  • Q: What's a Car Wrap?
  • A: The car wraps are temporary, self-adhesive, color printed film applied to vehicles of all kinds. It's car wash and sunlight proof, does no harm to bodywork, protects the car's finish, and can be removed at any time without damage. The application is so precise, it is often mistaken for a custom paint job. Some companies put only signs instead of wraps.

  • Q: What are the basic qualifications for a driver?
  • A: The driver must be over 18 (or over 21 for some companies), have no serious traffic violations or criminal record, submit to a background check. The vehicle must be free of body damage, kept clean inside and out, be in good running condition and maintained in accordance to the program terms and conditions. The drivers have to be prepared to meet the company's minimum miles per month requirement (about 1000 miles per month), provide proof of insurance and maintain insurance coverage during the length of the contract.

  • Q: What if the driver is uncomfortable with the type of advertising?
  • A: The drivers can always refuse to accept certain advertisements if they don't feel comfortable with it . The hiring company would not want to offend any of their drivers.

  • Q: How long does the advertisement stay on the vehicle?

  • Q: Will the companies tell the driver where to drive?
  • A: No, the driver will not be asked such thing. Most likely the company will only ask ahead of time that the driver tells them the areas he/she frequently goes and just inform them whenever his/her driving patterns change, if they ever do. For example, if the driver moves, change jobs, or get a new work schedule. By letting them know they can make sure to put the right ads on the vehicle.

  • Q: What happens if there is an accident or the wrap is damaged?
  • A: The driver must inform the hiring company as soon as possible so they can arrange for a replacement to be installed.
