Getting Your Auto Glass Repaired

When a pop bottle flew off of a freeway overpass and smashed into my car window, I knew that I had a problem. I was already late to work, and I had no idea how I was going to have time to get the damage repaired. Fortunately, a friend of mine told me about a place that offered mobile windshield repair. They came out the same day, worked on my car, and replaced the window--all while I sat at my desk and helped clients. It was really amazing to have their help, and I couldn't have done it without them. This blog is all about mobile windshield repair.
