Tip 4: Your customers should avoid leaving their cars in direct sunlight, particularly during the summer. UV rays are dangerous and can ruin the vinyl on their vehicles. When the cars are not in use, they should be stored in a garage or in the shade. If possible, encourage your customers to use a protective over laminate, as it will protect the wrap of the vehicle from the sun’s harmful UV rays.


These primary care tips can ensure that your customers have a wrap that can stand the test of time. It is of paramount importance that you provide not only a quality wrap but quality advice as well. This makes all the difference when trading with customers.
