing. It may be convenient to park a few steps away but at what cost to your car’s bodywork?
If you park at the unpopular end of the car park or even a street away from a store, you’ll probably be at your appointment before the space hunters have even turned their engines off.
Parking further away may save you time but it will almost certainly save you money on preventable dent repairs too.
If It’s Already Too Late…
