California Car Cover Co. Custom-Fit Car Covers Warranty Program (see other product warranties on their specific product page on this website).
Each California Car Cover is backed up a multi-year warranty to ensure that your car cover is free from defects and provides the best in protection and performance. The warranty program offers repairs and replacements to the California Car Cover for 2-6 years from the original purchase date. Warranty periods vary by material, so let us know if you have any question about warranty coverage or review details about each material in our catalog or online.
What Does the Warranty Cover?
If your California Car Cover tears or rips do not throw it away without contacting us first! The California Car Cover warranty covers wear and tear to the car cover under normal usage. We are here to assist you if the elastic loses its tightness, seams split, stitching comes undone, or if there is UV damage to the material. If your dog uses your California Car Cover as a chew toy or you snag the car cover on a sharp edge, we likely cannot cover that under warranty, but we will do our best to assist you with a repair.
How Do I Know If My California Car Cover is Still Under Warranty?
If you cannot locate your receipt, don't worry! We keep car cover information on file for the length of your warranty. Please give us a call and one of our Customer Service Associates can review your order history. Before calling, please have your car cover barcode/serial tag information ready. The serial tag is located along the front elastic hem of the car cover on the driver’s side. Having this information available during the phone call will reduce call time and expedite the return and inspection process. You can even email us a photo of the tag to check for warranty status.
How Do I File A Warranty Claim?
Send our Customer Service team an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800-423-5525 x3. One of our associates will request some order information from you and will also need some details about what is happening to your car cover. Photos are always useful. The associate will also need information from the barcode sticker that is attached to the front hem of the California Car Cover.
Once the Customer Service Associate has located your order details, they will ask for the cover to be sent back to our processing center for inspection and repair. Simply send the cover back to us via UPS or USPS and make sure the provided Return Authorization (RA) # is labeled on the box. Once inspected at the processing center, our Customer Service Associate will contact you whether the car cover is eligible for repair, replacement or neither.
Does My Replacement Cover Have a New Warranty?
If we receive your old California Car Cover and determine that it is better to replace the old car cover under warranty than repair it, we will send a new California Car Cover to you in exchange. This is a new car cover, but it does not receive a new warranty.
For example, a Superweave car cover it comes with a 4-year warranty from California Car Cover. If that car cover fails after 3 years and we provide you with a replacement cover that new cover has 1 year of warranty coverage left on it.
Are Warranty Claims Ever Denied?
Unfortunately, we occasionally have to deny a warranty claim. If the car cover shows evidence of negligence or misuse, animal damage or the warranty coverage time period has lapsed, are some of the reasons that claims are denied. If you are notified about a car cover being ineligible for a warranty repair or replacement, you can discuss the next steps with one of our Customer Service Associates.
