Be Sure To Avoid These 3 Vehicle Wrap Mistakes

Posted on: 12 November 2015

If you own your own small business, one of the best ways to advertise your business is to equip all of your company vehicles with a custom vehicle wrap. That way, when your vehicles are on the road, they are doing double duty advertising for your company as well. Here are the top three mistakes you should avoid when you apply a custom wrap to your business fleet.

Mistake #1: Applying A Wrap To A Rusty Vehicle

One of the biggest mistakes you can make is applying the vehicle wrap to a rusty vehicle. If there is rust on your vehicle, the wrap will not stick properly to your vehicle. It will peel and crack sooner than it would if your vehicle was rust-free.

Removing any rust before you apply a wrap to your vehicle will ensure that the body of your vehicle lasts longer and that the warp you apply lasts longer as well.

If you want to really get your money's worth of advertising out of your vehicle wraps, your business vehicles need to be rust free.

Mistake #2: Apply The Wrap In Non-Temperature Controlled Environment

It is also important that the vehicle wraps you purchase are installed in a temperature-controlled environment. If your wraps are applied inside of a workshop that is really hot or really cold, problems could develop.

Extremely cold or hot temperatures can cause the wrap to shrink or bubble up. Extreme temperatures where the moisture levels are high can also cause bubbles to develop. This can cause the warp to go on unevenly; your wrap will not look as aesthetically pleasing and may not last as long as if it was applied in a temperature-controlled environment.

Mistake #3: Not Getting A Warranty

Finally, you should always say "yes" to the warranty when purchasing a vehicle wrap. If the wrap gets faded, peels or cracks within a certain time frame, the warranty will allow you to have the wrap replaced for free. The warranty for the wrap often covers any issues with the installation and application of the wrap as well. 

Vehicle wraps can be a great way to advertise your small business; just make sure that your vehicles are in good shape and that you have a professional, like those at Collision-One, Inc., apply the wrap in a temperature controlled environment. You should also make sure you purchase wraps from a company that offers you a warranty that will cover wear and tear for a couple of years.
