Why You Want a Soft Roll-Up Tonneau Cover

We understand that sometimes making decisions can be tricky. Especially when you're shopping for one tonneau cover among the vast array of models that we offer. That's why we are here to make your decision a little bit easier.
Sometimes just perusing the website isn't enough, so I'm here to give you some reasons to purchase a Soft-Roll-Up Tonneau cover over the other styles.
Price point is an important factor in any purchase, if not one people generally want to talk about, and if you're shopping on a budget, or you have larger, more important purchases and are looking for a tonneau cover that is going to perform without breaking the bank, Soft Roll-Up covers are for you. Starting as low as $359.99 and rising to $879.99you can't beat the price while still getting the quality offered with our products.
At Auto Truck Depot, we pride ourselves in offering you the best prices on tonneau covers and truck accessories in Canada. If you can find the same model priced cheaper elsewhere we will most certainly match it. Check out our price match policy for more details. We also offer free shipping in Canada (some exceptions apply) and a 30 day test and return policy that is unmatched in the automotive industry so that we can be sure you are satisfied with your purchase. Now, on to the interesting points.
The first point I always make with the Soft-Roll-Up cover is how compact it is. Fully unrolled, these tonneau covers have an extremely low profile, sitting around 1/2" to 1 1/2" above the top of your truck bed rails. This means a clean, aerodynamic style that makes your truck look sleek and professional while also potentially increasing your fuel efficiency by lowering drag.
When fully rolled up, the Soft Roll-Up tonneau style takes up almost no room in your truck bed. It can be rolled up easily from one side of the truck into a small bundle which is secured by buckles at the back of the cab. This way, you have access to your full truck bed if you need to move larger cargo like furniture, ATVs or building materials. Because the cover is secured, you can then drive safely, even on the highway. The only feature that is missing from the Soft Roll-Up is partial truck truck bed access. Some Tri-Fold and Retractable Tonneau covers can be secured in partially closed positions to allow you to keep some cargo covered while still using a fifth wheel hitch or carrying larger cargo as well. This feature is mostly important when protecting fragile cargo that you don't want to get wet or blown away, and is less effective for security.
My other favourite point to mention about the Soft Roll-Up covers is their versatility. As I mentioned, you can drive with them fully closed or fully open on any roads. One of the other great features with these tonneaus is that they are compatible with almost all bed rails, bed caps, bed liners, tailgate protectors, and many other truck accessories so you don't have to sacrifice the functionality of your truck bed for security.
If the compact, rolled up cover gets in the way, or you just need it off your truck for some reason, they can be removed in no time, easier than almost every other tonneau cover, when they are in the rolled up position. To top it all off, they are as easy to install as they are to take off!

Quick, clamp-on installation ensures that the majority of applications will require no drilling or modifications to your truck. This means that even if you're leasing a vehicle, or need to temporarily transfer the cover to another truck, you can do so in minutes with minimal tools. Tool use varies from cover to cover, but usually only requires one or two wrenches and a screwdriver.
Let's talk security and durability now. Soft Roll-Up Tonneau covers are not 100% impervious. A motivated thief with a knife could cut through the fabric and access the back of your truck box; however, most thieves will not be willing to risk being seen cutting open someone's tonneau cover in hopes that MAYBE there's something of value inside. Deterrents are often as effective as any other method.
In terms of durability and longevity, this style has got you covered. They are engineered to operate in all four seasons, and many of the Soft Roll-Up covers have removable powder-coated aluminum bows to both support the weight of, and funnel snow and water off the top of the cover. The vinyl fabric that makes up the top of the cover is constructed from durable, stretch resistant fabric that is UV protected, flexible, and weatherproof. If the fabric of your cover begins to come loose or looks like it's over-tightened, usually only caused by drastic temperature changes or age, these covers have built in tension adjusters so that you can be sure your cover will always be taut.
Soft Roll-Up Tonneaus have weather guard strips built in to the sides and the back end of the cover. These protect your cargo from water and dirt and are supported by heavy-duty Velcro that is generally used to hold down the sides of the cover. A weather stripping comes with the cover to install at the bulkhead of your truck bed to ensure a four sided seal. Many covers also feature an automatically latching system that secures your cover tight at the tailgate when you push it down in to place.
My last topic of discussion is maintenance. Unlike many of the more complicated styles of tonneau cover, the Soft Roll-Up covers have almost no moving parts and require very little maintenance. Washing them down every now and again to keep them looking clean and sharp is important, as it prevents unnecessary wear to the fabric and rails. You can also use the Tonno Tonic (shown above) after it has been cleaned to protect the cover from the elements and general wear. Check out our blog article on tonneau cover maintenance if you would like more details on cleaning your cover.
And there you have it! Durable, reliable, easy to use, install and remove, the Soft Roll-Up Tonneau cover has much to offer you and your truck bed, and they are designed to last! If the features mentioned above seem to match your needs, check out our wide variety of Soft Roll-Up Tonneau Covers to find the perfect one for you! Check out our blog on measuring your truck bed so that you have the right measurements before purchasing your new tonneau cover. We can also help you find out another piece of important information, what kind of cab your truck has based on manufacturer,.

The Top Benefits of Access Tonneau Covers

Tonnosport Tonneau Cover
When it comes to choosing a tonneau cover, there is no better option than those made by Access. This manufacturer is known for crafting some of the most high quality, long lasting, and easy to use covers in the industry. There are Access tonneau covers made from all kinds of materials, in all kinds of designs and styles, and that are suitable to every make and model of truck. You can find many of these covers at Auto Truck Depot and, no matter which one you choose, you’re sure to experience many benefits once you start using your cover.

One of the greatest and most noticeable benefits of Access tonneau covers is that they protect your truck bed. It’s so easy for tree branches, rocks, sticks, and other debris to bounce up while you drive and to hit and damage your truck bed. Fortunately for you, your cover will keep those items from coming into contact with the truck bed and for creating scratches and dings that can be costly and difficult to repair. Another major benefit is that your belongings will be protected, both from damage that can occur on the road and from theft. Your items are also protected from harsh weather conditions, including rain and snow.

Once you start shopping covers, you will see that you have lots of options to choose from. While you’re encouraged to look at all the covers that will work with your particular truck, make sure you don’t miss the Access Roll Up Cover. This very affordable model is great because it’s there when you need to use it and out of sight when you don’t!

Roll and Go with Rollup Tonneau Covers!

Access Rollup Tonneau CoverDo you like the fact that tonneau covers provide protection for your vehicle and your cargo but hate the way they look? If so, then rollup tonneau covers are the answer you’ve been looking for. These covers install easily and quickly on your vehicle, but they don’t look like a permanent fixture. As the name implies, when you’re not using them, they simply roll up, out of mind and out of sight. Then, when you need them, roll them back into place. These covers function like a window shade and provide you with all of the protection of a more permanently placed tonneau cover.

It also has to be said that, even if you don’t like the look of most tonneau covers, you’re likely to find the ones at Auto Truck Depot are a little different! The covers you’ll find there are designed to be both functional and attractive. While other covers are big, bulky eyesores, the Depot strives to provide only those covers that look streamlined and stylish and that add to your truck’s beauty instead of detracting from it. Plus, there are so many rollup tonneau covers to choose from that you’re bound to find something you like.

The Access Roll Up Cover is a particularly good choice, and it’s also one of the most affordable covers of its type. Don’t the low price or the lightweight design fool you, however. Though it might not look it, this cover is built incredibly tough and can provide you with years of protection. Even better, if you order your cover right now, you can get free shipping, allowing you to save even more money!
