If you have just bought a new car or looking to give your existing one a makeover, seat covers can be the way to go. Browse through Gumtree’s range of stunning seat covers that protect your interiors as well as give you that stylish vibe you always wanted.
If you are still wondering if you need new seat covers, Gumtree can help you decide:
- Protection: The main reason people buy new seat covers is to protect their original seats. If you have kids or are just simply a bit clumsy, you cannot prevent food and drink stains in your car. Thus, seat covers can be easier to clean, while protecting your original upholstery.
- UV rays: Harsh sunlight and UV rays can fade your upholstery. Seat covers with UV protection can prevent this. The sun’s rays beating through the car can also adversely affect the look of your dashboard. Gumtree recommends buying the right dashboard covers for added protection.
- Value: Protecting your interiors with high-quality seat covers can ensure you get a better resale value later. If you are looking to sell or trade in your vehicle, one of the biggest considerations from a buyer’s perspective is how well the car has been looked after.
- Aesthetics: Buy seat covers that represent your personality! Go floral, funky, or bold – customise the seat covers according to your specific tastes. Use this opportunity to express yourself aesthetically with your car.
- Seasonal: Invest in multiple types of seat covers especially if you live in a place where the weather changes rapidly. Use leatherette covers for the colder days and waterproof covers for the rainy ones.
