Car covers have evolved in recent years and are now made of technological advanced materials and are available to specifically fit each model of car.
All cars need to be looked after and sheltered from the elements and damage but of course, the more expensive the car, the greater the emphasis is on keeping it under cover and protected. There are a huge number of houses that do not have a garage or a driveway. Cars then have to be parked on streets where rain, dirt and the risk of damage is extremely high. Most outdoor covers are 100% waterproof and made of a lightweight breathable material making them very easy to quickly put on to a vehicle.
Car covers are mainly associated with the protection of cars when they are outside. Cars stored inside are still in need of protection and now special indoor covers are available manufactured from a soft breathable material that is designed to protect vehicles from dust, bumps and knocks, and scrapes and scratches. These are of particular use should a car be going into storage for a length of time. Even if just covered in a domestic garage, a cover can protect against dust, dirt and grime and especially scrapes and scratches that all too often occur. Half covers are very useful where you only need the roof of your vehicle protecting against garages with leaking roofs or to protect your
vehicle from frost or ultraviolet rays in summer.
Living by the sea is a huge draw for many people, the views and fresh air. It is not such an idyllic situation for cars. Airborne sea salt is highly corrosive both on outer paintwork and inside the body of a car. Salt corrosion can result in nuts and bolts and even fuel injector pipes corroding. Well fitted car covers can eliminate this.
Buying the correct cover for your car is important to get the most protection. There are now covers available to fit most makes and models of cars. For example, should you have a Porsche there are Porsche car covers available including Porsche Boxster car covers. Should here not be a cover suitable for a particular model of car there are companies that can manufacturer bespoke car covers individually hand made to order. It may be that a cover is required for a very specific reason too which would require a bespoke cover to be produced.
