A trim wrap is a thin and narrow piece of film that is added to the car window trims in order to improve the appearance and to protect the paint. Adding such a film is a good way to make your vehicle look slightly more interesting, without having to spend a lot of money on a full-car wrap or repaint.

But the film is not just for design, it also protects the original paint against wear and tear. The big advantage is that a trim wrap can be removed at any time in order to return to the original look. Keep on reading to learn more and get your window trim wrap applied by a professional.

  • Long life and UV durability (no fading or discoloration)

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to wrap car trims?

Usually, the price for trim wrapping a sedan or coupe is $230 and for an SUV, wagon, or pickup it’s $270. The price may be different for very large SUVs and exotic cars. It depends on various factors, such as the size and shape of your vehicle, the amount of wrapping film we need to use, and the amount of hours needed to apply it.

How much does trim wrap last?

A quality material can last for 3 to 5 years, depending on the external factors it has to endure. A film laying in the hot sun for extended periods of time will obviously last less.
