Why a Vinyl Wrap Trumps a Paint Job.
We hear the question all the time, “Why should I wrap my car instead of painting it?” The answer is like this. A paint job can range from $3,000-$10,000+ depending on the quality and paint procedure. Whereas a vehicle wrap can cost $2,500-$5000+ depending on the the material and extent of the project. Partial wraps such as roofs, hoods, chrome trim blackouts, and other accents are also a great way to get started beginning at around $300. Along with this much cheaper price tag comes MANY benefits that paint cannot offer. Paint quality can vary especially whilst looking for a cheaper price. Cheaper paints will look great at first, but within a few years can show wear and tear resulting in the paint job needing to be redone. Professionally installed vehicle wraps will leave your vehicle looking top notch for years.
