We can help regardless of how challenging your storage situation is!
Let me set the scene, you’ve just bought your dream car and it’s perfect from bumper to bumper with not a scratch or imperfection to be seen. The only problem now is you’ve been called away for work and you’re not going to have a chance to drive this dream car for at least a few weeks and maybe half a year. You’ve found the best cover on the UK market, your waterproof and breathable Coverzone Apollo Cover British made, ready for year-round multi-weather use and you have a designated spot by the side of the house to keep your car safe and dry for the year.
But how can you guarantee it’ll look as good in a year as it does today? How can you guarantee the rustling of the wind and the current unpredictable climate won’t find a way to sabotage your dream car?

We offer a wide variety of accessories that go hand in hand with your new car cover to help protect your car to the max over the long periods it may be in storage. Here are a just a few items that may help you if your car is going into a long period of storage, taking car protection to the ultimate level.
Padded Side Protection
If your car is being stored in an area that still has activity going on around, with the potential for people to park a little too close or kids to walk past with their bikes potentially bashing the sides of your car as they get in and out on their own, we recommend using padded side protection. This option is a sewn in strip of soft pads that are positioned along the sides of the car at the most likely level that the car would receive damage from door dings or accidental scuffing.
The pads will be fitted to the underside of the cover and will therefore always be in the correct position once the cover is fitted. This option is available for both indoor & outdoor covers.
We also make magnetic side pads and door buffers that can be positioned on the car or on your garage wall or fence to prevent accidental damage. Find out more here.
Windy Location Products
Sometimes parking next to your property or in a narrow driveway can be a little like being in a wind tunnel! Fear not! We have additional products to super-secure your cover!
An additional overbody strap set comprises of 3 straps that go over the car body and underneath as well. They fasten with a snap fastener similar to those used on rucksacks and can then be tensioned over the fitted car cover to prevent the wind from lifting the cover. They also provide extra security if you are away for a while & are supplied in a handy drawstring bag, all for the low, low price of £13.13 plus carriage! You can order online here.
Owners who live in very exposed locations such as coastal properties, hill tops and open countryside should consider a car cover net. These nets are fitted over your tailored car cover and have an adjustable bungee cord that can be tensioned once the net is fitted. This will prevent your car cover from lifting in the wind or ‘chattering’ on the paintwork for long periods of time. Our nets are available in 2 different sizes and we will be pleased to advise which will be best for your car. You can explore our range here.
Protective Mirror Socks
If your car was made before the ‘80s we recommend investing in protective mirror socks that give your door mirrors added protection and stop the cover from wearing on the mirror area which may be rather pointed or sharp. Using protective mirror socks allows your cover to last longer and adds protection to your car. Click here to find out more.
We also make protective bonnet mascot socks.
We also make protective rear spoiler socks.
Wheel Cover Set
These covers offer added protection to expensive wheels and can be fitted underneath your car cover. Our car covers are deliberately cut to keep the cover off the ground to prevent moisture from seeping up the cover on wet days. The wheel cover sets are non-absorbent so fit much closer to the ground.
Our wheel cover sets are available in 5 different sizes and designed to fit the wheels of your car like a glove. The unique design allows easy fitment to most alloy wheels & tyres without the use of straps or fasteners.
Manufactured from rugged black ‘Voyager’ fabric to hide dirt & brake dust, these covers do not absorb moisture & water droplets can be shaken from each cover when removed. They offer superb protection and added security for expensive wheels & are supplied in a handy drawstring bag.
Prices are from £36.23 per set, click here to find out more.
