Tarpaulin or protective cover
Unless you can rent a covered parking space , when you live in a city apartment, your car most often sleeps in the street, along a sidewalk, between two other vehicles. It is therefore exposed to rain, hail, frost but also to the sun. To prevent your car from losing its shine due to these climatic hazards , it is fashionable to protect it. And the easiest is, again, to cover it with a tarp.
Before buying it, remember to take the measurements of your vehicle so that the cover is perfectly adapted.

This will allow the condensation to escape. And to avoid scratches, take care that the inner lining is cotton. Finally, the last feature, opt for a tarpaulin with elastic bands, this will guarantee good support.

Do you have some land but don’t have the financial means to build a garage? Don’t panic, there is a solution: the carport . It is a light construction in wood, metal or canvas that allows you to shelter your vehicle. This device can either be leaned against a wall – it is therefore open on 3 sides – or freestanding, therefore open on 4 sides. Obviously, for the installation to withstand different weather conditions, it must be firmly fixed to the ground.
All you have to do is choose the carport that best suits your needs and your budget. For example, if you live in a rainy area, opt for a pitched roof so that water can easily drain away.
Take care, before you start building this type of shelter. If the surface of the latter exceeds 5 m², you will need an administrative authorization. Go to your town hall to find out about the regulations in force.
If your vehicle has suffered damage due to severe weather , quickly contact your insurance company for your compensation. But be careful, everything will depend on the auto insurance formula you have chosen. If you are insured with a third party, material damage will not be covered.
