Parking your vehicle can lead to getting many scratches

The car insurance specialist Aviva has revealed that they have seen an increase in claims concerning vehicles being scratched due to awkward parking spaces when parking a car.

Parking your car can be a pain sometimes especially when parking spaces can be really tight when trying to park your car. You should always try to stay calm and don’t feel rushed by other motorists queuing behind you or trying to get past. Take your time. You can also ask someone to help guide you into the space. If you have a passenger then you could ask them to get out so you don’t have to worry about leaving enough space for them to open the car door on their side.

Just try to park your car in a space that has enough room on either side of the car and if it is an extra walk to your destination then so be it, so long as your car is safely parked.
