How to protect my car from hail if I don’t have a garage?

I just moved, and I now live in a hail-prone area of Oregon. I have no garage for my vehicle, so are there any good tips for protecting my car from hail without a garage?

Hail can cause major damage to your car, so it’s smart to look for ways to protect your vehicle.
If you don’t have access to covered parking, a car cover may be your best option.
If you live in an area that is particularly prone to hail storms, you may also want to invest in a collapsible carport that can be stored on the side of or inside your house. Make sure to constantly monitor the weather in your area to stay ahead of incoming hail and give yourself enough time to set up the carport before the storm.
For additional protection, you may want to look into comprehensive car insurance, which will protect you if you need to make a claim due to a weather event.
