Protecting your car from the elements can be a difficult task, especially during severe weather. In places where hail storms are prevalent, suffering serious damage to the car’s outer body is a genuine possibility.
Here are some steps that can be taken to avoid damage sustained during hailstorms.
It is important to know what type of weather conditions can manifest themselves as hailstorms. If you have checked the forecast and a mixture of hail and rain is predicted, you should get your car into a covered area as soon as possible. Ensure that it is not parked under a tree, because a severe storm might cause the branches to fall on your car.
For those who do not have any covered parking spots as an option, try covering the car with as many thick blankets as possible. This will not provide complete protection, but it should ensure that any damage sustained is limited to minor dents and scratches.
Under no circumstances should you be driving during a hailstorm. Weather conditions can be bad enough with rain and wind, but a particularly strong hail stone could hit your windshield and cause an accident and/or injury to you and others.

If hail damage has already been inflicted on your car, it is best to take it to a repair center so that it can be properly repaired. Collision Center of Andover provides tow services for cars that are too damaged to drive, and full hail repairs to all afflicted areas.
