Dangers of Using Mobile Auto Glass Windshield Repair Services

Is Mobile Windshield Installation Safe or Should I Bring My Car to a Shop?mobile windshield replacement tampa

The mobile windshield replacement ads you see all look inciting with words like “FREE Mobile Service, We Come To You, Super Fast,  Cheap Pricing.”  One company even offers FREE Steaks! Really?  I don’t think I’d want to make my decision based on a piece of low quality meat, do you?  At the end of the day, people like to have a mobile unit to replace their windshield glass because it is convenient.

But what they don’t know, that it comes with consequences. Most of mobile auto glass technicians work on commission, so the more windshields they repair or replace, the more money they make. Usually they service between 6 to 8 windshields a day and they have to cover Hillsborough County, Polk, Pinellas and Pasco Counties.

Is Mobile Auto Glass Repair really FREE?

Customers think mobile is free, but it’s not unless you have full coverage automobile insurance in the State of Florida.  Someone has to pay the cost to send a technician to your site.  So the price they give you includes this, but they tell you it’s free. The way that auto glass companies make money by offering mobile services is by hiring contractors to do their jobs (meaning they don’t use certified technicians).  The price to repair or replace your automobile’s glass is always cheaper if it’s done in the shop because they are not paying a technician’s gas and time while in route.

The Potential Problems Using Mobile Services:  

Every car has between one to five types of windshields depending on the options that match the year, make and model of the car. Most customers don’t know if they have a Rain sensor, Heated windshield, Heated wiper, Line departure, Night vision, Solar or Not … and more options. So if the mobile glass technician arrives and finds he has a wrong windshield because the customer gave him the wrong information the technician has to reschedule another appointment to bring the correct glass.

Mobile auto glass technicians may make short cuts when they install the glass meaning; they don’t take the wipers off, they don’t take the cowl off when they cut the glass and they may not cut the old adhesive properly. They don’t have time to clean and vacuum the debris, they only put one tube of adhesive instead of two tubes and they hold the windshield by themselves and install it.  That’s not an easy task, but they manage to do all that in 20 to 30 minutes and the customer has no idea what’s going on and no supervisor to watch the technician when he does the job. Their main goal is to finish the replacement in a short time so they can go to the next job and make more money.

Why Bringing Your Car Into a Shop is Better:

If you bring the car to the shop, the technician has protection from rain (so no rescheduling) and the auto glass shop has liability coverage in case something goes wrong.   A supervisor can oversee his work and make certain the job is done correctly. There are other technicians in the shop that  will help him when he needs to set the windshield the proper way, and if the customer gave the wrong information and options about the windshield, someone in the shop will quickly grab the correct glass so you don’t have to wait or reschedule.  Usually work is done in one hour at the shop.
