Getting a rock chip in your windshield is always annoying. You know that the chip isn't hurting anything right now, but that little chip in your windshield can crack at any moment. The last thing you want is to have to get a full windshield replacement just because a little rock chip turned into a view-obscuring crack, but scheduling a rock chip repair can be annoying, too. If you want to simplify the process of getting a rock chip repaired, consider working with a mobile auto glass repair service. Here are three reasons to schedule a mobile service instead of visiting a glass repair shop.
Fit Glass Repairs Into Any Schedule
You shouldn't have to put your life on hold just to get your car's windshield repaired, and with mobile repair services, you won't ever have to. Auto glass repair professionals can come and fix your windshield wherever you park your car for a few hours, including your home or your workplace. Make sure to communicate clearly with the repair service when telling them where your car will be located. At home, they can make repairs if your car is on the street or in your driveway or garage (as long as you are home to open the garage for them). When you are at work, make sure to give them clear details about your car and its place in the parking lot.
Get Contactless Rock Chip Repairs
COVID-19 has made getting simple services more difficult, but mobile auto glass repair services are practically made for a global pandemic. Most companies will let you pay online or over the phone before your appointment. Technicians only need to access the outside of your vehicle, so you won't have to worry about sanitizing your car after they have fixed your windshield and you won't even need to come outside to open the car for them. Your technician will simply, show up, verify which vehicle you asked them to fix, and get to work. They will notify you of their service via phone, so you will know when they arrive, which car they are working on, and when they have finished, all without putting yourself or your technician at risk.
No Extra Fees For Mobile Service
With all of the benefits of mobile auto glass repairs, you may expect to pay a premium for the service. However, while customers do get a lot of benefits from mobile services, so do employees and business owners. Mobile services don't need to maintain storefronts, so their operating costs are far lower than those of other glass repair services. They pass these savings onto their customers by not charging travel fees to anyone within their service area. As long as you choose a local company, you should be able to get inexpensive services.
