The automotive MDs at Tint Doctor hand-cut tinted films to fit snugly on windows and windshields. Drivers can choose from tint levels that range from 5% to 50% and leave their car in the trusted hands of the technicians, who will then cover the glass with high-performance films. Aside from its aesthetic appeal, tinted film blocks harmful UV rays and prevents interior upholsteries from fading, drivers from burning, and bobble-heads from stripping down to their skivvies. The docs can also remove unwanted tints and glue without risk of damaging or scratching the glass.
For 15 years, TintMax has provided vehicles with both cosmetic and practical upgrades. Window tinting––the shop's specialty––is done with computer-plotting technology, which produces films customized to fit any make and model, thereby eliminating sloppy-looking jobs and ensuring that cars never show up at a party wearing the same tint as the host. In the detailing department, staffers pry off surface dirt from cars with thorough hand washes and then rebuild show-room sheens with orbital waxes and interior conditioners. After cars are cleaned and groomed, they can strut into TintMax’s electronics section and slip into a new Kenwood stereo or prep for winter with a Viper remote starter.

Viper remote starters enable drivers to rev engines at a distance using their iPhones, and full detailing services spruce up ins and outs with cleaning measures performed by hand and occasionally foot.
