Hailstorms Can Cause Damage to Your Vehicle This Fall

As we enter into the Fall season around the country, severe storms become more of a possibility. Here in Texas, we’ve seen some pretty bad storms in recent years. Texas was hit last year with an ice storm that left damages to property. Hailstorms can occur in our state, which is why it’s important to be ready and prepared, especially when it comes to protecting your vehicle from damages.

Hailstorm damage to vehicle

As we enter hail season, here are a few tips to make sure you are ready:

Be Alert on Weather Announcements and Storm Warnings

Hailstorms can come on quickly, but you will usually get some warning – even if it’s only a few minutes. The best thing to do is stay connected to a local news outlet that transmits emergency information from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. These alerts primarily arrive through text or SMS alerts to your phone, making them easy to keep mindful of.

Cover What You Can

If you can get to your car easily, quickly move it to a place where it can be somewhat protected, such as a garage or at least a covered area like beneath a tree. This can sometimes be difficult, but if you live somewhere that gets a lot of hail, it could be beneficial to invest in a simple car cover or pop-up carport to protect your automobile.

Assess the Damage

After a storm, take a quick look at your car and your home to see if anything was damaged. For cars, look for cracks to windshields that can be dangerous the next time you drive.
