$1300 tint job - windshield looks like this..,

For perspective, $800 on an Enconoline would be appropriate in my area even if they made an appointment and waited two weeks. When I was in So. Fla you would be lucky to get $450-500 at all.

 

I recently layed clear mask on an older Porsche to prevent more damage and had the plastic on the trunk switch crumble in my hands. Called the dealership and paid to overnight a new one immediately. Fortunately I had priced the job accordingly knowing sh*t happens.

The customer said he may have never noticed it, but if he did my rep in that community would have been lost. Since I got ahead of the situation on the spot my rep was upheld and thus bolsters the justification of my pricing structure. I'm a tad higher than most in my area on purpose, because I've earned it, and deliver the goods as promised.20210821_164604.jpg.3f160e2ffae6b9e44b1e99cd77559395.jpg

hmmm, is the risk the same tinting a lambo (which the pictures didn't look like) vs a kia soul? It's not a high price. We don't know the whole story.  A fair price is what someone is willing to pay. I mean you could say the same thing about the lambo itself lol, A lambo is over priced.  You need an oil change? call and get a quote for a civic oil change and thats what you should pay lol. How about the car insurance? will it be comparable to the kia soul? We need to look at all those same considerations. I feel bad for people who feel negatively about earning money, or guilty if they make over $50k a year, you have the wrong mindset, you're not ripping off the customer charging a price they are willing to pay, you're ripping off your family by not charging that price. 

Lmao just want to comment real quick on the feeling bad for making over the 50k a year mark 😂😂😂😂 I don’t feel two F’s bad for making well an hell over 50k a year from tinting, my tint shop is well surpassing that plus paying  employees, and the electric bill every month, also built the $45k shop  they all work in from giving people an honest price 😂 😂 if you’re over charging you’re over charging, good for you! Come visit my shop, cause I’ll show you what a legit shop that has 110% reliable customers look like! 
damn I’m done here for a while, my best wishes to all you tinters!

but 1300 that stuff better block more than just heat

 

Totally agree... there needs to be *some* justification for whatever price is charged. But.. that is such a wide range of things....  And if you are going to charge that much, you dang well better honor that job if there are issues that need to be addressed afterwards.

That's just it. Where are you getting that he's over charging? I'm happy your shop is doing well. I'm happy your employee's don't wish to earn more money. Like others have said, if he wanted after hours appointment, if he had complications, if he just wanted that tint artist to tint his lambo, the price goes up. In every industry you can get something cheap and something expensive. From Hamburgers to golf clubs. The experience and customer service is different. I am curious as to what an "honest price" is? if someone charges less than you, are they giving their customers a more honest price?

Yeah just cause it's a high dollar car doesn't give a right to price gouge imo.... some cars are harder and I've tried to let a customer know up front but 1300 that stuff better block more than just heat

I mean, he isn't the only tint shop in california lol. There was zero price gouge going on, it wasn't gas or water that he needed to buy and couldn't get it anywhere else. The damn photo isn't even a lambo lol, he might be slamming the tint shop, and we are debating a false situation. Think about photography. What makes one wedding photographer worth $5k and another $45k? Just because there is a cheaper option, doesn't mean the more expensive option is ripping someone off or being dishonest.

I think we need some justification for this entire thread. He's speaking negatively about a tint shop. I'd like to see a receipt from the shop and the amount paid & lets hear from the OP on why he chose that shop specifically in california where there is a tint shop on every corner (which according to others would've been much cheaper)

Had a Lamborghini Aventador tinted this week at Modern Image in San Diego. Two side windows and the front windshield. They charged me over $1300 for the job. On each side of the windshield I’m seeing these things. I assume this is not done properly?   It’s been 3-4 days and they haven’t changed at all.

Why did you choose to get your Lamborghini tinted at "Modern Image"? Can we see a picture of your lamborghini and the receipt for the tint job?

Sorry for my bitterness in my last post!  No hard feelings really! 
but where he’s overcharged is the fact of the materials used an the time, I myself an my workers have done plenty of high end cars like this one. But like you said we need a full picture of the car an a better picture inside to really see if it’s a true Lamborghini or not! With them pictures it could be anything and he just ain’t happy an said it was a high end car! 
The side note of my shop we charge a flat rate on 99% of vehicles, the other 1% being the two an only vw bugs an the great vette back glass, we do charge an extra $100 for them, my 6 employees and me can get them done in one shot or maybe it take us 3,4,5 shots. It just depends on the day. I’ve had one call me that’s   tried a bug three times an wanted help an I got it done in one try, also it’s been the other way around I’ve had a bug and vette that’s gave me so much trouble I passed it to someone else an they got it first try. 
Moral of my story is, let’s see more pictures (which I doubt the OP will ever come back) 

and we can go from there!
