That is a good question! The truth is life is busy, and a lot of times, our clients do not have the time to wait around at a shop. If that is the issue you are facing, mobile tint might be just the answer you are looking for.
Thousands of businesses exist on a mobile service platform. They are successful and well known for high-quality work and professional products.
Mobile window tinting service is no different!
NO! While a garage can sometimes make things easier, your installation can be done just about anywhere.
NO! the determining factor should be the reputation (reviews, etc.) and legitimacy (Licensing) of said business. Don’t fall prey to scare tactics.
The short answer is low overhead. Retail locations do not come cheap. In the end, that cost will be passed along to the consumer. FACT!
ANY business can disappear overnight regardless of being mobile or a storefront business. Reputation and legitimacy are the determining factors here. Just more scare tactics!
YES! it is possible, and we do it regularly. HOWEVER, it is up to the installer to exercise sound judgment and know when not to. If you have a 20 MPH headwind, it’s probably not a good idea.
Choosing whether you should use a mobile service does come down to your needs and time constants. Again the truth is many folks do not have the time to wait around for a shop to perform this service. Please don’t get us wrong shops defiantly have their place and are without a doubt much more comfortable than operating a mobile service. We will agree with that part.
Professional Window Tinting of Central FL LLC has been performing mobile services for over 25 years. We have been performing this service accurately and regularly. It is, without a doubt, much more challenging and takes longer, but we have been successful in providing high-quality installations to our client’s satisfaction.
Some of the challenges are working in other environments while preserving the cleanliness of the work. Generally, a mobile service working out of a client’s garage can be beneficial, but not always. We are sure you will agree some garages are not as clean as others, and poor lighting conditions can easily affect the outcome of the job if the available garage is clean and very well lit, GREAT! That’s going to work out more than likely. On the other hand, if the said garage has not been cleaned in years and has settled dust and grime all over the place, the chances are much higher for contamination to find it’s way into the finished tint job.
A mobile service working out in driveways and parking lot also present there challenges as well. This is where we have a difference of opinion with many in the window tinting business. A lot of folks would like you to believe that it is not possible to perform a clean mobile tint installation outside. The truth is that assertion is entirely false, and we will dismiss that one as mere scare scare tactics. It IS possible! We do it every day.
Limits do apply in that certain weather conditions will limit the installer’s ability to install the product expertly. Things like rain, wind conditions, poor lighting, etc. However, if you only have a mild breeze (5 mph or so), this is very manageable and easily dealt with. These conditions need to be taken into consideration.
In the end, it comes down to the installer’s mobile tint experience and abilities. As a consumer, you should do your research on the company you are considering to execute your mobile service . Consider the reviews for this prospective company. What is the feedback that is being written about them? Is it positive or negative? What are people saying about the result? This public forum will tell you a lot about what kind of business you are considering and what your experience will more than likely be like.
Other things to consider would be licensing. Are they legitimate? For our mobile tint business, we have an LLC, city, and county license. These licenses are put in place to protect the consumer. If you are considering using someone who has no licensing at all, you could be leaving yourself without any protection at all. A legitimate mobile service business will have no issue providing these credentials to you.
Insurance is another determining factor. It is the business’s responsibility to be adequately insured to protect you in the event of accidental damage during the installation? Again these credentials should be provided upon request. Having the insurance company email the client directly also helps to alleviate concerns of being insured and is reasonable to ask for!
A website is another way to check on a company. We are not talking about a Facebook or Instagram page, either. Go to the web page for the said business and search the text if you run across text that does not entirely focus on the product and services you might have an issue.
If the text of a web site disrespects, tears down, calls names, employs unfounded scare tactics, or otherwise operates outside of honesty and integrity, you might have to ask yourself the question, should I do business with them? True professionalism will focus on the subject at hand (the service) and will avoid speaking anything about the competition or anyone in the industry for that matter.
There are a lot of good businesses out there for the consumer. We would recommend researching them before hiring. In this way, you are more than likely going to have a much smoother experience.
