Q: How do you wrap a vehicle?
A: The vinyl material is applied to the vehicle, with cuts to the material coming after the application – the actual process is extremely precise, requires a lot of experience and is difficult to explain in writing.
Q: Are vehicle wraps applied to windows?
A: Yes, but only rear side and rear windows. Window wraps are printed on perforated vinyl that allows the driver to see through the material.
Q: What if the company information on my wrap changes, can it be replaced?
A: Yes. Graphics, logos, and phone numbers (or any part of the design) can be changed, reprinted and re-installed as overlays on the car wrap.
Q: Is it possible to finance my wrap?
A: Unfortunately, not yet.
Q: Can a vehicle wrap be removed?
A: Yes. The vehicle wrap can be removed. However, attempting to remove it yourself may cause damage to your paint. We suggest having Elite Fleet Vinyl de-install your vehicle wrap as our installation experts are best equipped for this task.
Q: Will the wrap damage my paint?
A: No. A car wrap when applied and removed correctly, does not damage your car’s OEM paint. In fact, it protects it.
Q: Is there a guarantee on the wrap?
A: We guarantee all of our vehicle wraps for 3 years, though we expect them to last 5 years plus.
Q: Will you wrap a leased vehicle?
A: Yes. Since a wrap can be removed without damaging a vehicle, there are no restrictions against wrapping a leased vehicle.
Q: How long will a wrap last on my vehicle?
A: You can expect your wrap to last 3-5 years or longer, just be careful about high pressure washing.
Q: How do I care for my wrap?
A: It is best to hand wash your vehicle after it has been wrapped. Avoid power washing and do not use an ice-scraper. Brushing windows and the use of a rear defroster will cause no damage to your window wrap.
Q: What’s the difference between a partial and full wrap?
A. The size of the wrap (partial or full) simply refers to the amount of the vehicle that is covered by the wrap.
Q: How long does it take to wrap a vehicle?
A: Our wraps are typically completed in 1-7 days, depending on the size of the vehicle and complexity of the wrap. Time estimates are given to our customers prior to the installation process.
