Before you invest a ton of money on car wraps, we’ve collected the usual questions people ask before they hire us to wrap their vehicles. Without further ado, here are the top questions and answers to all your burning questions:
What’s the difference between car wrap and car foil?
A lot of people use these terms interchangeably and for a reason. Car wraps and car foiling is the same. It just so happens that car wrap is a more generic term and it’s the more commonly used term as opposed to car foil. To be on the safe side, go for the more common term which is “car wrap”.
What’s the difference between a DIY job and a professionally installed car wrap?
A good DIY job can almost replicate the wraps done by professionals. Sure, you can save a few bucks but at the end of the day, vehicle wrap application is an art form. Our professional team at Car Wraps have had an extensive training period and know how to handle different vehicles. Because each vehicle (and vehicle owner) have their own needs and wants, a professional team can ensure that you don’t have to deal with the roadblocks associated with DIY car wrap installations. Not to mention that professionally-installed wraps have a warranty as opposed to DIY jobs. Once you DIY, it’s up to you to handle any issues along the way.
I just bought a car. Should I have it wrapped immediately or can I enjoy the perfect paint job for a few more years?
It definitely is up to you. Take note, however. A fully-wrapped vehicle will not damage your OEM manufacturer’s original paint job. Some would even advise you to have your vehicle wrapped as soon as you drive it off the showroom. A properly-wrapped vehicle will prevent harmful UV rays and other environmental factors to fade or ruin your perfect paint job.
How much would a typical car wrap cost?
When it comes to the car wrap industry, you’ll definitely get what you pay for. Sure, you can go for cheaper car wraps that will cost you a few hundred bucks. But the quality will suffer and you’re not sure if the team behind the application are trained professionals with lots of experience under their belt. A typical car wrap will cost about $2,000 to $4,000. Of course, a lot of factors will come into play when it comes to the final price point. If you need to have your vehicle fixed so that the wrap will lay flat, then you have to factor that in as well.
