If you’ve ever considered getting a vehicle wrap on your car, whether for aesthetic purposes or advertising purposes, you’ve probably had a lot of questions running through your mind. One of the most common questions we get is, “how will my car’s paint job affect the car wrap?” Although you’re probably well aware of the benefits of vehicle wraps when it comes to protecting your car’s exterior, how does it fare in covering up damage that’s already there? Keep reading to learn more.

Wrapping A Vehicle That’s Damaged

Vehicle wraps have been used to protect the paint on sports cars to company fleet trucks and everything in between. However, the one thing that most of these vehicles have in common is that they were all damage-free before they were wrapped. That’s not to say that the vehicles didn’t have any imperfections — you’d be hard pressed to find a vehicle like this. However, for the most part, it’s safe to assume that if a vehicle is wrapped, the underlying paint is in good condition too.

If you try wrapping a vehicle with large dents or chips, it may be difficult or impossible to create a wrap that fits correctly and doesn’t start peeling off immediately. On your end, it will be a wasted investment and you’ll likely have to get it removed to fix the vehicle before a wrap is applied again.

What About Partial Wraps?

When you get your vehicle wrapped, you’ll be able to choose from either a full wrap or a partial wrap. If your vehicle is damaged, partial wraps should be fine as long it doesn’t go over an area with any significant damage. But if your partial wrap is used for advertising purposes like a company logo or branding, you’re probably going to want to get the vehicle fixed beforehand anyways. The condition of your vehicle will likely say just as much about your business as does the logo you put on it.

Why Choose Vinyl Vehicle Wraps?

Vehicle wraps allow you to change just about anything you want about your vehicle’s appearance aside from its shape and size. If changing its color is your only goal, you’ll be happy to know that vehicle wraps can be much more affordable than a standard professional paint job and you can even add textures to mimic different types of paint. And most importantly, vehicle wraps provide a layer of protection for underlying paint, especially against water, chemicals, and small chips.
