Most metropolitan areas have an abundance of tint shop choices. Inrepparttar San Francisco, CA area alone, there are 30 different tint shops within a 30 mile radius. How does a discerning consumer chooserepparttar 102794 tint shop that does quality work? What isrepparttar 102795 difference between a "Dr. Tint" and a "Quality Window Tinting"?

We at Window Tinting Guides suggest that you do a little research. First, compile a list of 5 potential tint shops that are likely to do good work. Ask your friends an co-workers who have tinted their cars which tint shops they chose, look inrepparttar 102796 Yellow Pages and mark downrepparttar 102797 tint shops with large professional advertisements, or come to and get price quotes from a local tint shops.

Once you have this list in-hand, its time to interview each dealer:

  1. How long have you been in business at this location? Do you have other shops inrepparttar 102798 area?

    Good tint shops prosper despite local competition by offering good service at reasonable prices. We suggest that you find a tint shopthat has been in business for 5 or more years atrepparttar 102799 same location. This shows a stable business that will be there years downrepparttar 102800 road if somehowrepparttar 102801 tint goes bad.

    Quality tint shops carry complete lines of window film from one or multiple window filmmanufacturers.
