Why You Should Buy A Car Cover If Your Car Is Parked Outdoors

Jan 21, 2008
If you are the type of person who likes nice things and makes every attempt to take care of your nice things then consider your nicest things for a moment, your home or your car, maybe some jewelry? These are all things that have to be taken care of in order for you to get the most out of your hefty investment. Where do you park your car? Well, it could be in a parking lot, a driveway, a street, or a garage. If you keep your car covered regardless of where it is, it will look much nicer for a long time. If you are fortunate enough to park in a garage that is great but garages are full of dust and the dust will require that you wash your car more often resulting in a more rapidly aging coat. Dust damages your car even before you might get a chance to wash it. The particles in dust actually scratch a car and if wiped off, damage it even more. So, even cars that are parked in a garage should be covered.

If you have to park your car in one of these other spots that are mentioned above then there is no question that you must invest in a car cover. Think about it for a second, people cover their gas BBQ grills, their patio furniture, and their bikes so why wouldn't someone cover their car that costs a whole lot more? If your car is not covered it is subject to rain, hail, intense sunshine, snow, and ice. It is also vulnerable to birds flying overhead and kids driving by it on their bikes. There are many different types of car covers depending on your needs and your needs will vary according to what climate that you live in. Someone in Michigan will be fighting elements that are different from someone in Arizona but they are still fighting some type of element. One of the worst enemies is the sun which can not only dull and damage your exterior coat on your car but also the interior will begin to fade as well. If your car has leather or vinyl interior you can be assured that it won't be long before that starts to crack and peel from the sun.

Do yourself a favor and at least do a little research on car covers and the importance of covering your car. See what is available and the various prices that you will soon discover that the cost of the car cover will never exceed the cost of the repair job that lies in your future if you continue to leave your car uncovered. One piece of advice is to avoid waterproof car covers because any moisture that gets up under the cover is not able to evaporate which can cause rust damage eventually. It is best to stick with water repellant car covers instead so that the air has a chance to circulate and then the water will have an opportunity to evaporate.
