The paint job of your vehicle, be it a car, truck, SUV, RV, motorhome, boat, or anything else, is one of the most important factors in not only its looks and the pride you take in it, but also its resale value.
It’s important that your vehicle’s paint be protected so that it stays looking its best from day 1 to day 1001. While the easy answer would be to just never take your vehicles out into the world, that defeats the entire reason a vehicle exists. Once out in the world, it seems that everything you encounter is conspiring to damage your vehicles paint job. Just a few of the things that can do damage, that you may not have ever thought of are:
These are just a few of the things that are out there waiting to eventually break down tour paint job and ruin your vehicles good looks. While it is true that your vehicles paint job has a clear coat protectant applied over it, and that when you wash your vehicle at most commercial car washes a “booster” to this protectant is applied, it is not enough many times. Waxing does help a bit as well, but again, it’s not enough to provide true protection. For the best level of protection, you need paint protection film on all of your vehicles. This clear rubber-like protective coating, once applied to the outside of your vehicle, keeps your paint looking like new against all of the above-mentioned things, and more. You may have heard that this can be a sizable investment, but the good news is that PPF doesn’t have to be expensive, but it can be. This is especially true when you think about the cost of having to have your vehicles repainted every few years. Here is a price guide for PPF for your vehicles.
Paint protection film cost is mostly based on the size of the vehicle being covered. Most mid-sized to large cars and trucks can run between $500 to $2000 for coverage. While this may seem like a lot, think about how much it would cost to have your entire car professionally repainted with a high-quality OEM paint every few years for the duration of your ownership of the vehicle. You can see that the average of 10 years of good looks and higher resale value that you get from the investment you make in PPF makes a lot of sense.
PPF pricing can be different depending on the type of vehicle that you want to get protected. There are different types of protective film used for water bound vehicles than are used for road-bound ones. Thicker, more durable film may be used on an RV or touring bus that is mainly used on highways and interstates, than on a family sedan that is only driven on city streets. The type of vehicle, and subsequently the type of film product used can make a difference of 20%-40% to the price of the PPF installation job.
Just like with any other type of vehicle film application, be is vehicle wraps or window tint, PPF pricing is dependent largely on the shop that does the job for you. While there are some shops out there that will offer lower prices or faster turnaround times, ask yourself how they are able to do this.
Usually, it’s because they are using a lower quality PPF product, or that they are using the thinnest possible product for all of their jobs. We only use the highest quality products for our jobs and are proud to say that we feel this is the best product line for paint protection film in the industry. We also use only the industry standard installation procedure to ensure that the application is successful. We also go one step further though, and triple check everything multiple times along the way to ensure that you get only a perfectly applied PPF surface when you come to pick up your car.
