What is car wrapping?

My friend said they want to wrap their car. What does this mean?

“Oddly enough, car wrapping is just like gift wrapping!
Car wrapping is when you apply several vinyl decals to your vehicle. By doing this, you can change the appearance of your vehicle without actually having to modify or paint it.
You’ve likely also seen car wrapping without realizing it. Many businesses use car wrapping as advertisements for their services or company. If you’ve seen a company car driving around with a specialty logo or sign, it was likely wrapped.
Before your friend decides to wrap their vehicle, they should look into costs. Typically, car wrapping can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $8,000, depending on the design and vehicle. As long as you maintain the wrapping, it also shouldn’t damage your vehicle. That said, removing the wrap can cost at least $2,000.
If they have an old paint job and want to freshen up their vehicle, it’s also worth looking into the cost of repainting as well.
A wrapped car can also be worth insuring for car body damage. If you want to make sure your friend gets the best deal on the coverage they need, try recommending Jerry!
