If you’re a snowbird with a property and car in Southwest Florida, you probably expect to find your vehicle in the same condition as when you left it. Unfortunately, the harsh Florida environment with its humidity and saltwater can rapidly take its toll on an automobile, even when it’s garage kept.
Without proper maintenance in the harsh Florida environment, absentee homeowners may return and find such auto problems as mold, air conditioning failure, poor engine performance, tires with flat spots, dry rot of rubber seals and weather stripping, deterioration of hoses and wires, and a drained battery.
The moment someone is PAID to maintain, care for, drive or even in some cases retain care and control of a vehicle, the extension of that insurance coverage is NULL & VOID! This creates serious risks for “On property automotive care.”
Spending your Florida vacation time in a garage to deal with automobile issues is probably not your idea of a good time. Issues resulting from a poorly maintained car in the harsh Florida environment are often stressful and expensive.
