In most states it is illegal to drive with a cracked or broken windshield so what are you going to do. In this case, you need to find shop that offers mobile windshield replacement. Not all shops offer this service, which is where a technician comes to your place of business or residence and replaces the windshield. In addition to replacing a broken or cracked windshield, the technician can try to fix the crack with resin and smoothed out until you can no longer see the damage.
With a cracked windshield, there is a possibility of having a serious accident if the glass collapses before you can get it fixed. In many instances, your car insurance will cover mobile windshield replacement or repair without paying a deductible. Take the time when you get to your office, call a repair shop, and make an appointment to come to your place of business to take care of the problem.
To make sure that your insurance company will pay for this service you should call them before making an appointment to have your windshield fixed. It is very easy to submit a claim for this service. Once you have found out if the service is covered or not, let the insurance company know that you have windshield damage. There are usually no forms to fill out. Once this is done, you call and schedule an appointment to have this taken care of.
When you call the repair shop they will ask for the model and make of your car so they will bring the correct windshield to your place of business or residence to fix the problem. Once the technician arrives at your place of business, they will let you know they are there. After looking at the windshield, the first thing that the technician does is remove the outer lining around the windshield. Then special suction cups are attached to the windshield to lift it up and remove it. The broken windshield is put into the repair truck and a new one is put back in the same way it was removed. Once the windshield is replaced and set in place, your car is ready to drive. The process will usually take no more than fifteen to thirty minutes to complete.
