Whether you put your car in storage, park it in a garage, or leave it outside, you can never have enough extra protection. Your goal should be to ensure the vehicle will be in the same condition next time you come to use it. Car covers are a good option. However, you need to make sure you use them correctly. It is also important to store them properly. If you don’t, or use them incorrectly, you can damage the vehicle.
The key to using the covers properly is to ensure you unfurl them carefully and secure them in place. What you need to look out for is scratching the paintwork when you put the cover on or take it off. A good tip here is to make sure the vehicle is clean before you cover it.
Storing the cover correctly is just as important as using it properly. If you simply drag it off and throw it in a pile, you could damage it. Rips would compromise the amount of protection the cover offers. Leaving it in a pile could also ruin the shape, meaning it won’t fit the car properly in the future. It is better to fold it up carefully until you need it again. Make sure you leave it somewhere dry.
The most vital part of storing the cover is ensuring it will dry. If you used it outside, it could have been in the rain or have morning dew or condensation on it. The last thing you want to do is ball up a wet cover because it could cause mould and mildew. Instead, what you should do is hang it up to dry properly.
