Watch Out for Stray Carts, Holiday Shoppers!

Watch Out for Stray Carts, Holiday Shoppers!

The holiday season is officially upon us, and with Thanksgiving in our rear view, it’s time to focus on the ramping up of holiday shopping. During the days between Thanksgiving and Christmas, malls, shopping centers and other retailers are filled with people looking for the perfect gifts for their friends, family or significant others, and everyone’s in a hurry to get back to the warmth and out of the cold. In this hustle and bustle of the holiday season, stray carts are a more common sight than normal in parking lots meaning that your vehicle is more at risk than other times of year.

Stray Shopping CartWhile being defensive with your parking approach – parking near berms or islands in lots, for example – can help, with lots generally quite crowded, that’s not always a possibility. That means that there’s an ever-present risk that your car will get dented, whether you didn’t see that stray cart as you pulled into a space or another customer’s neglected cart being blown into your parked vehicle.

Dents caused by shopping carts present several different problems. First, you’re stuck looking at this dent in your beautiful car. It’s also the holiday season, and the last thing anyone wants to do is spend money on their car or have to leave their car at an auto repair shop for a long repair during this busy time of year. It’s an inconvenience no one wants to deal with!
