Having garage storage is luxury for some, and an absolute necessity for others. Storing a car in a garage has numerous benefits, not least prolonging its longevity and protecting it from the elements. Here are some more reasons to look at investing in garage storage:
Avoid bird droppings
Bird droppings are acidic and will damage paintwork if left unattended to over a number of days. Storing your car in a garage means that it’ll be indoors for half of its life, so your dearest avian friends won’t be able to come and… relieve themselves on your pride and joy as often.
Halve the risk of break-ins or theft
If your car is kept in a garage overnight, there’s much less risk of a cheeky little so-and-so, who has a penchant for pinching things such as whole cars or the contents of said cars, giving it wholly unwanted attention.
Slow down the rusting process
In a hot country such as the one we live in, rusting isn’t as much of an issue as it is in colder places where roads are salted during autumn and winter to dissipate ice build-up on the roads. With that being said, if you live close to or along one of Malta’s many seafronts and just park your car on the street, you’re leaving it exposed to sea salt. A garage will help you avoid this problem. Garage storage also means that your car stays cooler for longer. Lots of heat means increased oxidation and in turn, rust.
Cheaper Insurance Premiums
Your insurer will rejoice if you have a garage in which to store your car, and this is because it is at less risk of being damaged or stolen than it would be if it was parked continuously on the street. Less risk means a cheaper premium, which means more money in your pocket, so you can buy more stuff you don’t need.
Keep Paintwork Sparkling
The Mediterranean sun shines incredibly strongly here in Malta, especially during the summer months. While you may enjoy basking in it yourself, making your skin all nice and brown, your car doesn’t as much. Using your garage storage for your car for as long as possible means its bodywork will look newer for longer.
