3 Reasons Why Fleets Should Choose A Windshield Repair Before A Replacement
At Dynamo Windshield Repair, we understand that your business loses money and valuable time when your vehicles are in the shop due to windshield damage. It’s never good to put off a windshield repair for your fleet’s vehicles. Small damage on the windshield will eventually turn into a windshield replacement, costing you more time and money!
It is important to have your fleet’s windshields inspected regularly to prevent these small rock chips from spreading into long cracks. We have put together a list of three reasons why your fleet should choose a windshield repair before a replacement.
1. Windshield Repair Reduces Your Costs and Saves You Money
Yup, that’s right. A windshield repair will cost you money up-front but it will save you much more money in the long run. It’s a lot cheaper to repair your windshield chips than it is to replace your windshields. The sooner you get the chips or cracks repaired, the better the chances of it being an easy and successful repair thus saving you costly windshield replacements. A small amount of preventative maintenance such as rock chip repairs, will help you avoid a lot more problems in the near future. As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
2. Save Time and Increase Your Fleet’s Uptime
One really great benefit to a windshield repair is that it doesn’t take long to complete. Most glass repair professionals can repair a rock chip or small crack in less than 60 minutes. Lots of repair companies will also offer a convenient mobile service that comes to you. This saves you the time and the mileage of having to drive to an auto glass shop. Often, a technician can repair multiple rock chips at once, saving you even more time. The more chips you can repair, the less time your vehicle’s and employees will be spending at the glass shop.
3. Keeps Employees Safe
You know how important the safety of your employees is. Without them, you could say you would be out of business. Driving a company vehicle with a damaged windshield puts your employees at risk. When a windshield has cracks all over the glass, the structural integrity of the glass is now compromised. There is a greater risk for the glass to cave in during an impact of a crash. This compromises the integrity of the vehicle’s frame, putting your employees in harm’s way. Taking care of small windshield damage such as chips and cracks will help keep your employees safe and give them some peace of mind while driving around in your company’s vehicles.
Why Not Just Wait Until I Need A Windshield Replacement?
We understand that sometimes, a windshield repair may not always be possible. This is why we recommend using a company that specializes in windshield repairs and a separate company that specializes in windshield replacements. An honest glass repair technician will let you know if they can repair your rock chips or if they recommend a replacement instead. More often than not, a windshield replacement company will upsell a small chip repair into a windshield replacement because they make more money. It is in their best interest to increase sales for the company. This is why we suggest using a windshield repair only company, as there will be no reason for them to upsell you a replacement.
So there you have it, our three reasons why your company should choose a windshield repair before a windshield replacement. Windshield repairs save your company money, save you more time and keep your employee’s safe.
