Same Day Auto Glass Services

For anyone that’s had a cracked windshield, the urgency to get it fixed properly is paramount. Fortunately, many auto glass shops in the US offer same day services designed to get your car roadworthy within a day, so you can get back on the road safely and with minimal disruption to your daily routine.

Need a same day auto glass service?

The answer is probably straightforward: your windshield is cracked or chipped and you don’t feel safe driving it around town, but you simply can’t wait to have it fixed since you need your car for the commute to work, university, taking the kids to sports practice, etc.

Why wait days or weeks for a windshield repair when you need it to get around town today? That’s why many auto glass shops and mobile auto glass technicians offer same-day and next-day services to help customers in need of speedy, reliable windshield repairs.

Not all shops offer same-day service, however, so it’s worth asking around and making a few phone calls to your local auto glass shop to see if they can accommodate you. Be aware that you may have to pay a premium for speedy service, so do take a little time to compare prices and to get quotes.

Things to look for

“Haste makes waste,” or so it’s said. Just because you’ve found an auto glass shop or mobile service that can provide you with same-day service, doesn’t mean you should spend your hard-earned dollars right away. The windshield is a critical structural element of your car that must provide resistance against the elements and appropriate visibility on the road, and since windshield repairs are a specialized trade it’s worth looking for a technician that knows what he’s doing.

Consider the following traits when looking for an auto glass shop:

  • Same day service: naturally, you’ll want to ensure that the shop offers same day service clearly on their profile or website. If you need it today, don’t settle for work that’ll be put off until tomorrow.
  • Price: chips and cracks can usually be repaired “for free” (covered under your insurance policy, of course), but replacements may cost you out of pocket depending on your insurance policy and in which state you reside.
  • Location: if you’re going to drop off your car at the shop, have you made any arrangements for how you’ll pick it up? If the job takes all day and you’ve got errands to run, you need to be sure that you can take public transit or catch a ride from a friend or family member to go pick it up after the job’s done. Ideally, choose a shop that’s close to home.
  • Mobile service vs. car drop-off: this is a big one. If your windshield is seriously damaged, you simply cannot take it into the shop. In such cases, you’ll need to be sure that the auto glass shop offers a remote service, i.e. they’ll come to your home and fix it there on the spot. If your windshield isn’t seriously damaged, it may be fine to drop it off yourself, but of course the first option is much more convenient for most drivers.

How to find reputable auto glass shops near you

In our digital age, the fastest and most convenient option for most of us is simply to use a search engine to look for “same day windshield repairs near me” and to filter through the results, one by one. While it’s often easy to find big-name national brands at the top of the search results, there’s no guarantee that you’re getting the best quality service at the best prices – you’re just getting results from big auto glass repair shops that do the best digital marketing.

As with many tradespeople such as plumbers, electricians, and auto glass technicians, starting out with the big corporate brands is a great way to get some experience under their belt and to build their resume. After a few years and with more experience and industry know-how, many decide to become sole proprietors and offer their expertise at competitive prices.

The downside is that although many are experts in their craft, they aren’t digital marketing geniuses and their websites often lack the traction to get the business they deserve. Websites such as myWindshield seek to change all that by boosting visibility and putting customers in touch with reputable, experienced auto glass shops near them within their county or state.

Are you driving around with a cracked windshield? Don’t put yourself and others at risk and have your windshield fixed as soon as possible. Find a reputable auto glass technician near you today using myWindshield and get back on the road today.
