As of recent, people are starting to invest more and more money in their cars. Due to this fact, car owners are looking to personalise their cars exterior to make it unique and stand out from the rest of the cars on the road. If you are looking to do the same, there are a couple of choices you have: a paint job or a car wrap. Both options have advantages and I’ll explain them below, in order to help you decide which option is the best choice for you.
No doubt about it, a professional paint job looks incredible. A lot of professional car painters will recommend bespoke paint colours for your car that you won’t be able to find on a factory-made car. However, a paint job won’t protect your car from the elements nor scrapes and scratches. To add to that, a non-OEM (original equipment manufacturer) will devalue the car by a minimum of 20% furthermore, leased car cannot be painted as it must be returned with the cars OEM paint. Just to top it off, the paint jobs are a lot more expensive that car wraps.
Car wrap is a very thin, carefully applied layer of vinyl that covers the car. Most of the time, people mistake car wrapping for paint jobs. Now a days, car wrapping is becoming increasingly popular among car lovers because it allows you to completely change the look of your car. The best bit is that it protects the paint underneath from exposure to the elements, scratches and stone chips. Last but not least, it’s completely reversible. If you don’t like it in the future, get it removed and have something new put on.
