Car wrapping business is here, and Nairobians are loving it. Well, you have probably seen cars around town with flashy designs on their outer bodies, more like graffiti, a trend that is becoming quite popular with East African motor show exhibitors. Ever wondered who does this? It is called car wrapping, a process of transforming the colour and overall look of your car by applying large sheets of coloured vinyl film on car panels. Meet Ciprian Oprisanu, a Romanian national who runs a professional car wrapping business in the city. Speaking to City Biz, Ciprian said he started the business eight years ago soon after he decked his car. “I was away in Denmark studying. I used it on my car and decided to take a professional course in car wrapping,” he says. Ciprian says he officially got into the business last year. “I first started a restaurant, but then this year in June, I decided to venture fully in car wrapping,” he says. He visits car dealers for business as well as interact with clients seeking his services on Facebook through his Professional Car Wrapping page. He cites a case of a white Toyota that nobody seemed to be interested in. But as soon as he changed it into a flashy blue colour and put it back in the market, it was snapped up within two days by someone from the First Family. “I have wrapped 12 of Mike Sonko’s cars, and they look better than ever,” he reveals. “Jua Kali wrapping is not professional. They will make cuts that eventually cost you more since after removing the wraps, you will have to re-paint your car,” he adds. The white car which he transformed to blue was done for Sh50,000. According to him, his work guarantees value for every cent. Ciprian says he charges up to Sh200,000 for high-end clientele. The least he has charged is Sh20,000. He is quick to add that the amount varies depending on the type and colour of material to be used, size of the car and even the client. He adds that, “The market here is good. The prices are fare, and the work is flexible. I can work from a garage or even at a client's premises. All I need are my tools.”
