How Long Does It Take To Tint A Car?

At We Tint Windows, we know that time is precious to you. We also know that every minute without access to your car could cause scheduling issues in your life. That’s why we work as quickly as possible to tint your car, while maintaining our very high standards of work.

We have many customers ask us, ‘How long does it take to tint a car?’ So we thought we’d write about it in some more detail for you. In most cases it takes us between 2–3 hours to tint a car. But, of course, there are a number of contributing factors that affect the time frame.



Below is a list of factors that affect how long it takes us to tint your car windows.


What type of windows does your car have?

The type of windows that your car has will affect the overall time needed to tint your car. Different makes and models of cars have different windows in terms of shape, size and materials used, etc.

To find out how long your type of car windows will take to tint, contact us. We can tell you if your windows are easy and quick or whether they’ll take a little bit longer.


What size windows does your car have?

The size of your windows will affect how long it takes to tint your car. Larger windows mean more time is needed to make sure everything is perfect—whereas, smaller windows are often much quicker.

Contact us to discuss the size of your windows and how they may affect the time it takes to tint your car.


How much of your car do you want tinted?

Obviously, the amount of window tinting you want will affect the time it takes to tint your car. Some people want the whole car done (rear windscreen, all side windows, and a strip on the front windscreen), while other people just want one or two surfaces tinted.

If you’re concerned about time, contact us to discuss how much of your car you want tinted and how long this will take.


What kind of tint do you want on your car?

Generally speaking, most of our tints take a similar amount of time to apply. However, if you’d like to find out if any tints are quicker to apply than others, give us a call.



If you are in a hurry and need your windows tinted as quickly as possible, make sure you let us know when you book in so that we can give you an accurate estimate of how long it will take. Some jobs take longer than others, and some days we have more bookings than others, so if we know you’re in a hurry, we can try to prioritise your car.

Once we have your car, you can decide if you want to go back to work or go and grab a coffee and some food locally. And we’ll let you know as soon as your car is ready for collection.



We always do everything we can to get the job done as fast as possible, but we also want to make sure we do a fantastic job on your tinting.

After all, a job done fast is no good if it’s inferior. So we’ll take the time to get it right the first time—that way you’ll be guaranteed to be happy with the finished product.
