How to Choose the Best Window Tint Shop

June 28, 2011

So you want to get your car tinted – but you’re wondering how to choose the best tint shop to do it. In some areas, tint shops are a dime a dozen, so how do you figure out which one is going to do the best job for the right price? At Tint World®, we’ve been providing exceptional window tinting for over 30 years – it’s even in our name and we’ve learned a few things about what makes a good tint shop.

To help you make your decision, here are a few features you can look for to make sure your vehicle gets the best tint job available.

Computer-Cut Tints and Films

With today’s technology, there is no reason you should get any less than precision-cut window tint. At Tint World®, we use a computer-cut film system that has a database with your vehicle’s exact specifications and then cuts tint pieces to exactly the right size before they ever touch your windows. Other methods produce sloppy results, and risk damage to your vehicle – so if your installer is laying uncut pieces of film on your vehicle and cutting by hand, you should be looking for a better tint shop.

Multiple Tint Package Options

Small-time shops may offer one or two tint options, but if you’re at a quality tint shop, you should have some choices when it comes to window tint. Window tint comes in a variety of shades and qualities, and the best tint shops offer a strong selection of each. At Tint World®, we offer many different window tint packages so you can get just the right service for your needs and budget.

Window Tint Warranty

If you’re paying good money for window tinting, you should get a good warranty. Without a good warranty, the tint shop gets away with mediocre work, and you’re out of options if something goes wrong. Tint World® offers multiple tinting packages, nearly all of which include an extended or lifetime warranty.

Years of Experience

How many years has your tint shop been around? Window tinting can’t be done effectively by just anyone, so be sure to ask what kind of experience your installers are working with. As you can imagine, an amateur window tint installer hasn’t learned all the most effective installation methods, and will probably yield amateur results. Since Tint World® has over 30 years of tinting experience and hire only expert installers, we can produce better results in less time, and usually for less cost.

Samples of Previous Work

The best window tint shops take pride in their work. To make sure you’re getting the best, ask for pictures of previous jobs, or see if some are available online. We install window tint every day at our many nation-wide locations and would be happy to show you some pictures of our recent work.

Check Online Reviews

With more and more people finding auto services on the web, online reviews have become a great way to find the best window tint shop. Use tools like Google Places, Yelp, and other social media sites to hear real opinions of people who have already purchased the service.
