You’ve probably noticed these days that more fleet vehicles like service vans, trucks and cars are being wrapped with eye-catching graphics. Vehicle wraps have become more common and utilized, because the technology to create the wraps offers more options and efficiencies than ever. The result; better looking wraps with an affordable price point.But wrapping a vehicle is not an easy process. It requires extensive knowledge and training, and the right facility. When you are shopping for the right company to wrap your vehicle, here’s some valuable questions to ask:
How long have they been around?
A startup may be just learning the business, and while the only way to gain experience is to do the work, let them work on someone else’s vehicles first. The value and quality you receive from an experienced installer outweighs any discount price you get from one that is getting started or lacks experience.
What does their installation environment look like?
If it’s the installer’s garage, or a building until very recently was vacant looking for a tenant, chances are they are not the professionals you need to do the work. And stay
away from “mobile installers”. To do the job right, the conditions must be optimum for application, and being mobile can in no way guarantee that.
Do they have a portfolio of their work?
Check out their website. Is it professional? Do they have a gallery that shows previous work? Who have they done wraps for? Are those customers well-known businesses? Calling on some of these businesses for a reference and asking if you can see their wrapped vehicles is probably the best way to determine the quality of work.
How are the designs incorporated?
When checking on their previous work, how well do the designs reflect the brand of the vehicle’s company? Are they aesthetically appealing, eye-catching designs? How much did the installer work with the company to develop the design?
What materials do they use?
A good installer will use either Avery, 3M, VViViD or hexis cast film. Anything else isn’t up to industry standard. And of course their printer should be state of the art.
Do they have a guarantee?
If an installer is using the right material, and prepared the vehicle correctly properly prior to application, then there’s no reason that a wrap can’t last for 3-5 years, depending on the environment and usage conditions. A reputable installer will stand behind his work and offer a guarantee to fix or replace any wrap damage.
