EmpireCovers Hosts Surprise Baby Shower For Managers

The EmpireCovers team is growing in more ways than one. The wives of two EmpireCovers managers are expecting. While we’ve shared stories and given advice, we wanted to celebrate this exciting time, so we threw a surprise baby shower.

It was a fun day, as employees filled the conference room to celebrate this joyous time. Pink filled the masculine blue office and green conference table. Scott Shemtov, eCommerce Web Manager and wife, Ali, are expecting a little girl next month. Robert Brous, SEM Manager, and wife, Jude, are also expecting a little girl in January.

Throwing the surprise shower was a team effort as CEO Jake Goldblum distracted the expectant fathers. The women of EmpireCovers decorated the conference room. The looks on their faces made the weeks of secret planning with it.

EmpireCovers is in the middle of a branding campaign, which is an exciting time around the office. It only felt right to brand the baby shower! Each dad-to-be received a diaper cake, bibs, onesies and a blanket; all with custom pink EmpireCovers logos. The marble cake was topped with the logo, too.

EmpireCovers Releases Car Cover Commercial

EmpireCovers has been a leader in the vehicle protection industry since 2004. Social media and innovative advertising strategies have further set us apart from the competition. In a press release on Tuesday, we released our first commercial.

Watch as a jealous man uses black magic in attempts to destroy his neighbor’s property. Supernatural powers are no match for EmpireCovers. See EmpireCovers protective covers in action; a car cover protects a Camaro SSRS from water, a motorcycle cover protects a Harley Davidson from snow, a grill cover protects a grill from UV rays, and a carport protects a dog from a meteoroid.

The nearly two-minute video comedically highlights some of EmpireCovers products, but EmpireCovers sells hundreds of high quality vehicle covers to fit almost every vehicle on the road, and water!

EmpireCovers Founder and CEO, Jake Goldblum, believes this video is a great way for the company to showcase its products and personality.  Fans of EmpireCovers see entertaining pictures posted daily on Facebook, Twitter and more, but this commercial really grasps the EmpireCovers persona. We’re a fun company that’s serious about protecting your assets.

What Size Cover Fits A Class A RV

It isn’t a one-size fits all deal. While Class A motorhomes are large, they can vary greatly in length. EmpireCovers sells distinctive covers sure to fit almost every Class A motorhome. Choosing the right cover for your needs will depend on the size of your RV and where it will be stored.

EmpireCovers Class A RV Cover

All EmpireCovers’ Class A covers are 110” wide x 114” tall. In order to receive the best fit for your RV, measure from the front bumper straight back to the rear bumper. If a spare tire or ladder reaches past the rear, please add this additional length into your measurement. To measure the height of your RV, measure from the base to the roof. Do not include AC units, vents, satellites, etc. Now you are able to select the best size for your motorhome. Below is a full list of EmpireCovers’ Class A RV covers:

Size A fits most RVs up to 24’ long

Size B fits most RVs 24’ – 27’ long

Size C fits most RVs 27’ – 30’ long

Size D fits most RVs 30’ – 33’ long

Size E fits most RVs 33’ – 37’ long

Size F fits most RVs 37’ – 40’ long

Size G fits most RVs 40’ – 43’ long

Now that you’ve found the best size cover for your motorhome, it is time to select the type of cover. EmpireCovers offers two types of RV covers. Both covers have a full elastic hem around the entire cover to ensure a tight fit, tie down grommets for additional security, and an antenna patch. Our RV covers also come with full height zippered panels for complete access to your motorhome while it is covered. These covers also have air vents to prevent the cover from flapping.

ProTECHtor Class A RV Covers

This EmpireCovers motorhome cover has a top panel made from triple-layer water resistant material to protect against sun, dirt and dust. Single-layer side panels are made from ProTECHtor material, which is lightweight and easy to use. This cover is great for indoor storage.

Premier Class A RV Covers

EmpireCovers’ exclusive Premier RV cover is made from a durable 300-denier polyester to provide all-weather protection. This cover is 100% waterproof to prevent mold and mildew growth. An added coating of Durable Water Repellent (DWR) ensures ultimate water protection. Our Premier motorhome cover is great for long-term outdoor storage.

If you’re still unsure which cover fits best for your RV needs, please contact the EmpireCovers customer service team at 888-872-6855.

Chevrolet Volt Car Covers by EmpireCovers

Electric cars are the latest craze, but what exactly needs to be done to care and maintain your eco-friendly ride? While EmpireCovers hasn’t quite developed a solar panel car cover, we can protect your assets while you reduce your carbon footprint.

Although EmpireCovers car covers are semi-custom fit for high quality products at low prices, we made a modification for the Chevy Volt, without compromising the affordable price tag. EmpireCovers’ Volt car cover is made with a Velcro panel to allow your car to charge while it is covered.

This Made-in-USA cover is a great fit for your American car. Our American Max Car Cover offers great protection from the harsh sun, heavy rains and brutal winter. Dust is no match for this cover. Its 3 thick layers of Endura Plus™ material make it water resistant, yet allows moisture to evaporate to prevent rot and mildew.

The Velcro panel allows easy access to charge your Chevy Volt while it’s being protected. Built-in grommets and a full elastic hem make this cover ideal for daily use. This cover is also backed by a 7-year warranty!

Someone from the EmpireCovers team recently purchased a Chevy Volt, and let us put our cover to the test.

As you can see, this cover was made to fit a Chevy Volt. The double-stitched seams hug the Volt’s unique curves for ultimate protection. Protect your car while you protect the environment.

Do you have another type of hybrid car? EmpireCovers’ car covers fit 99% of all vehicles! Check out EmpireCovers’ wide variety of car covers!
