How Much Does it Cost to Wrap a Car?

When you decide on a car wrap, you are essentially encasing it in several vinyl decals, placed on the body panel to enhance its appearance. This makes the paint job hardier and protects it from damage especially in dirt and rocky areas around Cache County. There are many car wrap colors and styles available, so you can find one that matches your personality and preferences. 


So, how much does it cost to wrap a car? The short answer is it depends on your body style. Compact cars and trucks typically cost less, while luxury sports cars and SUVs can cost more.

Car Wrap Costs 

The biggest chunk of car wrap costs stems from the labor involved in the application. Cars with smooth, flat surfaces, for instance, are easier to work with, whereas models with many curves and facets may be more difficult for installation. Below are some ballpark figures for the cost of a car wrap, based on body style:

  • Compact Car/Coupe: Starts at around $2,000
  • Sedan: Starts at around $3,000
  • Compact Crossover: Starts at around $3,500
  • Trucks: $1,500 to $5,000
  • Full-Size SUV: Starts at around $4,000
  • Luxury Sports Car: Starts at around $5,000

How Long Does a Car Wrap Last?

A professionally installed car wrap should last for seven years or so. Opt for higher-quality vinyl for your car wrap to last longer. That’s because thinner material is subject to more wear and tear from rocks and gravel or just everyday driving to Box Elder County. Help your car wrap to last longer by:

  • Having the car wrap professionally applied 
  • Washing your car routinely to protect the vinyl from dirt and grime, which can fade the color and any graphics 
  • Keeping your car out of direct sunlight and parking in a garage or shaded area when you can

Can You Wrap a Car Yourself?

While it may be more expensive, relying on the professionals to wrap your car is your best bet. If you’re ready to take care of this process yourself, then you’ll need to know what tools to use.
