Getting to know the factors that can impact the overall cost of wrapping a car can help you set aside the best possible budget for your car wrapping needs. At Wrap Guys, they understand how frustrating it can be when unexpected costs keep piling up. That is why their team always takes the time to get to know your specific wants and needs in order to provide accurate quotes on all of their vehicle wrap services.

Things That Can Impact the Cost of Vehicle Wraps

Some of the different things that can impact the overall cost of a vehicle wrap are:

Vinyl Vehicle Wrap Size

One of the biggest factors that goes into determining the price of a vinyl wrap is the size of the vehicle. Certain vehicles, such as trucks and SUVs, will often cost more to wrap than smaller, compact cars due to the amount of surface area that needs to be wrapped. Before quoting a price, Wrap Guys will take the time to determine the square footage of the vehicle, including the sides, hood, back, and roof, in order to accurately calculate the amount of material needed to create a custom vehicle wrap.

Type of Vinyl Wrap Material

The type and quality of the vinyl wrap material can also drastically affect the overall cost of a vehicle wrap. In most cases, car wraps are made from high-quality materials like 3M vinyl, which is designed to last for as long as possible, even with extreme sun exposure; however, since not everyone is looking to have a vinyl vehicle wrap that will last for a long period of time, there are lower quality materials that can be used to create a custom car wrap. Lower quality vinyl materials can help save money upfront, but they may end up costing you in the long run, especially if they do not last as long as you expect.

Complexity of the Car Wrap Installation

Since installing a vinyl wrap on a flat surface, such as a trailer or a cargo van, is much simpler than installing a wrap on a vehicle with complex curves, such as a Mini Cooper, the overall price of a custom car wrap may change depending on how complex it is to wrap your particular vehicle. Complex installations also tend to take more time to complete, causing the car wrap company to spend more resources on one project.
