How to Choose a Windshield Replacement Service

It may have happened to you: you’re driving along the freeway and–bam! A rock flies up from a semi-truck and hits your car’s windshield, ruining your view along with our outlook for the day! Whether the damage is just a chip or if your glass now sports a major league crack, it’s important to get help from a car window company immediately before the problem gets worse. Here are some tips for choosing a good one.

Convenient mobile service: The last thing you need in your life is another headache right now. And frankly, having to drop your car off somewhere and wait for the repair to be done is the ultimate inconvenience. In some cases, driving a car is hazardous after suffering glass damage. Most good car window services will offer free mobile auto glass repair service anywhere in their service area. They will come to your work, your home, or wherever you are if the situation is an emergency.

Quality workmanship: We’ve all seen those rock chip repair stations set up in parking lots and along road sides. Unfortunately, with those kinds of kiosks there’s no way of really knowing what you’re getting. When you select a mobile windshield chip repair service with a positive history in the community, they have long-term accountability and a vested interest in making sure the job is done right. With fly-by-night set-ups, you just never know.

Excellent materials: Even among established mobile auto glass service shops, there are real differences in the types of glass used for mobile windshield replacement. When choosing your provider, you need to ask about the specifications of the glass they use; whether it is appropriate according to original equipment manufacturers specifications or if they use only all-new, high quality glass.

Easy to work with: Most people want to go through their insurance companies when it comes to paying for mobile auto glass replacement services. A good car window company will help make the insurance claims process extremely simple by walking you through it themselves. Ask them up front about their claims policies: you just don’t need any more hassles than you already have.
