Why is it that everyone rants and raves about custom car covers? What is it about them that makes them so special?Is it worth investing in one?
These are very likely the questions that are going through your mind when you embark along the task of buying a cover for your car. So, what is the answer?
First let me explain to you what the other choices are, and then why custom are better. You can either get universal, semi custom or custom covers. Universal will fit any car, big or small. Semi-custom are made for a selection of vehicles that are of similar shape and size. Custom, is made for you and your car.
Universal covers are the cheapest of the range. However they cannot provide the same type of protection as the others as the cover wasn’t made with you car in mind. That is to say, the cover can sometimes be too big, or slightly to small, so that not all of the car is covered, and bits maybe peaking out.
Semi-custom provide better protection as naturally, it has a better fit. Nonetheless, there will often still be a little room inside the covers, and this leaves an opening for things like dust etc to creep in, cover not withstanding.
On the other hand, a custom cover will fit the car 100%, and will be a snug, cosy fit, thereby providing you with the ultimate protection possible. There is no chance of any dust, rain, or other unwanted things, from reaching your car, and spoiling it. If you order a custom, you will get a cover that has taken into account your mirrors, aerial etc. and made pockets for them. You will also be more shielded, and cushioned from knocks and scratches, and the material is not baggy.
You will be able to select the material, as well as the colour. Very often, you will even be given the choice to personalise the cover by putting a logo of your choice on the front. This gives your car a more upper classy, snazzy look, even whilst being protected from nature’s harsh elements.
A custom cover will also prevent snooping individuals from checking out and breaking into your car at night. There is no room for them to take a ‘quick peek’, and therefore they can’t know if it’s worth the risk, and will leave your car. Whereas a universal, and semi-custom cover, there could still check out if they wanted to. So having a custom is safety feature too!
Then of course, as with everything that is tailor-made, the quality is better. Since they are making it with a specific customer in mind, it is not just off the machine. More care and attention is given whilst making it, making it of superior quality.
Although it may seem more expensive at the outlet, over time you will find you have saved yourself the money of replacements, extra cleaning etc. It is certainly a worthwhile investment.
