Car covers are great all year round whether you store your vehicle outdoors or inside. In the first instance they offer protection against UV rays, snow, rain, and the wind too. Indoors they can provide a shield against moisture and dust. Any of these can cause damage to the paintwork and metallic components.
The most important thing to keep in mind when you cover a car, whether it is for the short or long term, is that the vehicle needs to be dry. The last thing you want is to use covers on wet or damp vehicles because they trap moisture underneath them and heighten the deterioration. This is exactly what you don’t want.
Before putting the cover on a car you should dry it off carefully. When you do this remember you need to use a soft cloth so as not to scratch the paintwork. Keep in mind there may be tiny particles of grit and dirt on the body of the vehicle as well. These need to be cleaned off with care. You want it to be clean, pristine and completely dry when the cover goes on.
Another thing to keep in mind is that every vehicle is different in terms of its shape and dimensions. This means you need to get the right car covers as a result. You’ll want a good fit to ensure that every part of the bodywork is protected. Remember you don’t want the fit to be too tight when it is put on as this leaves no breathing space.
