Vision Tints mobile car window tinting in Modbury delivers a complete car tinting service. Tinting your car windows by yourself, can often be a real hassle, choosing the best brand, shade, and also just lining it up on the glass and applying it, can be a real pain! Taking your car to have the tint applied at a local garage can be a real burden as well, having to take the time off work, or be without your vehicle for several hours while you wait for it to be completed, is often very inconvenient.
At Vision Tints we are completely mobile, and can cover all of the county of Devon and parts of the county of Cornwall including Modbury and local areas. So we will come to your workplace or home, saving you time or valuable holiday days. We offer a lifetime guarantee for your peace of mind, and we are fully insured for all the tinting work we do.
We can also provide tinted sun strips, headlight tints and de-chroming.
What we do
- You make a booking for a time slot and place convenient to you.
- Our uniformed personnel will arrive, only needing access to a powered plug socket.
- We then wash the car windows with 100% pure water to clear away any dirt or microscopic debris previous to tinting them.
- We might need to detach the door cards to access the complete window. This is done to the best professional standard.
- When 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 safeguards all the edges of the tint.
- We are then able to accept payment by, card, bank transfer, or cash.
Which window tint shade is right for your car?
Choosing the right tint shade can be tricky. Here are some things to ask yourself:
- Is the tint for style and looks?
- Is it to look after children or animals from heat or UV rays?
- Is it cover up valuables from sight?
From your responses to the questions our fully trained professionals are able to help you to pick the correct shade. Below are the three main shades to choose from:
Light tint – This is a subtle tint providing protection from UV rays but giving full visibility even in darkness.
Medium tint – This is the same as the factory provides for many cars, it offers shelter from UV rays, heat & does add some privacy.
Blackout tint – This tint is the most commonly selected, it protects from heat, UV rays and gives absolute privacy.
Which car windows is it possible for us to tint?
We are often asked about this. Firstly, let’s explain how 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%. Which means the front windows must let 70-75% of the light through. Most of vehicles the come from the factory today come with tinted glass that is already at (or nearly) the 70-75% limit. Even though to some it doesn’t seem to be tinted, it really is.
If you go ahead and have your front windows tinted your penalties range from (click here for more details):
- A ‘prohibition notice’ banning you using your vehicle on the UK road network until you have the extra tint removed.
- A penalty notice and a court summons.
In addition, another factor to think about is the insurance on your car. By unlawfully tinting your front windows, you may nullify your insurance.
It is also illegal to an illegally install tint to a vehicle’s front windows, with heavy penalties & fines. Vision Tints is a trustworthy, respectable and reliable business that all customers rely on and as such we do not want to break the law. So we decided to not tint your front windows over the legal limit.
We will use a tint meter to make sure you are legal when applying 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 meets our standards! The types of window tint available are:
This tends to be the cheapest tint on the market, it fades, bubbles, and will likely go a blue or purple colour in the end. It isn’t good quality, and we do not recommend it.
This tint is also cheap. It is regularly affected by the rear window heater lines, making it bubble. It can also interrupt radio signals. This isn’t first class, and, won’t last.
Carbon or Charcoal
Top industry-standard tint. We choose to use this at Vision Tints, as it provides great colour, longevity, does not get affected by heater lines and does not affect the radio signals.
The greatest tint money can buy, provided as our premium service. It has great longevity/colour, the heater lines do not affect it, won’t affect radio reception and provides the most UV/temperature protection.
Having said that, not all manufacturers of tint offer the same, after many years in the industry, we have chosen what we believe is the best brand available, and what is more, it is all manufactured in Great Britain, meaning when you hire our services you’re supporting two UK businesses.
