Ever been stuck in traffic, bored to tears, and found yourself looking at the vehicles surrounding you? You may admire a new model, read the bumper stickers on the vehicles in front of you, or check out the eye-snagging vehicle wrap beside you.
Now think about how many times you’ve done that over the years. It makes you wonder just how many times others do the same thing.
When you create vehicle wraps for your business (a.k.a. transit advertising) you have local advertising planted right in the heart of your community. And better yet, vehicle wraps will continue advertising for you, even after the job’s done. It doesn’t matter if you’ve clocked in or not.
When wraps are done properly, they naturally attract people’s attention to your brand and its message. And with very little effort on your part.
Take a look at some of the other reasons commercial wraps can be beneficial to businesses:
Solidify Your Brand’s Image
When your vehicle has a commercial vehicle wrap, it's drumming up business 24/7. You’re generating recognition and familiarity. Every time you drive around your community. When potential customers need the services your company provides, they’re more likely to contact you. Because you're at the top of their mind.
Give your business an added boost with commercial vehicle wraps.
More Popular With The Public
Unlike email campaigns or junk mail stuffed in your mailbox, a consumer can choose to read a vehicle wrap (or not) without feeling invaded. Any time a customer decides to read your ad on their own, uninterrupted, they’re much more positive about the message and experience.
Because they weren't forced - they chose to be a part of it.
Arm Your Vehicle With Advertisements
An astute business person is always looking for ways to protect their investments, and this includes the vehicles in their fleet. Vehicle wraps can, in many cases, help protect a paint job, amongst other things. It can lessen the effects of door dings, freeway gravel, paint chips, and other forms of damage.
If damage does occur, a simple spot repair can usually be taken care of by a professional installer, rather than an expensive trip to the body shop.
What Are The Options For Commercial Vehicle Wraps?
Now that you’re more familiar with the value in getting your company cars wrapped, here are the different choices available to you:
1. Totally Wrapped
A full vehicle wrap is going to put your message across the majority or entirety of your vehicle. Doors, hood, trunk, windows... you name it. Your whole vehicle can morph into a mobile advertising machine.
It doesn’t matter if you have a car, truck, van, bus, boat or other vehicle wrap, your traveling billboard is sure to nab attention for your brand!
2. Partially Wrapped
You can choose to wrap certain parts of your vehicle and leave others untouched. No problem. 3M Certified UASG Installers will work with you to nail down your vision and establish your desired budget. That way they can deliver results that are sure to wow you!
3. Window Wrapped
If you’re not looking for a total vehicle wrap job, you may want to consider simply wrapping your windows. Our certified 3M installers will often turn to special perforated vinyl film. This allows full vision from the inside but appears as a solid, vivid vehicle graphic from the outside.
Are Commercial Wraps Right For Your Business?
Let's talk about the benefits of commercial vehicle wrap best practices. Vehicle wraps usually last several years. So just like many digital marketing campaigns, they’re a relatively affordable form of advertising. This makes it a great option for small and large companies alike.
Your budget stays on track while your visibility and ROI has the chance to increase. The following industries are just a few examples of the many local businesses that have benefited. Many experience increased customer traffic after utilizing vehicle wraps:
Home Service Companies
Pretty much every home service company out there uses vehicle wrap advertising. Because a fleet with wraps advertises the company's name, number, logo and brand as a whole, throughout their sales territory, every day. Here's a few home service companies that use wraps:
- Roofing businesses
- Solar energy consultants
- Telecom technicians
- Residential cleaning companies
- Pool & fountain care companies
- Commercial cleaning companies
- Plumbing companies
- General contractors
- Handy men and women
- HVAC companies
- And more
Just put yourself in their shoes. Your vehicle graphics are on display in each and every neighborhood you perform a service call in. This gives neighbors and potential customers brand recognition. They’re more likely to call you if they know their neighbor uses and trusts your services.
Food truck wraps seem to be more popular than ever. There's ice cream trucks, taco trucks, gourmet burgers and sandwiches trucks, and so much more. These days most mobile restaurants feature creative and visually appealing commercial wraps. It’s part of the appeal! And it attracts more customers. By installing a unique design, customers can quickly spot your one-of-a-kind wrap and visit your location for a tasty meal.
Your company will give off a more professional and safe feeling. When your fleet features custom vehicle wraps with your logo and business name, that's inevitable. Because customers feel more secure knowing who’s at their door with packages.

The most obvious companies that need wraps are the ones with a fleet, like home service companies. But many others use them as well. Many organizations provide their employees with a company car. And that’s the perfect opportunity.
Insurance companies do this. They give their employees a car to drive to and from meetings (oftentimes in or near the prospective client’s home). They’ll wrap the car to spread their brand throughout their area, and to advertise their services.
Health Care Organizations
The same idea applies to the health industry, but instead of company cars, it’s mobile medical vehicles. (Home health care vehicles are one example.) Medical professionals use these vehicles to drive to the houses of the elderly or sick people who have a hard time or simply can’t get out of the house.
Blood donation vans and buses, as well as mobile dental vehicles and ee clinics are a few more examples of vehicles in the healthcare industry that use wraps. Most healthcare organizations are for-profit businesses that need to market their services like any other company. So wraps naturally come in very handy.
How Does The Wrap Get Designed?
Our 3M Certified UASG Installers use precise templates to create commercial vehicle wraps. This allows them to incorporate your desired theme and colors to your wrap.
Your budget is also a top priority. Our certified wrap installers design your wrap to meet your unique needs and specifications.
What’s The Commercial Installation Process Like?
While a lot of DIY projects can be figured out online, vehicle wraps shouldn’t be one of them. Unless you’re a professional, there’s too much room for error. You don’t want to risk devaluing your brand image (or your vehicle) with a shoddy vehicle wrap job.
Our professional installers will prepare your vehicle’s surface before applying any graphics. They will inspect and possibly fix dents, remove rust, or other imperfections to ensure good adhesion.
Then several installers work together to stretch, wrap, and heat up the vinyl while smoothing out any bubbles. The same team will carefully inspect the vinyl wrap before you see it to make sure no flaws are found.
What Maintenance Is Needed For A Vehicle Wrap?
Giving your wrap proper care will enable it to look its best and for the longest length of time possible.
The main way you can accomplish this is by keeping your commercial vehicle wrap as clean as possible. Be sure to use a mild detergent that contains no alcohol with a microfiber or other non-abrasive towel. Perform a water rinse, followed by an air dry or use a clean microfiber towel to dry it off. Any tar or bird splats can be spot cleaned after they occur.
We also recommend keeping the vehicle wrap out of direct sunlight as much as possible to keep those colors popping.
