If we are using our car every day or often, we don’t normally cover our car with a car cover. It would be troublesome to put on the car cover every evening and then to take off every morning when we need to use the car. Anyway, not many of us will do it but there are exceptions. Our car will only need a car cover if it is not being used for a period of time such as when we go on a holiday.
When our car is not in use regularly, it will get dusty or dirty if it is parked in the open. Our car could get dirty with dust, rain, leaves, or even birds’ dropping. Even cars parked in garage would get dusty when not used for a long time. Car covers are removable and are designed to fit our cars to protect our cars from dust, dirt, and etc.
Car covers are made from different types of good quality materials varying in thickness. One of the common materials used is the PVC type of material that is waterproof, heavier, and thicker. Some car covers are designed with extra thick paddings to help protect the car from dents, or scratches.
There are the general car covers designed to fit many different brands or models of cars. General car covers are often much cheaper compared to custom made car covers such as custom car covers for Ford cars. The custom made car covers will take into consideration the exact shape and form of the vehicle and will fit the car perfectly allowing special spaces for the side mirrors and a rear spoiler if there is one.
Custom made car covers are more costly than those general car covers and they are mostly made for the more expensive cars, and for car owners who are willing to pay for custom car covers for their car. Custom made car covers are made of better and higher quality materials and they are usually padded in certain places for extra protection from dents, etc.
Not many car owners will invest in custom made car covers but many car owners may invest in custom car sun shade. Sun shades are used to protect our car from the harmful UV rays and some sun shades are equipped with insulation to help keep our car cool and fresh. When we use a sun shade, the steering wheel will not be hot and the leather car seats will not burn us when we sit on them. A car that is parked for a few hours under the hot sun is like a heated oven. There is a need to open the car doors or wind down the glass window for the hot air to escape before we could get into the car.
