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 remove loose paint when it is removed. But did you know? The film actually shields the paint against chips, abrasions and weathering to preserve your cars future value. Also if you have had recent bodywork or a recent respray we suggest waiting at least 2 months after work before having your vehicle wrapped.
A professionally applied vehicle wrap will last between 3 and 5 years depending on the material of the wrap. You should wash your vehicle as normal with warm soapy water, but please avoid using pressure-washers to ensure your wrap will last.
Yes. The vehicle wrapping film we use is applied with high quality adhesives and can be easily removed within 5 years of the wrap being installed. Please note, some wraps such as Chrome wraps may take a little longer to remove since they ‘snap’ easier when pulled.
Vehicle wrapping is most effective when the whole vehicle is covered in a complete design, but you can choose to wrap just part of the vehicle, such as the rear doors or side panels or even just the roof and mirrors. If you have any other questions… Contact us and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Firstly you need to inform your insurance company, It is important that you advise your insurance company that you have had your vehicle part/fully wrapped. This way should you be in the unfortunate position of having an accident or need to claim on your insurance company then they are aware of the costs and materials that will need to be replaced.
The DVLA should only be contacted should the car be a permanent colour change. As vehicle wraps are temporary there is no need to advise them of your wrap.
Police, As part of the police’s vehicle database, your car registration is linked to the make, model and colour of your vehicle. If the police do a registration number check they may stop you and ask questions regarding the colour. It is very easy to demonstrate that the vinyl is temporary and not the true colour.
