How it works
- You book a time slot and a location that suits you.
- Our uniformed team will arrive, only requiring access to a powered plug socket.
- We then clean the vehicle windows with 100% pure water to remove any dirt or microscopic debris before we tint them.
- We could need to detach the door cards to access the entirety of the window. This is done to the highest possible professional standard.
- After the windows have been tinted, we ask that you don’t use the windows for at least 7 days to allow them to completely dry, this safeguards the edge of the tint.
- We can then take payment by, card, bank transfer, or cash.
What window tint shade is the right choice for your car?
Choosing the best tint shade can be tricky. Here are some questions to ask yourself:
- Is the tint to make you car look great?
- Is it to look after children or animals from things like heat & UV rays?
- Do you want cover up valuables from view?
From your responses to the questions our trained specialists are able to help you to pick the correct shade. Here are the 3 main shades to choose from:
Light tint – This is a subtle tint offering protection from UV rays but giving total visibility even in darkness.
Medium tint – This is a factory tinted look, it offers a safeguard from heat, UV rays & does add a little privacy.
Blackout tint – This tint is our most popular, it protects from UV rays, heat and provides absolute privacy.
Which car windows are we able to tint?
We’re regularly asked this question. To start with, let us describe the way tint is measured.
The percentage produced for a tint defines how much of the light is allowed through. So, a 20% tint permits 20% of light to pass through.
The legal limit on both the driver’s and the front passenger’s window is 70%. The windscreen is 75%. Meaning the glass at the front have to let 70-75% of the light through. Most of cars produced today have tinted windows that are almost at (or nearly) the 70-75% limit. Even though to some people this glass doesn’t seem to be tinted, in actual fact it is.
If you go ahead and get your front window glass tinted the potential penalty will be (click this link for details):
- A ‘prohibition notice’ stopping you using your vehicle on the road unless you have the extra tint removed.
- A penalty notice and a court summons.
Also, something else to think about is the insurance on your car. By illegally tinting the front windows of your car, it’s possible to nullify your insurance.
It’s also illegal to an illegally install tint to a cars front windows, with hefty penalties & fines. Vision Tints is a respectable, reliable and trustworthy business that all clients rely on and as such we do not want to disobey the law. So we decided to not tint your front windows past the legal limit.
We will test with a tint meter to ensure everything is allowable when applying tint on front windows.
We will happily tint any rear windows as dark as you wish, as there is no legal limit on rear window tints.
What type of tint do you use?
Not every window tint was created equal! The types of window tint available are:
This tends to be the least expensive product available to the market, it bubbles, fades, and normally goes a blue or purple colour after a while. Its really not great, and we don’t recommend it.
This tint is also often very cheap. It is affected by the rear window heater lines, making it bubble. It can also disturb radio reception. This isn’t a good option, and, will not last.
Carbon or Charcoal
Top industry-standard window tint. It is what we usually use at Vision Tints, as it provides great colour, its long lasting, does not get affected by heater lines & doesn’t affect the radio signals.
The best tint we can buy, offered as our premium service. It has great longevity/colour, isn’t affected by heater lines, will not affect radio signals and gives the most UV/temperature protection.
All that being said, not all manufacturers of tint offer the same, after many years of experience, we have selected what we believe is the best brand available, and even better, it’s manufactured in the UK, meaning when you hire our services you’re supporting two UK companies.
