Can You Wrap a Leased Vehicle?

Wrap a Leased Vehicle

Leasing a vehicle can be an affordable way to get a feel for different types and brands of rides. However, not all leased vehicles may come in the design and color you’re looking for and you may have plans of designing a wrap to meet your stylistic needs!


While this may sound fun, it can also pose a problem for the company behind your lease. Much like wanting to paint the walls of a rented apartment, there are questions that need to be asked and rules that need to be followed. Let SkinzWraps, Inc. help clear the air on how to approach applying vinyl wrap to a leased vehicle.

When in Doubt, Consult Your Lease

If you want to wrap your car and it’s under a lease, check your contract before scheduling an appointment with a Dallas vinyl wrap expert. Most leases will allow vinyl wraps and decorative graphics. However, every vehicle lease tells a different story, so truly understand your specific provisions and if need be, double-check with your leasing agent for confirmation. 

Is your Lease Freshly Painted?

If a vehicle has a new coat of paint on it, we really can’t recommend a wrap. Fresh paint needs time to cure and completely dry. A new paint job can take between 1 and 8 weeks to totally dry. Until then, avoid a vehicle wrap in order to maintain the integrity of the new paint job.

Stick with Brand Name Vinyl

Don’t risk getting fined by ruining a leased car’s paint job with a bad wrap. Your leased vehicle may be in your possession, but it isn’t actually yours. When you apply a wrap to your leased truck or car, you want to ensure the quality of your wrap is also on your mind. At SkinzWraps. Inc; we use premium, brand name vinyl that guarantees the protection of a vehicle’s paint job while applied. 

Keep Track of Recommended Time Frame of Use

Even though your graphics and wrap may look great past their warranty period, don’t let your wrap stick on beyond what your wrap expert recommends. When left on beyond the warranty date, a wrap can become difficult to remove. Your wrap will need to come off eventually, and diluted quality adhesive means the process results in scarping, chemical use, and the risk of paint damage.
