Charlie Hamilton
Change in Management

My name is Charlie Hamilton and I have the privilege of taking over the Space Cover Store from my fellow dealer and long-time friend Joe Volutza. I have known Joe for years and have tremendous respect for him. I plan on continuing Joe's legacy of providing quality items and excellent customer service.

Additionally, I plan to expand the items available on the site in order to better serve existing and new clientele. I will do my utmost to ensure there are quality items available for your collections. I am a member of the APS. USCS, ESPER, MSDA and UPSCS.

I hope you enjoy your browse!
