When you buy a new car, you want everything to be perfect when you pick it up at the dealership. This means the shiny paint, tyres and windows tinted ready for the family road trips.
One of the most common question I get asked is should you have the car tinted by the dealership when you pick it up or is it better to get it done after you have taken it on the road.
Tinting at dealers is convenient
Getting the dealer to tint the car at the time you buy it is a good option if you want the car to be perfect when you pick it up from the dealership.
It’s a good experience because everything is ready for you to hit the road and you don’t have anything to worry about later.
Does it cost more to tint the car at the dealers?
Everyone pays more for convenience and that’s what you get for getting your new car tinted by the dealers.
The cost of tinting can change based on the dealership, the type of car and the type of tinting. Many charge around $500 for tinting a new car and based on what some buyers have told us, this can be as high as $700.
In comparison, getting window tinting done on your new car can cost around $400 for a SUV.
What about the quality of the tinting dealers will do on your car?
Whether you get you new car tinted by the dealers or by a private window tinting company after picking it up, the quality of tinting is quite good. They have to do it right as their reputation is on the line. It’s not how it used to be with bubbles in the tint that many of us have seen in older cars.
Many offer a lifetime warranty which gives you a peace of mind that your family will be protected from harmful UV rays.
Should you get your car tinted by the dealers?
There is a good feeling you get when everything is the way you want it to be when picking up your new car. After all you’ve spent a lot of money to get it.
Having your new car tinted by the dealer will mean that it’d be done by the time you have to pick it up, giving you the best experience of picking up a new car without much to worry about before hitting the road. You may pay more at the dealers but that’s what we pay for convenience.
