Why a protective cover?

In this guide, we explain the factors to consider when choosing the protective cover that suits your needs .

Protecting your car under a cover is essential to prevent the following factors:

Accidental damage

Whether your car is parked outside or inside in a private location or not, accidental scratch damage can happen at any time to yourself, other people or pets. The protective cover helps prevent, limit and even prevent certain damage.

Obstruction of the curious

The curious will not approach your car. They will just try to guess what is underneath the cover.

Exterior elements

Indoors, in addition to protection against scratches, the car body remains protected from dust and your vehicle thus remains clean. Outside, the protective cover protects against the weather, rain, wind, hail, dust, and any dirt that could be thrown onto your car. In addition, the vehicle remains protected from discoloration of the bodywork by the sun's UV rays .

The price not to pay

It is better to get a good protective cover that is easy to use, instead of having to incur the cost of repairing the body of your car.

Protecting your car with a car cover keeps it in excellent condition, prevents damage and saves you money.
