Should I store my car in my garage?


When it comes to the best way to use your garage space, the team here at York Garage Doors are split in their opinion. We have one side who believe that there is little need to park their vehicle inside their garage and should use the space for a different function and potentially convert, whilst others believe it is vital that you keep your vehicle well protected in the garage.

Here is the latter’s reasoning behind their argument.


The area you live in may not have the highest crime rates, but it doesn’t mean that crime won’t happen. To make sure you’re not on the receiving end of such acts, protect your car by keeping it in the garage. Not only will it highly decrease the likelihood of it being stolen, but it will stop drivers of cars and bikes from clipping and damaging it on their way past.


Parking inside means that your car isn’t exposed to the various weather conditions and temperature changes. If your car is parked outside, the heat will seriously damage the paintwork whilst leaving your car a hot, melting mess to sit inside. The freezing temperatures will deteriorate the life of your engine and freeze any liquids inside the system (coolants, wind screen washer etc.).

Leaving your car inside means your car will run and look much better for a longer period of time.

Just so we aren’t giving you one side to the argument, you can read all about the advantages of a garage conversion here in one of our previous articles.
