Vision Tints mobile car window tinting in Stonehouse delivers a complete car window tinting service. Tinting car windows by yourself, can be a disaster waiting to happen, selecting the best brand, shade, and even just aligning it with the window and applying it, can be problematic! Taking your car to be tinted at a local garage can often be a real burden as well, needing to take time off work, or having no vehicle for many hours while you wait for it to be finished, is often not possible.
At Vision Tints we’re completely mobile, and can cover the whole of the county of Devon and parts of Cornwall including Stonehouse and local areas. So we can visit your workplace or home, saving you time or precious 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 are able to provide tinted sun strips, car light tints and de-chroming.
What we do
- You make a booking for a time slot and place that suits you.
- Our uniformed staff will arrive, only requiring access to power.
- 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 best professional standard.
- After the windows are tinted, we request you don’t use the windows for at least a week so that they can completely dry, this preserves the edge of the tint.
- We’re then able to accept payment by, bank transfer, cash, or card.
Which window tint shade is right for your vehicle?
Choosing the right tint shade can be tricky. Here are some questions to ask yourself:
- Is the tint for style and looks?
- Is it to look after children or animals from UV rays or heat?
- Is it keep valuables from view?
From your responses to these questions our qualified specialists can help you to pick the right shade. Here are the 3 main shades available:
Light tint – This is a subtle tint giving 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 protection from UV rays, heat & does add some privacy.
Blackout tint – This tint is our most widely selected, it can safeguard from UV rays, heat and offers total privacy.
Which car windows are we able to tint?
We’re regularly asked this question. Firstly, let us describe how tint is measured.
The percentage given for a tint defines how much of the light is allowed through. Therefore 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%. Meaning the front windows have to let 70-75% of the light through any installed tint. Most of vehicles produced today come with tinted windows that are already at (or close to) the 70-75% maximum. Even though to some people it doesn’t look tinted, it really is.
If you choose to have your front window glass tinted the potential penalty will be (click this link for details):
- A ‘prohibition notice’ banning your vehicle being used on the UK road network unless you have the extra tint removed.
- A penalty notice and a summons by the court system.
In addition, another factor to think about is your car insurance. By illegally tinting the front windows of your car, you may nullify your insurance.
It’s also illegal to an illegally install tint to a vehicle’s front windows, with heavy fines and penalties. Vision Tints is a trustworthy, respectable and reliable business that all clients rely on and because of this we choose not to disobey the law. So we decided to not tint front windows over the allowed limit.
We will use a tint meter to ensure your car’s windows are correct when applying a 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 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 affected by the rear window heater lines, making it bubble. It can also disturb radio reception. This is not a good option, and, won’t last.
Carbon or Charcoal
Premium industry-standard tint. It is what we usually use at Vision Tints, as it provides great colour, longevity, is not affected by heater lines & doesn’t affect the radio signals.
The greatest tint money can buy, provided as our premium service. It provides the best longevity/colour, is not affected by heater lines, won’t affect radio and provides the best temperature/UV protection.
All that being said, not all manufacturers of tint are the same, after many years in the industry, we have selected what we have found to be the best brand available, and even better, it’s manufactured in Great Britain, meaning when you hire our services you’re supporting two UK businesses.
