DashSkin vs. Coverlay: What's the Difference?

One of the most common questions we get is "What's the Difference between DashSkin and Coverlay?". While our products are very similar, there are some key differences that add value for certain folks.

At the end of the day, we'll be the first to say that Coverlay also makes a great product that you're likely to be happy with. And while we may be direct competitors, we can agree on one thing: Chinese copycat dash covers are an embarrassment to our industry, totally unworthy of installing in your pride and joy! 





COLORS DashSkin offers factory matched colors for our entire catalog, based on samples of dash pieces to achieve a match that takes average sun fade into account. Coverlay offers a universal pallette of colors that generally compliment common interior colors, but rarely match. Chinese manufacturers offer generic colors misleadingly labeled as "factory matched", and sometimes offer colors that weren't even available in the respective vehicle.
FULFILMENT DashSkin offers SAME DAY SHIPPING on all orders placed by 3PM central time, directly from our factory in Oklahoma. Coverlay's website states their products are made-to-order, and can take 48-72 hours to ship. Often sold through distributors and dropshipped. Junk moves at the speed of light! Your frustration will deliver in 2 days flat via Amazon Prime. Good thing it'll be easy to return!
SUPPORT DashSkin's knowledgeable customer service team installs dash covers at our HQ every day, and is reachable by phone, text, or email. Vehicle specific install guides and instructional videos are available. Coverlay has an experienced American support team that can be reached by phone, email, or live chat. Good luck! Chinese sellers have no hands on experience with your vehicle or the installation process. Their installation guides are fantastic (because they photocopy our guides and white out our logo).
MANUFACTURING DashSkin products are proudly made in the USA. Constructed of durable ABS plastic. Coverlay products are proudly made in the USA. Constructed of durable ABS plastic. Child labor, unsafe/crowded working conditions, overworked & underpaid employees, low product safety standards, subpar materials prone to warping in high temps.
PRICE DashSkin's pricing is the most competitive among the 3 largest molded dash cover manufacturers. Coverlay tends to be more expensive. Chinese dash covers are often half the price of a quality American made dash cover. If you have a $5 head, buy a $5 helmet!
INSTALLATION Installs easily over your dash using silicone adhesive. Installs easily over your dash using silicone adhesive. After the first hour of wrestling to get the cover to lie flat, it installs with a tiny tube of the cheapest adhesive conceived by man, and promptly lifts up to taunt you in your frustration.
