Like everything in our lives, our cars must be well maintained and protected. The neighborhoods and driving culture of Accra can pose a threat to the safety of our vehicles. To help protect your automotive babies, we have put together seven tips to help you do this.

 

1. KEEP IT LOCKED

Always lock your car whenever you exit the vehicle, even if you only will be out for a short time. Cars parked in streets and public parking lots are the easiest to access, so ensure all the doors are locked firmly, and the vehicle’s interior is inaccessible at all times. 

 

2. UTILIZE AN INTERNAL/EXTERNAL STEERING WHEEL LOCK

An added security measure you can utilize to protect your car is to use steering locks. You may lock the wheel of your automobile by turning off the vehicle and removing the keys. Next, turn the steering wheel in any direction until you hear a click. If your car doesn’t allow you to do this – you can purchase a manual steering lock device and use it to lock your wheel.

 

3. CLOSE ALL WINDOWS

Be sure to shut all your windows whenever you leave your car in a public place. If you are concerned about the temperature increasing, you can leave a little space at the top. However, this doesn’t guarantee the utmost security.

 

4. PARK IN AN INACCESSIBLE PLACE

Parking your car in a secure, inaccessible place is the ultimate way to protect your vehicle, as this puts your car out of reach from thieves and potential hazards. Park your vehicle in a secure location to keep it safe. Your garage, a protected parking space, or a secured compound can be a safe place. 

 

5. PARK YOUR CAR PROPERLY IN PUBLIC PLACES

Number five on our list of ways to protect your car is always to park it properly. Doing so reduces accidental scratches, dents from other drivers, and possible collisions. Park correctly and avoid parking too close to other vehicles.

 

6. DEVELOP A REGULAR CAR MAINTENANCE HABIT

Another tip for protecting your car is regular maintenance of all the parts. Keeping the vehicle free from problems increases the car’s performance and safety when operating. Skipping regular maintenance might put you and your passengers in danger.

 

7. ALWAYS RE-SPRAY YOUR CAR IF THERE’S A SCRATCH

The paint on the body of your car does more than you may realise. Apart from looks, it also protects your car’s body from corrosion and against the effects of UV rays. So make sure no parts of your vehicle are without paint.

 

Maintaining your car in mint condition in Ghana can be challenging – considering the extreme weather and recklessness of drivers on Accra’s roads. These tips will help you keep your car in optimum form and protect it against theft and potential damage.
