Paid car wraps are a form of advertising where drivers are paid to drive vehicles covered in vinyl wraps. The wraps can be simple or creative, and can be provided by the company or paid for by the driver. Drivers should be aware of scams and check applicable laws.

A paid car wrap is a form of advertising where a driver is paid to drive a vehicle covered in a vinyl wrap that transforms the vehicle’s appearance. The packaging can simply consist of advertising copy and images, or it can be more creative, doing something like turning a car into a giant food item, for example. Vehicle packaging is a very effective and inexpensive method of outdoor advertising that businesses can use to radically increase their exposure.

Paid car covers can work in many different ways. In some cases, the driver is given a wrapped vehicle to drive for the company. The driver is expected to keep the car in good condition, taking care to keep it clean so the wrap does not look unsightly, and it may be necessary for the driver to drive a minimum amount each week to ensure that a baseline of exposure is achieved. The driver must also maintain insurance on the vehicle.

In other cases, drivers are paid to wrap the vehicles they own. The company pays for the wrapping service and offers the driver a stipend in exchange for driving the wrapped vehicle. Paid car wrap can last for months depending on the specifics of the contract. When the housing starts to wear out or the lease expires, it can be removed or replaced.

The idea of ​​getting paid to drive is quite appealing to many people, and there are some paid car wrapping scams to look out for. As a general rule, if the company asks the driver to pay for the wrap, that could be a bad sign. If the contract does not specify what happens if the driver wants the wrap removed or what happens at the end of the paid wrap contract, this could also indicate that the company may not be operating in good faith. Drivers should also be aware that respectful paid car packaging companies often have a long waiting list and that they don’t charge fees to get on the list or require people to pay fees to sign up.

People interested in driving cars with advertising vehicle packaging should also check applicable laws in their areas. There may be laws about which windows can be covered and other issues that can impact the legality of a car wrap. A driver shouldn’t trust the company to do this research: if a car violates the vehicle code, it’s the driver who gets fined, not the company that paid for the car wrap.
