A few months ago, I realized that I really needed to update our windows and a few other glass fixtures around the house. I started searching for a great glass shop in the area, and I was able to find a place that I felt really good about. I worked with them to replace our mirrors, our glass shower enclosures, and our windows. When we were finished, our house looked and felt brand new on the inside and the outside. I was really impressed with how much of a difference those changes made. This blog is all about installing better glass in your home.
Having a windshield repaired can seem like a very inconvenient part of car ownership. You have to take the car to the automotive glass replacement center, drop off your car, and then wait for it or depend on other forms of transportation until your car is ready. Have you ever considered a mobile windshield repair service? The following are some things to keep in mind if you are on the fence about this service:
Severity of the Damage
In general, mobile windshield repair services can fix any windshield that has damage that is the size of a dollar bill or smaller. For major repairs and cracks, you will need to discuss whether or not they can fix it. Some mobile services will replace the entire glass anywhere you are parked. Others will only repair smaller damage. Always be very thorough with your description of the damage when you are making an appointment with the mobile repair service. You will also need to provide them with the make and model of your vehicle to ensure they have the windshield in stock if they do indeed provide full replacements.
Another question people have when it comes to windshield replacement and repair is whether or not the service will replace the inspection sticker. This will highly depend on which state you live in. Some mobile services, when allowed by law, will replace your old sticker to your new windshield. They will not take your car in for an inspection in order to get a new sticker. This is a common misconception about mobile windshield replacement services.
You may also be wondering whether or not you need to stay with the technician while he or she is repairing your windshield. The answer is no, you do not need to be present while they work. You will have to meet the technician initially to provide your insurance information and provide them with your keys. You will also need to make your payment arrangements in person. The technicians are very professional and very well vetted by their employers, so you can trust them with your vehicle while you are not there.
Using a mobile windshield service is a very convenient way to have your windshield repaired while you work, run errands, or even visit the zoo with your family. If you have insurance with comprehensive coverage, you can get your new windshield for little to no money, making it a very cost-effective option.Share
