Stormforce PLUS - EXTRA DEEP New for 2018

Due to the success of our new and improved Stormforce PLUS covers in 2017, we have decided to take it a step further in 2018 with a PLUS version, specifically for 4x4s, Land Rovers and vehicles that sit high off the ground.

When using a conventional car cover on any of the above mentioned vehicles, the wheels tend to remain exposed, also the cover becomes an easy target for the wind. Any large gap between the ground and the under side of the vehicle can result in damage to the cover in windy conditions.

Its also obvious even when covered what the vehicle is under it with a conventional cover.  The new EXTRA DEEP hides the car completely, a bonus if you are a Land Rover owner as these classic vehicles are now extremely desirable to thieves.

The Answer,  is our new Stormforce PLUS - EXTRA DEEP.   This is an upgrade to the Standard 4 Layer Stormforce Cover by the factory, its a bespoke hand finished improvement, where an extra  deep 360 degree hemline skirt is added to the cover, as in the photo of the prototype.

The finished article wont touch the ground as we are planning a database of "variable skirt depths" for different makes and models of 4x4s and Larger SUVs.

Yes you could just use wheel covers, if you can find some big enough to fit but in reality they take time to fit and remove, each time the car is driven and soon becomes tiresome ( no pun intended )

Available also with our integrated car cover alarm for peace of mind

Due to launch early in 2018, enquire online or call us on 01744 633985 for more information.

Something New for 2018

We have been busy with several new projects underway for 2018. 

Prototypes have been made and are currently being tested for projects we will launch and reveal in the new year.

Something we are excited about are a new range of PLUS outdoor covers, specifically for 4x4 vehicles like Land Rovers, Jeeps etc where total coverage is required, but never truly ever really achieved.

This new range of PLUS covers is being announced due to the incredible success of the Stormforce PLUS Outdoor Car Covers we launched earlier this year.

Keep an eye on this blog, the website and our various social media streams for more information in January 2018. - i.e. Facebook - Instagram and Twitter

May we take this opportunity to wish all our customers, old and new a Happy Christmas and Great New Year.

Car Cover Reviews - Not all they claim to be....

Not everyone is lucky enough to have a garage and if your car is facing Winter outdoors, it pays to cover it up with the best solution available in terms of fit and effectiveness.

You will find so called independent reviews on the internet, usually by Auto Magazines that know little or nothing about car covers judging by few samples they have chosen, then give the best of them 5 stars.  Quite often the covers chosen are from retailers or manufacturers who have paid a fee to have their cover featured and reviewed....bit misleading to say the least.

Anyone serious about protecting there car over Winter wouldn't go and buy a generic outdoor car cover from some retail park and expect it to work as well as a fully tailored, custom solution, they are worlds apart.

So if you are looking for a cover for the Winter ahead, spend wisely, do your own research, listen to reviews by actual customers on forums and the like and make your own decision.

We know our covers are good and our bespoke solutions rank amongst the best available, but we will leave it to the customer to make the final choice.

Happy Motoring

Latest STOCK Availability on Cielo Custom Fit Covers

We have been busy, stocking up, mainly for the impending rush of cover sales, into Winter.

Always our busiest time of year, normally production times can stretch out up to Christmas with customers waiting 5 weeks sometimes for custom made covers.  This means that by early December, most places that offer a Truly Custom Product, and not an off the shelf general fit equivalent are struggling to fulfil orders before the 25th Dec.

So this year we have planned ahead and aim to have custom made and custom fitted stock available of our most popular car patterns.

So anything modern where we know the car wont have unique features, like mirrors on wing(s) fitted by owners or dealers, which have to be custom located for pocket(s) we will try and stock.

We currently have the following stock in already but will be looking to expand in the next few months.  

We always have the likes of Stormorce ( and New Stormforce PLUS ), Voyager ( and New PLUS), Monsoon and Sahara covers in stock for next day delivery, but if you require something more fitted for outdoor use , then the Cielo or Advan-Tex is the way to go.

To find our more about these unique two tone, truly fully fitted covers visit our Cielo Car Cover page

Old Skool Tech Combats New Age Car Hacking

There is a worrying trend here in the UK, that seems to be in the news daily regarding cars stolen off driveways and car hacking of wireless entry and start systems of certain types of cars.

Apparently rife in America, and soon to be over here in the UK and Europe.

Where criminals will still target certain makes and models of cars and even break into houses looking for keys, the new trend seems to be just stand outside the owners front door with a sniffer / booster device which can detect the signal emitted from the wireless remote which polls to the car if its in close proximity to the house.

Check out this story the Daily Mail ran describing such a theft.
If you google further you will discover a list of cars, which are susceptible to being hacked with an ever increasing number of stories about such disturbing events.

But there are things you can do and it seems that revolve around old School Technology to protect your pride and joy.

1) Use a Faraday Bag or Faraday Box when keys are in the house, this will stop the signal from polling from the key fob to the car when idle.

2) Use a Steering Wheel Lock, make sure key is NOT on the same set of keys as the car's.  We recommend using a Thatcham approved product such as Disklok which we will shortly be stocking.

3) Use a Security Post of your driveway, make sure key is NOT on the same set of keys as the car's.

4) Use a Wheel Clamp, make sure key is NOT on the same set of keys as the car's.

5) Use a Car Cover with Clip to Car Activated Alarm which can't be hacked. This will give you some warning against a signal hack and keys being stolen plus it will make it less obvious what car you actually have.

6) Fit a physical / manual third party Thatcham approved immobiliser or cut off switch to the ignition.

Further updates will be forthcoming
