5 Seattle Businesses That Can Benefit from a Vehicle Wrap

September 03, 2019

Many Seattle businesses are taking advantage of the multiple benefits that they get from wrapping their company vehicles with a vinyl wrap. In certain highly competitive industries such as food trucks or home repair, you often have to differentiate yourselves from the rest of the pack.

A Seattle vehicle wrap can not only help promote your business but drive brand awareness as well. When coupled with an intelligently designed marketing campaign, a wrap helps solidify your brand in the minds of your target audience.  

Here’s a list of five types of Seattle businesses who can benefit significantly from a vehicle wrap: 

Food Trucks

There’s no shortage of regular and gourmet food trucks roaming the streets of Seattle. You can find everything from Asian to Zimbabwe and everything in between. No matter if you’re a newcomer or established food truck brand with a massive online following, a truck wrap will help solidify your brand and let everyone that know you’ve arrived.

A professionally installed food truck wrap can generate anywhere from 30,000 to 70,000 impressions a day, even more in high-traffic areas. If you’re rocking a plain ol’ white food truck, you’re missing out on the massive advertising opportunities that a wrap offers. In addition to your brand name, you can have your social media, website, and even email info printed on all four sides of the truck, so that your fans know how to reach you. 

Real Estate Agents 

While some agents may claim that a vehicle wrap is tacky, there are others who say that it’s helped their real estate business find tremendous success. The average realtor vehicle wrap can generate up to 70,000 impressions or more per day. No matter your take on the matter, it’s hard to deny that driving is now the new selling.

As an agent, it’s your job to ABM: Always Be Marketing. For many realtors, that’s easier said than done. After a long hard days’ worth of work, it’s sometimes hard to find the mental energy to market your real estate business. So why not let your car do the walking and talking for you? 

Mobile Trailers

No, we’re not talking about double-wide trailers that you’d find in a trailer park. We mean those big trailers you see an 18-wheeler hauling down the road. If your business or organization really and truly wants to generate attention, there is no better way than to wrap a 53’ foot trailer.

Everything from race car teams to college sporting departments have had their trailers wrapped to generate awareness and attention. Some companies will even rent a large trailer, have a company like McNamara signs wrap it, and then get a truck driver to park it in the front of an event or show to get their message out to the public.

Auto Mechanics

Countless people in Seattle wish they had the number of a reliable and honest mechanic. How do they know which mechanic to trust?

Wrapping your company vehicle—or any vehicle for that matter—is an excellent way for independent mechanics to get their contact info out to the public.

Many Seattle car dealerships are now wrapping their loaner cars to promote both their auto sales and car repair businesses. They’ll even have an expensive flagship car wrapped and driven around town to generate buzz and interest.

Home Repair and Construction

As a home repair professional, it’s sometimes hard to market yourself when you’re crawling under a house fixing a plumbing problem, or on top of a 20’ ladder laying roof shingles. While you can pay for online advertising, it’s often cost-prohibitive as your competitors drive up the cost through aggressive bidding practices. 

Your company vehicle(s) will most likely be parked at the job site for at least 8-12 hours a day, so why not take advantage of the free advertising opportunity? Think about how many cars and people on foot will pass by the job site in a single day. Each person is a potential new client or customer who might be looking for the services that you offer.
