Interested in starting a window tinting business? Learn how to get started quickly and easily.
Window tinting is a very profitable business and is getting more widely used by people from all walks of life. Since having children, I have had two of my vehicles windows tinted to avoid having to put those ugly roller screens in my new car windows and I'm sure many others have done the same.
Although a local shop can bring you a large amount of revenue, try being a bit creative. Consider a "mobile tinting service." I would have gladly paid extra to have someone visit my office to do my windows, rather than having to arrange for my vehicles to be delivered to the tinting shop.
Also, don't stop at the idea of vehicles. We also had to have the back wall of our home (which is 90% glass!) tinted to give added privacy to our living room. This is another great avenue to make very big money, especially if you live in or around an area of large homes.
You should also consider networking with local shops that provide related automobile and home services. Such as a custom tires/wheels shop that doesn't provide tinting for your car leads; and your local window washers for residential and commercial glass leads. This alone could be a great way to get your business started.
You'll need to check with your city, county and state business regulators to see what special permits or licenses are needed for this type of service. Also, check into what insurance and bonding will be required.
