Welcome to the first blog post on http://dynamorepair.ca/ . My name is Zach and I am the Founder at Dynamo Windshield Repair. I live and operate my windshield repair business in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Here are 8 reasons why I love the windshield repair business.
This business gives you the freedom to do whatever you would like. If you want to work every day of the week, 12 hours a day; or if you want to work 3 times a week, 4 hours a day. The choice is yours! Owning a business will change the way you view your freedom. Obviously, as a business owner, you get 100% of what you put into it. Don’t expect everyone to come to you that easily. At first, you will have to go out there and get it yourself. If you do a great job, word of mouth will spread. Trust me.
One of the best things about the windshield chip repair business is that the end customer actually wants and needs your business. 9 times out of 10, the customer is actually happy with their purchase. There is usually little selling involved (different story when it comes to selling a FREE service but we can save that topic for another day). Once the repair is complete, the customer is typically fully of joy that you just repaired their windshield and saved them the time and money that a windshield replacement would have cost them. How cool!
- Time Management
In my opinion, one of the best things about windshield repair, is the time it takes to start and complete the repair. In most cases, the rock chip repair is completed in under 60 minutes, with most small chips being repaired in less than 30 minutes. This adds a great deal of efficency to your time management skills. There is no need to allocate hours of work for one client. Once you are done helping your first customer, you can be on to the next one in no time. You can even get multiple repairs on multiple vehicles at the same time, all completed in the same time frames. Talk about doubling your income!
- Profit Margins
I’m not going to go into too much detail here but the actual cost of goods for each repair is typically less than $10.00 CAD. Depending on the amount you charge per chip repair, whether you’re a mobile service or a flashy tent in a parking lot, the returns are anywhere from good to great to amazing. Not too shabby!
- Saves Customers Money
If you didn’t know, now you do. The windshield repair industry (windshield chip repairs) saves customers and insurances companies millions of dollars annually in replacement costs. If most chips are not repaired, they eventually will crack out, which then leads to the windshield needing replacement. This is a lot more expensive than a rock chip repair, especially with the new technology being developed into newer windshields. Over the recent years, windshields are now slowly starting to be recycled, but there are still millions and millions of windshields sitting in landfills, polluting Mother Earth.
- Little or No Risk Involved
I’m not talking from a business owners perspective, but from the customer’s point of view. If your windshield chip repair fails for some unlikely and rare reason, simply return or refund the cost of the repair to the customer. There’s not many businesses out there that a customer has little or no risk involved with their purchase. Keep that in mind!
- Home-Based Business
Another awesome thing about the windshield repair business is you can start and run this business out of your home with little or no overhead. With a professional looking website, well-designed flyers, colourful business cards, and a few online advertisements and social media accounts; there’s no reason to have an expensive shop lease, a fleet of trucks and large monthly overhead expenses. Keep it lean and mean, and you’ll get more green!
- Professional Income
To the untrained eye, most people assume that windshield chip repair is a low-paying industry. It’s a niche business that has been around for decades. Don’t get me wrong, there’s not much money in working for someone else who own’s the business. On the contrary, if you own and operate a windshield repair business as a professional service, I guarantee that you will make more money than most of your friends working a 9-5. Take the risk, adjust your attitude to reflect your new approach, and you will soon be on your way to making a great professional income. Until Elon Musk finds a way to prevent rocks and debris from hitting vehicle windshields, we will always have a windshield chip or two to repair.
