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), you can still schedule service for areas we don’t service. 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 possibly moldings.
What’s the average cost of windshield replacement or repair?
Most windshield replacements cost about $200. Windshield Crack Repairs typically cost $50-$85. However, because prices vary, you can only know the price for certain by checking with our staff. Our advice is to use the quote form and submit a request electronically. Then the helpful staff here at Auto Glass Solutions 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 Auto Glass Solution regardless of what vehicle they drive!
Various Automotive Manufacturers
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 production of a vehicle isn’t entirely completed by a single company; many components come from other companies as well. All the companies that provide parts for the manufacture of a vehicle are “Original Equipment Manufacturers”. This is no difference 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 make 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 takeover 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 corporations, 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. Auto Glass Solution 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 it’s 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?
