Chevrolet Express 2010 Full Van Wrap – Vinyl Wrap Toronto
Wrapping is like a muscle, the more you practice the better you get at it. However, there always comes a time when you think a job is easier than it seems but it ends up taking more time than usual. Our returning client from “RockBottom Construction” recently bought this Chevrolet Express 2010 van. Although it was new to him, it has been around the block for a lot longer.
The client wanted to use the Chevrolet Express 2010 to advertise their business with a custom-designed full wrap. Only we didn’t have to design the wrap this time because it was an exact replica of the wrap we had previously done for one of their vans. We just simply had to print the vinyl without any sort of modification or resizing since both vans were basically identical. All in all, it seemed like a very easy and quick job. We used quality printable vinyl offered by Avery Dennison for the wrap. At Vinyl Wrap Toronto we only use the best quality material by Avery Dennison & 3M. We believe the quality and durability of a service is the key to customer satisfaction.
That is where we were proven wrong. Not because of our fault, but other complications. As we started to lay the vinyl on the Chevrolet Express 2010 it ripped off a huge chunk of paint from the van and BOOM! What was nice and easy became an unpleasant situation. Upon investigation, we found out that the van had gone through a refinish of the paint before the client bought the vehicle. And clearly, it wasn’t a job well done.
We organized with the client to send the Chevrolet Express 2010’s paint to be taken care of properly. By the time we got that done, this job had already surpassed the usual amount of time our experienced installers take for a full van wrap. Once we got the refinished vehicle back, we did our job with the same enthusiasm and precision as always.
Tips for when you’re getting a second-hand vehicle wrapped
Since the Chevrolet Express 2010 has been on the roads for a decade, it was bound to go through some touch-ups. So, as a buyer, always make sure to ask the necessary questions from the seller before you decide to get it wrapped. Questions like:
- Has the car gone through a custom paint job or any type of refinishing?
- If it has, then from where and what material/paint was used?
- Has the vehicle been previously wrapped or decaled?
- If yes, then from where and what material was used?
- How long has it been wrapped?
These are some essential questions to ask your seller before buying a vehicle that you want to get wrapped. Without the required information, you may end up in a similar situation to the Chevrolet Express 2010.
