Car Covers

Post by unklpat »

I thought I might let you know of what appears to be a killer deal on a 100% waterproof 5-layer car cover. It is at Carcover.com and has a lifetime warranty. The layer that touches the car is fleece. They are 60% off, and if you enter USA15 as the promo code it will be $127.49 shipped to your door. The one I ordered for my firebird looked fine. I figured I can keep in my trunk until I can afford to install my top. Pat

I ordered one last night... got the same pricing. What a bargain.

BUT... then I immediately realized I had given the wrong shipping address (I need to send this to my brother's shop).

I sent a comment through the site letting them no of my mistake and the new address.

I woke up this morning to a confirmation email that they updated the address, and shortly after I got an email that the cover had shipped.

That is uncommonly great customer service!

Seems like a solid company, and I'm trusting Pat on the quality.

Thanks again for the tip, Pat.

Too late, your post qualifies as an Official Endorsement and you're on the hook now. Let's hope it's nice. Thanks again, pm

Wait, wow. I didn't know there was venison involved. If I order a cover, does Pat give me venison. Sounds good. Pat lives close to me, so I'm sure he'll bring it by. Awesome.

You were a mile from his house last week. If you would have called him like I suggested, he might have cooked it for you. My cover gets here Saturday. Pat

I ordered a cover for my 69 2000 Wednesday, already got notified that it has been shipped. The price was $127 and change delivered. Hopefully it will be a quality cover? I give my opinion when I receive it, finger Crossed. Bob

Oh Dave, Dave, Dave... you were soooooo close to getting a cooler full of venison. Shoulda reached out. Seriously, if you're ever in San Diego again, please reach out. Hope you had a good time. pm

Got my cover Sunday, looks good. I'll put in the trunk as insurance against inclement weather on road trips. Pat

I tested my cover over the weekend. The inside is not quite as soft as I had hoped and I think it could scratch the paint if I’m not careful. I too will only use it in an emergency and the price was reasonable so I rate it as an OK purchase.

I think it will be fine. If I was using it while traveling on a trailer it might be different. I could even make a tent out of it while camping. Pat
