Sometimes it seems pointless to wash your car. Whether you get it done professionally or you do it yourself, washing your car is a costly and time-consuming task. And, 9 times out of 10, one or more of the following scenarios happens to you within the 24-hour period after washing your car: it rains (even though there was no rain in the forecast for weeks), you park under a sick bird, or you drive through a kamikaze of suicidal bugs. The solution doesn’t reside in you giving up car washes, surprisingly, but rather in giving your auto the best protection possible between washes.
Protecting Your Vehicle
When it comes to protecting your vehicle, nothing does it quite like custom car covers. Whether you park indoors or out, car covers can keep Mother Nature, bird droppings and dust from destroying your paint job. Because there are so many indoor and outdoor car covers on the market, making yourself familiar with these tips on purchase a car cover and car cover ideas will help you in making the best car cover buying decision to meet your specific needs.
If you primarily park indoors, you want to choose an indoor car cover, like the Coverking Triguard Car Cover or the Covercraft Dustop Car Cover. These car covers protect against bumps and dings that may happen in the garage, while also keeping dust from scratching your paint job. Or, if you’re planning on storing your car for long periods of time, you may want to opt for a car bag. Car bags work like a giant zip-lock, keeping your paint, chrome and upholstery looking good for years.
The Importance of Covering Your Car
On the other hand, if you park in a driveway or at the curb, you need the heavy-duty protection of an outdoor car cover. From hailstorms to tree sap, outdoor car covers, like the Covercraft Noah Car Cover, keep your paint job protected from whatever comes its way.
Another decision you need to make is whether to go with a custom fit or universal car cover. A custom fit car cover, like a Mustang car cover or a Camaro car cover, is made to fit your specific year, make and model. So, you get the best fit and protection possible. Universal car covers cost a bit less, but don’t hug every contour of your auto’s curves like a custom car cover does.
