In the event of visible damage to the car, the report must state whether there is anything to object to departure.
It is only recommended to park on supervised parking spaces, in garages or in carports. If this is not possible, it is recommended to install visible anti-theft measures.
Do not leave valuables and money or credit cards in the car.
