Do You Run a Bodyshop?
A customer comes to you and wants the works. New paint job, PDR, frame test, you name it. Then they say, “Do you install bedliners?” You say, “Yes!” but what do you actually do? You send those jobs to the guy down the street. But why?
One of our dealers says that on a $400 spray-on bedliner his shop pays $140 in “dead cost.” With that kind of profit potential, you’re losing money every time you send that truck down the street. Shops are charging between $385 to $475 per job, depending on the size of the truck bed and the area of the country where they’re located. Most manufacturers say that, after the cost of materials is factored in, a shop can make a 50 percent profit or higher on each liner sprayed.
How long does a job take?
You’ll invest less than three hours of shop labor per job, and two guys can turn out three or four of these jobs in an eight-hour day.
What does it take to get started?
It all depends on the bedliner system you choose. For the most part, however, it’s going to take what you already have. Your people already know how to spray. They also know how to prep. These are the two most important jobs in spraying a bedliner.
As for setup, some say a body shop has nearly everything needed to spray truck bedliners – a spray gun, a compressor, a spraybooth and people who are used to doing prep work.

SPRAY ON BEDLINERS
Perma-Coat bedliners are as tough as your truck. In fact, a Perma-Coat bedliner is one of the most durable sprayed-on bedliners that you can buy. It resists fuels, fertilizers, and most corrosive and acidic chemicals. In addition, it is abrasion resistant and impervious to water, snow, and mud. There is almost nothing you’ll meet in a normal day’s work that can damage a Perma-Coat bedliner, as the material is an industrial coating.
You can, but why would you want to? Your liner protects your truck’s bed from scratches, rust, dents, and damage from corrosives, chemical, and acids. It provides a tough, slip-proof surface that enhances your truck’s appearances, adds years to its life, and helps maintain your truck’s resale value.
It takes a lot to damage a Perma-Coat spray-on bedliner in the first place. Just in case you get a minor gouge, dent or cut in your bedliner, your dealer can easily make the repair.
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF PERMA-COAT?
A Perma-Coat spray-on bedliner is ideal for any pickup truck. Whether you drive your truck for work, light hauling, or just for fun, choosing our truck bedliners will increase the value of your vehicle and protect your investment over time. Perma-Coat linings bond directly to the truck bed to form a permanent, watertight, and airtight barrier against rust and corrosion. Water can’t seep under the lining, and there is no loss of cargo space. Our coatings offer the following:
- Resistance to Fuels, Fertilizers, & Most Corrosive Chemicals
- Tough, Industrial-Grade Protection
- Tolerates Temperature Extremes without Cracking or Warping
- UV Resistance
- Cushions Cargo & Reduces Slippage
- Increases NADA/Bluebook Resale Value
Perma-Coat’s sprayed-on polyurethane coating, while best known for protecting pickup truck beds, has many commercial applications. The double polyurethane spray-on bedliner protects hard working surfaces from damage from rough treatment and chemicals while it provides a waterproof, rust-proof coating. From dump trucks to cargo vans to utility bodies, any truck that works hard can benefit from a sprayed-on liner. Depending upon the specific use, the finish can be smooth to facilitate easy loading and unloading of cargo, or textured to provide a non-slip surface. Our proprietary urethane formula produces optimum bonding and fade-resistance characteristics on all surfaces, and is commonly sprayed up to ¼ inch thick or more for commercial and industrial applications. We have one of the fastest growing dealer networks in the spray-on polyurethane industry, with dealers from coast to coast. Our business is based on a proprietary new chemical formula which maximizes pliability, durability, and color stability, which ensures the finished job won’t chalk out. The low pressure system features unique spray equipment that guarantees a quality job and allows the dealer to color match on the spot using proprietary Perma-Coat Perma-Color Pigments.
