8 Tips For Choosing The Best Windshield Replacement Company

Your vehicle does more than get you from point A to point B. It keeps you safe on the road. Your windshield plays an important role in the safety of your vehicle. If you are having your windshield replaced, choosing a qualified, reputable company should be a top priority to ensure quality work and the safety of your vehicle. Here are some things to consider as you choose your windshield replacement company.

1. The Auto Glass Safety Council

Look for a company that is certified by The Auto Glass Safety Council (formerly the AGRSS® Council). This not-for-profit organization is dedicated to the safe replacement of auto glass.

2. Experience

Check how long the auto glass company has been in business. Select a company with a long, proven track record of quality work.

3. Professionalism

Take some time to chat with the staff by email or phone call. Are they friendly? Do they take the time to thoroughly address concerns and answer your questions? It is always better to do business with a company that values professionalism.

4. See What Their Customers Say

See what others say about the company's services by reading online reviews, looking through comments on social media, Yelp, and other platforms.

5. Price

A quality windshield replacement company will have prices that are fair and competitive. Be wary of companies offering below-average prices. You get what you pay for.

6. No Third-Party Parts

Your windshield replacement company should be fully approved and recommended by your insurance company and vehicle manufacturer. Do not entrust your windshield replacement to a company that uses third-party parts.

7. Experienced With Insurance Claims

A good windshield replacement company will work with insurance companies to file your claim under the comprehensive part of your policy. They will make the claims process easy for you and, in most cases, can replace your windshield without affecting your insurance rates.

8. ADAS Recalibration

Newer vehicles come equipped with ADAS features that must be recalibrated with windshield replacement. The technicians replacing your windshield should be trained in all aspects of the calibration process, from software and radar to precision laser alignment, and more, so that your vehicle safety features meet factory standards.
