We also rounded up the prices of having window tint installed in Dubai. Through this, you will get a better idea of how much the window tinting service will cost based on what you want done. 

How much does installing window tinting in Dubai cost? 

There are quite a few factors that determine how much you’re going to spend on window tinting. The price depends on the size of your car, which service center you’ll go to, the brand of tint, as well as the material of the film to be used. 

Here are the approximate prices depending on your car’s size and kind of tint you’re going to have installed. Note that the prices in the table below are for the side and back tints only. 

If you want the front tint to be included, you’ll likely shell out AED 850 for it to be done on a small sedan, AED 900 for both a big sedan and SUV, and around AED 950 for a large SUV.

Autocare offers a wide range of auto detailing services, but they seem to be very well-known for their window tinting in particular. 

You can rely on Autocare for fast and reliable service since they are open all days of the week. They are also located in an accessible location in Al Quoz 1, Dubai, so it’s easy to find them. 

Autocare offers 3M tinting in Dubai, with a team of window tinting experts that ensure you get efficient and accurate tinting for your windows. 

They also have industry-grade equipment that ensures accurate auto detailing and cutting of material, which helps drastically reduce the odds of faulty window tinting. We think it’s one of the main reasons they have a reputation for quality and uniform work. 

Autocare also has a wide array of 3M window tints and films to choose from that would cater to any of your needs. However, if you’re looking for another brand or a cheaper alternative, it might be best to go with another option. 

They also offer a warranty for their films and tints. How long the warranty is will depend on the type of film you’ll have installed. 

For example, if you’re getting the 3M™ FX ST Series film, you get two years of warranty. If you’re opting for the 3M™ Color Stable Series instead, you get five years of warranty.

Make sure to take this into consideration when choosing the type of tint you want to install here. Obviously, we generally advise getting the options with longer or more comprehensive warranties, but your needs may vary. 

Pros

  • Available 7 days of the week
  • Accessible location
  • Wide range of tints and films

Cons

  • Does not offer budget packages
  • Limited brand options for the window tints (if you want something other than 3M, it’s best to try elsewhere)

Customer Reviews 

Customer services team is impeccable

“Went there [Autocare] to tint my car’s windows and they actually did a decent job. They however had to redo the front driver window because it was scratched during installation (multiple scratches) and they were more than happy and welcoming to do it. Their prices are very reasonable too, compared to other providers. There is definitely room for improvement, and they are clearly working hard on improving. Their customer services team is impeccable and will make sure you are satisfied at all times. Keep up the good work.” -Yamen Doughan

Good quality 3M

“These guys know exactly what they are doing and how to tint car windows. No messing around and they have enough staff that they were working on three cars at the same time. Good quality 3M and the price was decent!” -Seaseasea H

Modcare speaks highly of their high-quality window films that have ultra-high IR heat rejection due to advanced nanotechnology. We think that this is why they have a reputation for good quality window tinting services. 

A lot of previous customers actually praised the premium quality of the window tints installed on their cars in their feedback. They are also said to have a wide array of brands and shades of tints to choose from, so you can customize your window tinting any way you want to. 

One of the noteworthy things about this service provider is that they seem to be very customer-focused. A lot of customers commented that the staff and store atmosphere are very pleasant, which makes them keep coming back. 

Modcare also has extensive experience on handling window tinting for luxury cars, based on our poll of their customers. This might be something to consider, especially if you own a luxury car, because they have a good track record of handling a wide range of brands, makes, and models. 

Their website is very minimalistic, however, and does not really give an extensive overview of the quality of their tints and their services. This makes it a bit inconvenient to learn more about their services.  

It’s a good thing they are pretty active on Facebook, where you will see their team in action. They have pictures of them performing the services there, as well as answers to queries. 

There are also more customer reviews on their page that can help you determine if this is the shop for you. 

Despite their accessibility online, they do have a small hiccup with IRL accessibility: they’re closed every Friday. Make sure to take this into account when making a reservation. 

Pros

  • High quality window films
  • Highly accessible on their social media platforms and Whatsapp
  • Accommodating staff

Cons

  • Website is not detailed
  • Closed on Fridays

Customer Reviews

High quality work, skilled staff, welcoming owners

I went for a complete package for my brand new Mclaren. Full PPF, window tints, interior protection and rim protection. I was very picky about where to give the car since it is a limited edition model, but am glad I chose to go with Modcare. High quality work, skilled staff, welcoming owners and prices are worth the quality and experience. Great job lads! -Mohammed Karem Alzoabi

Smart Auto’s selling point is that their products are made with a hybrid nanotechnology that rejects heat, which is obvously very useful for Dubai’s climate. 

Aside from window tinting on cars, they also have extensive experience making and installing different kinds of tints such as marine tinting for boats and ships, and decorative tinting for buildings and residential areas. 

Window tinting seems to be the backbone of their business. We think that this is indicative of their specialization and expertise in handling anything involving tinting, which is great. 

The products also have warranties that run from 3 to 10 years, depending on the product. We think that’s pretty good – remember, most companies usually give a warranty that just spans from 2 to 5 years. 

Due to the pandemic, Smart Auto offers free sanitation in every car they work on, which is a good bonus. 

Smart Auto also offers doorstep services, which is convenient if you don’t have the time to bring it directly to their shop. You can easily book an appointment on their website. 

They also offer a variety of services such as paint protection, ceramic coating, car interior detailing and polishing, vehicle graphics, and even car wrapping. This shows their expertise in handling a wide range of automotive services. 

However, their website does not show the full extent of their services and has a lot of unnecessary pop-ups, which makes it hard to check out their offers. 

Fortunately, they’re pretty active on their Facebook page, which may be a good alternative if you’re comfortable with the platform. You can visit their page to see before-and-after pictures of their services, as well as more customer reviews. 

Pros

  • Widely accessible
  • Has doorstep services
  • Has 2 branches

Cons

  • Website feels rather clunky to use

Customer Reviews 

Did a good job

​​”I got the company details from Cobone and did some research. The overall reviews about them were above 4 stars. So I gave a try with ceramic window tinting. I went to the Mirdif branch, it’s inside the basement parking lot of Uptown Mall Mirdif. You can leave your car there and go to the mall to shop. It’s not a very big setup, but they do window tinting, detailing, cleaning, polishing and various other related services. It took only 45 minutes to finish the tinting, and they did a good job. Staff were very friendly and the prices were reasonable.” -Saju Alex 

Highly recommend for tinting

“An Auto Detailing store with good service standards. I would highly recommend for Tinting . I am impressed with the quality of work by Smart Auto Employees!!” -Sandeep Surendran

Ditec, a Swedish company,  is an auto detailing company that prioritizes affordability and efficiency. Most of their previous clients told us that they give a good price for their services and that they finish the work within the time agreed upon. 

Ditec offers a variety of tinting options and brands that you can choose from too, so you can customize your window tint however you wish based on your preferences and budget. 

They claim to employ an effective application process to help make the window tint durable under any weather condition – whether harsh heat or heavy rain. 

Since we got no complaints on tint longevity or durability when surveying their customers, we supposed their claims seem to hold up.

They also have friendly and accommodating staff, in our experience, and appear to be very accessible on their social media platforms and on Whatsapp. They post regularly and reply to queries quickly. 

Aside from social media, you can also book an appointment and get a quotation through their website as well. 

And speaking of the website, it is fairly intuitively designed… but it’s far from perfect. There isn’t a lot of information about their services on there. 

In fact, we even found that it’s better to visit their social media platforms for most things. For example, they only post about their budget offers and discounts on their social media, which tells you it’s better to follow and possibly contact them there. 

By the way, Ditec also offers other automotive services such as washing, ceramic paint protection, car polishing, leather treatment, etc. 

So, they can be a convenient one-stop shop for further automotive services if you want something done aside from window tinting. 

Pros

  • Easily reachable through Whatsapp and other social media platforms
  • Accepts Visa and Mastercard
  • Offers budget packages

Cons

  • Closed on Fridays

To book a car tinting service, you simply have to select ‘car tinting’ and provide details to get a quotation on how much the service will cost. 

This is an intuitive and convenient way to get the service you need. Now you don’t even have to leave the house to book an appointment as booking can be done online. 

If you book the service with collection and delivery, your car will be picked up for the window tint to be applied by their technicians. We think this is great especially for those who are pressed for time and can’t bring their stars to the physical shop. 

They also have a quality check before giving your car back, which we think is useful. Your car will then be delivered to you after the service, fresh and ready to be used. 

You also have parts and labor warranty for one year, which is a better offer than you might think. You see, other service providers’ warranty is mainly for the products – in this case, that would be the window tint.

The difference is that Service My Car also has a labor warranty, which is unique to them. Sure, the warranty isn’t terribly long, but it does also cover more than most competitors’ warranties.

Service My Car offers both industry standard tinting such as 3M car tinting and cheaper alternatives. You can also pick from among different tint levels and shades according to your preferences, needs, and budget. 

They also provide consultations with in-house supervisors who can give you advice based on the make of your car. 

Overall, we think they’re a great option for those who want full-on convenience. However, there is no option for walk-in consultation, so if you prefer that, this might not be the best option for you. 

As with several of our other picks, take note that they will not be open on a Friday. Again, that’s a bit of a drawback for us, especially since a fair number would like the option to have their cars taken to the shop on that day. 

Pros

  • 1 year parts and labor warranty
  • Pickup and delivery service
  • Free car wash with all services

Cons

  • Closed on Fridays
  • Booking process is done solely online – no walk ins

Customer Reviews 

Here’s some feedback from previous customers: 

Made my life so easy

“I used to get service done from another service provider in Al Quoz but still the problem in my car was not identified. Until one day my friend recommended me Service My Car and I tried it. They will pick your car from home/office and deliver it back at the same place. The best part is that they provide a 12 months guarantee on the parts. Made my life so easy.” -Anam Shahid

Happy with the service from start to finish

I was really happy with the service from start to finish. Lots of communication, flexible with collection/drop off and easy to manage with the online applications they used for selecting the service and additional repairs. Special mention to Syed, who was very professional. Will use this company again, for sure.” -David Tangney

Pitstop Arabia also offers doorstep services. Their staff can come over to your place to get the window tinting installed. 

This ensures that you can get the service you need without leaving the comfort of your home. It doesn’t just connect you with window tint installation service providers, but also offers places to get tires, battery, and all kinds of automotive service and repairs.

Customer Reviews

How to Pick the Best Window Tinting Service Provider

To make sure that you get the most bang for your buck and that your window tinting needs are addressed effectively, you have to ensure that you pick the best service provider. Here are a few tips to help you in selecting the best one for the job. 

Ask friends and family or read reviews online

You can ask friends or family for referrals. There is nothing like hearing from someone’s experience from a service provider to help you determine if that’s the best place for you. 

If it’s a service provider they trust, you’ll most likely get good service.  

Word of mouth and the Internet are good resources to compare and contrast services. You can check out what previous clients have said online about the service they got. 

Reading reviews online is a good litmus test on a service provider’s efficiency, pricing, ease of service, work ethics, and even attitude. You have to make sure that they treat their clients right and that they do a thorough job at window tinting. 

Check the service provider’s credentials and track record

It is important that you don’t skimp on window tinting and have it done in a less reputable place just to save money. You might end up paying more to correct faulty window tinting than if you invested in a good service provider from the get-go! 

You have to consider if the service provider is well known for window tinting, if they have already installed window tint on a similar car model as yours, as well as the brands of the tints they are using. 

A good track record is a green flag. It pays to do research because you end up with service that is worth every penny. 

Make sure you have insurance and warranty

Ensuring that you get insurance or a warranty will safeguard you in case issues come up a few days after installation. 

You need to ask how long the warranty is valid for, the process for getting warranty, what services are covered by the warranty, and up to how much the warranty can cover. From these queries, you will get a better idea if you’re getting your money’s worth.
