Glass: The Difference Is Clear

Mobile Windshield Repair Is Fast And Convenient For Most People

A chip in your windshield may not seem like a big enough deal for you to get it fixed. Part of the reason you may be avoiding getting a rock chip fixed is that you don't have a lot of time to take it in. The only problem with avoiding taking your vehicle in for a repair is that the chip you have may quickly become a huge crack that will require a replacement. Most windshield companies now offer mobile windshield repair to make things easier on people. There are a few great things about using this mobile service.

Schedule a Time and Place That Works for You

Mobile windshield repair is all about being convenient for the customer. That means you can schedule a repair during your lunch hour at work or at your home in the evening. In fact, you don't even have to be present for the repair. This makes it much easier for you to get the repair without having to plan to spend your time waiting. There may be some limitations on how far out of a city's limits a windshield repair company might venture, but most locations in town will work for a repair.

Repairs Can Be Done Fast

Most windshields can be completely replaced in about an hour or less. When it comes to a rock chip or a crack that is smaller than a dollar bill, the repairs take a lot less time. Unless you are having several rock chips repaired, you can count on the service on being much less than an hour. Repairs involve injecting a resin into the glass that fills and is smoothed over by the technician. Once it's done, the crack will not even be noticeable to you or anyone in your vehicle. If you have too many cracks, even if they are technically repairable, it may be recommended that you get a replacement.

Cost is Minimal

A new windshield replacement can be hundreds of dollars. A windshield repair is a fraction of the cost, even out of pocket. The good news is, mobile windshield repair is not any more expensive than going into the shop for the repair. Also, your insurance plan may offer some coverage for repair maintenance on your windshield. That could mean that you pay absolutely nothing for the repair. Even if you are paying out of your own pocket, it's one of the most affordable maintenance repairs you will ever have.

Windshield repairs help keep your windshield strong, and your ability to see the road much better. Windshield damage can be a safety issue for drivers, so it is not recommended to let your cracks and chips get out of control.
