car driving on roadLiving in an apartment has its fair share of responsibilities. It also means sharing a degree of public accommodations. Your apartment is your own, but once you step out the door, you have to share the space with others. In most cases, this means sharing a parking area. Apartment parking lots are usually very safe; however, they also remain public lots, at least for their residents. Therefore, apartment lots have unique risks present. What can you do to protect your vehicle in these spaces?

Apartment Parking Risks

You probably know, when you rent an apartment, you might have to agree to a few regulations regarding use of the area’s parking spaces.

· You might have to receive gate codes or access cards to enter the property.

· Some parking lots issue parking passes for residents, that you must display.

·You might have to register your vehicle with the leasing staff to avoid towing.

·Many complexes require drivers to park in certain spaces.

· For an additional fee, you might be able to get a reserved spot, or a covered space if the rest of the lot is uncovered parking.

The good news is, should an accident occur in your parking lot, your car insurance will cover the vehicle. It can also provide you with liability coverage in case you damage the vehicles of others, or the complex property itself. However, as a responsible resident, you must obey the rules within your complex. Doing so will help you and other residents throughout the property.

Protecting the Car in Your Parking Lot

Usually, to safeguard your car in your apartment’s lot, you’ll primarily need to follow the rules.

For example, make sure that if you have an assigned parking space, you park only there. Do not park in any place where you might not have permission. Renew parking passes as necessary.

Furthermore, take a few extra precautions in this public space:

·If you have gates on the complex, make sure they always close behind you when entering the property. Don’t let anyone follow you in.

· Don’t leave personal items on view inside the car. Remove all your belongings whenever you get out of the vehicle.

· Lock the car and arm the security in all situations.

· Park close to your residence, if possible. If you can keep eyes on the car, then you’ll know it at least is close by.

Also, always be careful when driving within the complex. Take care when pulling into or out of parking spots, since traffic might pass around you at any time. Furthermore, keep a close eye out for pedestrians, particularly children or groundskeepers, who frequently crisscross the complex.
