3 Natural Hazards That Ruin Your Car & How to Protect It

BY Erin C.

Taking in the wonders that nature has to offer is something that many people love to enjoy. From beautiful birds to the tallest of trees, there’s no shortage of sights to be seen. While these natural wonders certainly seem harmless enough, without a car cover, they can inflict serious damage to your prized vehicle. These are 3 of Mother Nature's harshest elements when it comes to damage to your car.



Our fine feathered friends seem to have impeccable aim when it comes to leaving their droppings on our vehicles. Outdoor car covers catch bird bombs before they splatter against your paint job. Plus, the majority of outdoor car covers are engineered from sturdy fabrics that are not harmed by the dropping's acidity.



The shady spot under a tree may look like a welcome spot to park your vehicle. However, with leaves, nuts, berries, sap, pollen, not to mention the roosting birds, parking under a tree is generally not a good idea. A car cover can help keep your vehicle cool, even in the sun. Or, if you do park under a tree, a car cover can safeguard your vehicle from those aforementioned falling hazards.



Your vehicle's paint is only about 0.006” thick. Whether indoors or out, when dust sits on your paint it turns abrasive and causes minute scratches. By the time you notice them, it's already too late. Both indoor car cover fabrics and outdoor car cover fabrics are designed to keep dust away from the surface of your vehicle.

A custom-fit car cover is one of the easiest and most effective ways to protect your investment and keep your vehicle looking show-room new. Prevent unsightly dents, dings and scratches, made from both natural and man-made hazards, with these durable barriers available by crafted by the brands you know including Covercraft and Coverking.
