Keep your Car Covered

Posted by Hugh Frame on

If you keep your car covered in Australia, you will increase its re-sale value. The Australian climate is harsh and car covers will protect your vehicle from the intense UV rays that damage paintwork and inside and outside plastic trims and, of course, hail damage. They also keep dust out from the interior of your car clean and dust free, which is especially important if you have pets or kids.

Protect Your Car from The Weather

Protecting your car from the elements is an important part of keeping it in good condition. The sun, rain, hail and snow in the high country can all damage your vehicle if not properly protected.

  • Protect From the Sun: The sun's UV rays can cause paint fading and other cosmetic issues over time. A good UV protecting car cover and a good quality wax or sealant that reflects light instead of allowing it to penetrate into the surface of your vehicle's paint job is a sensible precaution.

  • Protect From Rain: Water spots left behind after rainfall can damage clear coat finishes on cars by causing oxidation or rusting underneath the clear coat layer of paint (the colour). This is especially true if you live near salt water since salt is abrasive enough to wear away at unprotected surfaces without any help from moisture present in coastal areas.  
  • Protect from Hail Damage: Hail damage is one of the most costly natural disasters that hit Australia every year. This is an annual type of news coverage Sydney Summer 2021 Nine News - one of our many hailstorms

How To Choose a Car Cover

Choosing the right car cover is important, as it will protect your vehicle from the elements and prevent it from being damaged. Here are some of the things to consider:

  • The type of car cover you choose should be suitable for your vehicle. There are many different types of covers available, including soft cloth covers and hard-shell ones made from plastic or high resistant P.E waterproof fabrics which tend to be more durable.
  • A good cover should also be able to withstand harsh weather conditions such as hail, rain, snow and windstorms even heat waves! For example, when it gets extremely hot during summer months then make sure any new purchase has vents built into its design. This will allow the car to “breathe” so that air can circulate freely around underbodies without causing damage. A good car cover will prevent some overheating and it is especially important to allow any trapped moisture to escape.
