Your vehicle is one of the most expensive purchases you have made, aside from your home. No matter the make, model, or year of your vehicle you want to make sure it is taken care of to the best of your abilities. However, does your vehicle get to park in its designated home? Or does your clutter and forgotten items get in the way? While you may think parking in the garage is a far-fetched idea, here are 3 reasons why you should contemplate organizing your garage to be able to park within.
Saves You Time
Between bringing groceries inside and running back in after forgetting your cell phone, the time spent between your car and the door add up! When you can park inside your garage you will find yourself spending less time in the back and forth. Your AC will come on faster and your car itself won’t be as hot, so you don’t have to wait for your car to cool down.
Protects Your Vehicle
You want your vehicle to last as long as possible without losing its shine. Parking inside your garage will protect it from the many damaging effects sitting out in the sun can do to your car. Having a new epoxy garage flooring can also help with making sure the temperature inside your garage doesn’t get too hot. A few issues you could prevent are dulled paint, cracked leather, faded dashboard, and lowered fluid levels. Keeping your vehicle inside will prevent avoidable wear and tear.
If your goal is to park your vehicle inside your garage, you will need to keep everything inside organized and put away. You can use different cabinet systems or even overhead storage to help with this. You will be able to reduce clutter in your garage as you will glaringly see everything needing to be organized. Make sure you toss or donate those items you no longer utilize as soon as you take notice. Be sure to deep clean everything once or twice a year to make sure everything is still where it belongs so you don’t find yourself parking on the street again.
Parking in your garage provides you with many other benefits as well. You can start today by decluttering a small area and moving onto others as you have the time. Be sure to do a little each day so you can see the progress without other items filling up the space again. Even a few totes will give your organization process more structure with smaller amounts of time.
