Car parks can be a nightmare: the stress of navigating them while subtly warring for that perfect space can really raise the blood pressure.

Slow Down – This advice applies to two separate things: both the speed at which you are driving within a car park, and the amount of time you give yourself to finding a space. Being cutthroat and swerving into an open space ahead of a fellow motorist may seem like a savvy move, but it could lead to a nasty (and thoroughly embarrassing) bump. Drive slowly, giving you plenty of time to react to a motorist appearing out of nowhere, or a space that’s a bit narrower than you envisioned, and don’t park too aggressively. This simple bit of advice can do wonders and mean you won’t be visiting our car body repair experts near Esher for bumper repair, paint repair or dent repair.
Choose Wisely – If you drive a large vehicle, don’t squeeze it in the first space you come across if it looks a tad on the tight side of things. You open yourself up to an increased risk of damage, as a fellow motorist may be led to trying to squeeze in alongside you; this is one of the most common reasons cited by our Esher clients for requiring forms of car body repair like bumper repair, paint repair and dent repair.
Keep Aware – Many Esher residents are using the same car park each and every day, for work, the school run or shopping; this naturally leads to complacency… after all you learn the car park pretty inside out! But whether or not you could manoeuvre through it with a blind fold on or not, you need to stay sharp and aware when parking; for there are always motorists out there who aren’t sharp and aware, putting you and your vehicle at risk of damage that calls for car body repair, bumper repair, paint repair and dent repair.
