You will have noticed that keeping your car in a garage, doesn’t mean it doesn’t need cleaning. Whilst it may be protected from the harmful components of nature, and rain, snow, sun, etc don’t leave their marks, nonetheless, there are plenty of other ways that your car can get dirty. Dust is probably the prime factor, and the most guilty one. Dust gathers everywhere, but somehow, especially on cars. This is a real nuisance because no one likes to have dusty, horrible old-looking cars, even more so, when they know that their car in reality is far from being old! However this is the impression dust manages to create, and so, car owners are always dusting down and cleaning their cars. Whilst dust gathers more prominently when cars are left out in the street, it gathers even when the car is kept indoors in a garage. So a garage is not really a fool-proof protector. In fact sometimes, the things that people store in their garages along with their cars, are old bits and bobs, which will only make the dust situation worse.
People also tend to keep their garbage cans out in the garage. When they take the garbage bags out to the cans, often they end up knocking and bumping the car on the way. This isn’t always a problem, but if something heavier was inside the bag, this could leave a small dent on the exterior of the car. Garages aren’t usually the most spacious of places either, so people often have to squeeze past the car to get to the house. This is OK, as long as they don’t have keys hanging from their belts, or other similar objects dangling out of their pockets, as this could scratch the car. This happens quite frequently, and the thing is that the guilty party very often don’t even realise what they’ve done. So the scratches and dents just gather, together with the dust, in what is supposed to be the protective environment of a garage.
The Multibond car cover was designed specifically for these sorts of cases. Made from a three-layered polypropylene fabric, Multibond is perfect for indoor use, and even the occasional outdoor use too. It will resist dirt and dust, as well as moisture and ultra-violet rays. The material of Multibond is breathable so that whilst the car is covered, it can ‘sweat’ and ‘breathe’ without getting steamed up and mouldy. Air and moisture are allowed out through the material, but not in, so the car remain protected. Being three-layered, the Multibond cover will act as a cushioning shied from any bangs, bashes, and scrapes, and will absorb the shock of it all, so that the exterior does not get scratched and dented.
Compact and easy to use, Multibond can be folded up when not in use, and will not take up much space at all. It can fit into a corner of thee trunk of your car, waiting for when it is next needed. The cover is also easy to slip on and off as there is elastic at the front and back of the cover as pickup ford f-250 covers, to make it easier for you. Multibond is inexpensive as the main things it protects against is dirt and dust, hence the cover does not need any fancy sort of treatments. For such a small fee, the car’s market value can be kept up for longer, and you will have a shiny, clean car to drive at all times!
Universal Car Cover – Why Pay More?
The market today is full of car covers. There are many different types, depending on where you live, what climate, what car you have, and how you store it. This is amazing because no matter where you are, there’s always the perfect cover for your vehicle. However there is no need to pay outrageous amounts in order to give your vehicle the protection it deserves. Once you have chosen the material with the right qualities for your car and its environment, you can simply select to get it in the universal size, saving you lots of money. No matter what cover you choose, your car will always be shielded from things like tree sap, birds droppings and dust. These three just need a barrier between them and the car, and this is what the cover does. The car will then be free of stains and thick layers of dust, and make it much easier for you as you will not have to spend hours cleaning the car.
Whether your cover will actually be waterproof, and or ultra-violet resistant, is dependent on what material you choose as a cover. Generally they all have these qualities, at varying levels though. Equipped with the protection provided by the cover, the car will not become rusty due to the rain. Nor water-marked, or peeling paint from the high levels of acid found in the rain. The colour of the paint will remain fresh and not fade from the sunlight and the car will not get to stuffy and overheated to drive. Generally covers come in three sizes; custom, semi-custom and universal. Custom is tailor-made for your particular vehicle, semi-custom is made to fit a group of cars of similar shape and size, and universal will fit on any car (trucks come a different size).
Custom, will of course work out the most expensive as it is manufactured uniquely for the car. Universal covers are the cheapest as the can be mass-produced as they will fit on to any car, big or small. The protection provided will be just as good, since at the end of the day, it is the material that has the waterproof, and uv resistant features not the size. The big advantage of buying a universal cover is that it can be used on any car. This means it can be lent out to family and friends, and you will jot have to buy a new one when you buy a new car, as it will fit that car too. You also don’t have to worry when you want to attach a roof-rack or something like that as you know it won’t be a problem. In the end you will save yourself money on the actual cover, and also will not have to keep buying replacements.
Waterproof Car Covers – Preparing Your Car For The Winter Months
When you leave your car parked outside, you are leaving it at the risk of nature, and that is not a wise decision. Nature has not be known to be to kind to cars, in fact, it positively ruins them. No matter what the weather forecast, it’s always something to the disadvantage of cars. When it rain, the paint work of the cars disintegrates due to the high levels of acid in the rain. Raindrops also leave horrible water marks all over the exterior, and with time makes the framework go rusty. Snow has pretty much the same effect as rainstorms, only worse. When it snows, the car freezes over. This can be quite a nuisance, but also a hazard as well. When the brakes freeze (together with the rest of the car), they don’t work properly, and this could be dangerous.
Even ‘simpler’ winter weather, like wind, isn’t good for the car. When the wind blow, unfortunately, it tends to sweep along with it all sorts of rubbish from the street. These get blown about and as they fly past, they very often end up scratching, and or denting vehicles. So really your car deserves to be kept warm and sheltered too. Like many others, it’s probably not feasible for you to build a garage, either economically, or space wise. However, you can get a car cover for your car, and this can be used anywhere. There are many different types of covers available on today’s market. However you’ll probably prefer to get a custom, waterproof one. Such covers will protect the car from the rain, sleet and snow, as well as many other things too. Often they are uv resistant also, which means that the car will; not damaged by the sun, as it can also have a diverse effect on the car. The material used for these covers, is more often than not, breathable. This gives the car a chance to breathe and sweat, without the it getting steamed up and mouldy whilst covered. This does not detract from the high level of waterproofing that the cover will provide. A cover will provide protection against other natural nuisances like birds droppings, tree sap and even dust. These land themselves on the exterior of the car, making awful stains that are hard to remove. They make the car look older and more worn out than it really is, decreasing it’s market value.
A custom cover will give you and your car the maximum protection as it will fit like a glove, leaving no room for anything to sneak its way in. It will also make your car look more classy, even whilst protected. You will get to choose a colour and even possibly to put a logo on the bonnet, so that you can personalise your car whilst it is covered! You may have heard that there are different types of car covers, and you’re right. There are various materials which provide different types of protection at varying levels. There are also three different sizes. What material to get is very much based on where you live, and where you will be storing your vehicle. There is more than one climate and weather condition across the globe. Companies that manufacture the covers, such as Coverking and Covercraft, appreciate this and have therefore got a selection suited to different climates. Some will be particularly waterproof, but not have such good uv protection, or vice versa. There are also all-rounder type of covers, that are call ‘all weather car covers’. These will give a good amount of shielding to all weather conditions, but not excel in any particular area.
When storing your car outdoors, you will need a lot more protection than if it were stored in a garage. Your vehicle will be exposed to a lot more outdoors and therefore needs that extra amount of protection. However, if you keep your car indoors, why pay for all that protection, if you won’t need it. Whilst you still have to protect and shield your car from dust and the like, even when kept indoors, there’s no need for you to pay for protection against snow etc. Therefore you can buy a cover that is specifically for the indoors, and it will be cheaper for you. The sizing of the covers is split into three categories; universal, semi-custom, and custom. Universal will fit onto any car, big or small (trucks are a separate size) and will protected them. The biggest advantage of this is that the cover can lent and borrowed to any friend or family member. You also don’t need to get a new one when you get a new car, and naturally, it is a lot cheaper one like this. The downside is that it will never fit any car perfectly. It will either too big and baggy, or a just fit, that may leave some parts peaking out. Therefore the protection provided is not at it’s best.
Custom covers are tailor made for you and your car. The exact shape and size is taken into account when being made, and they will even make mirror pockets. The cover will be a snug fit maximising the protection provided. Owners can elect the colour and design of the cover, including personalising it by putting a logo on the front. Such covers are very snazzy to have but are also the most expensive. A nice in between the two is the semi-custom cover. These are covers that are made to fit a group of cars that are of similar shape and size. The fit is therefore more exact than a universal cover, but not as perfect as the custom. The protection is good enough, and the price not too high. Whilst it may not look as classy as the custom, it definitely looks respectable enough.
