Vinyl Car Wraps – Better than Paint?

Some people often wonder why vehicles should be wrapped instead of having them painted. This blog aims to let you know some of the benefits of wrapping your vehicle in vinyl.

While it is true that paint quality can vary, painting your vehicle can look great at first. However, just give it a few years and you will start to notice that the paint on your vehicle will show wear and tear. Having your vehicle wrapped professionally, however, can result to your vehicle being breathtaking for many years to come!

So, what are some the reasons to choose vinyl?

COST

Did you know that having your vehicle painted with high-quality paint can be extremely pricey? For the fraction of the cost of paint, you can have your vehicle wrapped for as little or as long as you want. In addition, vinyl vehicle wraps can last anywhere from 3 to 6 years, as compared to paint which can show its wear and tear just after a couple of years.

RESALE VALUE

Maintaining your car’s original manufacturer’s paint can only add to its resale value. With vinyl wraps, you will be able to keep your car’s original paint intact. Here at Unique Media Solutions, we offer high-quality vinyl wraps that are not only long-lasting, but can also be easily removed, leaving the original vehicle paint pristine! This is essential if you have leased your vehicle. While on a lease agreement, it is stated that all vehicles are to stay the factory colour and not be painted.

INSTALLATION

Choosing to have your vehicle painted can also mean having to go without it for two weeks or longer. With vehicle wraps however, its installation is fast with the entire process taking approximately 3 days. First day being the initial drop off day, second day is the installation of your graphics and the third being the day that you pick up your vehicle. Some specialty wraps may take a bit longer.
