Vision Tints mobile car window tinting in Whimple offers an all in one car window tinting service. Tinting car windows on your own, is often a real hassle, selecting the right shade, brand, and also just aligning it with the window and applying it, can be problematic! Taking your vehicle to be tinted at a local garage can be a hassle too, having to take some time off work, or be without your vehicle for several hours while you wait for it to be finished, is often a big inconvenience.
At Vision Tints we’re completely mobile, and we cover the whole of the county of Devon and parts of Cornwall including Whimple and nearby towns. So we will come to 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 fully insured for all the tinting work we do.
We are able to provide tinted sun strips, headlight tints and chrome removal.
How it works
- You book an appropriate appointment time and place convenient to you.
- Our uniformed staff will arrive, only requiring access to a powered plug socket.
- We then wash the car windows with 100% filtered water to clear away any dirt or microscopic debris previous to tinting them.
- We might need to remove door cards to gain access to the entirety of the window. This is done to the highest possible professional standard.
- After the windows are tinted, we believe its best that you do not use the windows for at least 7 days so that they can completely dry, this protects all the edges of the tint.
- We can then receive payment by, cash, card, or bank transfer.
Which window tint shade is right for your car?
Choosing the correct tint shade can be hard. Here are some things to ask yourself:
- Would this tint be for style and looks?
- Is it to protect children or animals from UV rays or heat?
- Do you want to conceal valuables from sight?
From your responses to those questions our qualified professionals are able to help you to pick the right shade. Here are the three main shades available:
Light tint – This is a subtle tint giving protection from UV rays but giving full visibility even in darkness.
Medium tint – This is a factory tinted look, it offers a safeguard from UV rays, heat & does add a little privacy.
Blackout tint – This tint is the most popular, it protects from heat, UV rays and provides total privacy.
Which car windows is it possible for us to tint?
We are asked this question many times. Firstly, let us describe how tint is measured.
The percentage given for a tint defines how much of the light is allowed through. So, a 20% tint makes it possible for 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 have to let 70-75% of the light through any installed tint. Nearly all of cars made today have tinted glass that is almost at (or close to) the 70-75% allowance. Even though to some this glass doesn’t look tinted, it actually is.
If you go ahead and get your front window glass tinted your penalties range from (click this link for details):
- A ‘prohibition notice’ banning your vehicle being used on the road until you strip the tint from your vehicle.
- A penalty notice and a summons by the court system.
In addition, another factor to consider 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 a vehicle’s front windows, with hefty penalties & fines. Vision Tints is a trustworthy, respectable and reliable company that all customers rely on and because of this we choose not to disobey the law. So we will not tint any front windows beyond the allowed limit.
We use a tint meter to ensure you are allowable when installing 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.
What type of tint do you install?
Not every window tint meets our standards! 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 eventually. Its really not great, and we don’t recommend it.
This tint is also often very cheap. It is damaged by the rear window heater lines, making it bubble. It can also interrupt radio reception. This isn’t a good option, and, will not last.
Carbon or Charcoal
Premium industry-standard tint. It is what we usually use 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 best tint on the market, provided as our premium service. It provides great longevity/colour, is not affected by heater lines, doesn’t affect radio signal and provides the best temperature/UV protection.
All that being said, not all window tint manufacturers offer the same, after many years of experience, we have chosen what we have found to be the best brand available, and even better, it is manufactured in the UK, which means that when you choose our services you’re supporting two UK businesses.
