Frequently Asked Questions
This section of our website contains answers to the most Frequently Asked Questions about vehicle vinyl wrap. If you still have inquiries you can contact us for further assistance.
What is a vehicle wrap?
A wrap is a large vinyl sticker, decal or PVC film. It is applied directly over the original paint of the vehicle. The application of the wrap allows you to change the vehicles appearance in a very short period of time. The vinyl wrap can be removed to return the vehicle back to its original condition if necessary. The application is so precise it is often mistaken for a paint job.
How much does it cost?
The cost depends on the size of the car (make/model/year/type of body/bodykit existence) and colour you would like to get.

How long will a wrap last on my vehicle?
Materials which we use designed for outdoor long term usage carries a warranty of 6-9 years. You can expect your wrap to last 5 years or longer.
Is there a warranty on the wrap?
3 years warranty. We stand behind all of our work so if there are any issues we will give you our full attention. Warranty does not cover mechanical or chemical damage.
Will the vinyl wrap get stonechiped?
The wrap will not get as bad stonechips as paint. The material we use is thick enough and soft, so it will absorb the impact from the stones.
What if I damaged the wrap?
Minor scratches desapears by heat (summer sun or heat from a heatgun lightly melts the material), medium scratches can be polished the same way as paintwork. Some deeply scratched panel needs to be rewrapped. We just simply remove the old layer and apply the new one.
How long does the process take?
Full wraps are typically completed in 2-3 days, depending on the size of the vehicle. Roofs, bonnets, spoilers wraps – 1,5 hour. Time estimates are given to our customers prior to beginning the installation process.
Can the wrap be removed later?
Yes. The wrap is actually stacked to the vehicle using heat and pressure-sensitive adhesives that can be deactivated by our installers. The removal process is very short.
Will it damage my paint?
No. A car wrap, when applied and removed correctly, does not damage your car’s OEM paint. In fact, it protects it!
If you already have stone chips, abrasions or rust patches on your paintwork it’s important to remember that when the vinyl is removed it may pull loose paint off with it. We can fix the damage of paintwok first and then wrap the car.
How do you wrap a vehicle?
Our experienced installers accurately strip the necessary parts from the car (door handles, mirrors, badges, trim,lights), clean and degrease the car, then apply the self adhesive film to the vehicle. Every part wraps around separately to achieve the best and reliable finish. At the end everything is put together.
How do I care for my wrap?
It is best to hand wash your wrapped vehicle. Powerwash+sponge+car shampoo is the best method. Powerwasher jet distance from the car should be more 1m approx. The gloss finish vinyls can be even polished and waxed same way as painwork!
What else you can wrap?
All types of vehicles inside and out: cars, vans, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles (some of them), trailers, boats (some of them).
Electronic devices: laptops, phones etc.
Do I need to change the colour in my log book?
The Motor tax office should only be informed when you have made a permanent colour change. As vehicle wraps are temporary there is no need to advise them of your wrap.
If the Garda do a registration number check they may stop you and ask questions regarding the colour. It is very easy to demonstrate that the vinyl is temporary and not the true colour – simply lift your bonnet.
If my vehicle is in an accident, can the wrap be repaired?
Yes. We can re-wrap the necessary sections of the car that need repair. Often insurance will cover the cost as well. The main benefit is that you will get 100% colour match to other car body panels, which is very important especially for matt finishes and pearlescent colours.
