I've gathered some general information for you about vehicle wrap
advertising. For specific price quotes, you'll need to make contact
with one of the firms involved; they don't typically post their prices
online. If you need assistance in locating an appropriate firm in a
certain city, I'll be glad to help.
From what I have read, it appears that most "wrapped" vehicles belong
to the customers whose ad is being displayed. There are a few
companies that "farm out" the wraps by soliciting private individuals'
cars, and compensating those individuals.
"How much does it cost?
To determine the cost of wrapping a vehicle, a number of variables
need to be taken into account. These include vehicle type, quantity of
vehicles, location, graphic coverage, life expectancy of graphics and
warranty/guarantee requirements. To help you determine the viability
of a project, below are ?ballpark? costs for the most popular
vehicles. Please note that these are for a one off vehicle wrap, using
customer supplied artwork and the vehicle being delivered to our
Edenbridge premises for application. It also assumes full coverage of
the vehicle, including any windows."
Smart Car - £900
VW Beetle - £1,200
Ford Transit Connect - £1,400
Mwb Transit - £1,700
Mercedes CL600 - £2,000
Double Decker Bus - £7,000"
"Costs for car wraps depend on the size of the vehicle and amount of
graphics applied, but typically begin at $2-3K."
OnPoint Marketing & Promotions: Car Wraps Advertising Defined
"Vehicle advertising reaches everyone without discrimination. With a
price tag ranging from $2,500-$5,000."
Ads on Wheels: Why Buy A Vehicle Wrap?
"Traditional billboard advertising ranges from about $600 to $2400 a
month. Compare this to a company van 'fully-wrapped' price of about
$3500 -- with a high-quality wrap that can last up to five years --
and it's easy to see how cost-effective vehicle wraps can be. And a
wrap typically generates about 8 million impressions in a year.
Multiply this by five years and no other advertising medium comes
close to the low cost per viewing."

"How much do vehicle wraps cost?
Many things factor into wrap pricing. Size of vehicle, amount of
graphics coverage, and design time are taken into consideration. Curvy
vehicles and vehicle with lots of surface obstacles are more
expensive. A Beetle or Hummer is more difficult than a boxy Ford
Econoline, for example. Full car wraps are usually in the $2,500-3,000
range. Larger vans are in the neighborhood of $3,000-4,000."
