Have you been considering whether to invest in a tonneau cover for your vehicle in Brisbane? There are many reasons to invest in a high-quality tonneau cover – here are our top 10. 

Protect Your Vehicle from the Elements

One of the best things about tonneau covers is that they can help to protect your vehicle from rain, hail and other weather conditions. If you install a hard cover tonneau, you can keep any luggage, tools or other items you carry around dry and damage free. 

Increased Safety 

As much as we don’t want to think about it, vehicle accidents can happen at any time. If you regularly carry tools and other heavy items in your ute, a tonneau cover can help to stop those items from becoming loose and potentially causing damage to passengers if there is an accident or rollover. 

Enhanced Fuel Efficiency 

With the cost of fuel, a properly installed tonneau cover can help to save you money. The cover can reduce drag on the vehicle, particularly when travelling at high speeds, helping to improve fuel economy by up to 10%. 

Improved Cargo Security 

If you’re like many Brisbane tradies, you probably carry around a lot of cargo – tools, equipment, and parts. It can be frustrating when someone steals those items out of your car but with a secure tonneau cover you won’t need to worry about leaving valuable items in the back of your ute while parked overnight or while doing a job during the day. 

Add Style to Your Vehicle 

If your vehicle needs a freshen-up, a tonneau cover can help. These covers come in a variety of styles and colours that can add a unique look to your vehicle. Whether you choose a retractable tonneau cover or a foldable tonneau cover, you can easily add style and a new look to your car. 

Easy Installation

Did you know that tonneau covers can be done as a DIY? With the right tools and proper instructions, installing a cover on your vehicle can be quick and easy. If you don’t have the skills, the tools or the time, a quality supplier or installer can install it for you. 

Maximise Storage Space 

One of the great things about owning a ute is that you can transport larger items around, but you don’t always want these items exposed to the weather, or able to be seen. A tonneau cover can provide additional covered and secure storage space for toolboxes, camping gear or even your groceries.

Improve Resale Value

You may not be considering selling your vehicle at the moment, but it is certainly worth knowing that having either a hard or soft tonneau cover on your vehicle can help to increase the resale value of your car due to the additional protection, and extra storage space. It is also one less thing that potential buyers need to do.  


In the current climate, a lot of people don’t want to spend a lot on upgrades or accessories for their cars, but the additional security that a tonneau cover provides can be well worth it. Covers don’t need to be expensive – in fact, they start from just a few hundred dollars if you install them yourself. They are certainly a cost-effective way to add value and upgrade your vehicle. 

Enjoy Peace of Mind

A high-quality tonneau cover comes with good product warranties which give you peace of mind that your investment is protected for years to come.
