CAR WRAPS MIAMI FAQ - MIAMI VEHICLE WRAP FREQUENT ANSWERS AND QUESTIONS -CAR WRAP PRICES - HOW MUCH IS A CAR WRAP
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO COLOR WRAP A VEHICLE IN MIAMI? HOW MUCH DOES A CAR WRAP COST?
There is no mathematical answer to it since there are a lot of variables that can affect the entire installation process. BUT before naming a few of those variables, we can share that the average turn around in the full color change car wrap industry varies from 3 to 6/7 business days.
Why so much difference? Well, that is when the variables come into play:
- Size of the car (2 doors - 4 doors - SUV...)
- Contrast between the original color of the car and film selected ( Example: white original paint car requesting black wrap will require a higher level of details)
- Complexity of the car. (All bumpers are different - wings - body kits - antennas - door handles - badges - air vents etc...)
- Level of installation and disassembling
- The amount of installers working at the same time
" It takes 6 months to build a Rolls Royce and 13 hours to build a toyota."
As a point of reference, a full color change car wrap cost will range from $2,500 to $4,000 in Miami at a professional and experienced car wrap shop
We friendly WARN uneducated customers who tell us they found someone offering them a car wrap for less than $2,000. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR - there are no cutting corners in this industry if you are looking for quality and professionalism
Please do your research and visit shops in person before dropping off your valuable vehicle and trusting anyone based on a cheaper price
HOW LONG DOES A VEHICLE WRAP LAST IN MIAMI?
The average expected car wrap life span is from 2 to 5 years. It all depends on where the vehicle is parked and the level of care the owner is giving to his vehicle. Miami is tuff on cars ( heat of the sun, UV, rain, tree sap, bird droppings, moisture, salt water...) A vehicle wrap is like a second skin added to your car but it does not mean you have to neglect it. It must be cleaned regularly. We recommend a quick detailer
Materials are getting more and more durable every year, but here is an average life span of a daily driver, from our experience with a garage kept vehicle
Gloss wraps: 3 to 5 years.
Satin and Matte wraps: 2 to 3 years
Remember, a vehicle wrap is not a permanent solution.
MY CAR IS A LEASE, CAN IT BE WRAPPED?
Of course!!! This is the beauty of a car wrap. It can be removed before returning your car to the dealer. Thing you cannot do with a custom paint job. It s not a permanent finish and will protect your paint finish until removed
WHAT KIND OF WARRANTY DO I GET?
Most car wrap manufacturer's warranty is up to 3 years.
As a professional shop, we offer 100% satisfaction warranty. We extend a complimentary checkup appointment to review how the car wrap behaved for a period of 30 days from the delivery of the vehicle. We will also replace at no cost any panels if there is a reasonable cause of action

DO I NEED TO PREP MY CAR BEFORE INSTALLATION?
We would greatly appreciate it if your vehicle is not covered in excessive dirt/debris. Our prep step is the most crucial in order to deliver the best and long lasting installation. Preparation can take up to several hours for a perfectly clean vehicle so it is very important for our work environment to be dust /dirt free to begin with. Please give a simple wash (no wax) either on the day or the day before dropping off your vehicle. Dirty vehicles will be charged an additional cleaning fee
IS DISASSEMBLING RECOMMENDED to achieve perfection
YES, we strive to make each installation as perfect as possible. This is the reason why, disassembling is needed in most installations to compare it to the level of a professional paint job. Black paint finish cars require the less amount of disassembling and are faster to install
WHAT IF MY CAR WRAP IS DAMAGED IN AN ACCIDENT?
You can contact your insurance to add your wrap to your policy. They will replace the wrap in case of an accident
WHY ARE YOUR PRICES HIGHER THAN OTHER INSTALLERS I HAVE CALLED?
We truly believe that you get what you pay for. Our company does not price match nor are we affected by companies that charge less. We work in a low volume environment and are not aiming to quantity but quality
We focus on providing the highest degree of installation excellence; thus, our pricing structure reflects this.
On the other hand, we are not mobile and have shop expenses including insurance, professional licenses... that most "installers" don't carry. Our shop is monitored 24/7 by cameras and we are able to work in the best environment possible adapted to car wrap installation. We have a proven track record with hundreds of full wraps since 2011.

CAN THE CAR WRAP BE WASHED?
The car wrap vinyl film is meant to be washed and normal car care is recommended.
Use hand wash and brushless car washes as much as you can
Inform your carwash that your car has a car wrap to avoid any incidents
AVOID AT ALL TIMES PRESSURE CLEANERS
We do not recommended it unless you wish to let us handle it with the professional car care products we use specifically for vehicle car wrap care.
We do highly recommend to always carry a quick detailer to immediately remove bird droppings and tree saps that will damage the vinyl and the paint if not removed immediately. Remember there is no warranty coverage for these
ABOUT CERAMIC COATING?
