Car wrapping is very popular in America, and is quickly making its appearance in the UK and Ireland. Although there aren’t many companies acting as go-betweens yet or sites offering the service, there are still a few to choose from and this shouldn’t put you off if you aren’t in the Uk and are determined enough! Just pop round your local business premises and offer the service yourself if you don’t want GPS tracking and so on, go on – you aren’t THAT lazy 🙂
Ad wrapping is perfectly acceptable for buses, Taxi’s, hire cars and even aeroplanes – so it’s really nothing new. The adhesive vinyl film applied to the car can be easily removed when required without damaging your paint work.
Car sales and repairs garages are most likely to go for this type of advertising, as are local Take-Away restaurants, so try them first before you end up with haemorrhoids treatment Ads plastered all over your rear end (so to speak!).
If your car is clean, reliable and in a reasonable condition you could expect to be paid between £100 and £225 per month to have car wrap advertising, depending on how much of the car you are willing to get wrapped and how much driving you do.
