Before you get your car wrapped with vinyl, ask these questions to the professional you hire:
Find out if the shop uses brand name or private label vinyl. Choose a shop that uses name brands like Arlon, Avery Dennison, Oracal, 3M, or MACtac. Each of these companies invests their resources to develop superior products, tests them extensively, and guarantees their performance. Private label or off-brand vinyl might be less expensive, but there is not guarantee that the vinyl is high quality, consistent, or high performance.
To a lot of people, vinyl is just vinyl. But there are actually a lot of different kinds of vinyl out there: vinyl for cars, vinyl for windows, vinyl for signage, etc. The person you hire to apply the vinyl on your car needs to use vinyl that’s appropriate for vehicles. Generally, this is cast vinyl. Other kinds of vinyl, like calendared or sign vinyl, are designed for flat surfaces and shouldn’t be used on cars. Be aware of the type of vinyl being used by the professional.
When it comes to vinyl vehicle wraps, experience matters. Wrap installation takes skill and it takes time to develop these kinds of skills. Installation specialists spend years working with vinyl and they have an innate sense for what works and what doesn’t work. This applies to the kind of vinyl being used, the design of the vinyl, and the type of car being worked on.
Before you get a vinyl vehicle wrap installed on your car, ask your car insurance provider if the wrap will be covered. How the car insurance provider views vinyl vehicle wraps is specific to your car insurance plan. Every car insurance company is different. In many cases, car insurance companies view vinyl vehicle wraps as accessories, because they’re not a part of the vehicle and can be removed. Being an accessory, this means vinyl vehicle wraps are not automatically covered by every car insurance plan. Tell your car insurance company you are installing a vinyl vehicle wrap to your car before you do so. Then, if necessary, list the vinyl vehicle wrap on your car insurance policy and include the replacement value.
