Toyota safe parkingEven though it should get easier every time you go through the steps before getting on a flight, it seems like there is something new to worry about each time you go. From making sure your boarding passes print to checking your luggage, traveling by plane can be stressful. The last thing you should have to worry about is whether your vehicle is safe when using airport parking! Toyota of North Charlotte has put together some tips to ensure you are getting the most out of your airport parking experience.

How to prepare your car for airport parking

Park efficiently and safely – Airport parking can be pretty confusing at times. There’s also usually a bunch of people around just as confused as you! Always be on the lookout when driving in an airport parking garage or lot. And remember to park accurately! You don’t want to accidentally take up a spot that someone else could use. An easy way to make sure you’re lined up is by using Toyota’s backup camera. That way, you can always see if you’re between the lines.

Know what to take out valuables – Toyota of North Charlotte never recommends keeping valuables unattended inside of your car. This can be especially said if you’re going to leave the vehicle unattended for multiple days! Be sure to bring whatever valuables you can with you on your trip, and hide anything else. Items like phone chargers, expensive sunglasses, and more can attract people looking to commit car theft. So be sure to keep them out of sight!

Clear out anything that can spoil – Unfortunately, most parking garages and lots aren’t climate controlled. Because of this, our North Charlotte dealership suggests making sure you clear your car out of anything that could possibly spoil or make a mess if left too long in a hot car. You wouldn’t want to come back from your trip to a messy situation in the airport parking lot! Some things you should always remove so they won’t get ruined are makeup, medicine, bottled water, and food.

Remember your spot and keep track of your ticket – Thanks to advancements in technology, it’s pretty easy to remember your airport parking spot!  All you need to do is take a picture of the spot and the lot or floor with your phone. Another thing to remember is to keep your parking ticket safe. Toyota of North Charlotte recommends either putting it inside of your wallet, or finding a safe spot in your car.
