Scratches and dents are an inescapable part of owning a vehicle. From little rocks hitting your front bumper to incidents while parking, all of them result in some sort of damage to the exterior of your car and make it look worse and not maintained. If you want to avoid that, continue reading because we will give you four for keeping your vehicle as dent and scratch free as it can be.
1. Don't Trust The Side Mirrors
One of the most used parts of the vehicle is the side mirrors. They are used when merging in traffic, parking, or even just to keep an eye on the surroundings while driving. But one thing that is commonly overlooked is the way you see things. Depending on the angle, some things might appear closer or further than they actually are. This can mislead drivers into doing maneuvers that result in scratches or dents. If you want to avoid this, make sure you always check by looking around, especially in your car's blind spots.
2. Park Carefully And Correctly
Parking is something that all drivers do, but not all know the proper way, or at least the safe way. That's why a lot of scratches and dents happen while parking or driving in reverse. To make sure you will not hit anything, go slow and look around constantly. Don't trust the mirrors that much, and if needed, exit the vehicle for a better idea of the space you have.
3. Ceramic Coat Your Car
Ceramic coating or waxing your vehicle can save it from small scratches that add up over time. This will also help with water spots and even dents sometimes - when dented, the paint won't crack or scratch that easily. An added bonus is that cleaning becomes much easier - everything slides right off with the slightest effort.
4. Park Indoors When Possible
By parking indoors, we don't mean only in your garage. Underground or covered parking lots and parking under some sort of roof also work. The reason is to isolate the car from the elements as much as possible - rain, sun, snow, and dust.
