Right from the first time I spoke to the young lady on the phone to help me with my order I felt confident that You would provide me with a good product. After receiving the cover and putting it on my caravan I am delighted with the result, Thank You Very Much.
I think my opinion in one sentence says it all, nobody will be disappointed
Was apprehensive about the fit and quality of the cover before purchase and whether it would mark the windows or front panel and if it would be easy to fit. It is really well made and well finished.
However I have only had chance to use the cover on a couple of journeys of about 60 miles each but have been impressed with the ease and quickness of fit, the cleanliness of the front panel and as of now no marks on the panel or windows.
I just made sure the front was clean as per the instructions and it can be fitted and removed very very quickly so really pleased so far with the cover.
Th is my 2nd cover from this company.the first purchase from ordering,delivery,to many years use has been exellent.again i have been once more very impressed with my new cover and the service I have received .taking in to account the pattern is no longer available.a big thank you to specialised covers.
Ordered cover for my Aston Martin Vantage after buying another that seemed good but was as leaky as the promise to keep my car dry. What can I say - it was delivered on time, it fitted perfectly, its tough and the straps and snap fixers (although fiddly so tighten before you put the cover on) keep it in place (I live in Edinburgh's highest point and its normally a force 5). Cleans easily and the claim that the fabric is breathable is true. Ordered second for my SL350 and it arrived a week ahead of schedule - again perfect. At last, a company that gives a toss about its clients.
We bought one of these covers for our first caravan over 11 years ago and sold it with the van when we bought a new one this year. So we had no hesitation in ordering a new cover from Specialised Covers for our new caravan. You will pay a little more for these covers but the quality is very good, they last a long time and will keep your caravan warm and dry and looking like new.
I selected the cover from a number of offerings on line and chose one from Specialised Covers for a number of reasons;- it was tailored and not just a saggy heap; it came in a choice of colours; it had two under bike straps and it was middle of the road price. I was quoted 4 weeks delivery but it took 6 and then only after I chased them up which was not very good. It would have been much better had they phoned me much earlier and told me they were out of my colour choice. Once I did this it came within a couple of days. I'm pleased with the cover but was not impressed with the service.
It was truly a pleasure in dealing with Specialised Covers. They helped me correct my measurement errors and kept me up to date on progress and delivery. The product is excellent and the courier delivery surpassed my expectations. If only other companies understood the value of good customer service in supporting their products. I'll recommend them to anyone who should be considering a cover.
I was looking for a quality car cover for both my 98/99 Honda Civic 5 door models. As my wife passed away in Jan 2013 from cancer, she had always said she wanted her Civic Aerodeck to be kept snd not sold, as it was her pride and joy. I also have the same car, but in hatchback form. I decided to keep both cars and turn them into show cars, so had a garage built for them. Only thing was, I needed car covers that would protect them from dust and scratches, and keep them in good condition. I had looked around, but most covers we universal fit, and looked as though they may damage the paint through time, so decided that a proper tailored cover ws what I was looking for. A friend gave me the link to specialised car covers, and I'm so glad they did.
The staff I spoke to (Helen) were so helpful, and made sure every detail was right. They hadn't done covers for my type of car, so did a bit of research to get the details correct. They even took into account the cars were fitted with optional boot spoilers, and the covers were tailored so they fitted perfectly round these.
I can't believe the quality of these covers! The inside has a fleece lining, which is so soft I thought to myself That would be great on my bed during the winter!!! The covers even have little pockets sewn in for the cars door mirrors to fit snugly into, and the whole cover fits the car like a glove. As one car was red, the other blue, I ordered red/blue covers accordingly, and was pleased to see details such as piping (in silver) sewn in to follow the cars contours perfectly. The quality overall is of the highest possible, and I can rest easy knowing that my two civics will be well protected as they reach classic status. The covers each come with a little bag to store them in when not in use, again a nice little touch. Even the bags are colour coded to match the covers!
If you are looking for a car cover for your pride and joy, be it a £100.000 Ferrari or a £2500 Honda, then you won't go wrong with a cover from specialised car covers. I rate these highly, and have recommended them to friends. Buy one, you won't regret it!
I thought long and hard before I ordered this cover, primarily due to the risk of scratching. The order took the expected time scale although a gentle reminder was sent. The cover arrived and I was very impressed with the quality of the made to measure cover. It fits the car brilliantly and does what it says on the tin. We've had some really wet and windy weather lately and the cover coped with it all..and more.
I have one minor criticism in that the stitching on a cover over a clip has come undone. I did e-mail customer services a few days ago for their advice/recomendations..I am awaiting their reply! Otherwise 5 star product, 4 star service.
Everything that was advertised we got.fairly easy to put on but we got stuck with the cover only half on and we needed a step ladder to finish putting it on.
Once on it is a really tight fit.
We will see how it fairs after the winter.
My cover arrived almost to the minute and taking it from the driver I couldn't believe how light it was, it fits lke a glove and in the next two weeks we will be hitting the road using the cover for the first time, and already I feel good knowing that my new caravan will be protected from grit and anything else that may be thrown up from my own car and any other vehicle, and yes I have already recomended this product to another caravaner,
Danny Thompson, happy caravaner.
Bought the pro version, used it twice recently and given the amount of muck on the cover its doing one of its jobs really well. My van is kept in storage and so not always convenient to clean before it's put away, I don't have to worry about that anymore.
The Tow Pro+ cover proved very easy to fit even by just one person and fitted perfectly to our Swift Challenger 530. Quality of workmanship is outstanding and we would definitely recommend Specialised covers to anyone.
The product and the Company match in more ways than one. Quality, performance, reliability. I can not fault either the product is very well manufactured and fits perfectly.
It does what they say it does in their advert
Fitted cover today for the first time and with relative ease albeit we did manage to break one of the Harris poles used to help traverse the cover over the van. This was without doubt caused by our poor technique and first attempt. It would have helped though if there was a "How to fit" video on the website to view, This would greatly assist especially for the longer caravans where more fabric and weight is involved. Having said that we are very pleased. The cover looks great in blue and grey and the grey roof allows sufficient light through to the inside. Very satisfied.
I was provided with all the answers Ineeded as I noted that there were other websites which seemed to sell the same product much cheaper. However, I settled for this one but was disappointed that it would take about 5 weeks before delivery. It did arrive at about the predicted time and generally I am happy with it. I can only comment that my enquiries were dealt with very efficiently and in a friendly manner and the product is as described.
Company refused to get involved regarding fitting.If you accept that a 6" diameter roll of bubble wrap put in at each of the 4 corners is a "Tailor made cover "then maybe that is acceptable to your team .
I have bought from this company before.
Experience of dealing with them always good.
The main made to measure cover supplied is a good fit, not perfect but a good fit. The door opening is in the right place and the cover is fairly straight forward to fit. The blue and green colour scheme chosen looks good and the material is of a good quality. Communications with the office have been quick and the call to arrange delivery was useful. Some issues have arisen - The A frame cover was too small by 10 inches (new one being made at the current time after being asked to send measurements although no confirmation has been received as of 20th November), spare buckles mentioned in fitting kit were not supplied (awaiting a response) and one of the Harris extendable poles supplied to help fit the cover snapped at the handle first time it was used (awaiting a response). These are minor issues which I am sure will be corrected some time soon. Also the storage bag ripped first time it was opened (this has happened to a number of owners of these covers that I know) but it's only a bag after all.
This is the second cover I have had from this company. The first one lasted a good five years before the ravages of constant seaside weather finally caught up with it. It was an excellent investment, fitted like a glove, looked really smart and felt beautifully soft. Initially I was slightly disappointed with my second cover, because it didn't fit as snugly as the original one, didn't look as thick or soft as the first one and the stitching failed on some of the fixing straps.
In actual fact, this new cover has turned out to be excellent. It is certainly more rainproof than the first cover. My car is absolutely dry underneath and the inside of the cover remains dry even after the most severe storm. The water runs off as if there is some kind of wax coating. It really works well. The company immediately collected the cover for a no quibble warranty repair, and it was returned to me fully re-stitched in double-quick time.
I really rate this company for their excellent product and first class customer service.
I would certainly buy another cover from these people. Great British company, great British product to counter the great British weather!
Specialised car cover produced a tailored cover to my specification in no time at all. Great service confirming my order and it arrived by courier packed in its own bag. It's been on through all the recent storms and I'm delighted with the fact that it doesn't sweat or mark the paintwork below. A must if you're serious about protecting your investment whilst leaving it outside.8
I have previously had good experience of Specialised Covers (then known as Specialised Accessories) when they supplied a perfect fit cover for my Swift Archway caravan. When I changed my van for a 2013 Elddis Affinity 540 I did some internet research and decided to use them again on the basis of my previous experience.
Having ordered a new tailored cover and waited several weeks for delivery (as forecast because we wouldn't pay extra to jump the queue) my wife and I were very disappointed to spend an entire day washing and drying the caravan only to find the cover didn't fit. It was too short for the length of the van, the door opening was several inches out and it couldn't be closed.
I emailed photos to Specialised and was advised to either return the cover or leave it until after the winter! As the cover was so tight and the door opening couldn't be closed it would have been torn to shreds in a strong wind.
The cover was duly collected for a 2-weeks turn around repair. After two and a half weeks with no contact I phoned Specialised on a Friday morning and found the person I spoke to very defensive. Firstly the courier was blamed for taking several days to return the cover to the factory (not my problem), secondly I was told the factory had said it had been measured against the pattern and was 'correct'.
After a tense exchange I was told my order would be hastened but it wouldn't happen until Monday. Miraculously, that same afternoon I was informed my cover was now ready. Apparently, the first cover had been made to the incorrect pattern for my model of caravan.
It's now November and my wife and I spent another cold day washing and drying the caravan; using only cold water and buckets as the van is kept in storage. Although the cover, which appears to be totally new, fits better it is still not perfectly sized for the caravan. While the overall length is now correct it is too narrow for the van. The roof to sidewall seams on both sides sit on the roof of the van meaning an inch of the caravan sidewall is visible both sides of the van around the axle area.
Overall I'm very disappointed and wish I'd spent my £369 elsewhere. I will not be using them again.
Just fitted the new cover (our first from Specialised) and it went on perfectly. It's a twin axle 7.9m van but two of us fitted it within 15 minutes. Chose not to use the supplied poles as we find it easier just to use a step ladder at each side.
Took a little while to work out the best ways to attach the smaller "steady" straps but that's just because it's the first time.
Ordering (Online) was simple and they confirmed everything by phone including checking such details as where the TV aerial was!
Quality and fit seem better than our previous van / cover (from that other well known supplier). We shall see how it hold up to it's first Winter.
Like the fact that we could have a 2 colour cover as well :-)
One very very small point, one under strap (the 3rd from the front) is about 25mm too far back and just overlaps the front wheels very slightly.
We bought the first cover from Specialised Covers in 2011. The aerial gusset was two feet out of position. After winter 2011 the cover was returned and altered and was then good.
Due to a change of caravan we bought another cover in October 2013, (we decided to give Specialised covers another chance as the modified first cover was good and the staff handled our problem very well ), sadly the second cover was also made wrong and we have agreed to return it after this Winter for modification. The fit of the cover is not as good as the first one either, being rather floppy for a custom made cover. It is doubtful if I could recommend Specialised Covers in future.
Company appears good to deal with, the cover is a good fit, but I would have preferred at least two more straps to go under the van to fasten the cover down. When the wind blows the sides are always flapping, and I believe more straps underneath would have helped stopped that.
The detail required was rewarded with a perfect fit for our Pilote A class Motorhome.
The price was competitive and with the facility to get a 14 day delivery service for a nominal charge made the purchase even better. Delivery was a signed for service together with text advance notice of delivery, so again a good service to purchaser.
Ordered a custom made cover to fit my new Jaguar F-Type. Fits perfectly and protects the car from dust, and more importantly from cat's claws as they like to climb on the car whenever the opportunity presents itself. Cover is soft and easy to put on/take off
The cover I ordered a few weeks ago is the third that I have ordered from Specialised Covers, the reason being each time I purchase a new caravan I need a new cover as the caravan size always alters. The previous covers I tend to keep for 4 - 5 years and I find that they have lasted really well. My caravan is covered from October until March and the covers have been really successful. I wash and polish the caravan before I put on the cover and when I take it off it is still spotless which says a lot for the covers considering the winters we have had recently. The fitting of the covers has been perfect and the fitted door has been a real asset as we keep the caravan stored at home and entry to the caravan is a regular thing. The A frame cover is always a good fit and keeps the electric hook up clean and dry. I honestly believe the cover this year is the best yet. It was easy to put on and fits perfectly. Finally, the ordering process was very easy and the order was handled professionally and friendly. The only down side was the delivery, which was handled by an agent. We were given the time and date to expect it and it arrived as planned. I was actually outside washing the caravan and my wife was inside. I saw the delivery van drive past and went to meet the driver, however he drove away. When I went to our rear door I found a note laying next to the open door saying delivery could not be made and the cover was with my neighbour. Very unsatisfactory and extremely unprofessional, but no fault of Specialised Covers. Other than that I am extremely satisfied with the way I was dealt with and the product I ordered.
Specialised Covers certainly went the extra mile to ensure we got the most suitable caravan cover for us. We found our first purchase unsuitable and without any hesitation it was replaced with a suitable one. Contact was quick and very obliging.
