Whether you park your car under trees, bird nests, or in the garage- car covers provide the best protection against any costly dings and dents you can imagine. But what kind of different types of car covers exist, and which one fits your needs best? We have compiled a little summary.

Introducing the 4 natural enemies of your car

If you have to park your car on a street which is bordered by trees, you may be familiar to this common problem. After a windy and rainy night, you'll find your valuable car covered with leaves, pollen, nuts, berries, and sap. Besides the pain of pulling the stuff out of your hood gaps and cleaning your rubber door sealant, this kind of flying debris can cause serious scratches and dents to your finish.

Evil trees aren't the only foes out there. Even trickier are birds. These feathered friends turn into tousled enemies at night when they're roosting and dropping their acid bombs on your finish. You have two choices: either you act quickly and remove that paint-eating slime, or you let it dry and have an even harder time removing it, with some serious headaches coming along. The choice should be clear - protect your paint before it's too late.

So far, we have talked about the more obvious reasons you should protect your car with a car cover. But, whether you are indoors or outdoors, dust particles can cause minor scratches on your finish. That's because your paint is only 0.006 inches thick. When dust sits on your paint, wiping it off may even cause more harm. And that's when it's already too late.

However, the biggest natural enemies of your car are car drivers. As much as you would like to, you can't really avoid them. They are there. Out on the road. And they're ready to ruin your pricey car with their absent-mindedness, oblivion, and ignorance. After experiencing an accidental contact from another driver's door, you can either strike back or think twice. Car covers take away the headache of thinking about fixing those dents and scratches. Further, they spoil the fun for those nasty-minded guys on our streets.

Which car cover is right for me?

Luckily, there are several types of car covers available, customized for your specific needs. If you consider birds and trees as the major possible sources of damage, go for an outdoor car cover. Whether you park your car on the street, or if you don't have enough garage space to fit your car, these custom-fit outdoor car covers are the way to go. The most common manufacturers for outdoor covers are WeatherShield, Noah, and Sunbrella.

Usually a bit lighter than their outdoor counterparts, an indoor car cover consists of a breathable surface that allows some air flow if your car is parked in the garage or other closed spaces. If you have incautious kids that use your garage as their favorite playground, or hyper dogs that like to test their claws on everything valuable, you can also pick a heavier indoor car cover that still provides breathability but has an improved surface that also stop dings and dents.

And there's more: all-weather, semi-custom car covers find the balance between protecting your car without emptying your wallet. Although most of the car covers on the market work great for sedans, there are a number of possibilities to give your convertible, rig or bike the protection it deserves. Truck and SUV cab covers, motorcycle covers, and convertible covers install quickly and are easily adaptable.
