Struggle of parking your car while travelling

Regardless of the fact if you live in Melbourne or not, a problem that everyone faces while travelling out of their country is that where will they end up parking their car. A lot of people end up taking a cab to the airport and leaving their car at home or at a relative’s place. A problem with leaving your car at home is the security part where it might be left unattended and could potentially get stolen. The problem with parking at your relatives place is that there might not be enough space. This can leave you in a situation where you cannot decide what you should do. A lot of airports offer the service to park your car at the airport but these spots are limited and have a high demand and hence have a really high price. In some cases the price to park for your entire trip at the airport might be equal to your air fare or even higher and that is why you should consider using a service like parkos.

Good alternate option for parking your car safely

If you are willing to spend a large amount of money you can end up choosing the option to park your car at the airport but it is one that is not recommended. You can use a service like parkos which will park your car at a contracted car park for a much lesser price than what you will pay at the airport. This way your car will be secure when you leave the country and you will not have to think about whether your car will be secure or not when you are not in possession of it. The thought that one of your important assets is safe will allow you to enjoy your trip if you are travelling for pleasure or allow you to focus on important work if it is a business trip.

Things to keep in mind while storing your car away for some time

There are a few things that you should prepare your car for if you plan to park it away for some time and they are crucial for your car’s health. Before you store your car you should look to get your car checked so that when you return you do not end up in situation where it does not start up when you get back from your trip. Check all the oil levels and water levels before you park it. It is also important that you get your car refueled but not completely so that you can allow for some expansion in case the weather turns hot. It is also important that you remove all your valuable belongings from the car before you hand it over to someone to park it as the valuables might end up getting misplaced.

Things to do when you return

There are things to keep in mind when you get back from your trip and before you get back from your trip. It is very important that you inform the relevant person taking care of your car the details of your arrival so they can prepare and bring your car to the airport for you to use it. When you get in your car after the trip, check for all the documents that claim your ownership and make sure that it is your car indeed. Check for valuables if you have any and take care of all paperwork necessary and drive away.
