How does vinyl wrapping guarantee a fool proof marketing strategy? We called upon our friends at MidCoast Customs for some professional insight on this latest marketing trend. They provided us with crucial points that vinyl wrapping encompasses in the marketing world.
Marketing Benefits Of Vinyl Wraps
Endless Audience- Think about it..your audience is literally endless. Anywhere you travel, from the grocery store down the street to San Diego to enjoy the beach, your vehicle is a rolling advertisement.
Placement- Probably the least aggressive way to advertise your business services. Instead of forcing information on people you are placing your business in their view simply because you are out doing errands.
Mobile Advertisement- One thing we know for certain is that the mobile world is where it’s at. It is proven that most web searches are done on mobile devices, because everyone is always on the go. Well your vehicle with your business logo is right alongside all of these mobile people!
Cost Effective- Rather than paying advertisement fees every month, whether it be a billboard, other signage, radio spots etc. you own this advertisement completely and only pay for it once!
Local Market- No better way to target your local market than to be directly in front of them frequently! This will help to gain exposure within your community as well as establish your business and what you offer. Many times word of mouth is a great way to gain customers and what better way to do so then by immersing your business name and services within your local market!
These are just a few of the many benefits vinyl wraps have to offer in terms of marketing your business, services and products. Vinyl wrap advertsisment has also been proven to be the best return on investment for your marketing dollar! And to sweeten the deal a bit more vinyl wraps provide a protective barrier on your vehicle or company fleet of vehicles which helps to insure they are better equipped to stand up against environmental factors such as weather elements, road debris, dents and scratches!
For the avid automobile lover, and those vehicle owners that just want to help protect their car from theft, break ins, and the weather elements (especially those in snowy winter climates) parking your car in your garage is the best bet. In fact keeping your car in the garage will also help to keep it cooler or warmer depending on the weather outside. But what happens if you don’t have a garage? Or you have multiple cars and only a single car garage? When people think of converting a single car garage into a space that can hold at least two cars they think of the expense. Afterall, it sounds like somewhat of a big project! Or what about building a garage to even just store a single car within? That sounds like a big and expensive project as well!! Is it worth it in the end? And what about the rumor that while you think your garage is the safest place for your vehicle, it’s actually the space where your car is more likely to get dents and dings from excessive clutter, sports equipment, and other stored items that always seems to take over your garage space? Well we decided to get some advice from a garage door/conversion specialist and have the low down on pricing of a conversion, pros and cons etc! In fact Rusty from Parkerdoorsaz.com was able to give us some great insight and information on just what it takes to convert your carport or single car garage into a safe space to park and protect your car.

Most times people will take their automobiles through drive through car washes or even to a professional detailer. While both save you time they don’t necessarily save you money, especially the professional detailer. Not only that but it has been found that washing our own cars/trucks by hand in our own driveways is therapeutic and benefits the person’s state of mind. You are doing something productive out doors and will have a clean automobile when done! However, there are Do’s and Dont’s that come with washing our own cars.
First thing’s first most people reach for dish soap or laundry detergent to wash their automobiles. They figure it’s soap it cleans my dishes or clothes so it has to work for my car too right? Wrong household soaps and cleaners are incredibly harsh on your car’s finish and paint. When used it can strip your car of it’s protective wax . It is best to use a soap dedicated to cleaning your car’s exterior. These are made with milder chemicals as to not strip your car’s finish or harm it’s paint.
Next we have sponges. The best sponge to use on your car is either a soft natural sponge or a lamb’s wool mitt. These help to reduce small hairline scratches that can be created from too harsh of sponges. Often sand dirt, and brake dust can be spread around as well creating more visible scratches. That is why for cleaning wheels, and the lower portion of our cars where grease, tar, rubber and bugs seem to accumulate it is suggested to use a different sponge than the one you use on the body of your car. Using a different sponge will help you from spreading this gunk onto your car and creating scratches.
In that light it is also suggested to use a bug and tar removal cleaning product made for cars or a wheel cleaner. It is important still yet to make sure that the wheel cleaner is compatible with the finish on your wheels, paint, chrome etc. To reduce the risk of ruining these finishes or creating any other scratches it is suggested to use a wheel cleaner that is marked as ok for ALL wheels!
Another important factor when it comes to washing your car is to never wash it when the body is hot. This means right after driving it or when it has been sitting in the sun for a period of time. Why is this a don’t when it comes to car washing? Heat speeds up the drying process which means soap and water can dry leaving spots and allowing deposits to form.
When scrubbing your car it is also suggested to not use a circular motion. Circular motion scrubbing can cause small noticeable scratches and swirl marks. Nobody wants patches or circular scratches on their car’s finish!!! Instead move sponge lengthwise across the body of your vehicle.
Make sure to also rinse car thoroughly with water before starting the washing process. This allows for excess dirt and debris to be removed from your car prior to scrubbing it which again reduces the risk of scratching your car’s paint.
As with drying your car it is suggested to stay away from coarse towels. It is best to use a chamois and blot the car dry rather than trying to scrub off excess water!
