Default Window tint quote

My tint is peeling and gross. I was quoted 400 to remove it and replace. All glass minus the windshield. Having never been in this market is this a fair price? Lifetime warranty for what it's worth.

I just had mine done in March and it was $350ish, including a UV tint on the windshield. However, my windows did not have tint on them and I know from experience, removing old tint sucks. So that price doesn't sound too unreasonable.

I removed 10 year old tent with easy using a hand held steamer $ 15 from walmart, took time to get it started but once the edge came up it was easy to steam and peel the back glass. Sides wear easier. I used alcohol and a few other glass cleaners for the left over glue. Probably took an hour or so from start to finish.
I was worried the tinters would cut the defrost lines removing it.
They charged $180 to tint 15% all glass minus windshield.

I was quoted 400. I was also told our cars are a huge pain in the ass to do. The guy who gave me a qoute said last 3s he did it took him 6 hours to do..He acted like he really didnt want to do it.

The hatch has an odd shape that frustrates most. 400 to remove and tint is good.

I used this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Easily removed two layers of ancient tint and the majority of the glue, then I mopped the bathroom!

Oddly enough I own a very nice steamer. And certainly have the ability to deal with this. But overall I don't want to. And it seems the price is in the range of reasonable I could save 150 or so removing old tint and I have the tools, but for that much I'd rather pay. And I don't want to do the tint application for fear I get one bubble I couldn't live with it and would have to start over. I have appointment to get it done tomorrow

Price sounds about right, i got my windshield tinted for 90 bucks from a guy doing it out of garage (very well know and reputable guy in my area). He was charging 75 bucks to remove the rest of the tints in the car plus 175 to install new ones.

I would suggest you removing the tints yourself, its super easy with cleaning chemicals and black garbage bags. Plenty of YouTube videos on it.

The few extra bucks you save, you should upgrade to ceramic tints. It actually makes a difference. Once had a car with ceramic tints in the front and regular in the rear. You can physically feel the difference in radiation coming in to the car when you put your hand behind the glass. Plus it helps a lot more to protect the old interior!

the job has been done. just regular type tint 20% all around minus windshield. he did a good job, and commented it sucked to do and he handnt done one before. He was able to do the rear in one piece. previous peeling tint was in 3 pieces. It was more than I guessed initially but it seems in the ballpark. and I do get lifetime warranty, which I specifically asked if it covered bubbles and peeling. he said the only thing it didn't cover was if say, you had an accident and cause a screw driver against it and cut/tore the tint.
