The weather for Spring 2023 has already been a rough one. A lot of storms in a short time, and it looks like this could be the trend for the year. With hail being a cause of damage on roofs and cars I figured we could try to save one of those things.

Today we are looking at ways to save your car from hail.


Many Sources state the obvious, find shelter... places like a parking garage, gas station, bank, or anywhere else that has a roof that your car can fit under.

DO NOT PARK UNDER A TREE. In the moment it might seem like a smart idea to try and save your car a little bit, but a tree falling is a very bad time. The only time this is okay is if there are NO HIGH WINDS.

Ways To Protect Your Car From Hail


  • Use floor mats or rugs on windows

You can also try to use towels or blankets to help, but floor mats are the best. Cardboard boxes work as well.

  • Fold your side mirrors in

A bit of a simple one here, but this easily at least protects your mirrors.

  • Park as close as you can to a solid structure

If there is a structure nearby with a roof you may be able to avoid some damage to your car by parking up close to that building and using the slight cover from the roof.


  • Have Insurance

This year is looking like a rough one for cars... make sure you get insurance just in case we get even worse storms on the way.
