Some basic advice on buying a car cover
So now you are looking to buy a cover, either for indoor or outdoor use or both, what are your options?
You should initially take into consideration the environment in which the car and cover is going to sit. If its outside in summer or in a hot climate then you want something reflective. If its in a nice warm garage then something fleecy and shape hugging may be what you want. If its going to be used in the depths of Winter then something heavy duty, waterproof and breathable will be needed.
More and more customers are covering their cars now for security reasons. With the huge rise in prices on classic cars now and the ability to easily drive away a key less modern car, old skool tech is back! Covering your car up so its out of site from passers by, opportunists, google maps and the like is a good idea. Fitting an integrated alarm to the cover is also a good idea, this will warn you if it's removed from the car and scare off anyone close by. It will certainly wake you up before anyone even gets to the car itself.
Locking kits are also a good idea, but the alarm is better.
