Good tint shops prosper despite local competition by offering good service at reasonable prices. Find a tint shop that has been in business for 5 or more years at the same location. This shows a stable business that will be there years down the road if somehow the tint goes bad. Often times, successful tint shops open car tinting branches in neighboring cities. Although the installers of the branches may not be the master tint of the bunch, since opening new shops means training new employees; however, branches are a sure sign of a successful tinting business.
You should inquire the types of film they use and the type of warranty that they offer. Quality tint shops carry complete lines of window film from one or multiple window film manufacturers. They should carry dyed, hybrid, and metallic in a variety of colors and darkness. Beware of tint shops that only carry one or two lines of film, and sells them aggressively. They may have acquired this film on sale, and may not be thinking of your unique requirements and concerns. The warranty on the car tint varies depending on the window film you choose. Try to install only window film backed with a lifetime warranty for materials and labor. Most films don’t guarantee color and fading, it is recommended that you also choose one that does. For the warranty to take effect, check out the window tint laws for your state. Illegal tint can nullify any manufacturer’s warranty. When you purchase your tint, be sure sure you get a manufacturer’s warranty card from the dealer with the date, the window film used on each window, and the total cost of installation as well as the receipt.
Try to visit the shops that they have offered their services. Tint shops can sound like the best shop on the phone, but 15 minutes on-site should tell you all you need to know. Good dealers pay attention to customer service. They should be happy and willing to spend the time to talk to you and explain how their shops work. Remember, if they don’t spend time with you now, they might not spend time with you when something goes wrong with your tint job down the road.
Get the exact of the things that you really want to demand may it be the darkness, color, type of window film that you want. Never compromise because there are plenty of other dealers out there that will offer your perfect tint. With these price quotes and your research on each tint shop, make the decision.
