Windshield Replacement


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I am looking for input from those of you that replace windshields. I have dealt with several local installers and they are all flighty and hard to deal with. I would like to find a source for technician training and a wholesale supplier in my area ( Ventura County in southern California.)

 

I've poked around on the net and haven't found much of any value, just links to all the glass replacement companies etc.

 

My shop is general repair and maintenance, so I have plenty of customers to market glass repair and replacement to, I do suspension repair, electrical and alignments for a couple of body shops, and they would like me to do their glass work also.

 

Thanks

We have many glass companies in our area that come right to our shop and perform the glass replacement. It works out pretty good. We work with the insurance company on behalf of the customer and get a percentage of the job. We handle the paper work only. The only problems we have is the insurance companies and what they are willing to pay. But, as far as the job is concerned, I am happy with the work these sub contractirs do. We used to make more money a few years back, but the insurance companies have gotten tougher to deal with. If the customer does not want to go thru insurance it's a lot easier and more profitable.

One of the easy way to find out who is actually good is to find out which companies the dealerships use. The headache of the paperwork for me is one of the reasons that keeps me from wanting to do glass replacement in general. I have a great local company that does them for me.

      Training is becoming more and more crucial, mainly because technology is changing at light speed. 
      Do you have a training budget?  How do decide how much money should be allocated to a budget, and what areas of training?

      As a former auto shop owner, one of the things that kept me up at night was not knowing enough about all the labor laws and human resource regulations.  
      How do you keep up with all the changes to the labor laws and human resource regulations in your state?

      I have heard from a few shop owners, that they are afraid to send their techs to a training event because they fear that they will be recruited by another shop.  How do you feel about this?
      Perhaps it's time to sit down with your techs and see if all is ok?  People quit for a number of reasons. Should we get ahead of this, if this is a real problem these days?
