Buying a car cover is a smart idea to protect your investment, but with so many to choose from, how do you choose the best car covers? By identifying where, when, and how your car is going to be stored, you can narrow down the search to find the custom car cover that will best suit your needs.
- Where Will the Car Be Stored?
Will the car be kept indoors in a garage or outdoors on the driveway? Indoor car covers are not built to stand up to tough weather conditions. On the other hand, if your car is to be stored indoors, an outdoor cover may be more protection than you need. Also consider the overall climate; even the best outdoor car covers for the beach may be inadequate for the snowy mountains.
- How Long Will the Car Be Stored?
If you drive the car frequently, you'll want a lightweight cover that's easy to fold up and store away, but if it's not frequently driven, you'll want some extra padding and protection from dust.
- When Will the Car Be in Storage?
During what seasons will your car be in storage? If your car is stored outside, what weather conditions will it be exposed to? Outdoor car cover recommendations include covers that can withstand heat, cold, rain, snow, hail, and UV radiation.
- What Features Should You Look For?
- Soft interior lining that will not scratch the paint.
- Resistance to mold and mildew. These destructive fungi can do a number on your car cover.
- Breathable fabric. This is important to prevent condensation buildup. Cotton car covers are a good choice for indoor storage.
