Learning about whether or not you can wrap a leased car will help you determine if wrapping your work vehicle is in your best interests.

Things to Consider Before Wrapping a Leased Vehicle

Before wrapping a vehicle that you have leased for your business, you should:

Read Your Lease

Since every vehicle is different, it is important to review the lease for your particular vehicle to see if there is anything in it that prohibits you from adding a vinyl graphic or vehicle wrap on the car. Confirming that you are able to wrap the vehicle ahead of time will prevent you from violating the terms of your agreement.

Verify that the Vehicle Was Not Freshly Painted

While paint may appear dry on the surface, vehicles that have recently been painted may not be fully cured. Paint that is not completely cured can prevent the vinyl wrap from properly adhering to the vehicle. Make sure to check with the dealer to find out if the car was recently painted and how long you would have to wait for the paint to fully cure before applying a wrap.

Find Out if the Graphics Have a Warranty Period

High-quality vehicle wraps and graphics can look great long after their warranty period has ended; however, while the wrap might look great on the surface, some vinyl wraps can become more challenging to remove after a long period of time (usually after about 10 years). Vinyl wraps that have become more challenging to remove may require scraping and are best handled by a professional.

Use High-Quality Vinyl Wrap Materials

One of the best ways to protect your leased car from being damaged due to a car wrap is to ensure that your vehicle wrap is being made with high-quality vinyl wrap products, such as 3M vinyl or Avery cast vinyl. Doing so will ensure that your vehicle’s underlying paint will not only be protected from minor dings and scratches but also that the wrap will not leave any damage when it is removed.
