For many, the month of
March brings about images of melting snow, green grass and budding flowers. For
sports lovers, only one thing comes to mind: the Men’s College Basketball Tournament.
Basketball fans and sports enthusiasts alike celebrate this Tournament with
gritted teeth, as buzzer beaters and underdog upsets can make or break a
longstanding tradition - fantasy brackets.
EmpireCovers' College Basketball Bracket Competition
Think your bracket’s got
what it takes? EmpireCovers is offering the chance for three lucky people to
become bracket champions this season. Just post your bracket to EmpireCovers' pool for your shot at a $250 Visa Gift Card. The
first place runner up will receive a $50 gift card and the second place runner
up will receive a $25 Visa Gift Card. But that’s not all…
Every game day, one hour
before the first game is scheduled to start, there will be a NCAA or NBA trivia
related question emailed out. The first person to write the correct answer on
our Facebook Wall will be entered to win a FREE cover at the conclusion of the
Ugh, trivia’s not exactly
your strong point? Don’t worry. Throughout the tournament we will be offering
other awesome opportunities for you to win free gear from EmpireCovers. We’ll
also be giving away outdoor living items – think patio umbrellas, hammocks, etc.
- from our sister site, EmpirePatio.
Want to earn even more
bragging rights? Invite your friends to
participate in the challenge to see whose bracket reigns supreme! You’d be mad to miss out!
Fuzzy on this whole bracket thing? We can help.
A bracket is essentially a
map of all the teams competing in the tournament. It shows which teams will
face off and how the winners will advance through each round. To participate in
our bracket challenge simply fill out your bracket (i.e. choose a winner of
each game based on knowledge, stats, preferences, psychic feelings, jersey
colors, etc.) prior to the beginning of the tournament. Once you get to the
championship game choose a tournament winner and predict what the final score
will be (this helps eradicate any potential ties).
Upsets are common for a tournament of this size
and can erase all hopes of a perfect bracket in an instant. Just because a team has a better record than
their opponent does not guarantee they will pass on to the next round. #mwuahaha

Freezing temperatures have rapidly fallen upon us and although Father Winter has been generous with the lack of severe precipitation, luck can only hold out for so long. For those who welcome a sizable snowfall with open arms, the winter season is a time for embracing activities that aren’t practical in the warmer months. Snowmobiling is a popular hobby of winter-lovers all across the country. Storage during both regular season and offseason is an important factor for guaranteeing the upkeep of your vehicle. Here at Empire Covers, we specialize in making covers that ensure your snowmobile will be properly protected and ready for use when the time comes. We offer a variety of snowmobile covers that range from rustproof, waterproof, and trailerable. The outer layers of our covers are made from a weather resistant polyester material that provides great protection from the outdoor elements, while the inside of our covers are made to safeguard your snowmobile from any scratches.
How do I know what size I need?
Before choosing a cover, you must measure your snowmobile in order to make sure that you know the proper size. When measuring your vehicle, make sure that your start at the nose, continue up over the handlebars and windshield, and finish at the back end. Our sizes range from medium, large, and extra-large. The exact parameters of each are:
- Medium: 115” L x 51” W x 48” H
- Large: 130” L x 51” W x 48” H
- Extra-Large: 145” L x 51” W x 48” H
Which cover is right for me?
If you’re having trouble deciding what cover you should purchase, try viewing the situation from a storage perspective.
Long Term Storage
If you are looking to purchase a cover to protect your snowmobile during the offseason, our RUSTec Snowmobile Cover offers superior protection from rain, sun, snow, and dirt. The RUSTec Cover not only shields your vehicle from the outdoor elements, but also deters rust from building up on the snowmobile’s exterior while it is inactive.
Short Term Storage
If you’re looking to protect your snowmobile during the regular season when its use is almost daily, our Trailerable Snowmobile Cover offers all of the outdoor element protection but is also made with reinforced seams that keep your vehicle secure while it’s being hauled. Our Waterproof Snowmobile Cover is our third selection and provides 100% resistance against any sun, rain, snow, and dust. At Empire Covers we also offer a Cable and Lock Kit to further ensure the safety of your vehicle and its cover.

As the snow is melting, the option of riding your bicycle is becoming a reality. Selecting a bicycle cover that fits your protective needs is easy with EmpireCovers!
A bike cover is ideal for preserving your bicycle and keeping it clean. All EmpireCovers bicycle covers are breathable to prevent mold and mildew growth. When selecting the right cover for your needs, consider what elements your bike is exposed to. If you live in a dry, sunny area, you may want to consider our sunproof cover. If your bicycle is exposed to rain most of the year, the EmpireCovers waterproof cover may be right for you. Each cover offered on the EmpireCovers website has a full elastic hem to ensure a snug fit.
Waterproof Bike Cover
The EmpireCovers waterproof bicycle cover is made from premium polyester material that is 100% waterproof. The cover holds up great to all weather exposure. You don’t have to worry about leaving your bike outside again! A 3-year warranty ensures ultimate protection against the sun, rain, snow, dust and other elements and debris.
Sunproof Bike Cover
EmpireCovers also offers a UV resistant cover to protect from the sun’s harmful rays. The sunproof bike cover is made from DuPont Tyvek, the same material as some of our car covers. This durable cover is built to last harsh sun, wind and dust. The cover comes with grommets to allow for additional security to the bike. A 3-year warranty means no more burning your buns on a hot bike seat!
In order to get the correct cover size for your bike, you must measure your bike properly. Simply measure the length, height and width of your bike. Once you know the specs of your bike, you’re ready to select the best cover that meets your protection needs.
A boat is a valuable investment, which makes purchasing a boat cover an obvious choice. There are many reasons for owners to use waterproof boat covers to protect their boat. EmpireCovers highlights the top three reasons to use a boat cover this spring:
1. To prevent damage to your boat’s finish.
Using a boat cover while trailering to your local lake or fishing hole can prevent against minor dents and scratches along the way. A leaf or small branch may seem harmless but sticks and leaves can cause minor abrasions to your boat while traveling at high speeds down the expressway. These minor abrasions can turn into costly restoration for your boat. Rain and tree sap can also cause damage to your boat’s finish if your boat sits outside, which leads us to our next point.
2. To keep debris off of your boat.
Whether your boat is stored in or outdoors, it is at risk for damage from debris. Leaves, tree sap, dust and exposure to other elements can amplify any imperfections to your boat. A breathable boat cover will prevent these elements from harming your boat and prevent mold and mildew on your boat.
3. To deter thieves and other unwelcome guests.
Thieves typically look for easy targets. If your boat is covered, that is an additional step the thief must take to access your boat and its contents. The thief will look for another vehicle to break into, which is one reason you need a car cover, too. A boat cover may also deter critters from calling your boat home.
If you had a boat growing up, some of your favorite memories were made on the water. Boats come in many shapes and sizes. There are pontoon boats for leisure time and bass boats for novice fishermen. EmpireCovers offers covers for boats of many shapes and sizes. These boat covers are guaranteed to fit your boat and offer superior protection.

One automotive company is showcasing its expansive line of vehicle protection products at the 2014 Philadelphia Auto Show and giving away this years’ hottest electronics.
EmpireCovers, a vehicle protective cover company, is a vendor at the 2014 Philadelphia Auto Show. Located in Jenkintown, EmpireCovers specializes in selling high quality protective covers for cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, RVs and more.
The eCommerce company is excited to venture into the car show circuit.
“EmpireCovers is dedicated to the local community so it’s only appropriate that the Philadelphia Auto Show is our first major event,” said Founder and CEO, Jake Goldblum. “Since 2004, EmpireCovers has been an online business so attending the show will be a great opportunity for us to interact face-to-face with our customers. The EmpireCovers team enjoys being in front of car enthusiasts and educating people about our covers.”
The EmpireCovers booth will feature its premium vehicle covers: the American Armor, Titan Indoor Soft Stretch and Rust-Oleum® 5 Layer Waterproof. Visitors will see the covers in action, as a Corvette with an EmpireCovers car cover will be on display. A special discount code will be given to visitors who stop by the booth.

The 2014 Philadelphia Auto Show is scheduled to run February 8th-16th at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
Each month, EmpireCovers interviews a local expert to showcase local industry expertise and talent. This month we met with Adam Cramer, star of Philly Throttle.
This motorcycle mechanic’s knowledge goes beyond repair and maintenance. Cramer is also a wordsmith with a love for Philadelphia. When I asked if he would sit down for an interview, he obliged. I soon noticed Cramer wasn’t used to sitting down. He’s always on the go, so he answered my questions as he repaired a café racer motorcycle.
Maintaining a motorcycle while it is in good condition is the most important part of motorcycle care. Cramer talks about his EmpireCovers motorcycle cover and his favorite features. Protect your bike, whether it’s stored indoors or outside with EmpireCovers.
Watch the full interview:
Liberty Vintage Motorcycles is located in the heart of Philadelphia’s Fishtown district. From the outside, a large metal gate and chains secure the shop. For those lucky enough to go inside, the shop is a wonderland of vintage motorcycles. I didn’t count the number of bikes, but I would guess it’s in the hundreds. There were rows of Harleys, Triumphs, Hondas and more. If you look up, you’ll see motorcycles literally hanging from the ceiling. There’s also a helicopter. Yes, a helicopter.
The shop is definitely a hidden gem. The first Friday of every month, the art community opens its doors to showcase local talent and pieces. Cramer also opens his doors. Local bands play, there is a keg and everyone has a good time. From time to time, people ask Cramer where the art is displayed. His response is “everywhere.”
For Cramer, it’s a work hard, play hard attitude. He admits that he never wants to lose sight of what’s important to him – the motorcycles. Each bike has its own story and beauty. While he doesn’t want to know how many motorcycles he has, he appreciates them all the same. He even called himself the motorcycle Casanova.
Car parts and vintage memorabilia filled the Auto Mania halls. Carlisle Events hosted the largest indoor heated swap and meet at the Agricultural Hall in Allentown, PA. The EmpireCovers team attended the event and dusted off some hidden automotive treasures.
Thousands of car enthusiasts attended the car corral and swap meet. There were vendors outside braving the winter vortex and others comfortably inside. Cars for sale filled the parking lot. A few classics could be found inside in mint condition for a bargain. If you were looking for a car part, this was the place to be.
From tools to engines, vendors at the Carlisle event had it all. There were rows of hand-made model cars, vintage road signs and more. It was like a blast from the past. It was also an opportunity the team to talk about EmpireCovers car covers.

Purchasing a car cover is an important investment. It is also an easy process with EmpireCovers. There are a few questions you will need to ask yourself before buying a car cover.
First, ask yourself which elements your vehicle is exposed to. If the vehicle is parked in a garage, you will want an indoor car cover. If you leave your vehicle outside, you will want an outdoor car cover that can withstand the elements. If you live in the north, you may want to protect against snow and rain. If you live in the south, you may want to protect against UV rays.
Now that you know what elements you want to protect your car against, you can select the cover that best fits your needs. EmpireCovers makes the process even easier with a car cover selector. Simply enter the year, make and model of the vehicle you would like to protect. EmpireCovers will automatically provide a list of car covers that fit your vehicle.
EmpireCovers offers a variety of covers to meet any budget and protect against the elements. If you are looking for an indoor car cover, you may like EmpireCovers Titan Indoor Car Cover for the best protection against dust and other indoor hazards. If you’re looking for an all-weather cover to protect against a variety of elements, you may want to purchase the American Armor Car Cover. This durable cover is 100% waterproof, UV resistant and made completely in the United States!
Each EmpireCovers car cover has unique protective benefits for your vehicle. Purchasing a cover for your vehicle will protect your investment for years to come. If you’re still unsure which cover is best for you, contact our product specialists at 888.872.6855. They will help you select a car cover that meets all of your protective needs.
