Virtually every debadging/emblem removal job is unique. See this list as to some of the many variables that go into pricing a job out:

  • How many emblems/badges you want removed?
  • How many will be replaced?
  • Will replacement emblems be aftermarket versions, or OEM (original equipment)?
  • How old is your vehicle? (the older the vehicle the more work is involved from the removal process to the final paint polishing)
  • Are emblems attached with double sided tape only with no pins through sheet metal of car, or a combination of double sided tape and aligning pins?
  • Are you looking to replace with exact replacement, or switching to a different sized emblem for an updated look to your car/truck?
  • Is your vehicle paint light colored or dark? (the darker the paint the more work will be required for perfection in finished product)

Since no standard exists when it comes to these jobs, every job is treated as a unique situation and priced accordingly.

With that said, I can tell you that a simple one emblem removal on a newer car can be as low as $80, with a job on a truck removing all emblems, replacing Chevy bow ties front and rear, to removing chrome side rails that can be as much as $400 based on year and color of car/truck.

Likely your job will be one of those, or somewhere in between.

For this reason the best and most immediate way to find out cost and availability to is shoot me a text:

714/ 624-0804

I have to screen all my calls or this hard working guy would never get any actual work done.

Please text the following info at a minimum:

  • What service you are needing done: removal of badges only, or removal plus installation of new badges/emblems?
  • What is make and model of your vehicle?
  • What color of paint is your vehicle?
  • What is the year of your vehicle? (the older the vehicle the more work involved)

If you are the detailed oriented type of individual, I will also be asking you the following:

  • How many badges total need removal?
  • How many badges/emblems you want replaced if you need this done?
  • Do you have replacement emblems already? ( I always recommend original equipment emblems purchased from dealer as a rule [these always fit best], but have seen a few after market versions that are of quality)

These are added notes that you should find useful:

  • Most jobs (removal of badges/emblems only) average between 20-50 minutes based on how many badges/emblems total.
  • People come to me (I make exceptions based on a case by case situation) and I am in the city of Placentia.
  • You are welcome to watch, or you can relax in my place (watch T.V., work using my wi-fi, relax, clean my house, whatever works for you)
  • I am on a cash only basis.

"Experience is KING!"

The reality of every part of life often comes down to experience! Many guys can create and maintain the appearances of experience, but don't really have it.

We have performed hundreds of these types of jobs. And despite how easy many people (myself included) can make this look in a video, the truth is that every car is unique. And based on the car/truck with regards to the age, the color, and the specific emblems or badges being removed will determine the potential problems that can arise due to lack of experience.

Cutting corners on a moment when car badges emblems are being removed is not likely the place you want to save a buck by doing it yourself, or leaving it to the hands of the inexperienced

When You Are Ready...

If you are ready to have a professional (that's me; Darren Priest) perform this for you please reference the following:

  • You can text me and I can give you a quote.
  • I will need to know the the type of vehicle, the age, the color, and which emblems you want removed.
  • I am mobile and can come to you, but most people will travel to me and save themselves some money as I charge more to travel to you. (I am in city of Placentia of Orange County)
  • Since every car/truck is different, the cost will be based on all variables.
  • As a starting point, a single emblem removal might cost $60, with a full debadging of a truck or SUV with many emblems to remove running upwards towards $200.
  • Once again, there are many factors that will affect the price and I will need to take all these into consideration so you get the results you are after. (remember the part above about experience; experience has taught me how to ask the right questions so I can deliver superior results)
  • I am on a cash only basis (Yes, the few have ruined it for the many)
  • I can set these jobs on weekday or weekend appointments.
  • Your car/truck should be relatively clean prior to me working on it.
