3015424674 ask for rober wyatt.
don't tell him i sent you cuz i haven't called them myself yet.
ask for their webpage also. looks good to me. i am going to be using them.

Also call you insurance, winshield repair may be zero dedicutible vs. 500$ for other stuff based on circumstance the window broke.

gl. r u in the area yet? welcome & let me know if you need any of my services.

Just be sure they are using OEM windshield. Securit is what the dealer used and is what the car came from the factory. It is less susceptible to pitting than OEM pilkington which is no longer being used.

bringing it to the dealer doesnt do you any good for they contract them out to folks like Safelite, who can work on your place. Just be sure its OEM

Let me know what are the things you are concered with, so I can address them. There are a few that was on the fence, but once the rocks start to tear up the car, it becomes an essential for the car. It has saved me many times over. And when you sell the car, you car will be in much better condition. On avg. cars that are in excellent condition vs. good bring about 1500$ more when it comes to selling.

GL and let me know if I can help answer any question about the shield, car maintenance or even parts you may need for your car.
