Protecting you brand new or even used car is a must because buying a car is quite an investment. Just like we keep our money in a bank or in a safe we must protect our car even more because during daily usage there are so many things that can happen which will lead to you spending tons of money to restore different components back to its former glory.
You might be thinking isn’t that what why we have insurance, but then isn’t prevention better than cure? With these simple accessories you can save money and also time spent for repairs.
Below are some car protection accessories you must have.
A car cover is one of the first things you must invest in. A car cover won’t cost you a fortune and benefits fat out weigh the cost of one. Every time you park your car outside or even inside your garage you don’t have to worry about anything happening to your paint.
There are different types of car cover out there. There are indoor car covers made for cars that are parked inside garages and then there are outdoor car covers with features like UV protection. The best option is to opt for an all-season car cover because with today's climate swings you can have snow today and then a heat wave tomorrow.
After a car cover the next thing you need is a PPF or a car bra. A car bra is made of urethane and protects the car from scratches and stone chips. There are several layers and it also offers features like self-healing where the top layer absorbs minorscratches and regains its original form.
It also protects your car from bird dropping which can be quite corrosive on your paint. Read more about the different types of PPFs and exterior protection before picking one.
