Caring for your Premium Car Cover.

Fitting and looking after your CoversShop Premium Outdoor Car Cover.

Firstly , fitting the cover to your car:

  • You may have noticed the cover is packed in its bag inside out. This is done on purpose to make fitting easier.
  • Take the cover out of its bag and sort out the front from the back. This should be quite straight forward as there is a label that says “front”. Don't unroll the cover yet; if you can't see it, then you have the back.
  • Put the cover on the roof of your car, pointing in the right direction, then unroll it. Once unrolled, if the sides haven't dropped down, pull them down and secure the elasticated hem under your bumpers.
  • The straps are designed so that you don't have to try and throw them under your car. They can be placed on the ground and then roll your car over them and then plug into the buckles on the cover.

To pack the cover back into its bag, simply reverse this procedure by folding the cover inwards first, and then rolling up.

To clean your cover:

  • Use warm soapy water (washing up liquid is fine), and sponge the cover down. Probably easiest done while in place on your car.
  • Don't put it in a washing machine! The various proofing treatments will not withstand this.
  • If any oil or grease gets on the cover, a degreaser such as Gunk can be used.
  • It is best not to cover a dirty car, but if any dirt does get on the underside of the cover, again sponge it off with warm soapy water. Also, if your car is dirty, beware of the cover rubbing the dirt against your paintwork.

Due to the nature of how the covers are manufactured, the door zip positions may not be exact. Although even if not exact they are still perfectly usable by just lifting the cover slightly.

Warnings:

  • Do not cover a car that has been recently resprayed where the paint was not oven baked. You need to allow three months for the full curing process and to make sure the cover does interfere with this process. Likely problems could be marbling or blooming of the paintwork if this is not followed. This is not caused by the cover but is caused by interference with the complete evaporation of the solvents used in the painting process.
  • Beware of any sharp points. Unless covered with an old glove or something similar, they are likely to tear the cover.
