Wraped Edges


Recommended Posts

Just curious here

 

do any of you charge extra for wrapping edges with ppf?

 

I just figured out how to do it a month or so ago and it doesnt take that much longer just something that people really seem to like and from what i understand from customers is that my competetors in the area do not offer this. is it something i should looking into charging extra or just keep it as something that separates me from the rest?

Never charged any more because I have always done it where possible. The way I see it is my customer has invested a not inconsiderable amount of money in PPF and would be rightly annoyed if they pick up a chip on a leading edge that was 'too much trouble' to wrap.

Charging more for wrapped edges versus unwrapped just seems petty. Either you wrap, or you don't. Make sure what you charge equates the value of what you offer. i.e., wrapped edges, 24" uppers instead of 18", throwing in extra pieces like door edges, etc... Be different and set the expectation high so the competition looks cheap and is cheap compared to yourself. You will always have customers who try to negotiate price or low ball you. In the end, the final product/result is your reputation in the market. When consumers see bad installs, or less quality installs, they aren't impressed and will think twice of going to the same place they saw the poor install.

I disagree on that. Some installers can't wrap edges and some won't because it takes more time. Time is money, and we should be charging accordingly. I've seen kits installed from the competition with as much as a half inch gap between kit and leading edge and most consumers think this the normal. Once we educate the client on the standard that's acceptable in the industry vs. the competition they understand why we charge X amounts of dollars more than the other guys after seeing an already finished product up close and in person.

If you read the full statement, I mentioned to charge accordingly for the service and product you offer. Those who can't wrap edges on the hood and fenders choose not to because they either don't want to learn or don't want to spend the extra time doing it. To which it was mentioned, does not take much more extra time to do. I agree, time is money. So yes, it is my opinion that it's petty. Giving a customer an option on wrapped edges versus non-wrapped seems pretty dumb. Set a standard for your quality and leave the price to match that quality. I'm an advocate of doing great work. We as a network of installers should push to set high standards so the dollar charged can increase due to higher quality. There is nothing wrong with your opinion Tintmaster08, I am only advocating to push installers to do better. Some things seem like common sense to me when they aren't to others. The only way to progress our industry is to have dialogue about it. Most people in the networked learned by watching and doing. That means bad habits get passed onto future generations of installers.
