What Is a Commercial Car Wrap?

How Long Does a Commercial Car Wrap Take to Complete?
The time it takes to apply a commercial car wrap depends on how extensive you want the project to be. One option is to simply wrap the whole car. This usually only takes a few days from start to finish. However, if you want the door jams to match or add another layer of style with a roof wrap, that adds more time.
The basic steps The Waxman uses to create this new image for you include:
- Creating unique, custom commercial vehicle graphics
- Detailing your car
- Removing taillights, headlights and bumpers, then putting them back on
- Interior car detailing
- Applying the vinyl wrap
- Removing air pockets
A thorough, more professional look requires removing the doors, bumpers and lights. This adds a couple days to the process. The basic wrap doesn’t typically include this step.
How Much Can I Expect to Spend on a Commercial Car Wrap?
The average cost is less than paying for a high-quality paint job. The average cost varies between $3,000 and $10,000.
The particulars affecting the cost include:
- Basic wrap vs customized
- Size of vehicle; commercial wraps can go on anything from a Mini Cooper to a big rig semi-truck
- Type of wrap
- Number of vinyl layers
- Wrapping the whole vehicle versus a partial wrap
Most of the expense outside of materials is in labor. Luxury vehicles such as Porsches, BMWs, and Mercedes first undergo luxury car detailing and then typically cost more to wrap properly because they’re built in such a way that installers spend more time with body parts.
How Long Does a Commercial Car Wrap Last?
Car wraps aren’t permanent. The industry average for a commercial car wrap is three to five years.
How long they last depends on a few factors, such as:
- How well the vehicle was prepared before the wrap
- Quality of the installation
- Quality of the vinyl
- Ongoing care of the vehicle
