Try some of these tips to make sure you don’t lose your car in the parking lot this Black Friday!
5 Tips for Finding Your Car in the Parking Lot
Use Your Remote Lock
If you have a remote lock/unlock device, you can use this to hone in on your car, kind of like sonar. Hold it above your head (this extends its range) and press the lock button to trigger the beeping lock sound from your car. Follow your ears until you’ve found your car!
Park Near a Landmark
There aren’t many landmarks in parking lots, but there are some spots which may be easier to remember than others. Try parking in a corner, next to a tall light post, or a tree. This will at least narrow down your search to a smaller area.
Take a Picture with Your Phone
Take a picture of the store you’re about to enter from your parking spot. This will give you a point of reference to work from. Before you enter the store, take another picture back towards where you came from. This should help guide you in the right direction.
Grab one of those Ravens window flags and attach it to your car! There are bound to be other people with these flags, but this will at least give you something to look for.
Shopping with a partner? If one of you is tired, rest in the car while the other goes to shop. When they’re done, have them call you. You can pull up right by the exit and be on your way!
