Car Covers Buying Guide
Buying a cover for your car or vehicle can be confusing at times with so many options! Here are some quick guide points to help you make a decision. First, determine if you will use the cover Outdoors or Indoors.
Outdoor Car Covers
Outdoor car covers are the most popular option because they can be used both outdoors and indoors. There are many factors to consider when looking for an outdoor car cover. Primarily, you will want to focus on a high quality weather resistant fabric that is breathable, UV resistance, fits well, is easy to secure to prevent being blown off in high winds, and a great quality warranty.
CarCovers.com has developed the Platinum Shield car cover with all these factors in mind, which is why it is one of the top selling car covers on the market for outdoor use.

Indoor Car Covers
Indoor car covers are popular amongst those looking to keep their vehicles showroom shiney. The main benefit with an indoor only car cover is you can get super premium, ultra soft fabrics that are simply not available for outdoor use.
CarCovers.com has developed the black Satin Shield car cover to be luxuriously soft and keeping your vehicle showroom ready.

When buying a car cover, consider the following factors:
Cover Material: Car covers come in a variety of materials such as polyester, polypropylene, and satin stretch type fabrics. Each material offers different levels of protection and durability. A thick, high quality polyester cover with a UV coating can be an optimal choice for lightweight yet durable outdoor protection. Be aware not all car cover materials are made equal. Using a low grade, cheaper cover you will see reduced protection benefits quicker.
At CarCovers.com we only use the highest quality fabrics that have been tested and proven to hold up over long periods of time in the most extreme environments.
Climate: Consider the climate in your area. If you live in an area with high rainfall or snowfall, a high quality weatherproof and breathable cover is recommended. If you live in a hot and sunny area, a UV-resistant cover is a good choice. CarCovers.com Platinum Shield car cover is our top recommended cover for outdoor use because it is both weatherproof and UV resistant.
Car Cover Size: When it comes to size, you want to ensure you have a cover that fits your vehicle. An oversized cover can actually be bad for your vehicle. Lots of excess material can cause scratches from flapping material. Excess material is often a core issue in buying cheap universal covers as they only come in a few sizes with large sizing gaps. The best option is to buy from a website that guarantees the fit to your specific vehicle. At CarCovers.com, we have a guaranteed fit or your money back. Additionally, we recommend buying our patented Gust Strap Wind Straps. These straps ensure your car cover stays on during storms and high wind.
Car Cover Features: Some covers come with additional features such as reinforced grommets, a cable and lock for anti-theft, wind straps and more.
Brand reputation: Research the brand and read customer reviews to ensure the cover is of good quality and has a good reputation. CarCovers.com has over 115,000 5 star reviews and well over half a million loyal customers. You can read our Car Cover reviews here
Warranty: Look for a cover with a long or even lifetime warranty, as it provides protection against any manufacturer defects. At CarCovers.com, we have multiple options that offer long warranties. Our Platinum Shield car cover has a limited lifetime warranty!
By considering these factors, you can select a car cover that will provide the best protection for your vehicle.

You won’t always be able to find indoor parking for your vehicles, but you will always want to protect them. Car covers are the smart solution. Whether used as an emergency backup or an everyday item, the benefits of utilizing a quality car cover is hard to exaggerate. The lifespan of your vehicle can be enhanced both indoors and outdoors by using a car cover, and using one can protect your vehicle from damage ranging from dust particle scratches to blunt force impact. When made with weatherproof materials, these covers can keep a vehicle preserved incredibly well—anywhere. A customized car cover is a crucial piece of protection when you want to keep your vehicle safe.
At CarCovers.com, protecting your vehicle is our number one priority. That’s why we stock merchandise designed to withstand harsh outdoor conditions. Our more durable and advanced covers are made from a unique layering of protective materials to ensure your vehicle is safe from most outdoor elements, including things that may cause minor physical damage.
Garages and overhangs are one way to ensure that your vehicle remains safe and protected; however, you may live in an area where you must park on the street or in a driveway. In these cases, car covers are the most effective way to keep your automobile safe from the elements no matter where you end up having to park it.
Car covers are not only for those who need to park outside. Whether you park in your own personal garage or use a shared parking garage, your beautiful paint job is at risk from dust, dirt, and debris as well as from people or things scratching it. By using a custom car cover, you are safeguarding your investment and avoiding having to repair unnecessary damage later on.
If you regularly park outside at your place of residence, use an outdoor parking lot at the office, or you are leaving your vehicle outside for a certain amount of time, the following are things you will be able to protect your vehicle from by using a car cover:
- Snow and hail
- Rain and other water
- Dirt and dust
- Birds and other wildlife
- Falling tree debris
- Storms and wind damage
- And much more!
You invested a lot into your vehicle, and that is something worth protecting. A vehicle’s exterior is a common cause for quick devaluation. Did you know that ultraviolet (UV) rays not only will give you a sunburn, but they also oxidize and fade the paint on your vehicle? Exposure to the sun quickly ages the exterior of a vehicle and makes it look older than it should. And watch out for that wildlife! Birds, squirrels, and feral cats, among other things can cause unwanted damage to your vehicle’s exterior—but it is far less likely with a car cover on.
Quality car covers diminish all of these risks efficiently and at a lower relative cost as compared to what you would be losing in vehicle value.
Are Your Covers Waterproof?
This is a common customer question we get, so it deserves some explanation. Some sellers will claim to offer 100% water-resistant or even waterproof car covers to protect against rain or any other sort of precipitation. While this might seem like a benefit and a unique selling point, waterproof car covers can actually cause more damage than they prevent. By clinging tight to the body of the car, waterproof covers prevent moisture from escaping the car. As the moisture builds under the cover, the car becomes the perfect environment for mold, rust, or other oxidation. In an ideal scenario, a car has space to breathe, meaning a waterproof cover is not the best way to protect your vehicle. The question then becomes: does a cover need to be 100% waterproof? In most scenarios, we find a breathable cover that is a close fit to your car is a better option. If you’re concerned about this issue, we’ve written about it more extensively here.
