Skip those Summer Season Mishaps with Scratch and Dent Insurance

Summer is here. What does that mean? Lots of sun-soaked adventures, and busy parking lots. Unfortunately, along with the seasonal joys, there’s an increased chance of getting unexpected scratches, dings, or dents on your car. 

As the number of cars on the roads rise, so do the chances of unexpected mishaps. Here’s how you can avoid summer season mishaps:

Dodge parking lot hazards

To avoid the mad rush, do your Christmas shopping as early as possible, or on your favourite online store. The festive season tends to bring chaos to the roads, overcrowded parking lots, and a surge in people’s carelessness. Imagine you’re doing your last minute Christmas shopping at your local mall, only to discover an unexplained scratch or dent on your car. Where did that come from? You guessed right, a rogue trolly or car door. 

By doing your Christmas shopping well in advance, you ditch the mad rush and avoid parking lot hazards. 

Keep your eye on the storm

While summer brings sunshine, it can also unleash hailstorms that wreak havoc on your car. 

The first line of defence against hailstorms is to stay informed about weather forecasts. Keep an eye on your weather app to receive timely updates on potential hailstorms. Another effective way to avoid hail damage is to park your car in covered areas. Garages, carports, and parking structures protect your car from hail.

You can do your best to avoid hail, but it’s not always possible. Hail damage can be frightening and costly. Our Scratch and Dent Insurance puts your mind at ease. When nature strikes, we cover you for specified repairs.

Sidestep windscreen chips

There’s nothing better than the feeling of driving on an open road. Unfortunately, you won’t experience this during the summer holidays. The roads are often chaotic, with thousands of families embarking on road trips. With the rise in road users, and the extensive roadworks, comes an increase in the possibility of windscreen chips. When driving, try to avoid driving behind trucks or construction vehicles. These vehicles often have stones lodged in their tyres. You don’t want a stone to hit your windscreen, causing a chip.

A windscreen chip can lead to a series of cracks that become a serious driving hazard. You often end up having to replace the entire windscreen. Luckily, if you have a Scratch and Dent Insurance policy, you’re covered for windscreen chips.

Our Scratch and Dent Insurance is your ultimate shield against those summer surprises that put a dent in your budget.
