FAQs

How to clean the car covers?

The Design Your Own Indoor Car Cover is made of a soft cotton acrylic and can be machine washed at 30 degrees and then line dried.  Alternatively, this cover can be dry cleaned.
The Tailor Made Outdoor Car Cover is made of a triple layer polyurethane and we would recommend hosing down this cover before sponging it clean using a mild car shampoo.  The cover can remain on the car during this process.  Please then allow the cover to dry naturally, either whilst on your vehicle or on a washing line.
The London Covers Silhouette Indoor Car Cover is made from a Lycra blended Satin fabric which is machine washable.  Please wash this cover on a 30 degree wash with a mild detergent and then line dry it.  Please note, these covers are NOT able to be tumble dried.

Can I put the cover on a hot car?

Preferably the car will be allowed to cool before putting the cover on, however if this is not possible please leave the exhausts uncovered until they are cool.

Can I put the cover on a dirty or wet car?

We do not recommend that any cover is used on a dirty car as the dirt may embed in the fabric and cause scratching.  The Tailored Outdoor Car Cover is able to be placed on a wet car, as it is a waterproof and breathable fabric.  We would not recommend either the Design Your Own Indoor Cover or the Silhouette Indoor Cover to be put on a wet car.

How do I fit a car cover?

Fitting a car cover is very easy!  All of our car covers have a tag to identify the front and then it is simply a case of fitting the pockets over the wing mirrors and then pulling it down over the front and back. This should all be done in a matter of minutes.

How is the car cover secured?

The indoor car covers are elasticated front and back. Extra straps maybe put on by special request, please call us for details. Outdoor car covers are elasticated front and back and strong webbing straps which go underneath the car are added for extra security.

Are the car covers breathable?

All of our covers are breathable.

Do I need to supply measurements?
