3 Questions To Ask When Needing Auto Glass Replacement

by Rasmus Koskinen

Owning a vehicle means taking care of a lot of different components to keep it running properly. One of the things that you don't normally have to worry about is your windshield. However, your windshield can end up getting damaged just from driving down the road. A bird, rock or other object can end up destroying your windshield and leaving you having to replace it. If you are looking to replace your windshield, here are three questions you want to ask potential repair shops before making a final decision on who to go with.

Do you come to the vehicle's location?

With people constantly running from one place to another, it's difficult to find time to sit inside of a repair shop waiting for the windshield to be taken care of. If you are like so many others, you need someone who is going to come to you to get the job done. Whether it be your work, the grocery store or wherever else you might have to be that day, you want a repair facility that can meet your busy schedule and make sure you are back on the road quickly and easily, without having to sacrifice your day.

What type of warranty do you offer?

While you don't expect anything to go wrong with your new windshield, it can happen at any point in time. Depending on the age of your vehicle and its overall condition, it might not be easy to get the new windshield to adhere to your vehicle properly. Oftentimes, rust gets in the way and can prevent the windshield from forming a tight seal. When that happens, rain water can end up leaking inside of your vehicle and causing all sorts of damage to the headliner. You need to know that the repair facility is going to take care of your vehicle for you and get it fixed up right.

Will you work with me on deductibles?

Oftentimes, many glass repair companies are willing to waive a portion of your glass deductible to help you out. Depending on what your deductible is, you might be able to get all of it waived. Some want you to bring in a coupon from their website, while others will just do it if you bring it up. Make sure to ask and save some money in your pocket along the way.

By asking the three questions above, you can make sure you get your windshield replaced and your needs met. For more information, contact a company that specializes in auto glass replacement in your area.
