Call Safelite Repair When a Pebble Hits Your Windshield or Worse!
Just my luck, my new car gets hit with a pebble while I was driving on the highway. That same week, my sister mentions that her new car got hit with a pebble. In the past 7 years, I have not had anything like this happen. Now I need to repair it before the crack spreads.
I visited the local auto glass shop and was told I would need to leave the car for about 45 minutes and it would be repaired. Not really a problem, but it was a very warm day and I didn't feel like walking to the nearby supermarket.
Who hasn't heard the radio commercials for Safe Lite Auto Glass Repair, considering they are run all day and night? I guess the advertising works, because I decided to call.
On their site, www.safelite.com, I filled out a request for an appointment and a service rep called me back in the exact time frame I requested.
There was a choice for me to either go to one of their service shops or have their mobile service van come to my home. Of course I chose someone coming to my home - otherwise I would be in the same situation as the local auto glass repair shop.
For my appointment, I was able to choose a time, morning or afternoon, for the very next day.
What was really nice was that I received a call from the serviceman letting me know he was on his way and how long it would be for him to arrive.
The repair took about 10 minutes due to the fact that it was a very small crack and he was on his way to his next appointment.
I was pleased with the work and very happy to have it repaired at home. I could have driven to the shop and another pebble could have hit my car!
