Tint Job gone Bad

I took my brand new 2011 camaro to a company in Lakeland to have the windows tinted. They called and said the car was ready and when I went to pick it up the owner of the tint company said that he did the tint and it looked great, but....... he backed a truck into my new car and dented the front end.
Not only did he wreck my car, he then proceeded to charge me full price for the tint job. Now I have a couple of weeks of grief with his insurance company to get my car fixed as well as paying full price for the window tint. Does this seem appropriate to you all?

He should have done the tint job for free....just as a "I'm sorry I messed up." He didn't have to because insurance will take care of the loss, but just as an act of good faith and generosity, he should have done it for free.

I agree.

Try giving the guy a good nudge in that direction and see what he does. Could be he's just waiting to see if you mention it. If you don't, then he'll gladly let you pay full price on the tint.

Wow. Totally absurd to charge full price after wrecking your car. Stingray chevy right near you does camaro tint everyday for $99 and is warrantied like the car. Tint shop could havr and should have saved some face.

I can't believe you paid for the tints.. If That were to have happened to me I would have called the police for a report, told them that as a courtesy for my troubles the tints should be free and if they weren't I'd tell everyone on the Internet what an irresponsible shop they had.. Would never had paid them for the Job....

How did the tints come out? Bubbles,how are there cutouts? Good job? Wow I can't believe you let them off the hook...

Try using the power of the internet to get him to give you this for free...
Let him know in no uncertain terms that you have access to many,many camaros,mustangs,and other car clubs.. and unfavorable reviews may be in order..
good luck..

Don't go to Alarms ETC either. They have a couple shops in Lakeland as well as in Tampa.

He definitely should have done it for free, he obviously doesn't care about word of mouth and his reputation. My tint shop Superior Tint, that's all they care about. They would rather make less money and have you as a forever customer to refer your friends.

Never leave your car alone at any of those place's and hand them the key's always stay with your cars if you dont have the time to wait for it pay a littil extra for someone to come to your house and do it or set up a appointment at your local shop....only if your gonna do major engine work or body work then leave your car. I worked next to a shop where ppl used to leave there car's there and come back later some of the thing's i had seen is not good........In my opinion is get a lawyer to sit down with you and talk about any possibility of sueing him you have.....he wrecked your baby if it was me i would of sued him all ready I love my V6 and if anyone wrecked them im coming after there ass.


And as far as the tint's go i would of done the same as Redragon called police set up report and then i would of payed him and then set a moton in small claim's court's and have my money refunded and maybe a littil extra.
