Vehicle Wrap FAQ

What is a vehicle wrap?

A vehicle wrap is a process of covering a vehicle in a thin, adhesive vinyl. This technique was previously most commonly used for commercial vehicles, usually for branding and advertising purposes. Now, it is becoming increasingly popular for privately owned vehicles for colour change purposes.

Does vehicle wrapping cause damage?

Premium automotive films are designed to be removable. If your vehicle has original OEM paint, then installing and removing your vehicle wrap should not damage your paintwork. Problems, however, can arise if your vehicle has had aftermarket paint or repairs as this may not be sufficiently bonded to the bodywork of the vehicle.

You should bear this in mind if you know your vehicle has had any additional paintwork. Full vehicle wraps are a great choice for any new car, van or commercial vehicle. With added commercial benefits, a vinyl wrap also provides a durable layer of protection to your vehicles bodywork at the same time!

Can wraps be taken off a vehicle?

Our vinyl wraps and vehicle graphics can be removed easily, providing the correct techniques and equipment are used. You may wish to do this if you are selling your vehicle or returning it to the lease company. You may want to change the colour of your car or commercial vehicle or even update it to your latest advertising campaign.

We recommend a trained professional carry out this work, however, instructions for this procedure can be offered upon request.

Can I choose the design of a wrap?

Absolutely, our specialist designers work with clients throughout the wrapping process. This means that if a client has a design in mind, we are more than happy to implement it. On the other hand, we’re more than happy to work with a few ideas or concepts.

Can a vehicle undergo a partial wrap?

Absolutely. It’s very popular, both on personal and commercial vehicles.

How long does a wrap take to apply?

This depends on a number of factors. For example, what vehicle is receiving the wrap, what type of film is being applied and the coverage option chosen. Typically, an exterior colour change wrap takes between three to five days; a full-colour change wrap five to seven days depending on how many parts need to be removed to achieve the best finish. The client will always be given an estimated time frame for how long a wrap will take before the wrap takes place.

How long does a wrap last for?

If looked after carefully, a good wrap can last for around five to seven years. We can offer advice on how to look after a vehicle wrap during the consultation process.

Do I have to inform my insurance company about a wrap?

Anyone who has a vehicle wrap should inform their insurance company of such changes, even if a vehicle has received a partial wrap.

Does the vehicle need prepping before a wrap?

It is important that we receive the vehicle in the best possible condition before it is brought to us. If a vehicle arrives in poor or dirty condition it will effect the timescale quoted and may require additional prep work which could lead to additional costs.

Can vehicle wrapping save money?

Due to the fact that vehicle wrapping can last for so long, it is more cost effective than other labour-intensive painting options. What’s more, the top branded vinyl we use can protect a vehicle’s body for this entire period, meaning that chips and scratches can be totally avoided, even up to seven years down the line. Additionally, if you decide to change your marketing or fleet design, we can get to work unwrapping a vehicle and applying new designs in no time.

What about decals?

If you’re not after a full vehicle wrap, we also offer beautiful decals and stickers using the very same top branded vinyl.

Is signwriting and vehicle graphics the same thing?

Technically yes, the same installation process is followed. The main difference being sign-writing is usually for advertising a business or service. Graphics on the other hand are generally roof and bonnet stripes or any image/design the owner uses to personalise their own vehicle.
