As you found out, you are responsible for your vehicle and anything that may occur. Read on to find out some tips that will help you avoid the unnecessary frustration and anger that comes with a damaged vehicle
Park Between The White Lines
Have you ever noticed how poorly some other renters park. When you live in a large community, you will probably be parking next to different vehicles everyday unless you have assigned parking. Be sure and park evenly between the white lines. This will reduce any door dings or other damage. Also pull all the way into your parking space.
If you want to erase all risk from damage, try asking your leasing agent if you can rent a private parking garage in your Humble apartments.
Park In A Well Lit Area

If you have an Ipod, wallet, purse, or anything else of value exposed, you may find it missing when you return. A great rule of thumb is leave your car empty of these valuable items. If there isn’t anything to steal, then there is probably no reason to break in.
