Auto Glass? Now how many times have those 2 words crossed your mind in the last 3 years of your life. Answer?
NOT!!. However surprisingly statistically you will have a broken Auto Glass situation once every 4 years. You say. "I can't believe that rock bouncing off the road was so small, it smacked into my windshield an broke it" or I locked my key's into the car an without a spare, I had to break the small vent glass to get those Damn Keys!
Once you had to deal with this difficult inconvenience, it would be part of your life till you have it fixed. Auto Glass repair or replacement have 2 economic ramifications. The first is to pay for it out of pocket. The other is you have compressive insurance coverage that will pay for most if not all of the cost of replacement.
So the first, is I have to pay for all of it out of your pocket. Now 2 things come to mind. 1. HOW MUCH 2. HOW FAST. So you look online for the local Glass Shop and give a call. Your amazed how much it cost, and how long it will take to replace it. Now how can I drive with a clear plastic bag over my door glass for a week? When I was online, I saw that they promised FREE MOBILE SERVICE, that is quick and easy. So why so much and why so long of a wait.
The other is that I have Comprehensive Insurance coverage and collision that I pay so much for only to find out I have a deductible of 100 to 250 dollars. Some are lucky to live in a State where the insurance company pay's for 100% of the cost. But now....oh boy. I'm afraid of having them pay for it because it will make my insurance payments go up. So, I get the nerve to call my insurance company and report the claim. After they take down all of my personal information, they are making me use a Glass Company that I find will take 2 weeks before I get it fixed even though, I called the local Glass shop that could do repair and replace it tomorrow, but they insisted to use the company they want and wait 2 weeks. So of course I do what they want me to do, because if I don't they will not renew my coverage or they make me feel I have no choice.
Hi my name if Raymond Albrecht. I started off working for the largest Auto Glass company on the East Coast, and fortune 50 company. As a sales executive, I finished off being the Eastern VP of sales. The company then get's bought out by a Wall Street Leverage Buy Out. Fed up with people placed at the top of the food chain, I started Hometown Auto Glass in 1991.
So why am I so important. Because, Auto Glass is on my mind everyday. Imagine knowing such a person to call in helping my through the Repair process, teaching me my rights as a consumer, and getting the best product and service without all the hassles. Yes. Letting me be your Auto Glass Consultant, will save me in every way. Why, not. After all , I have a specialist in other aspects in my life. CPA's, Lawyers...etc. Why not have a person like Ray to help me with this inconvenience.
