The car wrapping industry now has a revenue of $4 billion USD per year.
More than a trend, vehicle wrapping offers a way to protect your investment at a low cost. But do you know how useful it can be to transport a vehicle?
If you are transporting a car, a wrap can help protect it. Read on as we discuss why you should consider car protection film for your vehicle.
1. It Is Glueless
Our car protection film is the only glueless wrap on the market. This ensures that no residue is left when it is removed from the car. Plastic wrap for cars can provide a strong, durable layer to use during transportation of the vehicle.
2. Reduces the Need for Washing
It can be a constant battle to keep a car looking shiny and new during transportation. If it stands on a forecourt for a period of time, paint begins to fade. This requires more time on washing, waxing, and adding polishes to retain the look.
When you don’t wash your car acidic substances can corrode it. Squashed bugs and bird droppings can corrode the surface, even in the short time the car is transported.
With automotive protective film, it works to repel dirt, dust, and mud that adhere to the bodywork. Should anything stay on, it can be removed with a quick wipe instead of a full wash. This does not mean your car will never need washing, but it will cut down your car care maintenance schedule drastically before and after transportation.
3. Repels Damage
Transport wrap auto wrap won’t give protection from large objects or major collisions. What it will do is protect the vehicle from the small dents and chips that can occur when it is moved.
These are an aesthetic annoyance, but they can also be extremely dangerous. Any breach leaves the chassis open to the elements. If they are not repaired, then it can cause issues with the structure of the vehicle.
No one wants to buy a new car and see it damaged. An automotive film can keep it new all the way to the customer’s doorstep.
The glueless protective car wrap comes in 5 layer PE/PP copolymer. Providing heat resistance, it also gives 6 months of UV protection. It protects your vehicle from harmful chemicals such as oil, fluids from other cars, road splash, squashed insects, and bird droppings.
4. Made in the US
Our car shipping protection film is made in the US. This means by using it you are supporting US manufacturing and labor. Your film will not have been flown around the world or created in bad conditions.
5. Protects During Transportation
The purpose of new car transport wrap is to protect a brand new car on its journey from the factory to the dealership, or from there to your driveway. Auto transport wrap prevents any dirt or detritus from ruining the new-car appearance.
If you are buying a new vehicle, then you can ask if it has auto transport wrap on during the journey. This will ensure you are not paying for a car that has already been damaged or contains imperfections. It is also very valuable if you are a car dealer, and want to move large vehicles around without any damage to their surface.
6. Has Passed Tests for Durability
There is a test for protective film known as the GM Jacksonville test. This subjects a vehicle in protective film to sandblasting, rock chipping, and other hazards it may encounter during transportation such as low hanging branches, rock salts, and loose gravel. Our transport wrap passed it with flying colors.
7. Prevents Paint Fade
Even in the short space of time between having a car delivered and selling it, UV rays from the sun can dull the color and vibrancy of the paint job. The more time your car spends in the sun, the more severe this will be.
UV protection in our film prevents that. Six months of protection come with the film, so even if it is left standing after transportation you don’t need to worry about its appearance.
8. Comes in a Range of Sizes
You may be wrapping one car or one hundred. We can supply our automotive wrap in three different roll sizes. This can cut down on waste and save money if you have a lot, or a little to wrap.
9. It Is Easy to Remove
A time may come when you want to remove the wrap. When this occurs, car protection wrap is very easy to get off.
The glueless film adheres to the surface of your car easily. Many people worry that removing this will damage the paint itself, because of how well it sticks to the vehicle. This is far from the truth.
Simply peel away the protective coating gently. If you are really worried, then visit a specialist who will do it for you.
Our automotive protective film includes a free utility knife with every roll. Be careful not to scratch the surfaces when you use this to remove your film.

It is possible to apply car protection film yourself before transportation, though this is not advised. The correct tools, a dust-free environment for the application, and experience all make it much better.
