Exterior Vehicle Protection Tips

Empty Garage with Tools and Skylights

Even if you do everything right — including storing your vehicle in a secure, climate controlled location like ours — taking your car out for a drive around Chicago invites uncertainty. Ferrari Lake Forest is here with some tips to help protect the exterior of your vehicle and keep it turning heads for decades to come.

Properly Store Your Vehicle

Having your vehicle stored in a proper garage takes some aspects of exterior vehicle protection out of your hands. It means less stress and greater convenience — our valet in and out services make it quick and easy for you to hop behind the wheel. 

If you’re going to store your vehicle at home, however, you should be sure to use a car cover. Even if you store your car in your garage, dust and other particles can settle on it. If anyone else passes through your garage, a cover can also protect from spills and other accidents (and hide your prized vehicle from prying eyes).

Protecting Your Exterior

Whether you keep your vehicles at home, in your personal garage, or store with us at Ferrari Lake Forest, the surest way to protect your vehicle’s exterior is to keep up with routine cleaning and care, including:

  • Regular washing with factory-approved cleaners, drying by hand with a detailing cloth to avoid water spots
  • Professional detailing, including claying to remove contaminants that become embedded in the paint
  • Waxing to restore that new-car shine and add an additional layer of protection between the elements and your paint
  • Prompt fixing of any chips or scratches before they worsen
  • Avoiding leaving the vehicle in direct sunlight for too long

If you drive a premium vehicle, you shouldn’t leave these tasks to just anyone. Our service team handles detailing, paintless dent removal, and other exterior maintenance needs, including free premium car washes with vacuuming.
