We hear this all the time. "Guy down the street can repair for $X, why are you so much?"
It’s not that Auto One costs so much. The guy on the corner is likely “cutting every corner” to under-sell his competition. There’s more to windshield replacement than glass and glue. When you see an unbelievable price, there are three things you should ask yourself.
- Where did the glass come from? Is this a new piece of glass or one recycled from a damaged vehicle? Does it have all the same options as your original?
- Does the installer have the proper urethane to adhere the glass to my car?
- If an unqualified installer puts the glass in, will the structural integrity be returned to your vehicle?
There’s a reason that the price is unbelievably low. Shop around. Get the best price, but don’t compromise your safety by using a non-certified installer. Follow these steps to make an informed decision.
