We have those $99 tint shops that pop up here and there . The truth is they don't last long . I think it's a combination of quality work , film, and keeping consistent store hours. We also have 4 or 5 shops that have been around a long time.. I'm in Panama City fla it's nothing like Atlanta , Birmingham etc. If your a turd tint shop here it takes about 5 minutes for people to figure it out.Good work and reputation are everything here because of the size of Bay county ( population 130,000 ) give or take 10,000. An example of my pricing Camry, Altima ,fusion-149.95 F150, silverado 149.95 expedition, sequoia, suburban, 219.95 BMW , Mercedes 2,3,5 series 169.95 I stay away from the higher end models purely because of liability issues .yes I can tint them but it doesn't make sense to me because I stay covered up with every day run of the mill cars. In a nut shell I'm happy tinting a 2009 impala with beach sand and McDonald bags in the floor. Strip and retints start at 249.95 and I do my best to stay away from them. I've paid my dues. I work alone always have . So there you have it if your in a relatively small town , do good work use good material . And make sure your shop is air conditioned it cuts the stress level way down and your nicer.
