What is the difference between a universal fit and a custom-fit cover?
A universal fit cover (also called sem-custom fit), accommodates a variety of vehicles within a certain size and shape group. This type of cover offers a general or "casual" fit and is NOT a perfectly tailored cover like a Custom-Fit cover is. Universal covers are great for sharing between vehicles, whereas a custom-fit cover will only fit 1 specific vehicle. Mirror pockets and antenna pockets are not included with a universal-fit cover. The best universal cover on the market today the WeatherGuard Extreme Cover. It is 100% waterproof and 100% UV resistant and provides superior protection to outdoor weather.
Do you have a waterproof cover?
The best car cover on the market today for providing 100% waterproof capabilities, is the WeatherGuard Extreme. This cover is a semi-custom fit, heavy-duty 7 layer cover that is comprised of 5 layers of polypropylene, and 1 layer each of micro-porous film and fleece inner lining. This cover is extremely smooth to the touch and is the best car cover for protection against extreme rain and water. In addition to being 100% Waterproof, the WeatherGuard Extreme is also 100% UV resistant, has a soft fleece inner lining that provides a scratch-proof peace of mind, is lightweight and easy to install, and carries a lifetime warranty! It also includes a free storage bag, cable-lock kit, and antenna patch. Starting at only $174.95, it’s the best value car cover on the market today.
Which car cover is best for me?
Car covers are made using all different types of fabrics. Some fabrics are suited for outdoor, some for indoor, and some cover fabrics are good for both indoor and outdoor. Each car cover on our website has a complete product description, customer reviews, fabric chart, and some have product videos. This information is available in the tabbed browsing area of the individual product pages.
Are there pockets for the mirrors?
Mirror pockets come standard on nearly all custom fit covers, with the exception of certain antique vehicles. Semi-Custom fit car covers do not have mirror pockets.
What's the difference between an indoor and outdoor car cover?
Car covers offer many protection solutions for both indoor and outdoor situations. An indoor car cover protects your vehicle from dust and dirt while in your garage or in long term storage. Many of our indoor car covers also protect from common dings and dents that are common to the hustle and bustle of garages (bikes, toys, and kids). Indoor car covers are not intended to be used outside. An outdoor car cover offers various degrees of weather protection from dust, dirt, UV rays, rain, snow, and even light hail. There are over 20 different fabrics to choose from, and each one performs slightly differently. Each car cover on our website has a full description of the fabric, its uses, and comparison with other fabrics.
Do these car covers breath?
Yes. Our line of Covercraft and Coverking car covers are highly breathable, of premium quality, and will never cause moisture to become trapped underneath your cover.
Can a cover help prevent my vehicle from being stolen?
Yes, it certainly can! If you live in an area prone to crime or auto theft, a car cover can act as the perfect theft deterrent. Typically most thiefs are not going to take the extra time and steps necessary to remove the cover. This is especially true if you are using the optional cable lock kit for your car cover. Using a car cover with the lock kit will encourage the thief to choose another vehicle. The cover not only hides the car, but keeps prying eyes from seeing what's inside. The car cover is an all-around good choice for limiting a car break-in or complete auto theft.
Are there ties to hold the cover down?
Along with your car cover purchase, we recommend buying the optional cable lock kit or gust guard kit. Depending on your situation, one might suit you better then the other. Both of the products will help keep your car cover secured to your vehicle. If you live in a windy or breezy area, we generally recommend the gust guard over the cable lock kit.
Which is best for ding and dent protection?
The best car covers for ding and dent production are multi-layer covers. In addition to the following list of our recommendations, you can also visit the Fabric Comparison Chart for more information. Outdoor Covers: Covercraft Evolution (Technalon) Covercraft Noah and Coverking Coverbond 4. Indoor Covers: Dustop or Form-Fit

My wife is about 5 feet tall and wants a cover for her car. What fabrics would you suggest?
This is a very common question. The first thing to note is that lighter is not necessarily better. A single layer cover, such as the Weathershield HP or Reflectect, can be difficult to use in any kind of breeze, however a heavy cover can also be difficult for a person of small stature to handle. Bulky covers can be difficult to handle and store. Fabrics that weigh between 4 and 7 ounces per square yard are considered ideal, and most of our fabrics fall within that range. Because every situation is different, we recommend calling one of our car cover experts to help choose the exact right cover you.
Will a car cover scratch my car?
No. We use only the finest materials in the making of our car covers and none of our car cover fabrics will scratch your vehicle. However, it is important that the car cover is used properly, that is, put on a clean vehicle. When car covers are installed over top of dirty cars, the existing dirt can rub against the paint, causing fine lines in the finish. We always recommend a quick rinse or dusting prior to installing a car cover.
How do I accommodate my antenna with my car cover?
Each cover order includes a two-piece, non-scratch, plastic grommet for your convenience. For customers who do not want to remove (or can't remove) their antenna, the grommet will solve the problem of accommodating your antenna. Here's how you install the two-piece antenna grommet on your cover: 1. Remove your antenna, if possible. 2. Cover the vehicle with your cover. 3. Mark the cover (with chalk or something that washes off) at the antenna location. 4. Snap the two-piece grommet onto your cover from each side at the location you marked. 5. Use a knife to make a cut in the fabric inside the grommet. 6. Install antenna. The plastic grommet will hold the fabric tight and keep the hole from enlarging or ripping. When installing your cover after the grommet is installed, start by placing your antenna inside the grommet, then fold the sides over the mirror pockets, followed by securing the front and rear of the cover to your vehicle. To remove your cover, just reverse the process.
How do I install my new car cover?
In general, you should always put the mirror pockets on first, and cover the front and rear bumpers last. If you have an older car, or a cover without mirror pockets, you should cover the roof and windows first, and then the front and rear of the car.
How do I clean my car cover?
The generic cleaning instructions noted below are intended for use with all car covers, but you should refer to the instruction sheet enclosed with the car cover for any fabric specific care instructions. Car cover fabric performance can be severely affected by dirt that builds up on and within the material. It can cause the windshield and paint to become dirty and “fogged” as well as create “wicking” where it actually helps pull water through the fabric, nullifying any water resistant properties the fabric may have had. Cleaning your cover will help to keep your vehicle clean and to increase the service life of the cover. NEVER...Clean a car cover in a washer with a center agitator (except WeatherShield fabric covers) NEVER...Use fabric softener NEVER...Dry a non-woven or specialty type cover in a dryer (WeatherShield & Form-Fit can be dried in a dryer with regular heat; polycotton and flannel can be dried on low heat.) 1. Using a large commercial washer without agitator, wash the cover using 1/4 cup of Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner (some WeatherShield covers are compact enough to be washed in a normal size washer). Put the cover in the washer and pour the cleaner in the tub after it’s filled with warm water or pour it directly in the machine (some wall mounted commercial units), then put in the cover and start the machine . 2. Rinse the cover twice (2X) to remove all the cleaner. 3. Air dry (unless it’s one of the covers noted above that can be dried in a dryer with regular or low heat). A cover may also be cleaned by turning it inside-out on the vehicle. 1. Mix one ounce Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner per quart of warm water. 2. Spray or sponge onto cover. 3. Rinse with plain water (until no suds) and allow to air dry.
Can I put a wet cover on a vehicle?
Yes! Since all of our custom-fit fabrics are breathable, there is no fear of moisture or vapors being trapped under the cover fabric and therefore, a wet car, or wet car cover, will not harm your vehicle in any way. In fact, this is actually the best way to dry your car cover if it is wet. As the weather drys out, the moisture on your vehicle will evaporate right through the cover. Always make sure you are using your car cover on a clean vehicle. Please note that in very cold weather, it is possible that a wet cover could freeze to your car. Please take precautions as your cover could tear or rip when taking it off if it is frozen. This damage is not covered by the cover's warranty.
How often should I wash my cover?
There is no magic number since it depends on where you live and how you use the cover. Don't be afraid to wash a car cover! Dirt particles can compromise the effectiveness of the water resistance of the fabric. Be sure to follow the washing instructions for your cover.
What is the best way to fold a cover when taking it off the vehicle?
The easiest way to fold your car cover is the way we picture it in our instruction sheets that come with your car cover. Simply fold each side up onto the roof and refold it as necessary so the material ends up about 2 feet wide. Then, starting at the front of the vehicle, fold the cover towards the back in increments of about 3 feet. This way you don't drag the cover over the vehicles surface, and it's easy to reverse the process for installation.
Any suggestions on how to keep my vehicle cooler when I use a car cover?
Other than parking in the shade, because most of our better fabrics will protect against bird droppings and tree sap, the best thing to do is to lower your side windows about two inches. Ambient temperature builds inside enclosed spaces, and if you open the windows slightly, you'll allow air to circulate, just like it circulates under the cover. Some of our fabrics offer more heat insulation than others, simply because they are multi-layered and are more effective at keeping heat away from the vehicle surface, but any cover will help reduce the vehicle temperature on a hot day. Our top recommendations for protecting my UV are the Sunbrella, Evolution, Reflectect, and Autobody Armor.
Will treating my car cover with Scotchguard make it more water resistant?
In almost every instance, a quality Coverking or Covercraft car cover fabric has been treated with some sort of DWR (durable water repellency) treatment during it's manufacturing process. Because every car cover fabric is different, some fabrics are better suited for water repellency then others. The Weathershield HP, HD, and Noah car covers are among the top choices for water resistance. If your cover is wearing out, (i.e. you can hold the fabric up to light and see small open areas between the yarns) no treatment will increase the fabric's water resistance. Adding additional treatments will not help and aren't worth the cost. Instead, purchase a quality cover from the beginning. If your cover is prematurely wearing out, call our warranty department to discuss your options.
Can I use use my cover in a windy area?
Like any fabric, a car cover is also susceptible to the wind. Heavier covers are better suited for windy areas and are more likely to stay on the car better. In some environments, additional tie downs, like the gust gaurd are recommended. Storm and wind damage is not covered by warranty service. Damaged covers can usually be repaired by Covercraft for a nominal fee.
What about my hot exhaust pipes?
We do not recommend putting covers over hot exhaust pipes. Please allow the exhaust pipes to cool down completely before installing your cover. If the exhaust has not sufficiently cooled, you may damage the cover and/or create a fire hazard. Car Cover World is not responsible for this kind of damage and this will not be covered under your manufacturer's warrantly.
Can I use my cover on a towed vehicle?
No. We do not recommend using a cover on a towed vehicle or a vehicle on an open trailer. In addition to the flapping of the cover on the vehicle's paint finish, road dirt and debris may become trapped between the cover and the finish, causing damage to your paint.
What happens if a car cover damages my car?
Usage of car covers is at the sole risk and discretion of the user. Car Cover World is not responsible for any damage resulting from the use or misuse of a car cover. Covercraft and Coverking brand car covers are all breathable fabrics, however the Weatherguard Extreme waterproof car cover is not a breathable cover. This can cause moisture underneath the cover to become trapped if the cover is not removed on a regular basis to allow the car and cover to "air out". Please exercise caution when using the WeatherGuard Extreme car cover.
