How durable is a car wrap?

I'm thinking about getting a wrap for my car. One of my friends had it done, and it looks great. I just want to know it will last. How durable is a car wrap?

Answer
A car wrap is a great way to make your car look new again or stand out. By wrapping your vehicle, you can get the look you want without it being permanent and you can change your mind later, unlike if you paint your car.
A well-maintained car wrap can last about five years. Otherwise, a year is typical. You can help the wrap last longer by:
  • Parking it in garages
  • Covering it with a car cover
  • Handwashing it
  • Only using microfiber towels when cleaning
  • Using waterless car wash items at home
Another way to protect your wrap is to get insurance that covers car body repair.
