DENTON, TX – When your car lot is located in tornado alley, it is difficult to avoid getting battered by hail every so often.
One dealership is sick of having a “hail sale”, especially after suffering $45,000 in storm damages to 22 cars in 2014.
WFAA.com says Ezec Auto Sales on Fort Worth Drive is doing something to thwart car damage anytime that the risk of hail is in the forecast. They drape tarps over their cars on the lot.
“Sometimes people are kind of laughing, criticizing when we’re doing that,” said manager Ezequiel Quinonez.
Their theory is that hail just might bounce off the tarp, minimizing any damage. “I don’t know if it will help us too much, but at least we’re trying our best,” said worker Lucrecia Quevedo.
