What do you blow your nose with? Kleenex! Where do you take phone messages? On a post-it! My point is that the industry over time has changed our mind on what a tissue is. Most people call it a Kleenex, because that is the brand that is most commonly associated with it. This is the same as 3M with post-its and 3M with window tinting.
We are the only authorized 3M window tint dealer in the area. 3M offers a limited lifetime warranty on their product, and we are here to make sure that you love your new tint on your vehicle. We carry different tint shades to meet your needs. We can also tint as many windows as you need tinted! Always keep in mind though; having windows tinted can be against the law if you do not follow the regulations set by the state of Illinois. Remember you can always go darker, but keep in mind that you are at risk of being pulled over and getting a ticket.
The law in Illinois states:
“Motorists can have 35% Visual Light Transmission (VLT) on all motor vehicle windows, except the front windshield, as long as no other window in the vehicle is tinted darker than 35%.”
Having your windows tinted can also preserve the interior of your vehicle. The purpose of tint is to reduce the amount of light and heat that comes into the vehicle, so this will protect the interior of your vehicle from sun and weather damage.
So call today and set up an appointment to get your windows tinted, and you will be amazed how great your vehicle will look and how cool it will be for those warm summer months.
As our economy changed, the average consumer’s cycle for trading-in their vehicle also changed. Consumers are keeping their vehicles longer, and keeping them mechanically sound. But are they properly maintaining their vehicle’s appearance?
Even though this winter was mild, we still need to understand the effects of the changing seasons on our vehicles. It may seem like a long time ago when trucks where dumping tons of corrosive salt onto our roads to protect us as we drove. But the same element that was protecting us several months ago is quietly destroying our vehicles, not to mention all of the snow and slush that we dragged into our vehicles.
For most people, their vehicle is just a means of transportation. Others consider their vehicle to be a reflection of their personal image. By having your vehicle detailed, you can reduce the negative effects of salt inside and out, while bringing back your car’s like new appearance.
Exterior detailing involves several processes, which includes washing, claying, polishing, waxing, and sealing of your vehicle’s painted surfaces. Interior detailing involves cleaning all of the hard to reach areas, extracting dirt from the carpets, and protecting the seating surfaces.
Do you remember when you first purchased your new vehicle, and you would park at the far end of the parking lot to avoid people slamming their car doors into your new car? Do you look at that door ding every time you get in or out of your vehicle?
Paintless Dent Removal is a quick and affordable process that can remove those ugly dents, without a costly trip to the body shop. This process is performed by highly trained professionals who have many years of experience removing door dings, minor dents, small creases, and hail damage, without harming your vehicle’s paint.
There are many reasons to maintain the appearance of your vehicle: pride in ownership, personal or professional image, but the most important reason is resale value! Everyone knows that automotive dealers are going to perform an appraisal of your trade-in, and the condition of the interior and exterior factors into the determination of what they are willing to offer you. A dirty or dented vehicle can be worth hundreds or even thousands of dollars less than a vehicle of the same year, make, and model that has had its appearance properly maintained.
We can help you keep your car’s appearance in its best condition. For more information regarding AutoSmart’s Auto Detailing and vehicle appearance services please call us at 630-554-2285.
