Here are seven reasons why a garage is an essential must-have for your Springs Oklahoma City luxury apartment home.

1. Safety First

No neighborhood is immune from car thieves and prowlers. These are generally crimes of opportunity, so storing your car in a garage keeps it from being a target for roving eyes.

2. Avoid the Effects of Temperature

Believe it or not, keeping your car indoors can improve its performance in a couple of different ways.

  • When your car is sheltered from extreme temperatures, oil and other fluids maintain a more stable condition, which allows the engine to run more efficiently.
  • Moderate temperatures also mean that the car will warm up more quickly on cold days and cool off more quickly on hot ones.

3. Protect the Finish

Rain, snow, hail, wind and other weather conditions can take a toll on a car's exterior. In addition to the inconvenience of having to wash your car more often, weather elements can cause more serious damage by weakening the clear coat and potentially leading to rust.

4. Stay Ding-Free

The most careful driver in the world is helpless in the face of countless other drivers. Parking lots are notorious hotspots for dings, fender benders and other cosmetic damage that's rarely serious on its own, but can add up quickly.

5. No More "Musical Cars"

Without assigned parking, there's a daily scramble for the best spots and you could end up as the last car standing. Having a garage gives you guaranteed rock-star parking just steps away from your home.

6. Reduce Car Insurance Premiums

Who isn't looking for ways to lower their insurance premiums? Many companies offer reduced rates for cars that are stored in a garage due to the lesser risk of theft or damage.

7. Added Storage

The words "too much storage" are in no one's vocabulary. A garage is a useful place to store larger items and things that are used infrequently, such as tools or holiday decorations.
