You know the drill. As summer months wind to a close, and the kids head back to school that also means the Mamaroneck holiday rush around is close to beginning. The fall and Halloween decorations are out; it’s followed closely by Thanksgiving, and before you know it the full holiday cycle is in swing. This post is provided by A.J. Benet’s Mamaroneck Auto Insurance programs. Call us today for a free quote. (888) 639-4560

With the festivities, this also means that the malls, outlets, and grocery stores will be severely overcrowded.  During the holidays, the frequency of parking lot accidents increases by approximately 20 percent according to a study by a national insurer. To help protect  your car from dings and dents, follow these parking lot tips:

Watch your speed. It is easier to avoid potential accidents if you have time to brake. You can avoid cars that are speeding, cut in front of you, or that pull out unexpectedly from their parking space.

Check your mirrors…twice. Use your eyes and mirrors to make sure that you have a clear path before backing out (or pulling in) front of a space.

Take the scenic route. Park your vehicle farther from store entrances. It is generally less crowded, and  your car is less likely to get dings or scratches on it.

Despite your best efforts, if you do happen to get into a parking accident, report it to the police and your insurer immediately. Even if it seems minor, reporting it makes sure you’re protected in case the other party doesn’t have insurance or files a claim.
