Properties with a garage -security and protection for your vehicles
People often ask if a property on Ibiza needs a garage. If you only visit the island for a few days in the summer, then obviously it isn’t necessary, but if you wish to relocate here permanently and want to be mobile, the usefulness and value of a property with a garage soon becomes clear.
The main reason for a garage
The main reason for having a garage in Ibiza is the same as elsewhere: protecting your vehicle from the elements. On Ibiza, the strong sunlight is a particularly important factor. It takes a heavy toll on your car’s paintwork, and also heats up the interior of your car to such an extent that you have to cool it with the air conditioning before you can use it. Not to mention that the materials, both inside and out, are greatly affected.
Further reasons for having a garage
Vehicles are often only seldom used because the property is not permanently inhabited. In such cases, a garage protects your vehicle from the elements, which can be particularly devastating during the winter months. Hard to believe but true: a few years ago a violent hailstorm on Ibiza destroyed hundreds of cars. In addition, keeping your vehicles in a garage prevents potential damage by third parties, whether intentional or unintentional. If your property has a garage, you are definitely on the safe side.
