Tinting Time

Just out of curiosity, what is the avg time you tell a customer it will take to tint their car? Not a truck or suv that you only have two windows to do, but a full sized 4 door car. If I'm not pulled away to have to go work on something else, start to finish I'm at about 2-3 hours. Is that considered a good time? I know I'll get faster as I get more experience, but I was just wondering about where the rest of you were on your tinting time per car so that I may have a general goal to shoot for.

So it seems as I'm close...but yes I agree quality over quickness any day. I work mostly on our lot cars so I've got a lot of time to do a car if I need it, but when customers do come in my supervisiors are wanting the vehicles done in like an hour. Not saying its not possible, but I can't do that yet. And from what I've seen most ppl can't, so now I know it's their judgment that's off, not mine, haha. Thanks for the input peeps.

dont worry about time..be more concerned about quality...clients will come back to you more for a quality job then how fast you did their car.

:rollin way more than important than time

Yeah, just starting out at min. about 3 hrs. always inspect your work as well.. because I have done some cars that looked good when I got finished, then 30 min later you get a small finger or something! There a lot easier to deal with if find them early :rollin

yeah, I had a mazda 3 that I tinted last week for a customer. And I had one on the bottom of the back rollups that wouldn't stay down. I even heated it a bit and it would stick for about ten mins then pop back up. In the time I washed it (I always wash the cars I tint when I'm done) and drove it back to the pick up line the sucka had popped up again. I finally just brought it back to my bay where there's a heater and just left it in there til the customer showed up in hopes that being in a warmer place it would be stuck down for good by the time they got here. They didn't come back so guess it worked....
