Minor dents and bruises to your vehicle are an unavoidable part of owning a Dubai used car. Since they can be costly to repair and can also decrease the resale value of your car, you should try to avoid them. It may seem like there isn’t much that you can do about it, but CarSwitch.com has compiled a few tips to make it easier for you to protect your car from dents and scratches.
Park in less populated sections of the car park
Nothing beats the frustration that comes from finding a new dent or scratch on your car when you come back to the parking lot. To decrease the chances of this happening, you can consider parking in a emptier section of the parking lot.
Parallel park carefully
Practicing parallel parking is a must if you want to keep your car safe. In order to minimize chances of getting dents and scratches, try to maintain a safe distance between your car and the ones parked around you. If you must park between two cars, try to keep your car in the middle of the parking spot.
Keep your car inside in bad weather
If there is a hailstorm outside, it might cause dent, paint chips and even cracks. Driving in a thunderstorm is also risky. So, avoid driving and parking your car outside in such weather conditions.
Open doors carefully
Even if you’re in a rush to go somewhere, it is important that you open your car doors with care. If you open your car door carelessly, doing so can cause a dent in your car as well as other cars and things around it.
Side mirrors of a car can also be damaged while it’s parked. Other cars can easily damage or even break the wing mirrors. Take a few seconds before leaving your car to fold these mirrors or you can also invest in a Dubai used car which has side mirrors that fold automatically.
Even with all the safety precautions, it’s almost inevitable that your Dubai used car will still undergo some wear and tear. However, a well-kept car can get you a great resale value. Looking to sell your car? CarSwitch.com can help you with that as well!
