Spring is the season of new beginnings, but it also brings with it some unpredictable and sometimes dangerous weather. Heavy rain, high winds, hail, and even tornadoes can cause damage to your car’s body. If you’re in Iowa, you know how quickly the weather can turn, and how important it is to be prepared. At Graham Collision, we want to help you keep your car in top shape, even in severe spring weather. Here are some tips to protect your vehicle from the elements and what to do if you need auto body repairs.
If possible, park your car in a garage or covered area during severe spring weather. This will protect it from hail, falling branches, and other debris that could cause damage.
If you don’t have access to a covered area, consider using a car cover to protect your car’s body. A car cover is the next best option to shield your car from hail, wind-blown debris, and other hazards.
If possible, avoid driving during severe spring weather. High winds, flooding, and hail can all damage your car’s body and make driving dangerous.
If you do have to drive during severe weather, drive slowly and carefully. Better to be safe than sorry! Be alert for hazards like fallen branches or debris in the road, and avoid driving through standing water.
Even with the best precautions, your vehicle may still be damaged during severe spring weather. If that happens, don’t panic. Graham Collision is here to help. Here’s what to do:
