How long does a car wrap last?

My partner wants to wrap their car for the upcoming summer to change up the look of his car, but I don’t know if it’s worth the investment. We live in Florida, and we can get some harsh weather. How long does a car wrap usually last?

Car wraps can be a great way to personalize a vehicle and let you change up the appearance of your car.
If a wrap is installed and maintained properly, a car wrap can last up to five years. However, if the wrap is consistently exposed to harsh weather or extreme heat, it won’t last that long. If you have access to a garage, it will help the car wrap last longer. Additionally, some companies offer a ceramic coating atop the wrap—but that is an additional cost on top of the already pricey wrap.
Keep in mind, a car wrap shouldn’t be used to cover up an old paint job or scratches on your car as wraps will easily show all these imperfections.
If you’re in an area prone to extreme weather, it’s a good idea to look into comprehensive insurance. Comprehensive coverage will protect your car if it’s damaged due to an event like a hurricane or other natural disaster.
