If you are considering installing car wraps on your fleet vehicles, you probably have many questions about the process. When used for advertising, custom car wraps don’t just look good; they also boost your business. Having all your questions answered is necessary to feel confident with such a significant investment. Let’s answer some common questions about car wraps.
What is a car wrap?
Car wraps are large sheets of adhesive-backed vinyl film that come in a wide range of colors or printed graphics with satin, gloss, or matte finishes. They can be applied to cover all or part of the vehicle. Once installed, they mimic the appearance of paint on the vehicle. However, car wraps are much cheaper and less permanent.
How much do car wraps cost?
The price of your vehicle wrap depends on several factors, such as:
- The type and size of the vehicle
- The type and brand of the vinyl material
- The surface conditions of the vehicle
You also can control the size of the car wrap. We offer everything from simple lettering to partial and full vinyl wraps. You are bound to find a wrap design to fit your needs.
How long do car wraps last?
A professionally installed car wrap can last between 7 to 10 years on the vehicle. The life of your wrap depends on the quality of materials being used, the installer’s experience, and if the car is properly prepared before installation.
How long does installation take?
The installation time depends on your wrap installer. They will judge how much time is needed to install the car wrap properly. In general, you can expect the process to take 2-3 days. This gives adequate time for vehicle preparation, installation, and graphics adhesion.
Do I have to wash my car prior to installation?
Yes! Washing your car ensures that there are no dirt, dust, or debris particles stuck to the surface. Your vinyl wrap will not adhere properly to a dirty vehicle surface. After installation, it is not recommended to power wash your car or take it through a car wash. High-powered water jets can damage the vinyl or cause it to peel away from the surface.
Are vinyl wraps safe to remove?
Removing the wrap will not damage the paint, as long as it is in good condition. It is not recommended to remove the wrap yourself, as this could damage the car’s paint.
