As hurricane season approaches, it’s important to take the necessary steps to protect your vehicle from the potential damage that can be caused by a hurricane.
Here are some tips to help you protect your vehicle during a hurricane:
Move Your Vehicle Before the Hurricane Hits
Move your vehicle to a safe location. If you live in an area that is prone to flooding, it’s best to move your vehicle to higher ground. If you can’t move your vehicle, make sure to park it in a garage or other covered area.
Keep Up on Maintenance
Make sure your vehicle is in good condition. Before a hurricane hits, make sure to check your vehicle’s fluids, tires, and brakes. If any of these items need to be replaced or repaired, do so before the storm hits.
Cover Your Vehicle
Cover your vehicle. If you can’t move your vehicle, make sure to cover it with a tarp or other waterproof material. This will help protect your vehicle from the wind and rain.
Prevent Electrical Damage
Disconnect the battery. If you can’t move your vehicle, make sure to disconnect the battery to prevent any electrical damage.
Fill up your gas tank. Make sure to fill up your gas tank before the storm hits. This will help ensure that you have enough fuel to get to safety if you need to evacuate.
