A windshield not only protects occupants from environmental elements but also acts as a protective layer, keeping occupants safe from injury in the event of an accident. Moreover, the windshield also provides structural integrity to your car. If your windshield is chipped or cracked, it should be fixed right away.

Unlike other states, most Minnesotans have full glass coverage and have the right to take their vehicles to the repair garage of their choice. The insurance company cannot provide a limited list or use coercion to force a customer to follow the insurance company’s directive.

Read online reviews

Learning about other people's experiences with the company gives insight into what you can expect. Check Facebook, Yelp, and Google reviews for the best information. Read several reviews to get a good idea of the quality, trustworthiness, and convenience of the service.

Inquire about a lifetime guarantee

Check whether the auto glass company provides a warranty or not. A warranty signals that the company is confident in the quality of its work. It also means that if any issues arise in the future, the auto glass company will handle the repair and you won’t have to pay your deductible again. You can take it back to the shop and they’ll fix it for you. If a company doesn’t offer a warranty, you’ll be at risk of paying for an expensive repair in the case of an incorrect installation. Auto Glass Express offers a lifetime warranty.

Check whether it is registered with the Auto Glass Safety Council

For a job done right, contact a repair shop that is a Registered Member Company with the Auto Glass Safety Council (AGSC formerly AGRSS) and employs AGSC Certified Technicians. These technicians have knowledge in all types of auto glass replacement, vehicle occupant safety, adhesive systems, custom-cut laminated glass parts, and safety procedures.

Registered Member Companies meet the AGRSS Standard and are committed to safety and quality at the highest level. An Auto Glass Safety Council AGRSS membership includes random third-party safety audits, continuing education, and higher-quality work. These companies abide by federal, state, and local legal requirements and promptly fulfill contractual obligations.

Most companies are not AGRSS certified. Auto Glass Express is a Twin Cities AGSC Registered Member Company.

Make sure that they work with high-quality materials

When selecting which auto-glass company to work with, make sure to ask them what type of material they work with. A reputed provider will ensure that their products are authentic. The right company will use the same adhesive as the manufacturer. High-quality urethane has a PSI of 1,000 and is designed to hold the glass in place during a collision.
