Now that we find ourselves under lockdown conditions again, it’s pretty likely that you won’t be using your car much over the coming weeks.

However, leaving your car unattended over an extended period of time can not only be a security risk but it could also jeopardise its functionality when you come to use it again.

So, to prevent any issues arising, we’re here to guide you through how to keep your car lockdown-secure.

That way, you’ll be best placed to use it again properly when you’re able to travel freely again when the restrictions are eventually lifted.

Step One: Leave Your Car Somewhere Safe

The first thing you’ll need to do is ensure you’re leaving your car somewhere where it’ll remain safe and secure.

The last thing you want, after all, is to return to your unattended car after several weeks to find it either vandalised or with parking notices plastered all over the windscreen.

Step Two: Check Its Coolant Level

With a winter lockdown, in particular, ensuring your car is able to cope with the colder months is imperative.

While most modern-day cars are designed with this in mind, it’s still worth taking the time to ensure it’s as winter-proof as possible by double-checking the coolant level, topping up the antifreeze and monitoring the tyre pressures.

Step Three: Don’t Cancel Your Car Insurance

While it may be tempting to try and cut costs here and there, don’t cancel your car insurance during the lockdown period.

Unless you are keeping your car on private land and declare it as being off the road, every vehicle in the UK will need to be taxed and insured. Otherwise, you could end up shelling out more than you would have saved in the first place!
