When to Replace a Vehicle Wrap

A vehicle wrap is a great way to make your vehicle eye-catching. Whether you need a consistent look for your fleet or small signs, your vehicle will stand out and help you get in the game of building your business. 

However, wraps don’t last forever. How do you know when you need a new vehicle wrap? There are a lot of signs to look for. Here are a few times when you should definitely contact us for a new car wrap.

You Were in a Car Accident

Car accidents are a hassle in a variety of ways, but getting the damage to your car fixed is one of the biggest headaches. Hopefully it was a minor scrape and everyone is OK, but you still have to think about how to fix the vehicle wrap. 

Often, you can have professionals fix vehicle a wrap, or have the wrap replaced only on the damaged panel(s), which saves time and money. However, there are times when it’s better to get the whole wrap replaced. 

Once the body damage to your vehicle is repaired, bring it into us for a new wrap and we’ll get you back in the game as quickly as possible.

The Wrap is Faded

The more your vehicle is exposed to the sun the quicker the quality of the image will be impacted. In Arkansas, we get a lot of sun. This means that if you don’t take steps to protect your vehicles, your vehicle wrap may fade and need to be replaced.

What can you do? Parking in the shade as much as possible is a simple thing, but it can add years to the life of your car wrap. If you have the ability to park fleet vehicles in a garage or under an awning, take advantage of it!

Once the design is faded, it’s time for a new car wrap. Contact us to schedule an appointment and even review updated designs.

A Peeling Vehicle Wrap

When you have peeling vinyl wrap, it’s time to get a new one. Peeling happens due to age or because dirt gets behind the wrap. 

Be careful when you wash your vehicles not to use a high-power washer at close range. Doing so can damage the vehicle wrap. It’s best to wash by hand using a non-abrasive cleaner and soft rag or sponge. Avoid using strong solvents and rinse the vehicle thoroughly after washing.

You also want to avoid car washes with automated brushes, as those can lift loose edges and cause peeling, or may scratch the surface and dull the design. 

If you notice peeling, it’s time to make an appointment for Gametime Wraps to help you with a new vehicle wrap. 

You Want to Update the Design

Times change and so do design trends. You definitely don’t want to be driving around in a vehicle with an outdated design. It tells prospects and customers that you don’t keep up – which can impact their view of your business.

Instead, when you feel a need to update the design, opt for a new car wrap. Work with Gametime to review the most up-to-date options and determine what works best for your vehicle or fleet.

You may also have changes to your business branding or your products and services. These types of changes generally mean it’s time to replace the wrap. 

The Wrap is Stained

Your cars are your company’s ambassadors, so you want them to look their best. Unfortunately daily wear and tear can result in problems that aren’t easily washed off.

If you have a spill on the car that you don’t clean immediately, you may find that the wrap is now stained. This may also happen if sap or insects are not cleaned from a car right away. 

When there are stains on your vehicle wrap, it’s time to get it replaced. You need vehicles that put your brand in the best light possible!
