Considering getting your car windows tinted? You’re probably aware that there are a few different options available to you – going to a window tint specialist, letting your car dealership take care of it, or doing it yourself.
If you’ve already decided that DIY is off the cards for you, you’re left with the question: dealership or specialist? Which is the best option?
Today, we’ll look at why choosing a window tint specialist is the best decision for you and your vehicle.
If you’ve just purchased a new vehicle, you might have been given the option of leaving the tint job to your dealership. You might also be thinking that it sounds convenient to let them take care of the ‘extras’, even if it costs more than going to a tint specialist. But have you thought about exactly who will be doing the job?
Choosing Cheap Providers and Products
Yes, car dealerships can offer you tint services, and many do contract the work out to a reputable tint shop. But many also simply choose the cheapest provider and product, to cut their own expenses. By choosing a professional window tinting company you’ll know that you’re getting exactly what you’re paying for, and cutting out the middleman.
Using In-House Tinters
Alternatively, and even more risky, is dealerships who have an employee of the store tint the cars, advertised as their “in-house tinter”. The reality of many of these in-house tinters are that the dealership has paid for an employee to take a crash course in the application of window tinting, to make them more money on new car extras.
These in-house tinters are expected to be as good, or better, than someone who has been installing for years. Why pay more to a dealership for this lower quality work?
In contrast to this, with a window tint specialist, you’ll know exactly what you’re getting – an experienced, qualified professional who works with window tint every day of the week.
Experience and Skill
Installation of window tinting is an art that must be developed over time. A quality window tinting company will use skilled installers and pay them well for their expertise and quality of work.
We spend a lot on our cars. You may have just spent anywhere from $25,000 to $90,000 or more on your new car – do you really want to risk the dealership using cheap low-quality products or workmanship on it?
Supporting Local Business and Ethically-Made Products
Many low cost manufacturers from less developed countries are producing window film at very low prices, and with very cheap labour. The quality of these tint films are dubious, as well as their ethics.
Supporting your local tint specialist guarantees that you’re getting what you pay for, and also that the person doing the job is receiving fair wage and payment for their services – win, win!
At the end of the day, you want the vehicle you have just purchased to be enhanced by a window tint that’s been professionally installed by an expert. For this, we recommend steering clear of dealership tinting and leaving it to the professionals.
