Vehicle wrapping

Below are just a few of the most common questions.
Vehicle wraps consist of vinyl wrapping material that utilises adhesive backing to adhere to the surface of your vehicle. This vinyl can come in various colors, prints, and styles, offering versatility in customisation. Whether it's cars, vans, trucks, or even boats, these wraps can be applied to nearly any type of vehicle. There are two main types of wraps: full wraps and partial wraps.

F ull wraps cover the entire vehicle, while partial wraps cover a percentage ranging from 50% to 75%, depending on the customer's preferences and budget. Vehicle wraps serve multiple purposes. They can be utilized for stylistic enhancements or as a marketing tool for promoting businesses. Promotional wraps often feature a business logo, contact information, images, and other branding elements. To safeguard against sun damage, these wraps are typically coated with a protective UV laminate. On the other hand, consumer wraps are designed to create a visually impactful effect, making a bold statement to captivate viewers. These wraps are primarily used for aesthetic purposes rather than for commercial advertising.
So the short answer here is NO. Vinyl needs a smooth solid flake free surface to stick to. The process of application would also be impossible if the paintwork or lacquer isn't in good condition, as during the application process we may need to apply and lift and reapply the vinyl.

The bodywork would need to be smoothed our and sanded back before we can apply a new wrap. We do not offer paint or body repairs - this must be something that is completed prior to us being able to provide you with our wrapping services.
It is a common misconceotion that vehidle wrapping is a cheap alternative to respraying your vehicle. This NOT the case. Vehicle Wrapping is a bespoke high end product and service which enhances and indivualises your vehicle.
The pricing of vehicle wraps can vary significantly. Generally, for a medium-sized car or van, a partial wrap typically ranges from £250 to £600, while a full wrap can cost between £1500 and £4500+ all depending on the vehicle type, size and the design as well as the coverage required. In comparison, billboard advertising can be considerably more expensive, reaching up to £600 for just a two-week period.

Vehicle wraps offer excellent value for money, providing both aesthetic appeal, brand awareness and protection for your vehicle. When getting a vehicle wrap, it's advisable to inquire about UV laminate protection.

If you have any doubts or uncertainties, it is recommended to consult with one of our advisors who can guide you through the process and help you book your vehicle wrap removal.
