About Us

Welcome to Car Covers and Shelters,

Welcome to our business, Car Covers and Shelters. We are an Australian family-owned and operated business. We pride ourselves on our customer service and you should be confident in getting the best service possible. We are exclusively an online retailer.

We have 30 years experience assisting buyers in choosing high-end investments. As we approach the end of our middle-age we decided to assist people in solving an important little problem we had a few years ago ...we are classic car enthusiasts and we love our little MGB ... .but the problem we had when we bought 'the third car' was where to keep it?

This lead to an investigation of solar carports which in turn lead to the foundation of Car Covers and Shelter - a business offering the widest choice of car protection in Australia at the best prices!

car covers and shelter car coverWhen we decided to open Car Covers and Shelter we wanted to showcase as many fantastic products as possible which can be used to protect your valuable cars. We were also early up-takers of solar power in our own home, first with a solar hot water system and then with solar panels, back in the good old days when solar installation grants were classed as “middle-class welfare!”  We were given 66c per Kwh generated and the grants just about covered the installation costs! It was a “no-brainer” to get it installed but we had made the decision to ‘go-green’ before we knew about the wonderful offers at the time; it just made sense. solarcarportsonline shopping is here.

It also just made sense to purchase a solar carport. We had seen them in Europe and with the advent of the electric car, which we will all be driving soon, it just seemed like a “no-brainer” to spend money on a carport that would pay for itself over and over again.

We were shocked to find that no-one in Australia was offering a solar carport for car covers and shelter car coverresidential/domestic use! We tried every solar company listed in Google, then we contacted manufacturers of solar frames. It is becoming quite common for companies to supply large commercial solar carports in Australia at places of work or even local shopping centres but no-one was prepared to design and sell to the Australian residential market.

The idea of importing solar carport kits from Japan or China was also investigated but was just too hard to get them in under our Australian standards. Then “Powershade” came along and we were delighted to find that their market research and thought process was identical to our own – and so Car Covers and Shelters can now offer Australia’s first Solar Carport Kit.

We decided to build a unique business through all sorts of products available to go over your car for its protection as well as offering Australia's first residential Carport Kit and here it is! Car Covers and Shelters. If you only have an interest in Solar Panel Carports you might be better looking at our sister business solarcarportsonline - same great service and same prices but you may find the ordering system easier with our refundable 10% down rather than the form filling necessary on a retail shop site like this one.

If you have any questions regarding our unique range of garages, carports, awnings and shelters or our range of Custom made car covers, made here in Sydney, drop us an email or give us a call. We will always ensure you are aware of the wide range of choices you have at affordable prices. It's always expanding and its worth taking a look at our recently added budget range of carports and our own range of very affordable garages from cheap single garages to 3m high triple garages.
