Commercial Glass Repair was Non-Existent

Dec 11, 2007
Commercial glass repair in Dallas isn't quite as easy to find as passenger car window replacement. In fact, commercial glass repair in Dallas was non-existent to those who didn't know where to look for it in quite awhile. There is in fact a good reason for this. Once upon a time, there were on staff commercial glass repair people who hung around the big companies in case something went wrong.

They usually had a few other skills as well, or learned them while they were there, but their main job was to focus on the needs of big rig glass repair. This turned out to be not very cost efficient for the companies involved and when repair became available on a case by case basis, these companies were more than happy to rid themselves of an almost unnecessary salary.

Auto glass services have grown tremendously over the past five years or so, from commercial glass to window replacement and even window tinting. Commercial vehicles have become commonplace among some of your more elaborate and skilled shops. Thus, a near turn around has occurred as it relates to commercial glass repair. Once there was nearly nothing available, now it seems as though everyone wants to be able to offer the service with only a few skilled craftsmen showing up to do the job properly.

The last thing any company wants, big or small, is a fleet of vehicles with patchwork nonsense in their windshield space. Commercial vehicles are just as much part of the advertisement for a company as is their phone book page. Having vehicles with cracked windshields, spider breaks, divots and holes, or God forbid an entire windshield missing just doesn't speak well for the company itself.

Having someone close by in the Dallas area who can readily fix the problem without requiring a full time salary is the mission that many companies are relieved to find being filled by some of these companies. Naturally, quality work is even harder to find than someone willing to come out and take care of the commercial glass needs, but there are ways to minimize the risks associated with hiring someone to do the job.

First and foremost, reputation is everything in the auto glass repair business. Auto glass repair is a tough business, and those who take their reputation seriously are obviously out there for the sake of delivering high quality work for reasonable prices. A bad reputation doesn't come as easily as one might think. It usually takes more than one unsatisfied customer to create a bad reputation for an auto glass repair company.

Auto glass services rely just as heavily on word of mouth advertising as they do on any other form of advertising, and thus they are not likely to blow their reputation. A good reputation is earned. A bad reputation is also earned, not given.

Commercial glass repair in the Dallas area is to the auto glass service industry what the big leagues are to sand lot players. A company that can offer real, high quality commercial glass repair in Dallas has "arrived" so to speak. The auto glass services industry is not looking to support those who can't deliver what they promise.

There's too much at stake for those who are behind the wheel. Thus, when a business can find an auto glass service that can deliver competent commercial auto glass repair, they have found themselves a business card worthy of pinning up in a convenient place for future reference. It's really that simple.

There are innumerable safety issues associated with auto glass services, and in the event of sloppy, unqualified work, the issue of liability can be a difficult hair to split. Companies have hired people to drive their vehicles. These employees have faith in the company that the vehicles they are driving are safe for road use. The companies have to trust that everyone who works on those vehicles, from the auto glass services to the brake repair guy, has provided a safe and reliable service that will maintain their commercial vehicles on a level of basic safety.

When things fail, it can be nearly discernible to figure out who the responsible party really is. Knowingly hiring under-qualified individuals to work on company vehicles creates company liability. This is a messy situation that most companies would rather just avoid altogether by hiring the best right off the bat. This way, the job is done, the windshield is repaired, and the drivers are safe.
