    Signs You May Require the Services of a Custom Auto Glass Shop

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Chips, scratches, dings, cracks, and full-blown fractures alike demand the expertise of a professional car window replacement company. Whether you drive a hard-to-find classic model vehicle or one that requires custom parts, you can benefit greatly from enlisting the services of a top-notch auto glass company. Here are a few signs you should bring your car in to Glass on the Move right away.

    • You Drive a Classic or Vintage Vehicle: Whether you drive a 1955 Chevrolet or a 1970 Volkswagen, any type of classic or vintage vehicle demands special attention. Custom auto glass shops are capable of utilizing advanced cutting technology to create custom-fit glass in any desired color, shade, or frame. Whether you’re looking to replace a cracked or chipped windshield or simply looking to refurbish your old classic, a quality custom auto glass shop has the tools and expertise needed to help.
    • You Drive a Custom Car or Hot Rod: Finding the exact size and style auto glass needed for your custom car or hot rod is likely next to impossible. Custom auto glass shops will lay out for you a wide selection of hot rod windshield colors and shades as well as original custom car window patterns. Whether you’re looking to duplicate your previous auto glass or instead are looking to change up your design, a custom auto glass shop is a sure bet.
    • You Need Hard-to-Find Auto Glass: The make, model, year, body style, number of doors, and even tint preference play a role in determining what type of auto glass best fits your car. If you drive a 1960s Chevy pickup, for instance, odds are it will be difficult to find the exact auto glass to fit the year, make, and model. When you elect to bring your vehicle in to an expert custom auto glass shop, they will be able to use their technology to replicate the exact auto glass you need.

    Mobile-Only Glass Repair vs. Brick-and-Mortar Glass Shops

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Need to find an on-site auto glass replacement technician?  Before you call, know the differences between a mobile-only business and a brick and mortar business with mobile options. Mobile-only glass repair companies simply can’t offer the credibility, accountability, and skilled technicians a traditional brick-and-mortar glass shop can. Here are some of the benefits you will receive in getting your car window replacement at a brick and mortar company like Glass on the Move.

    • Credibility: In order to begin a brick-and-mortar business model, a business must first invest large sums of money into infrastructure as a means of establishing itself in the marketplace. For this reason alone, brick-and-mortar businesses are infinitely more credible than rival businesses that operate out of no set locations. Set business hours, an easy-to-find location, and a highly-trained staff outweigh any business that operates solely out of a truck and sources glass from a warehouse.
    • Accountability: Whereas mobile-only glass repair shops have the capability of being elusive, brick-and-mortar glass shops operate out of one set location each day. This means that if you need to speak to a manager about your glass repair, you will not have to chase them down. Accountability is what separates the traditional business model from suspect mobile operations.
    • Skill: Building a presentable physical location for customers to visit isn’t enough on its own. Highly-skilled, well-trained employees and a visible leader separate traditional brick-and-mortar glass shops from the competition. Whereas mobile glass repair operations may not always have the most skilled technicians addressing your auto glass cracks and chips, you will have the peace of mind in knowing that Glass on the Move does.

    In deciding between Glass on the Move and mobile-only glass repair companies, the choice is simple. Contact Glass on the Move today to see for yourself what working with a credible and accountable glass repair company is like. To find out more information, the number to call is (510) 338-4791.

    Different Problems that Can Develop as a Result of Unprofessional Windshield Installation

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Your windshield helps keep your car warm when it’s cold outside and cold when it’s hot outside. It protects your eyes from bugs, dirt, dust, insects, and other debris. Perhaps most importantly, your windshield keeps your roof from crushing you during a rollover accident. With all of these vital functions in mind, you should never leave your windshield installation to an amateur. Here are some of the problems you may encounter by letting anyone but a professional install your auto glass.

    • Poor Alignment: Whether you elect to take your windshield installation as a do-it-yourself project or an opportunity to hire the cheapest installer available, you run the risk of winding up with a poor windshield alignment. Often times, when you forego professional installation, you wind up with a rushed end product. A poorly aligned windshield is more susceptible to cracks, chips, and popping off altogether in the event of an accident.
    • Excessive Water and Air Leaks: Improperly applied adhesive can lead to excessive water and air leaks. This typically will come about as a result of a fatal short cut. Instead of removing sealant from your old windshield prior to installing the new one, many windshield installers elect to forego this critical step. The end result is a sealant that doesn’t work optimally and an abundance of leaks.
    • Reduced Passenger Protection: Windshields are designed in large part to support the roof of a car from caving in during a rollover accident. A poorly aligned windshield will fail to provide adequate protection should your car roll over in an accident. The end result can range anywhere from passenger ejection to the roof of the car collapsing on top of the passengers inside.

    If you need auto glass repair or replacement, protect your safety by enlisting the experts at Glass on the Move. Visit us in Oakland, or have one of our mobile repair representatives visit you in the Hayward and Berkeley areas to experience our award-winning services. To find out more information or to speak with a friendly member of our team, call us today at (510) 338-4791.
