Does vehicle wrapping cause damage?
Applying a vehicle wrap to your vehicle will not damage your paintwork, it actually acts as a protective film. However, if the paintwork on your vehicle has stone chips or abrasions before the wrap, this could cause paintwork to be pulled off when wrap is removed. This is the reason we ask that any stone chips, abrasions or rust patches are repaired before the vehicle wrap can be completed.
Does the vehicle need prepping before wrapping?
Yes, we ask that all vehicles are cleaned and free from dust and polish or wax before we can complete a vehicle wrap.
Is it easy to remove a vehicle wrap?
A vehicle wrap is made to withstand a range of weather conditions for a certain amount of years, which means the longer the wrap is on the vehicle the more difficult it becomes to remove.

If you have a full or partial vehicle wrap you will need to inform both the DVLA and also your vehicle insurance provider.
How do I wash my vehicle when it’s been wrapped?
When your vehicle has been wrapped it is best to hand wash your vehicle. You can use a jet wash, however ensure you keep a fair distance from the vehicle to ensure the power of the jet wash does not damage the wrap. There are specialised cleaners that we stock for cleaning vehicle wraps, as you must be aware of the chemicals you use.
