Frequently Asked Questions about car window tinting

Q) How long will it take to tint my car?

A) An average sedan takes between 1 1/2 - 2 hours. If there is old plastic film that needs to be removed it does take several hours longer depending on the old tint coming off.

Q) Will the film go all the way to the edge and will the rear window be in one piece?

A) On 95% of vehicles the film will go all the way to the edges and the rear window can be installed in one piece. The exception to this is a few rare vehicles where this procedure is not possible.

Q) I have been quoted $180 for a lifetime tint by someone else. Why ?

A) Unless you have considerable experience with the various types of tints, the average person cannot tell the difference by looking at them. Therefore it comes down to a matter of trust. There are numerous small operators offering cheap tinting from their vans. Unfortunately they can be hard to locate again when warranty work is required. A warranty is only as good as the company who gives it. Solartint has been here for over 30 years with branches all around Australia. You can trust us to give you what you are paying for.

Q) I have been quoted much more by a large company for a top of the range film. Why?

Therefore our branches don`t have to pay exorbitant monthly franchise fees or royalties thus eliminating the need to pass on those ridiculous costs to our customers. In short,Solartint offers it`s customers the Best products at the Best possible prices.

Q) I have seen some cars on the road with bubbly tint. Why does this happen?

A) Cars fitted with plastic or dyed film will bubble and blister eventually. It is not the quality of the installation it is simply a low end quality product that only lasts a maximum of 3 to 5 years. Prior to today's metallised tints, all films were plastic or dyed.
