Top 3 Reasons to Choose In-Shop Windshield Replacement

We recently discussed how convenient mobile windshield repair and mobile windshield replacement can be. So why would anyone with a chipped or cracked windshield forgo the convenience of mobile windshield replacement, and instead choose to drop off their vehicle to an auto glass shop?? Read below for the top 3 reasons you may decide in-shop windshield repair or replacement is the better option:

1. Comprehensiveness

Some windshield damage can be pretty extensive. Although even small chips and cracks on your windshield from rocks/debris should be repaired, some windshield damage may be sustained in a more significant way, for example, in a motor vehicle accident or collision. If the windshield damage is widespread, an in-shop windshield replacement may be a better option. It allows the auto glass technicians to have the best tools and equipment at their disposal to ensure the windshield repair or replacement is completed to the highest standards. Ensuring your windshield replacement is done right the first time AND provides the highest level of safety for you and your loved ones while driving is of utmost importance to us at Auto Glass 2020.

2. Affordability

Most auto glass shops charge extra for their mobile windshield repair and replacement services. At Auto Glass 2020, we believe that our family of clients should not be charged extra for this convenience. So, whether you choose mobile windshield repair or in-shop windshield repair, the cost will be the same!

It is important to note however, that your car insurance may cover windshield repair and windshield replacement in-shop only. Because most auto glass repair shops charge extra for mobile windshield replacement, many insurances choose not to cover mobile auto glass services. When deciding between mobile windshield repair vs in-shop windshield replacement, make sure to take a peek at your auto insurance policy to understand what they will and will not cover!

3. Weather

We have two seasons in Arizona: (1) hot!! and (2) less hot!! We are in the middle of monsoon season, so as most of you know, our days and nights are currently filled with extremely HOT temperatures, random haboobs (aka dust storms for any out-of-towners ), and crazy wind, rain, and hail storms. If the temperature is too high or the weather is too wet, some of the adhesives used during the windshield repair and windshield replacement process in Arizona summers, may not be able to sufficiently hold the auto glass in place and allow for it to set correctly. Although there are some alternative options that can sometimes be used to mitigate this, it is not always possible. The best way to figure out which environment (mobile or in-shop) is best for your specific windshield repair or windshield replacement, call Auto Glass 2020 at (480) 283-7751 and we can walk you through this.
