Can they still help me if I don’t have insurance?
It is important that you make sure that the company you are interested in using can still help you even if you don’t have insurance. Repairs and replacements can be expensive, so you may want to find out if the company offers services like Afterpay so that you can spread the repayments out over a number of weeks.
How experienced are they? Do they offer good service?
A good way to check up on a company’s level of experience and service is to check out their google reviews. A company with 4+ stars in its reviews is probably going to offer a better service than those with only 1 or 2 stars. Remember to look at the number of reviews a business has too, as this can give an overall view of how popular they are. Please also leave a review on google if you have a great experience, these reviews really help both customers when choosing companies and the businesses to be recognised for their hard work.
Do they hold parts in stock, or will they need to be ordered?
It’s always easier if a window specialist can repair or replace your windows as soon as possible. Check with the company if they hold parts, if they don’t, ask how long it will take to get them.
Do they offer any other related services?
If your windscreen is damaged and is being repaired or replaced, you may realise it’s also time for new wiper blades. To save time having to visit a different business, check out and see if you can find a company that can replace and fit these things for you. Fast Autoglass offers wiper blade replacements, battery replacements and can also calibrate windscreen cameras for your convenience.
Do they offer a mobile service?
If you have a busy life, it may be easier for a window repair specialist to visit you at home or at work. Check to see if the company you are interested in offers this service. If you are planning to take your vehicle into the workshop, check to see if you can borrow a courtesy car so you can keep your day moving whilst the repair or replacement takes place.
By using the questions above, you should be able work out which businesses can offer you the service you need. Remember to visit websites and look in the FAQ section when gathering your information. Or give a business a call and they can answer all your questions over the phone.
