START SLIDESHOW >>

Driving a beautiful luxury vehicle home is a great feeling. As the anticipation of your new car builds, be sure that you are adequately prepared at home to welcome your car home appropriately. Caring for your car is a multi-step process.

Make Room for Storage

Finding a place to store your car is especially important when preparing to drive your new luxury vehicle home. It might be something to pass over if you already have a garage. But before you check the box of having adequate storage, make sure you take some time to actually gauge the space.

Think about your new car’s doors—how far do they swing out? How long is the car? Depending on the measurements, you may or may not want to move some things. You also might decide to move things like bikes and scooters to an area not adjacent to your parking spot in the garage to avoid accidents that result in chipping your car’s paint.

Fix The Driveway

It’s also important to fix your driveway when it comes to making your home car-read. Having a clean, smooth driveway will ensure that your tires don’t get beat up.

There are a variety of ways to go about caring for your driveway. One of the most important is sealcoating—coating your driveway with a protective layer that prevents cracks from forming. Sealcoating can prevent damage to cars parked in a driveway.

Add a Covering If Necessary

Depending on your particular housing situation, you might not have a garage already. If you are in an apartment where there are parking spots to rent or if you live in a house with just a driveway, it’s important to think about how to protect your car without a garage.

Regardless of if you live in an area where it snows regularly or if you live somewhere where it is really hot year-round, it’s important that you get some type of covering for your vehicle. Without it, your paint could become more dull in the sun or snow and ice could chip your car.

Figuring out how to ensure your home is ready for your new vehicle is a process. But make sure that you give yourself adequate time to be prepared. If you take the necessary time to see your garage well set up or to prepare an outdoor space for your car, you’ll feel greater peace of mind once you’ve actually purchased the car.
