Maintaining your car bodywork can at times be expensive. Resprays for your vehicle – whether you’re after a different colour or need to repair dings and dents – can often spiral into their thousands of pounds. These days we’re looking for quicker and cheaper alternatives and car wraps are becoming a viable solution for car owners looking for a new appearance. We’ll delve into the reasons why you should consider car wraps in 2019.
Car wraps are quicker than a respray
Sometimes a full body respray of a new colour for your car can take weeks to fully complete after several coats. That also means that your car can be out of action during this time. However, the average time for a full car wrap to be applied to your vehicle is just a matter of days, which can be extremely useful if you’re looking for a quick transformation.
Cost of car wraps
Paint resprays can vary in cost substantially depending on the effect and colour. Many are likely to be several thousand for a complete paint job, going into tens of thousands of pounds if you’re extremely serious about the paintwork applied to your car. In comparison, car wraps are more cost-effective and in the long-run should you need repairs or change your mind the associated costs are much more palatable.
Resale benefits of car wraps
Thinking of selling your car to upgrade in a year’s time but want a new look in the meantime? Well car wraps can offer that quick fix without being permanent, meaning the re-sale value of your car will be better than if you used paint, since the new owner can simply unwrap the car’s bodywork film to bring it back to it’s original colour.
Protect your paintwork with a car wrap
Stone chips and debris on the road can slowly damage your car’s paintwork over time. Even the most careful driver will be subject to bodywork dents, scratches and UV degradation to the paintwork. However, car wraps can actually help to protect the original paintwork with their film layer and if it gets damaged over time, it’s quicker and cheaper to replace – you can even just replace the areas worst affected.
