Want to easily take care of your pride and joy through the autumn and winter? Then it might be time to invest in a car cover! They can protect your car’s paint job from the worst that Mother Nature can throw at it. Read on to find out how they can help!

Not everyone has a garage, and modern cars are often too big to fit in older ones! A car cover can be really useful for keeping your car protected from the elements. We’ve got a great selection to suit all sorts of cars, so you can get the right amount of coverage.

Keeping the frost off

Small, simple car covers are great at this time of year. Frost guards and windscreen shields can cover your windscreen on cold nights, and save you the job of scraping your windscreen in the morning! If you want to go even further, a car cap will cover all of your windows and roof, and is also great for convertibles.

Whole car covers

If you want to look after your whole car’s paintwork, it’s time to look at a full car cover. There are a number of reasons you might want to do this:

  • Dust and dirt – so you don’t end up with a film of grime even when you haven’t used the car!
  • Tree sap – as you might already know, this can be a nightmare to clean.
  • Bird droppings – enough said!
  • Vandalism – a car cover provides an extra barrier that a potential thief or vandal will have to get through to get at your car.
  • The sun – direct sunlight can cause your car’s paintwork to fade, turning your nice red car pink! A car cover can also keep the car underneath cool.

Need even more protection for your car? 

Our advanced car covers go even further. They’re made of a waterproof and breathable material, keeping the rain off your car and letting condensation evaporate. This means that water won’t sit on your car and cause damage to the paint or rust exposed metal parts. They also come with their own storage bags for when you’re out driving! If you want to make sure that your car is looked after while it’s not being used, they’re hard to beat.

Fitting a car cover

Some car covers are made to fit specific models of cars, while others come in sizes like small, medium and large. When you fit a cover to your car, look for one that fits snugly and won’t flap around in the wind. That way, you’ll avoid the cover itself causing any damage to your paintwork.

Lastly, never put a cover on a dirty car! Dirt trapped between the cover and your car can cause scratches to the paint.
