average time it takes you to tint a vehicle?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, how long does it take a novice to intermediate tinter to install the film? I dont konw what im doing wrong. Before I installed on a dodge caravan or a jeep cherokee in 40mins each. Now any car, im taking 1-6 hours. What the heck am i doing wrong and how can I adjust to improve to make more profit?

 

It would be great if you list the steps of what you do while approaching the vehicle and pictures of your tools/equipment beside you. My work area is a mess, i barely use an apron to carry my tools so theyre scatttered and always have to waste time looking. Also how do you make or buy those film roll holders to place on the walls so I dont have to open a tint box everytime?

 

THANKS!

Organization is for sure a key to saving time, also u need to find a system that u follow on every vehicle, for me it is pull car in, establish if it needs felt taped, and or will bottom seals come out, wipe down all windows, put soap on back glass to let dry, cut film, if by myself I will usually clean each window as I go and do back window last, finally do any touch ups and wipe car down and ship it, most cars are between 45- 1.25 for me. When I first started I was around 2.5-3 hrs

Yup! When I used to work out of my garage or first opened the shop I was a hot mess always looking for stuff. You need to reduce your steps. I wasted so much time. Get a tool belt for starters. We also use a mobile tray or cart. 

 

Coming up with a process that is good for you takes time, trial and error. I'm not going to list every step I do but I always start off cleaning the exterior of the car and then deep cleaning the interior. That's just so I'm doing all those things in one swoop. Then develop your own process. Good luck

 organize organize organize is the key to success. knowing where all your tools are saves time. Always try new ways of doing something. watch how other tinters install certain windows for examples the rear windows to the quarters windows. everyone has tricks. i mean i average about 1000 vehicles a year, and every vehicle is done differently. i’ve been tinting for 20 years and i still learn new tricks from guys that just started tinting. practice makes perfection. good luck.
