Meet The Cover Crew

T.J. Cars began in 1998 as a family run car cover retailer, owned and operated by two older brothers and their little sister. Over the years, our company has grown to meet the increased demands of internet commerce. 25 years later, we have successfully served tens of thousands of customers and gained an integral knowledge of business, marketing, and web design. As our car cover business has grown, we have hired additional help to insure the highest level of customer service and aid in order processing, inquiry, and shipment tracking.
