Selecting An Affordable Bicycle Cover With Great Protection

As the snow is melting, the option of riding your bicycle is becoming a reality. Selecting a bicycle cover that fits your protective needs is easy with EmpireCovers!

Empire Bicycle Cover

A bike cover is ideal for preserving your bicycle and keeping it clean. All EmpireCovers bicycle covers are breathable to prevent mold and mildew growth. When selecting the right cover for your needs, consider what elements your bike is exposed to. If you live in a dry, sunny area, you may want to consider our sunproof cover. If your bicycle is exposed to rain most of the year, the EmpireCovers waterproof cover may be right for you. Each cover offered on the EmpireCovers website has a full elastic hem to ensure a snug fit.

Waterproof Bike Cover

The EmpireCovers waterproof bicycle cover is made from premium polyester material that is 100% waterproof. The cover holds up great to all weather exposure. You don’t have to worry about leaving your bike outside again! A 3-year warranty ensures ultimate protection against the sun, rain, snow, dust and other elements and debris.

Sunproof Bike Cover

EmpireCovers also offers a UV resistant cover to protect from the sun’s harmful rays. The sunproof bike cover is made from DuPont Tyvek, the same material as some of our car covers. This durable cover is built to last harsh sun, wind and dust. The cover comes with grommets to allow for additional security to the bike. A 3-year warranty means no more burning your buns on a hot bike seat!

In order to get the correct cover size for your bike, you must measure your bike properly. Simply measure the length, height and width of your bike. Once you know the specs of your bike, you’re ready to select the best cover that meets your protection needs.

3 Reasons To Use A Boat Cover This Spring

A boat is a valuable investment, which makes purchasing a boat cover an obvious choice. There are many reasons for owners to use waterproof boat covers to protect their boat. EmpireCovers highlights the top three reasons to use a boat cover this spring:

1. To prevent damage to your boat’s finish.

Using a boat cover while trailering to your local lake or fishing hole can prevent against minor dents and scratches along the way. A leaf or small branch may seem harmless but sticks and leaves can cause minor abrasions to your boat while traveling at high speeds down the expressway. These minor abrasions can turn into costly restoration for your boat. Rain and tree sap can also cause damage to your boat’s finish if your boat sits outside, which leads us to our next point.

2. To keep debris off of your boat.  

Whether your boat is stored in or outdoors, it is at risk for damage from debris. Leaves, tree sap, dust and exposure to other elements can amplify any imperfections to your boat. A breathable boat cover will prevent these elements from harming your boat and prevent mold and mildew on your boat.

3. To deter thieves and other unwelcome guests.

Thieves typically look for easy targets. If your boat is covered, that is an additional step the thief must take to access your boat and its contents.  The thief will look for another vehicle to break into, which is one reason you need a car cover, too. A boat cover may also deter critters from calling your boat home.

EmpireCovers Exhibits at the Greater Philadelphia RV Show

Rows of RVs filled the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center. From the outside, these glorified houses on wheels may look the same. Once you step inside, you’ll realize there are endless possibilities for luxurious options.

Just two weeks after the Philadelphia Auto Show, EmpireCovers had a booth at the Greater Philadelphia RV Show. The Cover Experts took advantage of the weekdays by talking with local RV dealerships and campsites. While we met many friendly people, one person stood out. She was Gale Markey.

The motorhome lifestyle is a family affair for Gale. Gale’s son runs Stoltzfus RV & Marine in West Chester, PA. Her adopted son, who also works at Stoltzfus, was one of the top RV salesmen in the United States. She has almost two decades on the RV sale floor with many more years as an “RVer” herself!

Gale gave the EmpireCovers team a tour of Stoltzfus’ motorhomes from Class A to pop-up campers. Each home had unique features and layouts. It was easy to understand why RVers are so particular about their purchase. Soon, the team was pointing out different layouts they preferred and we turned into RV experts ourselves!

Many RVs and trailers come with a complimentary cover from the manufacturer. These covers are often made from Tyvek or polypropylene. While these are great materials for a car cover, so much material with little reinforcement can compromise protection. EmpireCovers offers premium RV covers made from marine-grade material.

EmpireCovers exclusive line of Premier RV covers are made from 300 denier polyester. Synching and partial elastic hems are available on all models to allow additional security to the RV. Vents and conveniently placed buckle and straps prevent the motorhome cover from billowing in the wind. These 100% waterproof covers also have taped seams for superior moisture protection. Full height zippers allow easy access to the RV while it is covered. An industry leading three year warranty makes this cover the obvious choice in motorhome protection.

Those who attended the Greater Philadelphia RV Show were given an exclusive 35% off coupon code for EmpireCovers. EmpireCovers is attending the Northeast Rod & Custom Car Show at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center on March 21-23. Visitors make sure to stop by EmpireCovers’ booth to get your exclusive discount!
