& The Questions you
should ask them.
Are they specialists in vehicle wrapping?
Vehicle wrapping requires skilled and experienced specialist fitting.
Ask to see pictures and evidence of wraps they have completed
Customer testimonials or contacts to speak to are also a good
indication of a quality wrapping specialist.
Have they got heated and covered premises to work in?
The optimum air temperature for applying a vehicle wrap is around
22°C, the film is more conformable and less brittle and the
adhesive is able to flow more quickly. The environment your vehicle
is wrapped in is critical to the longevity of the wrap.
Is it a dust free clean environment?
Vehicles have to be dust free to ensure a full bond between film
and vehicle, any contaminates on the surface of the vehicle will
reduce the bond between the adhesive and the vehicle.
Have their fitters attended 3M training?
If your vehicle is being wrapped in 3M IJ380 film there are
specialist techniques involved in applying the material, which your
wrapper needs to know.
Do they give you confidence?
The Wrap A high quality wrap can take up to 15 hours. Anything short of a day for a full wrap on an average size car should be questioned.
What material are they using?
If you have specified 3M make sure that’s what you are getting and paying for. Make sure you see a sample of the film and colour you want. If your vehicle is being fully wrapped, a cast vinyl should be used to provide the necessary amount of conformability to stretch around the challenging panels on the vehicle.
possible Added costs to your insurance?
Has the wrapper advised you that the wrap is
considered a modification by insurers, so might
incur a charge?
What is the condition of your car’s bodywork?
Any wrapper should be asking questions regarding the quality of your car’s paint work to make sure it’s suitable for wrapping. Any fresh or new paint work must be properly cured
If you’re having a digitally printed image make sure logos, images, lettering, etc are exactly where you want them. Bear in mind, if any text or logos are placed on curves on the design, they may become distorted when applied to your vehicle. We’d recommend logos, lettering and important imagery are positioned on flat surfaces
Make sure door, bonnet and boot wrap edges have all been trimmed and correctly applied.
