Submitting a warranty claim:

A warranty claim can be submitted by filling out our warranty form. CLICK HERE to submit a warranty. All information requested is required (including order number). Occasionally, at the discretion of CarCovers.com, mailing in the cover will be required.

The warranty is not a money back guarantee. If upgraded materials are available and the warranty is approved, we will offer those materials for an optional additional fee.

 No walk in warranties are allowed as we must inspect the cover and this can take time.
