Car wrapping is a way of changing the look of your vehicle without the need for a complicated and potentially expensive paint respray. It involves completely or partially covering your vehicle with a vinyl film. This film can be used to overlay the vehicle with a different colour or design, add a gloss or matte finish, or simply add a protective layer.
Each project will have it's own costs and will depend on the extent of the wrap, the materials that are being used and the time that it will take. Although we can offer guide prices, we cannot give a definitive costing until we have confirmed the vinyl brand and finish.
A full wrap will normally take up to 5 working days to complete. Whereas a roof wrap will take around 6 hours- it really depends on how much of a vehicle we are wrapping. The weather conditions and the cleanliness of the vehicle will also influence the completion time of a vehicle.
Caring for your vinyl wrap will vary from brand to brand and is also dependent on what type of vinyl you have selected. For example, a gloss wrap is treated differently to a matte wrap. On collection of your vehicle we will always provide vinyl specific cleaning information. You are always welcome to get in touch with any queries you may have in regards to cleaning of vinyl wraps.
Applying specialist vehicle wrapping film to your vehicle will not damage your paintwork. However, if you already have stone chips, abrasions or rust patches on your paintwork it's important to remember that when the vinyl is removed it may disturb and defective paintwork. However, did you know that film actually shields the paint from chips, abrasions and weathering, preserving your cars' value.
Vinyl wraps are specifically designed to be a non-permanent change to a vehicle. As such they are totally removable. Depending on manufacture, vinyls are normally warrantied for 5-10 years. However they can be removed at any time. This is a relatively simple process.
A professionally applied vehicle wrap will last between 3 and 10 years, but this will vary depending on many factors.
A full wrap refers to totally covering the vehicle in vinyl. A partial wrap refers to a wrap not fully covering the vehicle.
Yes- it is a legal requirement to inform the DVLA of a colour change. Simply update your registration certificate (V5C).
It is important to advise your insurance company that you have had your vehicle partially/fully wrapped. Hence, should you be in the unfortunate position of having an accident or need to make an insurance claim they will be aware of the costs and materials that will need to be replaced.
A vehicle wrap is intended to be a temporary, revisable solution to colour change. A respray, on the other hand is permanent. A wrap allows you to enjoy your car in any given colour or style with the option of removal if you wish. For example, to re-sell it in the original paintwork.
We work with a variety of vinyl manufacturers who each have their own unique range of colours, finishes and effects. We have samples of all the vinyls we work with at our unit. These are available for viewing during our opening hours. Although we can advise on colours and finishes that suit different vehicles, choosing a wrap is a personal choice.
