A quick guide on how to select the best cover to protect your vehicle

It is hardly a secret for any driver that it is really difficult to select the most suitable interior car accessories. That is why all car owners that truly love their vehicles usually approach this process very carefully because they realize that even the most seemingly insignificant mistake might result in serious risks on the road. By contrast, much less attention is typically paid to choosing exterior accessories because a lot of car owners think that they do not perform any function other than decorative. Although it is true in certain cases, the situation is quite different when it comes to selecting a car cover. At first, it might seem that this accessory is not on the list of the most essential ones, but the real state of things turns out to be quite the opposite. Why so?

In fact, no matter how much careful you while driving and how hard you try to prevent even the smallest accidents, there are quite many things that can do real damage to your car, among which there are bad weather conditions, dirt, moist, dust, children, animals running around and scratching it, or even some people who do it deliberately. The list is endless indeed.

So, what is the best way to prevent possible damage? Buying a car cover!

You might think that one car cover is as good as another but the reality is far from that. There are so many option in materials, designs, sizes, and even colours, that it is hard to find the one that suits your car most. But don’t worry. There is a short list of factors you should bear in mind before making a purchase in order not to get disappointed afterwards.

The first thing to think about is your parking habits. Just consider where you usually leave your car. How often do you use it? It driving your hobby or do you use your vehicle every single day for many hours? The answers will help you to make the right decision. If you often use your car and park it in the street, cover it up with a lightweight outdoor car cover. Storing and folding of such a cover will be much easier and quicker. If you park in a place where children often play, an extra layer of protection is obligatory (but don’t forget that the cover will be considerably heavier and bulkier in comparison).

Climatic conditions should also be taken into account. Different fabrics can cope with different climates. In coastal areas, you will need fabrics that withstand salt air damage. In wet areas, water-resistant materials that are both able to keep the water out and to breathe are the best. In hot and dry climate, UV protection is needed.

Finally, think about the colour. In sunny regions, select light fabrics (like silver). The same rule is applied to light vehicles because light cover ones might bleed UV energy.
