FAQs about Car Window Replacement

Do you provide windshield replacement services on older vehicles?

Because our windshield replacement is 100% mobile, we cannot provide services on vehicles over 20 years old. Several reasons include the likelihood of sun-damaged gaskets, dry rotted clips and moldings, crunchy cowls, and hidden rust. Resolving these issues during mobile replacement services with the vehicle open to the elements is difficult. We recommend having windshield replacement on older vehicles done in an “in-shop” setting. Therefore, we suggest contacting your body shop of choice for a consultation.
