There are many factors involved in the cost of both paint, and vehicle wraps. To get a good, quality paint job, it can cost upwards of $10,000 or more. Cheap paint jobs are less, but in the end you get what you pay for. Wrap costs vary on the installer, and what vinyl is used. Most color wraps are done for less than $3,000 and last 3-5 years. Since many people keep their vehicles for a few years anyway, wrapping it may very well be much less expensive than painting it.

The main determining factor of how long a wrap will last is how it’s stored. If it’s kept in a garage and out of the sun for the most part, it will last much longer than one that’s parked in the elements every day in the hot sun. Typically wraps will last 3-5 years, but could potentially last up to 7. It is not recommended to keep a wrap on a vehicle longer than 5 years.

Car wraps do not damage paint in most circumstances. In fact, it can act as a protective barrier against chips, scrapes, and other damage to some extent when done properly. The only potential consideration would be vehicles that have failing or peeling clear coat. If the clear coat is failing or close to failing, it could be damaged when the wrap is removed down the road.

This question depends on what you intend to do with your vehicle. If you’re looking for a permanent solution to a vehicle you’ll keep for 10 or more years, then painting might be the way to go. However, if you plan to keep the car five years or so, or if you want the ability to change colors again down the road, then a wrap is for you. Additionally, vehicle wraps can come in many colors and finishes that are not easily (or affordably) done with paint. You can have glossy, satin, or matte finishes for a wrap, or even metallic, chrome, or brushed metal!

Maintaining a vehicle wrap is no different than maintaining your vehicle as it is. Washing it weekly is recommended, and hand-washing is strongly advised. Keeping your wrap clean and fresh will also extend its life. You can even wax or ceramic coat a wrap to extend the life even further!

Any car wrap has a cost. Material, labor, etc. all go into the final cost of the wrap, and sometimes it can be expensive. Additionally, wraps can fade over time, depending on the area and color you select. Wraps will also need to be removed and replaced at some point (Usually after 3-5 years)

In some ways, vehicle wraps could increase the value if it added a unique color or finish that went well with the vehicle. It could potentially lower the value if it’s something that limited the scope of people who would be interested in purchasing it. It also could potentially hide problems with the actual body paint, which could not be seen because of the wrap.

Absolutely! You can use a wrapped car in every way you can use one that isn’t wrapped. The only difference is that you’ll be driving in style!

Vinyl wraps have a possibility of scratching, but less so than paint. The huge benefit is that a scratched vinyl panel can easily be replaced compared to having to repaint the same section. Also, wrapping a vehicle actually protects the paint from the scratches it would have otherwise gotten!

Similar to vehicle wraps, boat wraps can be expected to last 3-5 years. The water does have some effect on the vinyl, but the vinyl being on the vertical surfaces (the hull) of the boat helps them last longer. Obviously, this range will vary based on the conditions and how the boat is stored.

Yes! As with vehicle wraps, boat wraps install and stay in the same way. You can expect a boat wrap to last 3-5 years, depending on use and storage.

Whatever color you desire! Some colors (like reds, purples, and pinks) do tend to fade more quickly, so keep that in mind when selecting your boat wrap color.

All vinyl wraps (both on vehicles and boats) can be removed. If the wrap is old, it may take much more effort and skill to remove properly.

Typically, only the upper portion of the hull is wrapped, which isn’t permanently submerged, but the vinyl getting wet is perfectly fine. It is not recommend to wrap portions that are permanently under water.

Trailer wraps last from 3 to 7 years, depending on use, storage, and other environmental factors. Keeping it out of the sun as much as possible, and parking it indoors will help the wrap last far longer than it would otherwise.

The same vinyl we use on our vehicle wraps is used for trailer wraps. Many companies use less expensive and lower quality vinyl for trailers, we have found that we get much better results from using the best vinyl at an affordable price. We never skimp on quality to save a few pennies!
