Why tint?

Window tint not only looks good, but is beneficial in a number of ways.

  • Window tinting provides 99% UV protection, protecting you and your family from the sun’s harmful rays
  • Protects vehicle and property interior from fading
  • Blocks glare for safer driving
  • Acts as an insulator to keep the vehicle & home cool in summer and warm in winter
  • Provides security and privacy
  • Help reduce air conditioner running costs

What’s the $199 Any Car Deal?

Our popular “Any Car $199” deal started in 2007. 10 years later we are proud to say that we still can offer this promo, despite prices of everything else going up around us! For $199, you receive Carbon 35% VLT window film which is the darkest legal window film in NSW. It is backed by a nationwide lifetime warranty.

Please note we do not tint the front windscreen as this is illegal due to visibility issues. Offer is valid for cars, utes, sedans. Please contact your store for a quote for SUV, 4WD, Van and People Movers. Our prices are based on not only the amount of film used, but the amount of work required to install the film. Some vehicles are a lot more time consuming that others which is why some vehicles will cost more, even though they appear to only have “small” windows.

Will my tint turn purple or get air bubbles?

We guarantee for the lifetime that you own your vehicle or home, that the window film will not turn purple, go hazy, get air bubbles or adhesive fail. This guarantee is provided by the manufacturer and you are covered Australia wide. In the event that something should happen, the manufacturer will replace the window film at no cost to you. Please ensure you keep your receipt and warranty for proof of purchase. We cannot replace any film without your warranty or receipt. If you sell your vehicle, the warranty is not transferable to the new owner.

How dark/light should I go?

The darkest legal tint in NSW is 35% VLT for family cars. Commercial vehicles may have a darker VLT on the rear windows. Please refer to the RMS website for more information on tinting laws. Please note that installing darker than legal film on your car will defect your vehicle and you may be denied insurance if visibility was the cause of an accident.

Some glass already has a slight VLT rating, therefore you may need to install a lighter film than 35% to keep it legal. (i.e 38% or 40% etc) depending on the car. Please check with your car manufacturer and advise us if you will require a lighter film.

Each film have their own unique features. If you are after an affordable film our Carbon range is extremely popular. We also have High Performance metalised films that offers excellent heat rejection or our prestige range of Nano-Ceramic Films offer fantastic heat rejection and scratch resistance for those with young children. Feel free to visit us to view samples and receive an obligation free quote.

What do you tint?

Tint Ur Ride can tint all glass windows on houses, cars, motorhomes, boats, shops and businesses. On cars, we tint all windows except the front windscreen.

For boats, we can tint them in or out of the water provided the weather is relatively calm.

For homes and business, we have a large range of films from reflective, frosted, decorative and more.

Where do you service?

If you would like your car tinted, you will need to bring your car to one of our stores. For all home, boat and business tinting, we can come to you at a time that suits you.

Window film is installed on the inside of the car windows, so we can tint rain/hail/shine.

When are you open?

Tint Ur Ride is open Monday – Friday from 8:00am to 4:30pm. Some of our stores are also open on Saturdays by appointment.

We are closed on public holidays and most of our stores close over the Christmas and New Year break.

What is window stripping/removal?

Window stripping is the removal of unwanted window tint that has faded, turned purple or hazy or got air bubbles. This sometimes occurs when the original tint has aged or a poor quality tint was applied. Window tint can also deteriorate if it has been cleaned with harsh chemicals like Windex. We can remove old window tint using professional tools that will protect the glass and rear demisters. If you are selling your car, Tint Ur Ride recommends you remove unattractive old tint for safety and visibility reasons.
