Protect Your Vehicle Louvres and Rain Shields: A Must-Know Guide for Car Owners

Transporting your vehicle can be a stressful process, and there are many things to consider before handing your car over to a transport company. One important aspect that is often overlooked is the need to secure the vehicle louvres or rain shields. In this blog, we'll explain why it's essential to secure these parts before transporting your vehicle with SMB Australia Car Transport and why we take steps to secure them for you.

When your vehicle is transported on a car carrier, it may be loaded in various directions depending on the other vehicles being transported. Sometimes, vehicles are loaded backwards, which means the wind can push against the rear of your car, potentially causing loose parts to come off. Rear window louvres are one example of parts that are not designed to have the wind pushing against them the opposite way. Loose parts can cause damage to your vehicle or become a safety hazard on the road.

That's why it's crucial to secure your rear window louvre or any other rain shields before you transport your vehicle. You can use duct tape or any other adhesive to secure the louvres in place.

At SMB Australia Car Transport, we understand the importance of securing these parts, which is why we always remind our customers to secure their vehicle louvres before transport. In cases where the customer has not secured them, we will use tape to secure them for safe transport. This way, you can have peace of mind knowing your vehicle is safe and secure during transport.

In conclusion, securing your vehicle louvres or rain shields is a crucial step in preparing your car for transport. You should do this to prevent any damage to your vehicle during transportation or potential safety hazards on the road. If you forget or are unsure how to secure these parts, don't worry - SMB Australia Car Transport has got you covered. We take extra steps to secure these parts for you so that you can have a stress-free car transport experience.
