Vision Tints mobile car window tinting in Blackpool provides an all in one car tinting solution. Tinting car windows on your own, is often a real hassle, selecting the right brand, shade, and even just aligning it with the window and applying it, can be problematic! Taking your vehicle to have the tint applied at a local garage can often be a real burden as well, having to take the time off work, or losing your car for many hours while you wait for it to be finished, is often very inconvenient.

- You book a time slot and a location convenient to you.
- Our uniformed personnel will arrive, only needing access to a powered plug socket.

- We may need to remove door cards to access the complete window. This is done to the highest possible professional standard.
- Once the windows have been tinted, we believe its best that you don’t use the windows for at least a week so that they can dry fully, this protects the edge of the tint.
- We’re then able to receive payment by, cash, card, or bank transfer.
What window tint shade is the right choice for your vehicle?
Selecting the correct tint shade can be hard. Here are some things to ask yourself:
- Would this tint be to make you car look great?
- Is it to protect children or animals from UV rays or heat?
- Do you want cover up valuables out of sight?
Based on your responses to those questions our qualified professionals can help you to select the right shade. Here are the three main shades available:
Light tint – This is a subtle tint giving 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 & also adds some privacy.
Blackout tint – This tint is our most widely selected, it can safeguard from UV rays, heat and gives absolute privacy.
Which car windows can we tint?
We’re regularly asked this question. Firstly, let’s explain how tint is measured.
The percentage produced for a tint defines the amount of light that is allowed through. So, a 20% tint allows 20% of light to pass through.
The allowed legal limit on both the driver’s and the front passenger’s window is 70%. The windscreen is 75%. Which means the glass at the front must let 70-75% of the light through any installed tint. The vast majority of vehicles the come from the factory today come with tinted glass that is almost at (or nearly) the 70-75% maximum. Even though to some this glass doesn’t look tinted, it really is.
If you go ahead and have your front windows tinted the potential penalty will be (click this link for details):
- A ‘prohibition notice’ stopping your vehicle being used on the road unless you strip the tint from your vehicle.
- A penalty notice and a court summons.
In addition, another factor to think about is your car insurance. By illegally tinting the front windows of your car, you may invalidate your insurance.
It is also against the law to an illegally install tint to the front windows, with heavy penalties & fines. Vision Tints is a reliable, trustworthy & respected business that all clients rely on and because of this we do not want to disobey the law. So we choose not to tint your front windows beyond the legal limit.
We always use a tint meter to make sure you are correct when installing any 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.
Which of the available tints do you install?
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. It isn’t good quality, and we do not recommend it.
This tint is also often very cheap. It is damaged by the rear window heater lines, which cause it to bubble. It can also interrupt radio reception. This is not first class, and, won’t 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, is not affected by heater lines & doesn’t affect the radio reception.
The most superior tint we can buy, offered as our premium service. It has the best longevity/colour, the heater lines do not affect it, doesn’t affect radio reception and gives the best temperature/UV protection.
Having said that, not all window tint manufacturers are the same, after many years in the industry, we have selected what we believe is the best brand available, and even better, it is all manufactured in Great Britain, which means that when you choose our services you’re supporting two UK companies.
