What is a wrap?

A vehicle wrap is a process whereby pressure-sensitive vinyl – in almost any colour or finish – is applied by hand onto a vehicle’s painted surface. It’s like a big, high quality sticker that can change the colour and finish of a vehicle. Wrapping is the newest and most innovative thing to hit the customizing world in years. Wraps can also be installed on boats, jet-ski, trailers, walls, floors, furniture, laptops or just about any surface.

How long does it take to wrap my car?

We will need your car for around two  depending on the size of the vehicle. This gives us time to clean and prepare your vehicle ready for the wrap. This includes removing lights, door handles and badges ect. We want to make sure everything is perfect before we return the vehicle back to you.

Can wrap be removed?

Yes, the wrap can be removed at any point in the future. It simply just peels off returning the vehicle back to its original paint colour. However if your vehicle has had a paint re-spray, blow-over, re-lacquer or has poor quality paint prior to the wrap then we cannot guarantee the above. If the vehicle has stone chips prior to the wrap, there is a chance this could also cause damage if the wrap is removed.

What is the best vinyl to use for vehicle wraps?

We use products such as 3M, Avery, Oracal and Hexis which are the leading brands of high performance wrapping vinyl all over the world. We can use different products depending on customer preference.

How long will the wrap last?

A wrap typically last for 7-10 years depending on the material used and conditions in which the car is driven and stored. Keeping the car clean is important!

How often should I clean the wrap?

Every time it starts getting dirty! It is essential that you keep the wrap clean as road grit and wear and tear can degrade the performance of the wrap. We recommend using mild soap and water to hand wash it down.

Do you wrap the inside of the car?

Door shuts, and interior areas are not included in the full wrap as a standard but can be for an additional cost.
