You need a new windshield. Right? It happens. There's been weird weather all over the country, maybe you had a hail stone or a tree branch go through your window. Or maybe that crack is just growing ever longer and you're starting to worry. And you know that you could either drive to the windshield repair place, or have someone come to you. In general it's probably a little more expensive to have someone come to you to fix your windshield, so why would you?

Unsafe Driving

Driving with a damaged windshield can be unsafe. It can limit your visibility. Now, if it's a crack you've had for a while, you may not be aware of how much it's effecting your visibility- and you may be willing to risk it. Because you've been fine so far. Driving in general is a risk assessment, so that one's up to you, but this is just one of the reasons why people choose mobile windshield repair.


If you had a rock bounce off your windshield on the way to work, then you might be able to call and have your windshield repaired or replaced by lunch time. (Depending on how busy the repair place is, naturally.) This is probably a strong contender for number one reason- it can just be handled. You may have to walk outside to hand the guy your keys. Big deal, right?


Okay, it'd be silly to pretend that this isn't on the list. It probably will be for a while. Having the repair guy come to you means you have to expose yourself less. In all honesty, the repair guy has to expose himself less, as well. It would be difficult, in this day and age, to have somehow missed the news about Covid-19. Windshield repair places know about it, and many have several ways of handling this transaction as safely and with as little face to face time as possible. It'd be difficult to cover everything in this short article, but most windshield repair places have their safety protocols outlined on their website, as well as being perfectly happy to explain it to you when you make the appointment. Still, mobile windshield replacement can be faster and less prone to exposure.

The cost of having your windshield replace can vary, though you should probably expect to pay upwards of $250. If you're simply having it repaired, well, that will probably be considerably cheaper. (And may put off having to have it replaced.)
