The Car Cover

The why, when and where’s of car covers. Why a car cover? If you have a vehicle that has value

then you need a car cover to protect that value. In today’s economy keeping the value of your

car is getting harder every day. The market value of your vehicle is falling as you read this

article. There is one way you can help keep your cars value, by using a car cover you will

protect the exterior finish from damages like UV rays, acid rain, dings, scratches, bird

droppings and more… The interior will also benefit from a cover by reducing the suns heat

from building up inside your car. This can damage anything that is plastic like your Cd’s,

DVD’s, and many other items. The cover will keep people passing by from seeing all your

interior accessories you have added to your car like a expensive stereo and speakers, other

custom items and valuables from shopping. Many times a car cover can help divert a theft of

your car or any valuables inside but it is wise to use a cable lock on your cover, which will

eliminate theft of the cover itself as well. By having a vehicle cover you will help keep that

new car look and it’s value when you sell it or trade it in.

When should you us a car cover? You should use a vehicle cover all year long. The car cover

will protect your vehicle in the summer from the sun. When fall comes it will protect your car

from the rain and hail and when winter arrives it will keep the snow and ice from damaging

your exterior finish and you won’t have to scrape your windows in the am before going to work.

Then in the spring it will protect your car from all kinds of weather from the sun to snow.

It’s always good to have a cover on your vehicles. There are many other reasons to keep your

car covered. It will protect your vehicle from dirt, dings, scratches, bird droppings, acid

rain, UV damage, kids playing around outside or in your garage just walking pass and rubbing

up against it. So the best time to cover your car is always.

Where can you get a vehicle cover? I find that the best place to buy a car cover is on the

Internet. The Internet gives you many choices to choose from and ton’s of information on and

about vehicle covers. If you have a computer just type car cover or truck, van, SUV, ATV or

any other cover you are looking for in the search box and it will give you all the information

you need to buy or explain the types of covers available for your vehicle and your climate

zone. If you don’t have a computer just go to your local library and use there computers to

look up and buy covers. If you don’t have a lot of computer knowledge then just ask the

Librarian for help, they will be happy to assist you. There are also retail stores that sell

car covers like auto parts stores and retailers like Walmart. I find buying covers at these

type of stores can be a shot in the dark. The only help you will get is the information

printed on the box and the counter person will only be able to look up your size and have

little information as to what style of cover to buy. So in my opinion the Internet is the

place to get your cover.
