Car Tinting FAQ
Your Questions Answered
For most new car owners, picking the right tint and tint provider for tinting car windows might seem like an overwhelming task. Plus, the fact that most suppliers use different terms and price structures for their products and services don’t help either.
However the process of tinting a car is quite simple, if you understand a few basics and pick the right tint provider. Some of the most frequently asked questions that most car owners ask are:
- Is tinting car windows legal?

Our range of tint film ranges from transparent to the darkest legal tints for you to choose from. Speak to our friendly team of professionals who are more than happy to walk you through your options in tint shades that match your personality and lifestyle.
- How much does car window tinting cost?
The cost of car window tinting depends largely on the type of tint film that you pick and the car that is being tinted. At Tint a Car, we stock a wide range of tint films; so whether you’re after a budget tint film or premium tint, we’ve got you covered.
- How long does the tinting process take?
Another common tinting FAQ is time requirements of tinting. The time taken to tint your car would depend of the size of your car. However, as a typical guide, an average sedan takes approximately two hours, whereas an SUV might take about an hour longer. However, if you’re replacing a tint on your car, you might need to consider the time required to remove the old film and prepare the glass surface for the new film.
But! One great thing about Tint a Car is that most stores offer a courtesy car or pick-up/drop-off service so you’re not inconvenienced. For special requests and more precise information, speak to your nearest Tint a Car store.
- How do I clean my windows after tinting them?
Cleaning your car windows could be done by using a soft lint-free cloth and a mild cleaning agent, approximately 21 days after your windows have been tinted. Do not clean the glass during the drying period – the first 21 days after tinting.
