In this article, we will go through ten common questions people ask about car wrap. Whether you’re looking to get your car wrapped for personal or commercial reasons, this article will cover every question you may have in mind.

Can Car Wrap Be Removed?

The answer is simple – yes. If the car has been wrapped with quality materials and applied professionally, the removal process will be very easy. The key to removing it is applying heat and slowly pulling it back at a 45-degree angle – our engineers at our facility can handle this. This is why it’s important to only have your car wrapped by a company you trust – low-quality materials can result in damage to your car’s finish.

Are Car Wraps Durable?

This is one of the key advantages to having your car wrapped, as opposed to having it painted. Vinyl wrap can actually protect your car from damage, while it continues to look great as it doesn’t wear down. Catching the occasional rock or stone is unlikely to cause any cosmetic damage – whereas paint often will show damage.
