Description of service

My kid threw his toy through one of my side windows. I took my car to a local place to have it replaced. They had to take the door apart to replace the whole window. They did it all in one day and had a lifetime garuntee of the workmanship.

Review of Service

I got three quotes from local busniesses via the internet. This one was the cheapest and happened to be the closest to my house. They were very polite. I arranged to drop it off my vehicle in the morning. By the afternoon I recieved call that my car was finished and I picked it up on my way home from work.


I recommend getting estimates from several different places, most shops do it for free. And you can even get general quotes via the internet. Call the shop ahead of time and see if they have a car service so you don't have to arrange to have someone pick you up. Alot of businesses also throw in weird freebees, like warrantees, money off your insurance, and express service. You'll have to weigh these options when looking at your quotes, because sometimes the ones that cost more come with more freebees. And sometimes the freebees aren't worth the extra cash!
