Remove Valuables From the Car
Even though our lot is incredibly secure it is always best to remove all valuables from the car. Did you know that thieves target cars with visible white phone cords? These cords are used to charge expensive devices such as phones, tablets, GPS systems, etc. Before you leave your car in the parking lot, remove all your white charging cords. This will reduce the chance of a thief targeting your car.
Do you keep important documents in your glove box? If so it is best to remove these as well. Especially documents with private information on them. It also goes without saying, but remove spare keys to your vehicle. Leaving spare keys in your car may be convenient for you, but it is also a convenience for a thief. They can access your trunk and also simply take your car.
Clean Your Car
The most obvious benefit of having a clean car is having a comfortable ride home. This is especially important with perishable products like food. Failing to remove these will mean you are welcomed home to some unpleasant smells.
But did you know that a tidy car adds another layer of security? Cluttered cars attract more attention, but a clean car tells onlookers that the car is secure and there is nothing to steal. If a potential thief can look into the car and see bags or other potential hiding places for valuables they are more inclined to break in. A clean car shows them there is nothing to take.
Check Your Tires
The last thing you want when returning home from a long flight is to have to deal with a flat in the parking lot. Fully inflate and check your tires before leaving your car in long-term airport parking. Even a small leak will result in a flat if left long enough. This is especially important in cold climates as cool air affects the air pressure of your tires.
Top Up the Fluids
You will thank yourself for thinking ahead when you return after a long flight. Filling up your gas before you leave your car in long-term airport parking saves you a trip to the gas station.
You should also add a fuel stabilizer when leaving your car for 30 days or more. This stops the gas tank from oxidizing. You will also need to check your oil and make sure the tank is full. Filling your windshield wiper fluid will also help wipe away any dust, debris, or snow when you return.
Park in a Covered Spot
If you can, secure a covered parking spot. This will protect your vehicle from the weather, including heavy rain, snowstorms, and beating sunlight. If you cannot secure a covered spot you can consider buying a car cover.
