Car wraps are a great way to add a little extra flair to your personal vehicle or commercial fleet. However, a few myths surrounding vinyl wraps give the wrong impression. We’ve heard it all, from being too expensive, difficult to maintain, and even just a waste of money, all of which aren’t true! Here are a few others you might have heard and why they’re just myths.
#1: Vinyl Wraps Damage Your Vehicle
In reality, the exact opposite is true! Car wraps are actually remarkable for protecting your car. They provide an extra layer of protection against the elements like thunderstorms, wind, snow and even prevent fading due to UV rays in the summer heat. You should always wait at least three months after any car painting before taking your car to have a wrap installed for maximum benefit.
#2: Commercial Wraps Hide Existing Damage
Vinyl wraps are excellent at hiding minor dings and surface scratches in a car’s paint, but any major dents or deep scratches will still be visible through the wrap. We always recommend getting any significant damage assessed and fixed before installing a wrap on your vehicle.
#3: Car Wraps Don’t Last
On average, a vinyl wrap will last about 5-7 years. With proper care and maintenance, they can last even longer than that! Another factor that impacts the longevity of a wrap is the quality of the installation. We always recommend using a professional to get the most life out of your car wrap.
#4: Anybody Can Install Commercial Wraps
While there are kits for car owners to install wraps themselves, we don’t recommend it. Improper technique or low-quality materials can decrease the life of your wrap significantly or lead to other issues with the exterior of your car. Using a professional ensures that you’ll have competent, experienced installers using high-quality materials. A professional can also advise you and help you pick the perfect type, color, and brand to match your style.
