Garage parking benefits


Here at Huddersfield Garage Doors, we are the leading suppliers of garage doors in the Huddersfield area, and have been for the past 30 years, so we feel that we know our stuff when it comes to anything garage related.

One question we have been asked frequently over the past few years has been whether or not to park their car in the garage or not. Now, we can’t tell you what to do, but to help, here are a few benefits of parking your car in your garage.

Increased security

By storing your car in the garage, your car is instantly a whole lot safer and less likely to be damaged or stolen by thieves. Even with auto alarming systems, if your car is parked on the drive it is an open invitation to any thief or vandal walking by.

Having your car broken in to could potentially be the worst thing possible – as a lot of people store their garage door opener in their car. Therefore, if your car is broken in to, they have access to your garage and then potentially the rest of your home if they are connected.

Protection from the elements

If left out on the drive or on the road, your vehicle has more of a chance of being seriously damaged by the weather. High winds and storms could harm the vehicles quality and (in very rare cases) destroy it.

Aside from utter destruction, here are a further ways weather and the elements can take their toll on your car:

  • Heatwaves can make your car unbearably hot along with damaging the engine
  • Rain, snow and ice speed up the rusting process
  • Tree sap and acidic bird droppings can harm the paintwork

The team here at Huddersfield Garage Doors are an experienced, knowledgeable group, and are here at your service. Feel free to give us a call anytime on 01484 829 612.
