Auto glass damage can put a damper on all sorts of plans. A full windshield replacement can be an expensive and time consuming process for any driver. The good news is that windshield repair is often available and easier than windshield replacement. Mobile windshield repair services can perform complete windshield repairs on site.

Drivers dealing with windshields that have suffered major damage, mobile windshield replacement and auto glass replacement services are also available. Mobile glass repair and replacement services like ours can save drivers countless hours and tens to hundreds of dollars compared to dealing with an auto body shop or mechanic service. Most auto glass specialists, like mobile glass repair specialists, offer deep discounts on glass replacement, repair and other glass services.

Auto glass specialists buy auto glass in bulk, allowing them to perform replacement services for far lower prices than many of the alternatives on the market. Because auto glass specialists focus on auto glass repairs as our primary business, we can also stock all of the tools, supplies and necessities for auto glass repair. This means that our costs are far lower than any auto repair business that performs a wide range of services. We pass these savings directly onto our customers in the form of low cost auto glass repair and replacement services that drastically undercut the competition.

We charge less for auto glass repair and replacement services than competitors, and we can perform all of this work on site. Drivers can save gas and time by calling for mobile glass repair. More importantly, drivers don’t have to go through the hassle of getting a tow truck driver. This added expense is usually required when the damage to a windshield is severe, and will require a full windshield replacement. Mobile glass repair cuts the tow truck driver out of the loop, offering drivers valuable savings.

Mobile windshield repair is often dramatically cheaper than taking the vehicle into an auto body shop or auto mechanics. A combination of wholesale buying power, specialty equipment and ease of use makes us cheaper than these types of competitors on almost all points. If you need a windshield replacement call us at 1-800-388-0104 and we’ll offer you the best rate possible.

Auto glass repair continues to improve and refine the basic concept of windshield repair. More often than not, these improvements are extremely easy to overlook by a driver on site. It takes knowing a little bit about windshield repair technology, and how it works, to appreciate how much better modern windshield repair is than in days past. We’ve found that drivers who know how difficult and intensive auto windshield repair has been in the past, they tend to enjoy our services a whole lot more in the present.

The earliest auto windshields couldn’t be repaired, and replacing them wasn’t exactly easy. They used large sheets of single plate glass that you couldn’t get in a rural area. Many drivers had to get the glass from the vehicle manufacturer, making it nearly impossible for a windshield replacement to be done quickly.

Plate glass was easy to break and shatter in at the driver, making driving a terrifying experience for anyone with glass damage on the road. A new design grew out of the dangers associated with a single sheet of glass. Two layers of glass, laminated together, added durability to windshield design. While the glass could break just as easily, it tended to stay in place until a replacement was available. This was a huge improvement.

It didn’t take long for motorists to develop a new way to repair windshields that didn’t shatter in the way of the old plate glass designs. It became common to repair the windshield that suffered minor damage, like a chip, gouge or small crack. A clear resin solution is added to the gouge, and then several methods remove impurities and air bubbles, theoretically leaving behind no trace of the auto glass damage.

Filling chips in a windshield has remained the primary way to deal with minor windshield damage for years now, but new technologies continue to improve the process. Vacuum sealing, newer resins and fast setting polymers can make windshield repair look better than it ever has. These same improvements have make windshield repair easier to perform on the roadside, and cheaper for customers overall.

Auto glass has come just as far as the automobile itself, in terms of design and technology. New windshields are increasingly more sturdy and safe than earlier models. New technologies for repairing windshield glass continue to grow and improve, giving drivers affordable options for windshield repair, on and off the road.

Why We Hate Auto Glass Services That Overcharge.

Posted by Joshua on Friday Jun 28, 2013 Under Auto Glass, Auto Glass Repair

At Auto Glass Now we know hate is an awfully strong word. The thing is we really do feel it’s the appropriate one for businesses that overcharge for auto glass repair and replacement services. We feel this strongly because, frankly, overcharging for auto glass repair and windshield replacement gives everyone a bad impression of the industry.

Auto glass is relatively cheap when purchased in bulk and an auto glass specialist can perform the repairs for a reasonable rate. When other businesses overcharge, they make drivers dread auto glass damage. We want out customers to look forward to our low rates and excellent service.

Auto glass is expensive when bought in wholesale. Purchasing auto glass to keep on hand for repairs seems obvious. Many auto repair shops don’t have the space or ability to stock glass in wholesale. This can lead to enormous price increases between the wholesale price and what the customer pays. When coupled with ordering delays, it can make the glass repair experience downright offensive to many drivers.

Auto glass is almost always priced with a high mark up when coming from anywhere but an auto glass specialist. Multifaceted repair services can afford to charge a premium because they tend to have regular customers. While there is nothing wrong with wanting to provide across the board auto repair service, we have a big problem when the auto glass is marked up so high as to appear prohibitive.

We hate it when the auto repair industry makes auto glass repairs seem prohibitive or problematic. Auto glass repairs should be done quickly, effectively and cheaply. That’s why we offer the lowest rates possible in every single one of our locations. Auto glass now is proud to offer fair rates, excellent service and great values at all four of our locations.

Summer is officially in full effect. As we’ve discussed before, the summer months tend to mean more auto glass damage across the board for drivers. Summer also means that summer storms are usually sitting on the horizon. Recent years have had a major increase in freak storms and severe weather that runs well into the summer months. Heavy storms can cause minor auto glass damage to turn into major auto glass damage. Even if a driver isn’t actively driving in a storm, hail, flying debris and intense winds can cause chips and scratches to turn into cracks and shatters.

Storm weather puts a severe strain on the auto glass of any vehicle. Intense barometric and wind related pressures buffet the glass, pushing it in every direction. The natural curvature of the glass provides some aerodynamic relief, but it can also be the cause of enormous stresses. When a windshield already has cracks, chips or damage these increased pressures can cause existing damage to deteriorate rapidly.

In storm seasons, we reccomend drivers ensure that their auto glass is in proper working order before they are faced with a weather emergency. While on the road in a storm situation drivers are at much greater risk that an impact will shatter an already damaged windshield. Simple auto glass repairs or auto windshield replacements can save drivers from all manner of storm related dangers.

Drivers should have auto glass issues taken care of as soon as possible in pretty much any situation. During storm season, they really need to have glass issues taken care of quickly. We’re on call all summer to help drivers with auto glass repair before storms make it worse than it has to be.

It’s pretty common for drivers to pack a small emergency kit in case of emergencies. Most cars come equipped with basic emergency tools, like a jack and spare tire. Regular drivers often pack at least a pair of jumper cables and a few other odds and ends in the case of vehicle emergencies, but they rarely pack the number of a mobile glass repair specialist. All of these are sensible answers to relatively small problems. Unlike most minor damage, minor auto glass damage can keep a vehicle off the road. Drivers should keep the number for an auto glass repair service somewhere in the vehicle, just in case an auto glass emergency arises.

A quality glass repair specialist can usually take care of any auto glass repair or replacement work that a driver may need. More importantly, most auto glass specialists perform mobile auto glass repair and replacement services on the roadside or almost any location. Drivers, especially drivers who spend significant time on major highways, are advised to keep appraised of the best local auto glass specialists and keep a number handy in case of emergencies. Roadside windshield damage is particularly frustrating because the vehicle runs. Even thought the vehicle runs, windshield damage can obstruct vision or allow distracting outside elements into the passenger compartment of the car. Getting windshield damage taken care of quickly and easily is the ideal solution for most drivers.

The best way to make sure mobile glass repair is available is to keep the number for an auto glass repair specialist in their vehicle. Luckily, it’s both easy to find these numbers, and there are several simple options to keep them handy. Smartphones can give drivers the information on the road, saving on writing an actual list of numbers. For drivers headed through areas without reception, finding an auto glass repair specialist online is fairly easy. Drivers who want to stay prepared for every situation should make sure to keep the local auto glass specialists number on hand one way or another.

Five Common Causes of Auto Glass Damage.

Posted by Joshua on Friday May 24, 2013 Under Auto Glass, Auto Glass Repair

Auto glass damage comes in all shapes and sizes and can be caused by a huge range of factors. We’ve taken some time to compose a list of the primary reasons drivers come to us with auto glass damage. This is by no means a complete list of how auto glass damage is caused, but it can help drivers when they are considering how to save on auto glass repair bills.

5. Vandalism and mayhem.

Sometimes there isn’t much a driver can do to avoid the glass damage. Vandals and children sometimes can’t help themselves when it comes to an unprotected car. Windows are sometimes keyed and cracked in sitting vehicles. Even worse than minor vandalism, windows are often shattered completely in a vehicle breaking in situation.

4. Distraction based accidents

This type of accident is far more common than you may think. Drivers accidentally damage their own glass when they aren’t paying attention. This can be as simple as a ring scraping on a windshield or as damaging as accidentally throwing something throw glass. More than a few drivers have backed into low hanging tree branches or awnings on their own homes because they are talking to passengers while doing a routine backwards exit from a driveway.

3. Roadside Debris

Roadside debris brings in more than a few of our customers. Drivers never know hen something is going to pop up from the road. Many vehicles drop large debris on the roadside with the drivers unaware or unconcerned. Rocks, gravel and all manner of debris can be shot into auto glass by nearby tires. It is fairly common that the auto damage caused by roadside debris is sudden and completely unexpected.

2. Vehicular Accidents

It’s probably not a big surprise that vehicle on vehicle accidents cause a quite a bit of the of auto glass damage that we see on a regular basis. Vehicle accidents regularly mean auto glass impacts and immense windshield and window strain. Luckily for drivers everywhere, auto glass damage is getting to be one of the cheapest fixes in the wake of a vehicle on vehicle accident.

1. Weather

Inclement weather causes a huge range of auto glass damage in the United States and not just in the Midwestern States. Storms of all manner cause glass damage often damage that has to be completely replaced and not repaired. Hail, icy rain and heavy wind can all lead to major auto glass damage for all kinds of vehicles.

These are just a few of the thousands of reasons drivers come to us for our professional discount auto glass repair and replacement services. This list is just an account of the big five reasons we often hear at our auto glass repair shop. We hope it can help drivers prepare for auto glass damage ahead of time and prevent it wherever possible.

Spring and summer are auto glass repair season for thousands of drivers around the united states. Weather and roadside debris can be rough in the winter and fall and do often lead to a wide range of auto damage, but summer tends to see even more auto glass repair and replacement work. More drivers take to the roads in the spring and summer, and more recreational vehicles have glass problems that require a mobile auto glass repair specialist. Drivers that have put off auto glass repair and replacement because they haven’t been using the vehicle in the fall or winter tend to have repairs taken care of in early spring and summer.

Drivers take to the road in droves in the spring and summer months. Vacations, camping trips and, day trips are all popular reasons to drive take road trips, sometimes extended one. That kind of action on the roads means auto glass damage is a regular occurrence in the spring and summer. Drivers are advised to keep appraised of the local auto glass repair centers in case of an accident.

Many drivers need a reputable auto glass company early in the warmer seasons, and for many drivers this means mobile auto glass repair providers are the best option. Drivers can often find a quality mobile auto glass provider even if they haven’t prepared ahead of time. Looking for local auto glass specialists with an online instant quote is a great way to find an auto glass repair specialist in a pinch.

Summer also means it’s time to repair and replace glass on regular and recreational vehicles. RV’s, campers, ATV’s, boats and other vehicles all have glass damage. Most of the damage occurs in the spring and summer and is best handled at the time of the incident, but it doesn’t always shake out that way. Mobile auto glass solutions are always a great idea for vehicles that can’t make it into a standard repair shop.

Mobile auto glass repair has more than a few benefits. A typical mobile auto glass technician can repair chips cracks and dings in a wide range of laminated glass surfaces. In many cases, this includes glass damage around the home. When calling for mobile auto glass repairs, it is always a good idea to mention any other glass replacement or repair or replacement you may need. Even if the auto glass specialist doesn’t have the repair materials you need, they can probably point you in the right direction. Many auto glass specialists can perform additional services on site as well, including window motor repair, wiper replacement and, in some cases, window tinting.

Make sure to ask your auto glass repair technician or service what all types of service they provide, as they may be able to save you time and money, as well as fixing or replacing your broken auto glass. Many auto glass repair services tend to stock a wide range of glass and may be able to provide new glass table tops, windows or other basic glass work for the home. Small chips, cracks and dents in home glass can also be repaired by an expert auto glass service technician with the proper tools.

Beyond actual glass repair, mobile auto glass specialists can often repair auto glass components like motors, window assemblies and cracked or broken mirror components. Even if an auto glass specialist can’t perform home glass repair, they likely can point customers in the right direction to get the glass repairs they need. Auto glass specialists can almost always perform any and all auto glass repairs or replacements on site. Usually on site work is even cheaper than going to a non-specialist shop to have auto glass work done in the first place.
