If your car is looking old and weathered, why not treat your beloved vehicle to some TLC instead of trading it in for a new model?
What are car wraps?
Wraps are vinyl graphics stuck to your car’s surface. High-quality wrapping keeps your vehicle in tip-top condition for several years, while a cheap job peels easily and does not withstand the elements.
While researching businesses that offer this service, ask the following questions:
Does the prep work involve a thorough cleaning and a decontamination process?
What tools are used for car wrapping? (bearing in mind that sharp objects can nick the paint)
What materials are the vinyl wraps made from?
Why is car wrapping fast becoming more popular than paint jobs?
Will not compromise the car’s integrity.
A car wrap, even if it is a botched job, will not compromise the original manufacturer’s paintwork, while paintwork, done cheaply, will. If you plan to sell your car in the future, bear in mind that the value and integrity of your car decreases if its appearance is affected by a single poor decision that you once made.
Find the exact colour and style for you.
Do you want your car to match your personality? Out of the 300 colours and designs available, there is bound to be one that suits your particular style. While vinyl car wraps are made from durable material that lasts, it can easily be removed if you want to change colours for a fresh, new look in the future.
A fraction of the cost
Surprisingly, vinyl wrapping is far cheaper than car paint. So if you are looking for a way to transform your car’s appearance without breaking the bank, vinyl car wraps are the way to go.
That said, the work put into achieving the perfect look for your vehicle is thorough and meticulous, involving intensive cleanings, decontaminations and disassembling of car parts by expert mechanics. You are assured quality craftsmanship at half the cost!
Longer shelf life
If well maintained, your car wrap can last between three and seven years. This also depends on how often you are on the road.
Protects the car from damage
The wrap acts as a shield, protecting your car from sun exposure, stone chips, and other natural hazards that have the potential to damage your vehicle.
However, prolonged exposure to the sun is ill-advised, be sure to keep your car in shaded areas whenever possible.
Easier to clean
Tired of the effort that you put into waxing your car? Swap car wax for soap and water with your slick car wrap that is easier to clean.
Quicker to install
Taking your car into a workshop means you are without a vehicle, which is an inconvenience. You are stuck without transport having to make alternative arrangements for two or so weeks.
A car wrap takes between three to five days to complete, which in the grand scheme of things, is not that long.
Look forward to a new custom look with car wrapping.
