Cover World gives you a FIVE YEAR guarantee against material deterioration and on all of our “OCEAN PRIDE” material covers. Our guarantee also covers the stitching on the seams of the cover.
This is because we use material that is specially treated to be HIGHLY resistant to the UV in New Zealand. It is the UV that breaks down material and cheaper covers do not have this protection.
Normal everyday wear and tear excepted and we do not cover damage caused by exceptional weather conditions such as wind and storm. It is your responsibility to ensure the covers are firmly attached and that strapping is not damaged by wind getting underneath.
You can have confidence that if you have any breaking of material due to poor quality then we will replace your cover free of charge.
All claims under the guarantee may require you to return the item to our warehouse for inspection. This is at your cost if we request it.
Cover World guarantee does not cover any product that is used when trailering. If you use a cover when your boat/caravan/motor home or any other product is on thge movethe risk is yours alone.
Our Semi Custom Boat covers are designed so that they can be used when trailering. However you do so ENTIRELY AT YOUR OWN RISK. We make this stipulation as we do not select the cover size in the first instance and also we are not present to ensure the cover is secured correctly each time it is to be used.
Cover World will not guarantee for tears or rubbing wear, as we are not able to say how they have happened.
Treat all zips with care. They are strong but, like most equipment, if treated with lack of care they will become faulty. That is your responsibility.
We advise using a silicon spray on zips that are in all weathers to protect and lubricate them. Keep the spray off material,
It is YOUR responsibility to protect all sharp points or POTENTIAL rubbing areas.
Cover World takes no responsibility for damage to paintwork or items attached to boats or vehicles. Our covers are designed with a smooth inner liner so as not to damage paintwork. However it is your responsibility to fit them tightly to ensure no wind abrasion. We also advise that you do not put a cover on any NEW paintwork until it has had time to dry and cure fully.

ADVICE ON CARE AND FITTING:
We advise that you offer your cover protection against sharp points on your boat/vehicle. This would include, but not solely, Rocket Launchers, studs, anchor or wing mirrors. Bird droppings contain acid and will rot any material or paint work if you do not remove it. Hose down your cover regularly with clean water to remove any soiling. Do not use washing powder or detergent on your cover.
You can use Soap to clean stubborn stains.
FITTING YOUR COVER:
Where we provide buckles and separate strapping fixing the straps is simple. Go slowly. Take the part of the buckle with the teeth in your hand and have the MOST indented side facing you with the teeth downwards. Take the strap and pass it away from you through the top slit and return it towards you through the bottom slip. Clip the two parts of the buckle together and if you have done this correctly the strap will pull tight like a fishing knot. If the strap slips out you have threaded it incorrectly so try again. Boat covers have a T shaped seam of stitching at the front. Our name and silver fern, where printed, are usually at the front of our covers on each side just behind the bow. Often there is a white tag at the front of the cover. When going around a boat or vehicle to tighten down a cover do not simply walk around tightening one after the other. We advise tightening straps alternately on each side. So start at say the rear left and then to the front right. Reverse this each time until you have the cover evenly and securely affixed. Finally if in doubt, or having a problem, remember we are here to help so call us and we will advise the best we can.
