Because vintage cars are not used for everyday driving, you have to know the proper measures you have to take when storing your vehicles. Not using your car all the time does not mean you are lowering its risk of getting damages. Here are some tips you can follow to protect your car when not in use.
Fully Secured Car Storage
When not using your car, you have to store it in a safe place where it can be free from theft and other external factors that may result in damages on your vehicle. This means storing your car in a locked garage. Simply parking your vehicle in a carport and covering it is not enough. A secure storage space is often one of the requirements that may be asked by a Classic Custom Car Insurance agency.
Don't Forget Your Tires
If you won't be using your car for a short time, make sure the tires have correct pressure in them. However, if you will be storing your car for a long time, it's best to lift the tires up with a jack to ease the weight off the vehicle on your tires.
Preventing rust, corrosion and moisture from forming on your car is important to keep it in good condition even if your car is in storage. To get full protection for your vehicle, you must also give it the proper insurance coverage it needs.
