Protect your car from Hail Damage
Each year hailstorms can cause up to 1 billion dollars in damage to property, crops and vehicles. And since hail can cause thousands of dollars of damage to your vehicle, Star Collision thought it would be beneficial to compile a list of ways to prevent hailstorm damage in case you run into hail in the future, or live in an area with no carport.
- Get a hail protective covering for your car- Yes they make these! If you live in a home or apartment without a carport, investing in a hail protective cover can help save you thousands of dollars in future damages.
- Make your own protective covering– In case you absolutely cannot invest in an official hail protective covering, try to have some heavy blankets on hand in case of a hail advisory warning. Using these thick blankets will offer some protection to your car in case of a hailstorm, if there are no other options for covering available. If no blankets are available, remove your car mats and trunk mats and place them on top of your windshield or any other part of your vehicle, doing any of these things will greatly reduce damage to your car.
- Pull over if driving- If you are driving when a hailstorm starts, do your best to pull over into an area with a safe covering till you can make it home safely. Some examples would be a bank, gas station, or drive-in restaurant.
