If you are new to car umbrellas, you may not realize how useful they are. Here are a few reasons why you should invest in one yourself.
Most car umbrellas will fit the majority of cars and trucks and so once you get one, you don’t need another when you change your car.
UV light in sunlight causes a lot of damage to paintwork. It breaks down the chemicals in the paint and this can cause it to crack and fade. A car umbrella provides protection from this effect.
A lot of debris can land on your car from the environment and this includes bird poop, dust, leaves and sap. Acid rain is another problem. All of these can cause unsightly damage to your paintwork.
If the paintwork of your car gets damaged, it reduces the value of your car. Therefore, protecting it with a car umbrella can save you money in the long run.
Car umbrellas can be collapsed down and stored in the trunk of your car. This means that you will always have it with you when you need it.
Getting into a boiling hot car is very unpleasant. Sometimes, it is just not possible to park in a garage or in shade. A car umbrella is like a portable shade. It traps a layer of air above your car’s roof which insulates it and it reflects infrared light. This can keep the temperature inside your car to a more bearable level.
There are some umbrellas that fit on the hitch of your car or truck and these have a different purpose. These are for shading other activities such as hunting, picnics or work areas.
