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.
