How long have you left your harp in the car for?

    O.k. I’m curious.

    I leave mine in the car overnight sometimes when I am sure it will not be frosty.

    It’s one way to have it stolen. I wonder, if I am traveling, which is safer, the car or the motel room? I guess if you would bring in your baggage, then harps go in too.

    Once there was a popular male duo-harp team (they’re both dead now) that left their harps in the van, overnight, while on tour.

    Inside, outside, or in the car, what is likely to distress any piece of
    fine woodwork is extremes or changes of temperature and humidity.

    It depends on the conditions ofcourse.

    I would never leave my harp in the car in the hot sun – but if it is shaded and the temperature is normal then I am OK with it for up to an hour or so.

    If the weather is good…not too hot or sunny, not too cold, not too humid, I’ll leave my harps in the car.

    Heck, I worry enough about transporting my harp in the car just during short road trips. I’d never dream of leaving it alone-even in the shade. With my luck an errant tree limb would break and crush both my van and harp. LOL

    I agree with what everybody else says. In principle, I’m mostly worried about theft of the car, and then obviously, temperature, but sometimes one just doesn’t have a choice.
