How Do You Remove Car Signage?

Although car signage is an effective tool for advertising your business on the road, there will come a time where you will need to remove it, most commonly when you are looking to sell your car.

While there are common standards and procedures for removing signage, the results will often vary from one to another as it is heavily influenced by the age and condition of the signage, if there is clear coat, the type of glue used and condition of the paintwork.

For more information on the process you can refer to our guide here


Can you remove signage from the window?

Yes, we can remove signage and stickers from the window. This is most common on the rear/tailgate window. Please inform upon booking so that we can include it as an add-on to your package.

How long does car signage removal take?

It is hard to say how long it takes to remove car signage as there are many contributing factors such as

  • How much signage?
  • How long it has been there?
  • Is there clear coat? If so, what is the condition of the paint
  • How strong is the glue
  • Is the signage singular or large pieces

What results can I expect?

Have you ever ripped off a band-aid and seen the difference in colour on your skin? Similar applies to signage removal, except the signage has been left more so often for many years under the scorching Sun. As you can imagine, it can leave quite the discrepancy in colour of areas covered by signage and areas that were not. To alleviate this, we include a machine polish/buff with cutting compounds to help blend in the paintwork. Not only will this reduce the colour differences, but also rejuvenate the paintwork that has been oxidised to a more glossy finish – so it could even look better than what it was before.

What risks are there?

Removing car signage is a very meticulous process that requires great attention to detail and patience. However, even with the best products, skills and sturdiest hands, there will always be the potential risk of damage during the process. This is because as car signage ages over time, it is exposed to harmful Sun and UV rays causing it to deteriorate and form cracks. This means the textural integrity of the signage has changed over time, which can affect how it is currently sticking to the paintwork. There may be times where if you remove the signage that it may pull off some of the paint or cause some blemishes. Of course, utmost care will always be taken and this is more prone to old vehicles with no clear coat (very few models are like this).

Melbourne Schmicko Are Your Local Auto Experts

One of the most popular reasons for car signage removal Melbourne services, is to boost the chances of selling their car for top value. Which is completely understandable. This is because there appears to be to some degree, a level of negativity/doubt when it comes to purchasing a car that resonates anything close to a company or work vehicle. And we believe it has something to do with the fact that there is an assumption that company or work cars are not taken the care of the same way as their personal vehicle, since it is not technically theirs. Unfortunately, this may be true in some cases and the presence of signage could be devaluing your car’s worth by the thousands regardless of how well the car was treated and maintained.

For this reason, many of our Melbourne drivers have experienced great success in the selling process without car signage removal service. We were able to safely remove the stickers then buff the surface to restore some of that gloss. In doing so, we are able to reduce minor blemishes and blend in the paintwork between areas that were once covered by signage vs areas that were not.

Although it is crucial to understand that results can often vary from car to car due to variables such as the existing paint condition, signage age, signage condition and so on. Nonetheless, our car signage removal Melbourne detailers, can typically achieve amazing results each time, only in the rare instances that your car could be in a state that would require an entire re-spray as a possibility with the local panel shop.

Cut The Stress & Achieve The Best

We know selling your car can be a headache, after hour phone calls, messages, followed by wasted time with tyre-kickers, low ball offers and what not. To cut through the noise, having your car displayed in an immaculate condition is an excellent way to ward away these annoyances.

If there is nothing wrong with the car, what can be bargained down?

Let’s face it, there is no hiding a signage on the car. They are designed to stand out, catch your eye from across the road and be engraved in your memory for future reference. So, there is no denying the effectiveness of having it removed when it comes to selling your vehicle. If you want to achieve the best offer for your car, then this car signage removal Melbourne service is a no-brainer. We can almost guarantee that you will experience challenges selling your car if it still has signage on it. Car buyers tend to buy based on emotion and if they cannot feel comfortable with a car they are about to purchase, then your chances of selling it is highly dropped. This is certainly the case for someone looking to buy a car with someone else’s name, business and collage of colours wrapped around it.

The Process

Welcome to have a peak at our removal process right here to better understand our way of tackling majority of the vehicles we receive. It is important to note that paint correction, otherwise known as a machine buff/polish is mandatory after removal.  Although, we’d highly advise against doing it yourself it due to the potential risks involved such as paint stripping or burning, can access our guide here. If you are inexperienced, there is a very high chance that you could make the process harder by deteriorating the stickers and signage further into smaller more brittle pieces.
