Maybe years of sun exposure has caused the once-shiny paint on your car to fade and crack. Maybe your vehicle is covered in unsightly scratches. Maybe you’re sick of the color and simply need a change of pace.

The cost of a car paint job varies depending on several factors: what quality of materials you want used, how long you want the paint job to last, and what preparation work you want done to the car beforehand (e.g. buffed out dents and scratches, body repair work, etc.). A high quality paint job—done by an experienced painter with materials that will prove durable—can run you anywhere from $5,000-$8,000, and that’s just for a typical color change. If you want to go really fancy, it could cost you more than you’d pay for a new car. Another important point to note is that when a car is repainted, the factory paint must first be removed, which means the value of your car decreases.



Instead of an expensive paint job, consider a vinyl car wrap. Sure, when you hear those words, you typically think of advertisements. But did you know you can get a plain vinyl wrap in any color you could ever dream up? Your car will be refreshed with a new, glossy color (or matte if that’s more your style), but for a fraction of the cost of a typical paint job.


Like the paint job, the cost of a vinyl wrap depends on different factors, including the size of your car and the material you choose to use for your wrap. For a bigger car like a Ford Escape, you can expect to pay anywhere from $3,000–$4,500 for a custom wrap. A smaller car, like a Toyota Corolla, will runcolor change vinyl wraps for cars - pink you around $2,500–$4,000. With a color change vinyl wrap, you don’t have to worry if you change your mind a couple years later and want to go back to your original car color. The vinyl protects the original paint and is easily removed, so it isn’t a hassle if you decide to go with a different look.
