8 Most Common Questions About Vehicle Wraps

8 Most Common Questions About Vehicle Wraps

When we talk about putting custom wraps on vehicles, many questions come up. Even before the first vehicle gets wrapped, there are lots of things people want to know. We’ve made a list of the top 8 common questions about vehicle wraps.  We did this to help you by giving clear answers. Our goal is to make the process easier for you and get you ready for when your wrap is installed.

1. Do I have to wash my vehicle before the wrap installation?

Yes. Vehicles must be free of dust, mud, wax, oil, protective-type products, and other agents that may prevent the vinyl from adhering to the vehicle surface during the installation of wraps and graphics. The vehicle surface temperature must be at least 60 degrees Fahrenheit. If the vehicle is not cleaned before wrap installation drop-off, a fee may be charged.

Please keep in mind, that we highly recommend NOT pressure washing the vehicle after installation of the vinyl wrap. Some pressure washers can potentially lift the vinyl because of improper use of the water pressure. The vehicle wrap is an investment in your marketing and advertising strategy and thus it should be protected. Check out these tips to keep your vehicle wraps looking brand new.

2. How do you remove vehicle wraps?

Don’t underestimate how to remove a wrap from a vehicle. We do not recommend uninstalling the vehicle wrap yourself, as this could cause damage to the factory paint job. Instead, talk to us about their removal process. We can assure you that when we remove the wrap, it will not cause damage to your vehicle’s paint as long as the paint is in good condition.

3. Can you wrap a vehicle with paint scratches, dents, or rust?

Wrapping a vehicle that already has flaws is not recommended as a line of action in this situation. The method by which the vinyl film is applied causes it to conform to any imperfections already present on the vehicle. As a consequence of this, the film does not have the same level of durability as other films.  

4. Who manufactures your car wraps?

5. How long do vehicle wraps last?

6. How long does it take to install a vehicle wrap?

Installing vehicle wraps and graphics should span at least three days. This timeframe allows for meticulous car preparation, precise graphic installation, and thorough adhesion testing. Adhering to this schedule ensures the optimal quality and durability of the wraps, guaranteeing a long-lasting and visually appealing result for the vehicle’s branding or advertising needs.

7. How much does a vehicle wrap cost?
