In this article, we will go through ten common questions people ask about vehicle wrapping. Furthermore, whether your car wrap is for personal or commercial reasons, we will answer every question you may have in mind.

How Much Does Car Wrap Cost?

The price of car wrap varies depending on the car itself and the work you require. Partial wrap, such as just mirrors or spoilers, can range from £50 to £150. A full wrap can be anywhere from £250 to £3000.

Here is a price guide that you may find useful.

The easiest thing to do is enquire.

Can You Remove A Car Wrap?

The answer is yes. If you professionally apply quality materials on to your carp wrap, the removal process will be very easy.

The key to removing it is by applying heat and slowly pulling it back at a 45° angle. Our engineers at our facility can handle this. This is why it’s important to only receive a vehicle wrap from a company you trust. Consequently, low-quality materials can result in damage to your car’s finish.

Are Car Wraps Durable?

This is one of the key advantages of vehicle wrapping, as opposed to painting. Vinyl wrap can actually protect your car from damage while allowing it to look great, as vinyl wraps do not wear down. Catching the occasional rock or stone is unlikely to cause any cosmetic damage – whereas paint often will show damage.

Can You Wrap Car Wheels?

Yes. You can wrap alloys, but this will likely be a specialist job.

Can You Wrap Car Badges?

Yes, you can wrap badges, as long as they are removable.

Can You Wrap Trim/Grill?

For the grill: similar to the above, you can wrap grills, as long as they are removable. You can also apply wrap on the trim, to leave a special “highlight” effect.

Can Car Wraps Be Washed?

It is not advisable to car wash a wrapped vehicle.

Why? Because the brushes and bristles can degrade and peel areas of the wrap. On the other hand, you can use handwash. Handwash is will cause less damage to your wrap.

Furthermore, you could also use a pressure washer to clean your car. However, do not use pressure above 2000 PSI. Make sure you’re using a wide-angle spray and that the temperature is well below 60 degrees Celsius.
