Covering Your Limo is a Must, Here's Why

If you own a Limousine, then you already know maintaining it isn't a walk in a park. The surface is so large it doesn't take much for it to get dirty, and it can be a pain going to the car wash before every client. Covering your Limousine when you aren't using it is the easiest way to save you time and money. Not only will you keep it looking new for your next client, but a Limo cover also prevents sun damage, dust, mildew, and debris build-up that can have a big effect on the lifetime of your vehicle.

Why It's Important to Cover Your Limo

Limousine covers are great for 2 reasons. They are very convenient, and they prolong the life of your vehicle. Let's look at some convenience factors.

  • Keep your vehicle looking the exact same as when you first cover it. No more rushed trips to the car wash before picking up a client.
  • Allow you to park your Limo at your home knowing it will stay clean. No longer requiring expensive Limo storage.
  • Enable you to store your vehicle indoors and outdoors.
  • They fit your vehicle perfectly. Saving time putting them on and taking them off.

So the convenience is obvious, a nice cover saves you time and money. Now let's look at what they do to extend the life of your vehicle.

  • The UV-treated material prevents harmful UV rays from damaging your Limousine's paint.
  • Keeps dust and debris from piling up. This keeps your vehicle clean, but also helps prevent engine and electrical problems from arising.
  • Doesn't allow water, bird droppings, or even tree sap to get on your vehicle's paint.
  • A high-quality cover will be breathable to prevent mildew build-up.

Choosing the Correct Limousine Cover

The most important thing to keep in mind when looking for a cover is your vehicle's dimensions. It doesn't matter if you have a standard or custom Limo, checking the dimensions will guarantee a perfect fit. Before we get into how to check for size, the easiest way to ensure you get the right cover is to call a representative and get their expert help. Here's the number for a CarCovers.com expert 1-800-385-3603.

If you want to figure out your dimensions alone, have no fear, this guide doesn't stop here.

How to Measure your Limo

Park your Limo in a flat parking space. Get a long tape measure and lay it on the ground from the rear bumper to the front bumper. Make sure to get an accurate measurement, as the #1 reason people get the wrong size covers is from mismeasurements.

Tip: Make sure you do not bend the tape measure or measuring tape. The measurement should not include any curves in your vehicle, you only want a total length measurement.

Once you know your measurements, write them down and check out this Limo cover sizing chart. As you can see, the covers are categorized by total length using 1-foot increments. They are designed to stretch, so don't worry if your vehicle isn't exactly the right size.

Let's say you have a 26'6" Limousine that you want to be able to store outside at your home. We would recommend that you order the 27' Deluxe Shield Limo Cover. This cover would fit your Limo perfectly snug keeping it clean even if kept outside.

Frequently Asked Questions About Limo Covers

Should I put a cover on my Limousine when it's stored in a garage?

Yes. While keeping your Limo in a garage is the best way to stop the elements from eroding your vehicle, dust and mildew are still threats to your vehicle. Covering your limo while it's in a garage will give you the confidence your limo isn't eroding at all.

How often should I clean my Limo cover?

The simple answer is, that you should clean your cover whenever it becomes dirty. Although depending on if you store your vehicle inside or outside there is a different maintenance schedule. If you keep it outside it's best to wipe down the fabric with a damp cloth once every few weeks. If you store your vehicle indoors, you don't need to wipe it down every few weeks. I would recommend checking on it monthly to make sure there aren't any surprise leaks in the garage that could cause harm to your vehicle.

Where to store the cover when I'm not using it?

All of our Limo covers come with a free storage bag. The easiest way to store the cover is to use a damp rag to wipe it down while on your vehicle, then let it dry. Then pack it up in the storage bag and keep it in a cool dry place. This will keep the cover fresh for next time.

Is there a difference between your Limo Covers?

No. All our Limo covers are the Deluxe Shield Covers. This is because limousines are expensive assets so we provide a cover that will protect your vehicle in all weather. If you are looking on other websites there is a chance you will see lower-quality covers. While they may save you a dollar today, they can easily cost you a lot more in repairs in the future.

Where to Buy Limo Covers

With an asset like a Limousine, we recommend going for a cover that is made from high-quality materials and comes with a warranty. CarCovers.com has covers to fit any size Limo, they can even make you a custom cover if your vehicle isn't standard.
