But here at CJ Signs, as vehicle wrapping experts, we often get asked the same question, and it's one that’s extremely important for business owners of all sizes: “How much does it cost to wrap a van?”

The answer to this isn’t necessarily simple, but don’t worry… We’re here to guide you through everything you need to know, from pricing outlines to the factors that influence the cost of a van wrap.

What is van wrapping?

Van wrapping describes a process of covering a van with a thin adhesive vinyl to transform its appearance.

With a van vinyl wrap, you can create unique and eye-catching designs using images, logos, text and any colour - perfect for strengthening your brand identity and giving your business a professional image.

But you might imagine this doesn’t come cheap. Not necessarily…

Factors that influence the cost of van wrapping

The size and shape of the van

The size of the van is a large factor when determining the cost. A larger van usually means more material and increased labour costs. Similarly, an unusual van shape can make things trickier, increasing the workload and therefore cost.

To partially wrap a small van, for example a Peugeot Partner, prices are likely to start from £800, whereas a large van such as a Mercedes Sprinter, will be a little more, starting from £900.

The type and complexity of the wrap

There are multiple types of wraps and graphics available, from basic vinyl graphics right through to a full printed wrap. 

Vinyl graphics tend to be considerably cheaper, for example for a small van, these can cost anything from £250+. Whereas for a full printed wrap, you’re looking more towards £2,200+.

The quality of the materials

Premium materials, such as higher-grade vinyl can be more expensive both to supply and fit, so expect this to hike the price up.

The cost of labour

Like with any service, the cost of labour can vary. Highly skilled installers will charge more, however, the results are usually better.

The van’s condition

Wrapping a van with contaminated paint will require extra work and will therefore influence the final labour costs.

Average Cost Range

So how much does it cost to wrap a van? It can cost anywhere from £800 to £5000 depending on the abovementioned factors. However, we’ve put together some rough estimates below. 

Van Type Cost (From)
