Will a Car Cover Scratch My Car?

One of the most common concerns when shopping for a car cover is whether or not the cover itself will scratch the paint job. This is absolutely a possibility, IF you don't cover your car properly. A well-fitted, quality cover should never hurt your car, it should protect it. A California Car Cover is guaranteed to never scratch or mark your finish, but there are still a few things to keep in mind.

The number one scratch culprit is dust on your car prior to it being covered. We recommend always placing a car cover on a clean vehicle. Quickly dusting off your vehicle with a California Car Duster is an easy way to get your ride clean before placing the cover on and avoid any scratching.

Once you've dusted your vehicle, be sure you are installing your cover correctly, always avoid dragging the cover across the paint surface. Our covers are made to be easy to use, but it never hurts to have a friend help. A snug fit is very important, especially when storing your car outside, to avoid any added movement from the wind that could cause surface friction.

It is just as important to keep your car cover clean as well; Be sure to always store it properly, in it's case or in the trunk of your car, away from dirt or anything that could damage your paint. A clean, dust free cover will go a long way in ensuring a scratch free car!

From California Car Cover,we know how important it is to keep your car in tip top shape and we hope you have found this information helpful! We are happy to help with all of your car cover needs, you need only ask!
