Vehicle wrap advertising is the best way for a business to advertise and promote its services, and is often used instead of expensive paint jobs.   The vinyl sheets can be removed easily, which drastically reduces the costs associated with changing advertisements.  Most of the attention placed on vinyl graphics involves how to put them on, but it is also important to remember that they must eventually come off, as well.

Sooner or later, you’ll need to remove old vinyl before you can install your new graphic.  At Car Pretty, we understand that it’s important to have vehicle wrap removal and reinstallation services at your fingertips 
The common approaches to removing a vehicle wrap range from basic to advanced, with costs ranging from pennies to hundreds of dollars. Determining which approach is right for you depends on the kind of vehicle that needs service, and the kind of wrap that was initially installed.  At Car Pretty, our dedicated technicians are ready to walk you through the decision making process to ensure that your vehicle wrap removal or reinstallation process goes smoothly.  


The removal process involves several steps.  The heat stage of removal relies on one of our skilled technicians and a blow torch.  Starting at an edge or a seam, the vinyl is lightly heated with the flame, and then pulled off of the vehicle. Getting the amount of heat right is a science; too much heat results in a bubbling, smoking, burnt mess that will be even more difficult to remove, and too little heat results in stuck vinyl. At Car Pretty, our installation technicians use their knowledge and their skills to apply just the right amount of heat.


After the heating stage, large patches of vinyl are removed, and then the vehicle goes through a detail stage. This involves using a rubber squeegee, and again a torch if necessary, to get rid of any smaller pieces of vehicle wrap vinyl that are stubbornly holding on. This stage is important when we’re dealing with vehicle graphics or partial wraps that involve small decals.  After all of the vinyl is removed, the next step is the cleaning stage.  The vinyl leaves behind a sticky residue that needs to be removed before the car can be rewrapped. Our technicians wipe your vehicle down with a powerful chemical removal in order to leave your car as clean and bright as the day it was first wrapped.


Keep in mind that because of the knowledge and experienced required, not to mention the combination of fire and specialized chemicals, it is recommended that you have your vehicle wrap removed by a professional. At Car Pretty, our skilled technicians are happy to assist you with both vehicle wrap removal, and vehicle wrap installation.  We pride ourselves in providing quality services, and we are happy to answer any questions that might arise.

Car Pretty Window Tinting is now proud to offer remote starters and car alarms to our customers.  We understand that as a vehicle owner, your car’s protection is a priority.  With that in mind, we now carry both Avitar and Viper car alarms for our customers.  The dedicated team at Car Pretty is ready to assist you with any questions you might have about selecting the right car alarm.   

For years, the Avital 3300 car alarm has been a top seller.  It is manufactured by Directed Electronics, the same company that produces the Viper and Python models. The Avital model has fantastic features including keyless entry, starter kill, and even remote start. However, unlike Viper car alarms, the Avital product does not have the option to integrate with a smart-phone.

Avital 3300 car alarms cover everything from basic keyless entry and alarm arming to shock sensors that detects any movement near the car. Each door and window is protected, and a six-siren alarm will sound with any disturbance to the vehicle. The shock sensors will prevent your car from having the tires stolen. It can also prevent someone from towing it away. No matter what happens to your vehicle, you’ll be in the know with Avital car alarms.

If an alert is generated from your car alarm system, the remote will sound an alarm to notify you of any changes. The remote has a small LCD display screen that displays exactly what part of your vehicle is being tampered with. After the alarm sounds, you can either rearm it or use the starter-kill function. This option prevents the engine from running and your vehicle will remain safe until you can call the authorities. The remote is extremely helpful and detailed, but there are no silent or vibrate settings.

Car Pretty is also proud to offer the Viper 5901, a combination car alarm and remote starter. This model offers vehicle protection through a variety of features including the starter kill, the shock and door sensors. The Viper 5901 car alarm boats a large LCD screen on the remote that displays everything that happens to your car. The flawless features of the Viper 5901 make it stand out from the competition, and give you a whole new level of control.  

Viper car alarms are equipped with the basic door and starter alarm functions. If someone breaks a window or opens the door, the alarm will sound and you will be notified via the alarm. The alarm will also sound if the car is bumped too hard.  You truly can’t go wrong with a Viper car alarm, and the crew at Car Pretty is here to help you decide if this is the right car alarm for your needs.
