Vision Tints mobile car window tinting in Bow delivers a complete car window tinting service. Tinting car windows by yourself, is often a real hassle, selecting the best shade, brand, and even just lining it up on the glass and applying it, can be a real pain! Driving your vehicle to be tinted at a local garage can be a hassle too, needing to take some time off work, or be without your car for many hours while you wait for it to be completed, is often not possible.

So we can visit your home or place of work, saving you a lot of time or precious holiday days. We guarantee our work for a lifetime for your peace of mind, and we are completely insured for all the tinting work we do.
We are able to offer tinted sun strips, headlight tints and de-chroming.
How it works
- You book a time slot and a location convenient to you.
- Our uniformed crew will arrive, only needing access to a power point.
- We then wash the car windows with 100% filtered water to clear away any dirt or microscopic debris before we tint them.
- We may need to detach the door cards to gain access to the complete window. This is done to the highest possible professional standard.
- After the windows are tinted, we ask that you do not use the windows for at least 7 days to allow them to completely dry, this protects all the edges of the tint.
- We can then accept payment by, card, bank transfer, or cash.
Which window tint shade is right for your car?
Selecting the correct tint shade can be tricky. Here are some questions to ask yourself:
- Would this tint be to make you car look great?
- Is it to look after children or animals from things like heat & UV rays?
- Do you want keep valuables from sight?
Based on your responses to these questions our qualified specialists are able to help you to select the right shade. These are the 3 main shades to choose from:
Light tint – This is a subtle tint offering protection from UV rays but allowing for full visibility even at night.
Medium tint – This is the same as the factory provides for many cars, it offers shelter from heat, UV rays & also adds a little privacy.
Blackout tint – This tint is our most popular, it provides a guard from UV rays, heat and offers complete privacy.
Which car windows are we able to tint?
We’re asked this question many times. Firstly, let us explain the way tint is measured.
The percentage given for a tint defines how much of the light is allowed through. Therefore a 20% tint permits 20% of light to pass through.
The allowed legal limit on each of the driver’s and the front passenger’s window is 70%. The windscreen is 75%. Which means the front windows must let 70-75% of the light through. The vast majority of cars produced today come with tinted glass that is already at (or nearly) the 70-75% limit. Although to some this glass doesn’t look tinted, it really is.
If you choose to get your front windows tinted this is the potential penalty (click here for more details):
- A ‘prohibition notice’ banning your vehicle being used on the UK road network unless you strip the tint from your vehicle.
- A penalty notice and a summons by the court system.
In addition, something else to think about is your car insurance. By illegally tinting your front windows, it’s possible to nullify your insurance.
It’s also against the law to an illegally install tint to the front windows, with hefty fines and penalties. Vision Tints is a reliable, trustworthy & respected business that all clients rely on and because of this we do not want to break the law. So we decided to not tint front windows beyond the allowed limit.
We test with a tint meter to make sure you are legal 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.
Which of the available tints do you use?
Not every window tint was created equal! The types of window tint available are:
This is often found be the cheapest tint available to the market, it bubbles, fades, and often goes a blue or purple colour in the end. It is quite poor, and we do not recommend it.
This tint is also often very cheap. It is regularly damaged by the rear window heater lines, which cause it to bubble. It can also disturb radio reception. This isn’t a premium tint, and, won’t last.
Carbon or Charcoal
Premium industry-standard window tint. We choose to use this at Vision Tints, as it gives a great colour, its long lasting, is not affected by heater lines and doesn’t affect the radio signals.
The greatest tint available, provided as our premium service. It provides the best longevity/colour, is not affected by heater lines, does not affect radio signal and gives the most temperature/UV protection.
Having said that, not all tint manufacturers offer the same, after many years of experience, we have chosen what we have found to be the best brand available, and what is more, it’s manufactured in the UK, which means that when you choose our services you’re supporting two UK businesses.
