Find out how you can get cheap car insurance just by installing a carport.
After your house, your car is likely to be your next highest valuable asset. You’re going to want to look after it, so investing in car insurance is a must. Unfortunately, car insurance is usually expensive, and cheap car insurance can be hard to find.
One of the best ways to get cheap car insurance is to protect your vehicle with a carport. Given the importance of owning a vehicle, it’s surprising how few of us actually give our car a home of its own.
Some insurance companies think about location when calculating your premium. Places such as off-street carports, garages and secure parking carry a higher risk when compared to secured parking areas.
When your vehicle is protected from natural and man-made damage, it will last a lot longer. It will also illustrate to your car insurance company you’re serious about security.
Having a carport means far more than simply putting a slanted roof on the side of a building.
Chosen and fitted correctly, carports can enhance a property visually and also add real value to your property.
Cheap car insurance: carports offer protection against the elements
In Australia, where harsh weather conditions often prevail, it’s well worth your time and effort to build a carport.
We all enjoy being indoors during bad weather, but you car won’t like being out in it!
Summer is no safer, with the sun wreaking havoc and destroying the beautiful paintwork and cracking the leather seats.
Having towering eucalyptus trees with precariously dangling branches can also be a liability for your car insurance premiums.
Carports will provide essential protection for cars, bikes and caravans against the harsh Australian elements.
With a carefully planned carport – including a vast array of materials, colours and finishes to choose from – we can help you protect your assets the same way in which you protect yourself: with a roof overhead.
Carports protect your car against scratches and dents
If your car is near children playing, there is nothing to stop a rogue cricket ball making a dent in the door.
What about unexplained scratches (frustratingly resembling car keystrokes) which appear overnight across the car’s body?
Building a carport ensures your car is parked safely on your property, away from anything that might scratch, dent or otherwise harm it.
Deter thieves with a carport
Carports can act as a safeguard against theft. While thieves are naturally tempted by easy targets, having a well-lit carport with sensors lights will stop them in their tracks.
As the majority of car thefts occur in public spaces, installing a carport means you have a better chance of deterring and keeping thieves at bay – while keeping your property and possessions safe.
