From time to time, we get calls from customers saying they've scraped the paint off their car trying to remove a sticker! Even though we like to make money, we thought it would be a good idea to give you a few tips on how to remove stickers from your vehicle safely, saving you from costly repairs down the road.

The most obvious thing you're going to want to do first is to try removing the sticker with your fingernails. Why break out razor blades, when a simple God-given appendage will do! NEVER USE A RAZOR BLADE ON YOUR CAR!

If that doesn't work, you're going to have to heat up the sticker to loosen that adhesive. The best way to do this is to use a heat gun. Now I understand that most of you don't own a heat gun; so, in that instance, grab a hair dryer. Set the hair dryer on the hottest setting, and begin to heat the sticker through. Take your fingernail and try to remove the sticker as before, while continuing to apply heat. In a perfect world, the sticker should peel off without having to resort to the dreaded razor blade. NEVER USE A RAZOR BLADE ON YOUR CAR!

Most likely, there will be some adhesive residue left over. You'll want to grab some adhesive remover and a terry cloth rag, and get to work!

These simple tips should save you from more costly repairs down the road.

Drive happy my friends!
