You have a fun and challenging sticker removal job ahead of you.
Reflective vinyl on Ambulances is very different to standard car stickers and much harder to remove as uses a thicker material and stronger adhesive.
The whizzy wheel will do the job, though wear down a lot more due to the thickness and toughness of reflective decals. My gut feel is you will go through a few wheels on this job.
Heat guns are okay, though a bit hit and miss (they generally don’t work for old baked on and cracked stickers, but okay for newer stickers).
For removing the adhesive, the best and fastest way we have found is using a citrus degreaser (this is the stuff people use to get grease off stuff. I’m not sure about UK shops, but in the USA it looks like this citrus degreaser (Note: the whizzy wheel will take off a lot of the adhesive)
Good luck with the job and let me know if need further help
At least once per month he has to remove stickers from a boat and recently saw our Whizzy Wheel in action, easily taking off boat stickers. This week he had a massive catamaran that he was maintaining and need the stickers removed
The good news is we sent him 4 Whizzy Wheels as one of his colleagues used the wheel and was thoroughly impressed. We also sent him an extra one and Michael will be making a video of removing the boat stickers to help his fellow marine patriots remove decals from boats
The reason Michael was excited is boat and ship stickers are usually baked on very hard, due to the salt water and hot weather. This means using your finger nail or sprays are not useful
To summarise our chat, I’ll walk you how to remove any boat sticker in minutes. Note: for fibreglass hauls, we always recommend testing in a discrete small area first
1. Wipe down the surface of boat sticker. This ensures its clean and there are not pebbles or grit that could mark the surface
2. Attach the Whizzy Wheel to a standard house hold drill and turn on to approx. 2500-4000 rpm
3. Move the Wheel back and forth across the boat sticker
4. For any delicate work, use the Whizzy Plastic Razor blade to finish off the job
The above example will work just aswell when removing stickers from most marine vehicles such as Boats, Catamarans, Yachts, Speed Boat’s, Jet Ski’s, Steel Frame Boats and Ships (for wooden boats, we recommend a plastic razor blade such as whizzy plastic blade remover
Our boat sticker removing video is coming soon. In the meantime, checkout the below that shows how boat stickers can be easily removed

Removing Car Stickers – Why it Can be Hard Work
There are 3 factors that determine whether a Car Sticker is hard to remove (though even the hardest sticker can be removed easily with the right sticker removal tool)
The Best 3 WAYS to Remove Car Stickers (From Easy to Hard)
If you want to remove car stickers, I’ve outlined the best 3 approaches below and made a car sticker removal video, to make it easier for you
Car Sticker Removal Video – Comparing the 3 Approaches
Plastic Razor blade
Step 1 Pull your Whizzy Wheel from its secure packaging.
Step 2 Pop the Whizzy Wheel onto your regular house drill using the arbour supplied.
Step 3 Place the Whizzy Wheel and any decal, sticker, or vinyl (up to 55 years old) and turn on the drill.
Step 4 Watch as your decals and stickers quickly vanish revealing a smooth, decal free surface.
As the car sticker is removed, the wheel will wear down and a fine rubber dust will appear on the surface (as per the video demo). Just wipe this dust away and you’ll see the sticker has been removed
Step 1 Locate (or buy) the most powerful hair dryer you have access to
Step 2 Turn the Hair Dryer onto maximum hear
Step 3 Place the hair dryer approximately 7 – 12 centimetres from the car sticker and move back and forth
Step 4 With use of a plastic blade, peel back the car sticker from the surface
Note: be careful when pulling off the car sticker as it can get very hot. We recommend using a plastic blade in-conjuction with the hair dryer for best results
The video below shows a Hair Dryer removing a Car Sticker. This would looks like a new sticker as it comes off fairly easily
Plastic Razor Blade <add imge blade>
Step 1 Find the sharpest plastic blade available
Step 2 Get the plastic blade under the edge of the sticker
Step 3 Slowly work the blade under the car sticker and peel backwards
Note: the plastic razor blade does not work well on old stickers as these are usually bonded to the surface. We recommend a plastic razor blade for wooden basketball courts or plastic surfaces
Tip 1 – Citrus Degreaser to Remove Adhesive from the Surface
We find that when removing very old car stickers, that adhesive can be left on the surface. This need to removed, otherwise dust and dirt will get stuck to the surface.
The best product to remove adhesive is citrus degreaser. This can be bought from Bunnings or Home Depot for around $10 – 15 a bottle. If you don’t want to use a manufactured chemical, you can also use Eucalyptus oil to remove the adhesive
Tip 2 – Cut and Polish to remove “Ghosting Affect”
If you are removing a very old car sticker, the painted surface around the sticker may have faded. This means when you remove the sticker, the painted surface underneath will look clean and fresh. To get around this, we recommend Cut and Polish (the strongest type of Polish) to help remove
The Top 6 Reasons People need to Remove Stickers and Decals

It seems that the toughest and hardest stickers to remove, are those baked on from 100+ degree heat. (and maybe that is why we get so many orders from California for people wanting to remove).
the reason it’s so difficult to remove these stickers is the excessive heat, bakes the sticker to the surface. This means the following techniques take off the 4wd car sticker do not work
1. Fingers Nail: doesn’t work as the sticker is too baked onto the surface
2. Hair dryer: doesn’t work as the sticker is bonded to the surface and can only be removed by wearing away the sticker
The good news is the whizzy wheel, definitely will work.
We had a customer with a land crusier with decals going back to the early 1980’s. He took these really old decals off in minutes with the use of a whizzy wheel
The only downside was that the paint around the sticker had faded (we recommended him use some cut and polish to try blend the colours together)
So if you need to take off a sticker from an old 4wd, we strongly recommend you try the whizzy wheel and get the sticker removed in minutes. You only need to
1. Take the whizzy wheel out of the packer
2. Connect the arbor (supplied) to your drill
3. Turn on the whizzy wheel to 2500-4000 rpm
4. Move the whizzy wheel across the 4wd sticker and watch it disappear.
As the whizzy wheel is made from soft rubber, it will not harm factory finish paint. It will also remove most of the adhesive which is a bonus
Common 4WD Land Cruiser with Decals needed to be removed
If there is any adhesive left on (some really old stickers) can leave old adhesive, we recommend some citrus degreaser from your local Home Depot store (around $10 for a big bottle)
We love helping people remove tough old 4wd stickers. So if you have any questions, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org

This week I am opening up about the behind the scenes action of removing car decals and stickers.
For a quick background, our family business installed and removed vinyl signs, stickers and decals from all types of surfaces. Since my father sold up (and retired), we moved online, and focus solely on removing stickers and decals via the Whizzy Wheel.
Our primary channel is our website and recently it went under an update and the results were surprising.
The major changes were
1. Kept the same awesome decal car removal video that has over 100,000 views (thank)
2. Changed the website to a cool snazzy site, with the ability to order 1 – 3 wheels and express whizzy wheel delivery to USA, Canada, UK and Australia (and it appears california’s are our biggest sticker removal customers)
3. Removed our old “plain” looking website that we thought looked dated and old
Well the crazy result is after 1 month, the old site did better.
The decal removal video is the same, but people seem to like the less professional look when it comes to buying tools that remove stickers and decals.
I would love your insights to WHY this is so, as I thought professional and well designed was the best way to express how people can easily take of stickers from most surfaces
Look, we love people contacting us to find out the different ways to remove any type of sticker (firstname.lastname@example.org), BUT THIS TIME I need your help
If you have any insight into why the old site worked so well, please let me know… your our decal customers and we want to hear from you

Often the school buses end up in foreign countries such as Guatemala as part of the public transportation system. I experienced this a few years ago, when travelling through Central America.
Sometimes these yellow school buses are cleaned and stickers taken off before being used for other purposes. This is where we can help
School buses often have a decal on the side reading “School Bus”. This decal can easily be removed following these simple steps
The below video show a car sticker easily being removed and this you would expect the same results when removing a school bus sticker
Now that the sticker has been removed from the bus, there are a few things to note:
TIP: to get rid of any left over adhesive from the surface, try citrus degreaser from Home Depot for about $12’s. It works a treat

This week, we have helped one of the largest traffic control businesses remove stickers from their vehicle of SUV’s, pick up trucks and utes.
FYI – Traffic Coontrol business are the people responsible for organising and mangaging traffic when there is road work on building construction that impacts the flow of traffic
The demand for the Whizzy Wheel to remove stickers from ute’s arises within the traffic control business due to the different uses of the vehicles. The utes that are used for night work require reflective decals and cars that are used for certain jobs, need specific car stickers applied
The result is that the vehciles used, constantly need the stickers removed and new decals applied. The reflective night decals are very hard to remove, due to the thickness of the sticker, hence most traditional tools don’t work.
The three main approaches these traffic control businesses use to take off the car stickers are listed below in order of effectiveness, with sticker removal video demonstrations aswell.
Today we have spoken about removing vehicles stickers for people in the traffic control business and had great success. We would like to share that decal removal succes with more people, so today we are making an open invitation to help all those who need any assistance removing vehicle stickers.
Please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0011 61 421 001 613 for any decal or sticker removal questions.

We got to this position through 20+ years family experience and launching the Whizzy Wheel that is the best decal removal tool on the market
The feedback we get from our customers who have removed some of the most stubborn car stickers is the Whizzy Wheel is fantastic.
I used the wheel for the first time this past Saturday,2-18.Took off 94 ft of one and a half inch
wide pin striping vinyl off of my boat in less than 2 hours.
This is absolutely a fantastic product. Thanks a lot
Ted – NJ USA. (17 March)
I had my body guy order the parts. I hope he ordered them from you i mentioned your product by
name. the work was excellent and he said he used the wheel. thank you for developing it.
Daniel, (6 June)
I just received your product, Whizzy Wheel, and I want to say THANK YOU ! I had asked so many
people how to remove it and they all came down with one solution, hair dryer which will damage
the car paint. But your products only take a few minutes! Now I can change decals any time and any style I want. Good luck at the business. I will definitely introduce your products around.
California, USA – Brian Wai, 23 February
The downside is that we can not reach enough people to help rid the world of the old and dated stickers that appear on everything from sign posts Malaysia, cars, trucks and even aeroplanes
So recently we hired a youtube expert who bought together a video to help promote the whizzy wheel. We were expecting bug things as our current video has 97,485 plus views.
(… and this article isn’t about the youtube expert, rather about the importance of good and useful video of removing decals).
So we put together a very basic video (check it out below) to see if putting some Ads on Youtube about removing decals would help build traffic.
The results were very disappointing… less than 4 views so far.
Now this is not a failure, rather a great learning opportunity for us about the information we need to pass onto our customers and viewers.
We have learnt, that a salesy video without great content doesn’t help anyone. People want to learn more about decal removal tips and techniques first, before being shown an offer.
The above decal video would have been much more powerful if we showed people how to:
Remove any left over adhesive from the surface easily by using citrus degreaser or eucalyptus oil that you can get for under $10 a bottle
So it shows that you do not need a professional video with lots of hype, rather a genuine video that shows actual results. Maybe our testimonial video’s would have been better to build some creditability of people who have acutally used the Whizzy Wheel and had great success
So now I am reaching out to you, to offer our help to remove decals. I am not asking you to buy the Whizzy Wheel, rather if you have a question about how to remove a sticker or decal from any type of surface, then drop me a line at email@example.com and I’ll give you my best ideas and tips…. (as a goodwill gesture to help you out)
