7 Good Reasons to Wrap a Vehicle Rather than Paint It
Looking to make your car stand out in the parking lot or on the highway? Perhaps you’re considering a wrap. You may also be considering painting your vehicle. What are the differences of wrap vs. paint?
Wrap vs. Paint…which one is better?
Below are seven reasons why wrapping your vehicle is a better choice than painting it.
#1: Cost: Wrap vs. Paint
When you are painting your car, the cost can go from $3,000 to $10,000 if it’s a quality job. This is based on the paint shop, the paint quality, and the color that you choose. Films that are professionally installed with really high quality materials can range from $2,500 to $5,000 for a full wrap and can last anywhere from 4 to 10 years based on the wrap that you use. This is obviously a lot less costly and can last you a lot longer.
#2: Resale Value
When you are going to resell your car, the car having the original paint from the manufacturer is going to help you with having a higher resale value. This is going to give you a better bargaining point than if you were to have a lower priced paint job. If your preference or company wants an exotic color that is really bright, you may not find someone who is looking for that color. So you can wrap your car with that color and then when it comes time to sell it the wrap can be removed.
#3: Endless Design Options
When you are purchasing a car, you may have your heart set on a certain color, for your business, but maybe that car doesn’t come in that color, or maybe there aren’t any for sale. That’s not a problem if you use a wrap. If down the road you want to change your color, it’s really easy to do that and have the car that you want.
#4: Time for Installation
When you choose to paint your car, you’ll have to find other transportation for as long as two weeks, maybe even longer. When you choose to wrap the vehicle, it can be done much quicker.
When you are wrapping your car, the car will have every inch of your paint protected from weathering and natural hazards. It also won’t be affected by prolonged exposure to the sun. It’s very durable and will act like a shield for your car. You don’t have to worry about natural hazards like chips from stones and abrasion.
#6: Easy to Maintain
You don’t have to wax the wrap to make it look good. Unlike a paint job, it’s a lot easier to maintain your vehicle. They are going to look brand-new just using water and soap.
#7: Long Lasting and Safely Removed
When you have your car wrapped, you will find that it’s going to last for a long time. The length of time that it will last depends on whether it’s kept in a garage or it is left outside, because it will fade faster if it’s left in the sun. But when it comes time to remove it, it can be removed easily without affecting the paint job of the vehicle.
Conclusion: Wrap vs. Paint
As you can see, there are many advantages to having your vehicle wrapped rather than painting it. It gives you a lot of options, its less expensive and it takes a lot less time to name a few. Think about what you are expecting from your vehicle and then see which one is best.
