I definitely made the right choice when I took my business to Sunshades! After researching other local tint businesses, I decided on Sunshades which was refered to me by a co-worker of mine who also had a great experience with these guys. It was nice to be able to watch them work on my vehicle as you can see everything they do through the big glass window. That was a big plus for me! I'm picky and I like to know how my vehicle is being handled. Being able to watch them work on my car put my mind at ease. The installers were very polite and answered all my questions professionally. I highly recommend this place for all your tinting and audio needs. Making plans to return for a new stereo!
If I could rate with zero stars I would!! We took our new car there to have the windows tinted. There was dirt under the tint, bubbles, peeling off the back window and the front passenger window the tint folded over and wrinkled on it! When we contacted Robert the owner we were treated very badly as he yelled, cussed, and hung up on me and my husband several times. We did not want him to fix anything because even after he "fixed" one window it still was messed up. So he finally told me to "come get my money" and hung up on me. The next day my husband went to get our refund and Robert was not there. He was told he would be there in 30 mins. After and hour and a half and he still was not there my husband called Robert on his cell phone as the number is on his business card. Robert yelled and cussed at my husband and told him he had better things to do than to get to the shop to refund my husbands money and hung up again. So my husband waited at the shop and when Robert arrived he became irate with my husband, pushed him and threatened to shoot him as he reached for something on his hip. My husband at that point left and had to call the police...... All I can say is WOW!!!! Why in the world would ANY one go to this business is beyond me!!! Here is my warning to everyone... AVOID this place at all cost!!! We also contacted another window tint place and when we told them of our experience at Sunshades they laughed as the guy told us he used to work for Robert and that he is crazy!
Will go back for sure! – After having tint done on my truck in 2009, I decided to come back and have them do a sub/amp install on my new car. Robert did not disappoint. I called this morning and he got me in right after work. Price was $50-$100 less than best Buy and it was way fast. The owner is personable and has never tried to sell me anything else or changed the price after an install. You should go here if you need one of these types of services done.
Owner is the BEST! – I took my husbands truck in before Christmas of last year to have his windows tinted as a Christmas gift. I spoke to Robert the owner, and was told if my husband was unhappy with the work they would redo the work. Robert and the guys at Sunshades are GREAT! Finally a company that stands by thier word. My husband found some problems with the tint and it was a simple phone call and a short drive to have what my Husband wasn't happy with fixed.
So needless to say when we wanted another vehicle tinted just this week, we of course called on the guys at Sunshades. My husband and I love the NO BS that comes with Robert and his company. They tell it like it is and stand by thier word as well as thier work. As far as we're concerned it's the only place to get tint done and we plan to check out Sunsades again in the future for other accessories for our vehicles. Thanks Robert ! You guys ROCK! P.S. it doesn't matter if you go to the South location or the North you will get the same great service. We've been to both.
These guys are great!!! – I went with Sunshades based on other user reviews. Great staff; didn't try to up-sell me. Better value than the other area shops. I highly recommend these guys to all my friends!
Great Experience - Professional Results – Robert manages a very clean and professional operation. I had three of my vehicles tinted at Sunshades, my wife's Audi TT, my black VW Rabbit, and my son's GTI - all came out looking amazing. The tint really helps with the scorching Texas sun - and it makes the car look damned cool! I am very picky about my cars, so it is nice when you run into an auto services professional who treats your property with the same care and attention to detail that you do. I highly recommend Sunshades.
best quality and prices in town! – In 2006 I bought a Porsche that needed to have Window tint installed. Robert ensured me that his staff would take the best care of my car and DID!! The tint was much better than I could have expected and keeps the heat out of the car without being too dark. GREAT JOB three years ago fellas
and you keep getting better!
On 3.28.09 ( Saturday ) at 1:00pm I called Sunshades to enquire about an appointment for a new AUDI that I just picked up in San Antonio.. ( I was still in San Antonio btw ). Robert told me that he could possibly get it done the same day as long as I got to the shop by 2:00. I was not sure of how long it would take me to get back to town so I called Sunshades when I got to San Marcos I told him that I could be there by 2:30 knowing they closed at 3:00.. Robert said come on down!! We will be ready for you and get it done for you today. WOW!! I arrived close to 3:00 and all of the installers were there working on my car within 10 minutes.. They did NOT rush and even took the extra time to go over the tint options, costs and warranties. We all even debated together about what would look the best on the car. The guys were very chilled back with a professional feel.
My wife and I both agree that the customer service, cleanliness and quality of Sunshades far surpasses the BIG WINDOW tint chains locally.
THANKS AGAIN ROBERT!
AWESOME EXPERIENCE – I called SunShades about 3 weeks ago to try to get a remote start 2-way alarm. I decided to go to them because not only is there location convenient but they could get me right in and they matched the price I had found. They were very helpful. They showed me exactly what I was getting and called me if/when there was a problem. They even stayed late that day to get my truck finished. I would highly recommend them for any alarm or stereo equipment or installation. I was very pleased with this place!!!!
Fast and Clean – Really Good Place. They had no problem getting me in. The shop was clean and Robert was
a very nice guy who did exactly what I wanted on my tint. Never pushed anything at me and had no
problem letting me use my coupon. I will be going back for audio/video soon.Oh yeah these guys were
