Do I need to buy a car cover for my Ford Ranger if it’s parked in a garage?
I recently purchased a 2019 Ford Ranger and for the most part, it’s always going to be parked inside. I’ve purchased outdoor car covers for other vehicles before, but do I really need to buy a car cover for my Ford Ranger if it’s parked in a garage?

Ford Ranger car covers have advantages, especially if you store chemicals, harsh cleaners, and potentially corrosive substances in your garage.
Generally speaking, a car cover serves to protect your vehicle’s paint job from the elements, reducing the risk of fading or scratching—and while your garage (presumably) doesn’t receive much precipitation or sunlight, it still accumulates dirt and dust particles, both of which can damage your paint.
While a car cover may protect your Ford Ranger from the elements, you’ll want to make sure it’s protected by the right insurance policy. Fortunately, licensed car insurance super app Jerry makes finding affordable rates easier than ever, saving the average user $800+ a year on their car insurance payments.
