Benefits of Using a Vehicle Cover
Weather Conditions - You don't need to be a meteorologist to know that harsh weather conditions can cause a number of problems with a vehicle's paintwork. Seemingly harmless light rain showers can allow water to find it's way into chips and blemishes in the paint work, giving the dreaded rust a foothold.
Using one of our quality weather resistant car covers will go a long way in helping to prevent this. A breathable cover is important as it allows air to pass between the cover and the surface of your vehicle. This prevents any atmospheric moisture building up on the surface of the vehicle which can be trapped under the cover for a prolonged period of time, leading to corrosion or rusting.
UV Sunlight Protection - The use of a good car cover will protect your vehicle from the damaging effects of ultraviolet light which can cause the paintwork to fade over time.
Dust Protection - The paint work on your vehicle is less than 2mm thick and whether your car is parked outside or in a garage, dust can be a real problem. Settled dust particles are highly abrasive to car paintwork. This can cause fine scratches in the paint, dulling down the finish and affecting the value of your pride and joy.
Natural Pollutants and Hazards - Natural hazards such as trees and birds appear harmless but can cause serious damage to your vehicle. Our feathered friends have a near perfect aim leaving droppings on your car. These droppings can be acidic resulting in stains and permanent paint marks if not removed quickly.
The use of a good quality car cover will help keep your vehicle cool in direct sunlight and protect it from falling objects such as twigs, nuts and berries. One of the biggest problems caused by parking under trees is tree sap, which sticks to the paint surface and gets baked into the paintwork by the sun, making it very difficult to remove.
Theft Protection - Although a car cover may seem like a thin layer of fabric it can act as a deterrent to any potential car thieves, As time is crucial in not getting caught, car thieves will often walk passed a covered car rather than taking additional time to remove the cover.
