Safelite to come out, we had to set it up for a windshield replacement. Now I have had windshields replaced before, and at those times, I would have to drop my vehicle up then pick it up either several hours later, or the next day. I also never got to watch the whole thing being done. I found that Safelite not only makes your vehicle safer by making your view when driving clearer, but they also run checks on their technicians, and they send you a email with the picture of the technician who will be coming to fix your windshield or windows. I find that to be a huge plus, that way you dont have a stranger showing up at your door claiming to be with Safelite, you already know who to expect. Another great plus about the appointment is, they come to you. Which means, you dont have to drive around looking for a shop, then leaving your vehicle and hoping that they do a good job. They truly have their own shop on wheels. When the technician arrived, I was very glad to see how professional and knowledgeable he was. He also went right to work. Even though I was doing a review, he was very efficient and he was able to answer all of my questions while he was working. He also pointed out some really great things that I found to be very interesting. In fact I never had a auto glass repair guy ever tell me anything about what they did and why. Within a few minutes of his arrival, my beast was stripped of her badly cracked windshield. I was impressed on how easy he made it look to just pop that bad boy out. My husband was home when the technician came and he pointed out that before taking out the windshield he had taken off the plastic thing that is right above the hood, the thing that looks like a vent, I am not sure what it is called, but my husband said that he has never seen a auto glass repair man take that off. The tech explained that they do that so that they can primer the frame, which not all auto glass repair places do. In fact he showed me where the Beast had rust because the last time she had her windshield replaced, they had not primered it before putting in the new windshield.
The Beast with out her windshield!
Safelite also makes the process of paying for your new windshield or even rock chip repair much easier. They will contact your insurance for you and get everything taken care of, so all you have to do is make the appointment and sit back knowing that the repair or replacement is being done by professionals. This winter season when you are going through your checklist on vehicle preparations, dont forget to add windshield repair to the list. Take it from me, if you have a chip in your windshield, all it takes is some cold weather conditions to make that chip turn into a full fledged ugly looking crack in your windshield.

I was given a new windshield replacement, courtesy of Safelite, for this review. I was not paid to say anything, all opinions are my own.
