Tricks to Park Your Car Safely In The Garage

You would think that your garage would be a safe place to park your car, but sometimes there are reasons it isn’t. Here at Garage Door Repair Services of Tampa, we have a few tricks to park your car safely in the garage without doing damage to your vehicle or home.

Keep Your Garage Clean

Many people use this area to store seasonal items, yard equipment, and other things. It’s not a problem to store your things in your garage unless the stuff gets in the way of parking. When you have your walls lined with stuff, you can end up running it over or falling on it when you get out.

Create a storage solution in your area to maximize the space. You can create shelving overhead that is out of the way of the doors. If that is not an option and you simply don’t have the room to store things, then consider downsizing.

Hang a Tennis Ball From The Track

One of the dangerous things about parking in the garage is pulling in too far. You don’t want to run into or back into the house. The best way to keep from doing that is to hang a tennis ball from the tracks. You will need to park your car exactly where it needs to be and then string up the ball. When you back in or pull in, stop when the ball rests on your glass.

Put Pool Noodles on The Walls

If you are in a tight space, getting your doors open can be a challenge. To protect your doors from slamming into the wall, attach a pool noodle to the wall. It will act as a bumper when you open your doors.

In order to do attach the pool noodle to the wall, you will need to screw long screws into it. You may consider putting a piece of wood in place before screwing in the noodle.

Maintain Your Garage Door

To keep from damaging your car from the garage door, you need to have one of our technicians come out and do a safety inspection. We will perform our Tune-n-Lube service while we are out. It is our goal to keep you and your car safe by making all repairs that are necessary.

Insulate The Door

Another way to keep your car safe inside of the garage is to insulate the door. Insulation and weather-stripping will regulate temperatures and cut down on moisture. You can install insulation onto an existing door or buy new equipment that is already insulated. Our team can help you with either of those projects.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
