How many cars do you tint?

Recommended Posts

Ok guys I have been critiquing my skills for a while. I am quite curious, (although it depends on several factors) how many cars do you expect to tint on any given day? If I tint from home, can I expect to average 2 cars per day with little marketing? 

If you can average $150 profit per car, 2 cars a day would mean big bucks. I hate to be nosy, and I don't expect a straight forward answer, BUT.. Are there any self-employed tinters making 6 figures? I am very good with marketing.. I am just getting my feet wet and want to hear those hidden "hard to hear truths about the business...." Any input is greatly appreciated

The key is maximizing profit with upgrades especially if you are only doing 2 vehicles per day.  $150 per car is great considering the low overhead, but $250-$300 per car sounds much better.  Windshields and sunroofs are also great add-ons to bump up the profit.  I think 3-4 vehicles per day is ideal with upgrades, tons of money without overworking yourself.

My shop (myself, and 2 employees) we try to do one car per hour (whether it be front 2 doors, or a whole car)...


Ideally (no way to control it really) would be if we could just do 4-5 whole cars per day, that would put us at our daily revenue goal...


But a typical day usually consists of:

2 or 3 whole cars

A back half or two

and a couple front 2s...


so somewhere around $1,200 / day or so.... BUT... we also have a commercial building, payroll, insurance, marketing (about $4k / mo), etc etc


Here's this weeks schedule (we're open Tue - Sat)
