If you are in the Lakeland, Florida, area, then you have undoubtedly heard of Tunes-N-Tint. Our mobile enhancement business has been serving Central Florida for years. We thought it would be interesting to give our clients some insight into the history of the company and outline some of the services we offer.
Tunes-N-Tint started as a mobile installation company in Tampa in 2000. After much initial success, we decided in 2001 that it was time to open a retail facility to provide our clients and staff with a way to experience our products and services before purchasing. We grew quickly and had to find a second location for increased storage.
The next step was to open a second location in Lakeland in 2007. The Lakeland store also grew quickly, resulting in opening a third location in central Lakeland in 2009, and then a South Lakeland location in 2011.
In 2012, we made a significant change. We spun off the Tampa location into a separate company, changed our name to Tunes-N-Tint and consolidated the Lakeland locations into our single state-of-the-art store at 4980 US Highway 98N.
With ample parking, well-equipped installation bays and a showroom that features modern interactive displays, our current location is well-known as one of the top automotive accessory and restyling centers in the area.
Staff Training and Certification
A business is nothing without its staff. We have employed more than 100 technicians over the years and they have all been certified by the Mobile Electronics Certified Professional (MECP) program – the only nationally recognized program of its kind in our industry. Currently, all of our technicians are both MECP-certified and have their Automotive Service Excellence (ASE ) A6 Electrical and Electronic Systems accreditation. Almost all of our team members, including management and sales staff, share this same training.
Over the years, we have been part of the MERA, ICE, ME, CEA (now CTA), IWFA and MESA professional organizations. We are active in various industry groups and regularly collaborate with other successful retailers to expand our knowledge and service offerings.

Investment in Facility Equipment
To be able to work efficiently, we have invested a great deal of money in equipment for our store. We have an in-house CNC-controlled laser cutter and a 3D printer and scanning system. Our woodworking area is equipped with a large table saw, multiple router stations, a wide variety of router templates and a complete dust collection system.
Since we began tinting in 2001, we have used computerized cutting to ensure each piece of window film fits your vehicle perfectly. We were one of the first companies in Florida to use computerized cutting. We also have an interactive display that demonstrates the thermal properties of the different films we offer.
Our Brand Partners
While installation and fabrication equipment and skills are paramount to providing our clients with exceptional upgrade solutions, our product partners are equally important. We have chosen brands for their balance of performance, value and reliability. Some of our key partners are Rockford Fosgate, JL Audio, Kenwood, Kicker, Pioneer, Viper, 3M and Rhino Linings.
Industry and Peer Recognition
We have been chosen as one of the Top 50 retailers by Mobile Electronics magazine for 10 years. We have made the Top 12 many times, several of our team members have been on the Top 50 and Top 12 lists for installers, and member of our team was voted as Rookie of the Year by Mobile Electronics magazine in 2016. We also won the coveted Best Store Presentation award in 2015.
