3 Advantages Of Investing In A Car Cover Even If You Have A Garage

by Tracy Kennedy

If you own a classic car or a car that you care a lot about, you will spend a lot of time doing things to protect that vehicle and maintain its pristine condition. One thing many owners do is invest in a good car cover for their vehicle. These covers can be made to it over the type of car that you have. For example, if you have a Corvette, you can get a Corvette car cover that will fit all of the curves and angles of the vehicle well. You may assume you don't need a car cover if you have a garage, but actually you do. Here is a look at why that is the case. 

A car cover can protect your car if you are doing work in the garage. 

There are all kinds of things you probably do in your garage that could put your car at risk. Using a car cover to protect your vehicle's finish while it is stored in the garage is just good practice. A few processes that you will want to protect your car in the garage from being exposed to include the following: 

  • dust resulting from a sanding project 
  • spray oil and grease while working on machinery 
  • spray paint and splatter if you are painting something 
  • sparks emitting from a welder 

You can use the car cover to protect your car when you are traveling. 

When you take your car on a road trip or even a day trip, you are leaving your vehicle vulnerable every time you get out and leave it parked in the open. Having a car cover when you park at stores for long periods or stay in a hotel overnight will be a super useful thing. You can pull the cover out, slip it over your ride when it is not in use, and rest peacefully knowing you have done what you can to protect your prized vehicle. 

The car cover can be a nice layer of security. 

Classic cars and cars that have a high resale value may not be vehicles you want just everyone to see that you have. These cars can be prone to theft. Therefore, keeping a high-dollar car covered is a good idea even if you do have a garage. Anyone peeking in or passing by will not be able to see your shiny ride parked in the garage if it is covered.
