Windshield Replacement Costs
At Mobile Glass we understand that windshield replacement and auto glass repair costs aren't part of your budget. With escalating cost of living and lower wages it can be difficult, sometimes impossible to pay for a new window or windshield when the need arises. That's why our system that ensure's the lowest windshield cost's possible without sacrificing quality auto glass parts and workmanship. To start with we have an automated auto glass quoting tool which is normally highly accurate and even allows for instant scheduling requests. All you need is the correct vehicle information and the zip code where you would like the installation to be performed.
How do we calculate auto glass & windshield costs?
To start with, please understand it's only a quote; an estimate of what your cost will be. As with all estimates, windshield costs aren't always exact. Our automated tool can't account for all variations of your part, like attachments (moldings, rain sensor kits, heat, light sensors, and electrochromic mirror mounts). The quote also doesn't account for all taxes or for your location. Although we service most of the Austin Area (Round Rock, San Marcos, Taylor), Dallas - Fort Worth Metroplex (Plano, Lewisville, Grand Prairie), San Antonio (Boerne, Segiun, New Braunfels), Waco and Denver-Colorado Springs-Pueblo, you can still schedule service for areas we don't service; California, or Florida. That's the limitations of an automated system. Simply explained, if you have a common vehicle and live within our service area then the price you receive will most likely be accurate, less tax and possibily moldings.
What's the average cost of windshield replacement or repair?
Most windshield replacements cost about $230. Windshield Crack Repairs typically cost $85+. Because some are a lot less and some a lot more, you can only know for sure by getting a quote and confirming with our staff. Our advice is use the quote form and submit a request electronically. Then the helpful staff here at Moblle Glass can call you back with a confirmed cost and scheduling options.
Windshield Replacement For Your Vehicle
From Chevrolet and Ford to Land Rover and Mercedes Benz, Mobile Glass is ready to replace your windshield. Mobile Glass services just about every automotive Make and Model on the road today. Yes we replace windshields on Commercial Trucks, most RV's and other special vehicles. However we do not repair or replace glass for sun roofs, or convertible tops. We also don't specialize in mirrors or glass cutting services. Our specialty is mobile windshield replacement and auto glass repair for all passenger vehicles. If you're from the other side of the pond, yes we provide windscreen replacement and windscreen repair for your BMW.
Most cars and trucks take less than one hour for windshield replacement or auto glass repair. However, some parts/autos can take much longer and some even require two people to complete. Examples are back glass/back windows for Ford F Series (F150's, F250's, etc) and windshields on Porsche cars. These (tougher jobs) may not be available with our mobile service and have some increase labor costs. We do our best never to deny a single customer of the quality service provided by Mobile Glass regardless what vehicle they drive!
OEM Windshields, Parts and Materials (Original Equipment Manufacturer)
What is an OEM windshield, OEM Auto Glass or OEM Parts? First OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer. If you weren't aware the manufacture of a vehicle is not completed entirely by one company, many of the components are built by other companies. All the companies that provide parts for the manufacture of a vehicle are "Original Equipment Manufacturers". This is no different with regard to the glass provided for that vehicle. Auto Glass Manufacturers like the logos to the right; Carlite, Sekurit Saint Gobain, Pilkington, PPG, Mopar and others are often awarded the contracts to provide glass for new vehicles. This doesn't mean that the windshields provided by these companies "OEM Parts" are the only windshields available for the vehicle. Once a new model is available many other companies begin producing auto glass parts for that same model at a discount. Because of the contract with the automotive manufacturer the OEM part costs more, but may not be higher quality. For instance, if Mopar and Pilkington makes glass for your vehicle and both are considered premium quality manufacturers, which is better? The OEM windshield? Why because they got the contract? As you can see OEM isn't the only indicator of a quality part, but to the untrained it's the safest bet. Not all windshields are considered equal. Auto Glass has not been immune to the Chinese take over of manufacturing. Over the last 10 years the market has been flooded with very inexpensive Chinese aftermarket parts. As I'm sure you can imagine, not all of these parts are equal to their American and German counterparts, not even to Mexican manufacturing. Some of the Chinese glass is complete garbage. Yes we said it. Some of this glass is no good. We won't name which ones to stay away from (and we definitely can't pronounce them) but we will say that it's hit and miss. To stay competitive Mobile Glass, like all other auto glass companies including the very largest corporatations, will sometimes use Chinese aftermarket parts. As a matter of fact some of our largest competitors and suppliers buy glass from China and have their own logo stamped on it, making it appear to be manufactured by them/American made! So there might not be any way for you or us to know exactly who made the part!! However, there's an upside; warranty. Mobile Glass offers a warranty on all parts and installation so if there happens to be a defect that we don't catch prior to the install, just call us and we'll make it right. If its a faulty part the manufacturer will buy it back and the only cost you incur is the time given up by the mishap. Now you know enough to make an informed decision on glass windshield quality, but do we provide the service you require?
