How do you take a car wrap off?

What’s the best way to take a car wrap off? It’s looking kind of faded, and I’m ready to get rid of it. I’d rather not spend the money for someone else to take it off.

Taking off a car wrap can be a long process, but it shouldn’t be too hard! All you need to do is peel off the film. Of course, that might be tricky since the vinyl is backed by a sticky adhesive. Follow these steps to make the wrap removal process as easy as possible:
  • Start by heating the surface at one of the seams.
  • When the adhesive starts loosening, slowly pull the wrap back at a 45-degree angle.
  • Use both hands to avoid injuring yourself or scratching your car.
If this process seems like a little too much work, you should consider leaving it to a professional. Getting a wrap professionally removed could cost thousands of dollars, but it can save you loads of time. At the end of the day, it’s a question of what you value more—your time or your money.
