How do you protect your car from the snow without a garage?

What can I do to protect my car from the snow since I don’t have a garage? I have to park on the street at my apartment and I’m worried about my car this winter since I won’t be able to cover it.

Here are a few things you can do to protect your car from snow without a garage:
  • Stand up your wiper blades. This will prevent them from freezing to your windshield.
  • Use cooking spray. Spray your door seals with cooking spray to keep them from freezing shut; since oil repels water, your doors should open easily with this trick.
  • Wax your car. Before the winter weather sets in, you can wax your car to protect the paint from the harsh cold, snow, and salt.
  • Use a windshield cover. This will make it so you don’t have to scrape your windshield and can protect your car from snow.
  • Or, just cover your whole car. You can purchase a car cover for the winter to keep your entire car wrapped up.
  • Get a jumpstarter. A portable jumpstarter can be really helpful in the winter months, as your battery is more likely to die when it’s cold outside.
While you’re winterizing your parking practices, why not take a minute to update your insurance policy, too?
