Five signs of a great windscreen replacement company

In this article, we want to present our idea on how to spot a great windscreen company. Many people are looking for the best possible combination of price and quality, but with the large number of companies on the market- it is hard to know which ones to chose. Here are the things that we recommend you to consider before making a choice:

1. The Company has a good, trustworthy website

Nowadays it is very important to check that the company you want to call is a serious business. When dealing with expensive services such as windscreen replacement, you don’t want to find out that after spending considerable amount of money, you still have some problems! Trustworthy website is a one that is ranked highly on google (which means that it is established and popular), works well on mobile and shows some pictures of the actual company, rather than stock images.

2. There a photos of the Company cars and work available

You must have seen the websites where all you can see are some stock images and photos of people who don’t work in this company. If someone has to use models to trick you into calling them- don’t. There is nothing worse than being tricked by fancy pictures, only to find out that the service coming to you is very difference.

3. The Company is honest about the costs

You want to be dealing with a company that doesn’t try to trick you. At Andy Windscreens we are honest with our client about how much our service will cost. We can be, because we are offering genuinely great prices. Avoid companies that don’t want to tell you exactly how much, or explain why if you ask.

4. You don’t have to wait for them to get the glass

If someone is telling you that you need to wait days for your windscreen- just don’t. This is a sign that you will either get a high price, as they have problems sourcing the glass, or that your ‘brand new’ windscreen will turn out to be a second-hand one… They are probably looking where to get it from.

5. The Company has a social media presence

You may think that this is an overkill, but we can assure you that it is not. Some companies will be afraid of a facebook or google+ page, as these are places where customers can leave an honest feedback. Check the likes and reviews on our facebook page and see for yourself!

With this five signs of great company, you will probably chose someone that can offer you a good service at good price. If you read this far, you hopefully understand our approach to the customer and know that you can’t go wrong with Andy Windscreen. Just give us a call on 07508250825 and see what we can offer.

How to tell if a car has a rain sensor

Many modern cars feature a rain sensor. It is not always easy to tell if the car you need to have a windscreen for has one or not. It may be not working properly so your wipers won’t switch automatically, but it still may be there. Many models that do offer a rain sensor as an option have a different windshield for the rain sensor model and for the model without. The main difference is the rear view mirror- its base can be quite different, so you need to make sure that you are getting the right one.

If unsure, the best way to tell is looking at the base of your rear view mirror- is it simple without any electronics, or is it larger and more sophisticated like in the picture below.

If you are still unsure about your particular model, we recommend to give us a call – 07508250825, we can check that for you if you provide us with your registration number. We won’t charge you for this information and we will also provide a quote if you are interested how much would it cost to change your windscreen and if you have an option to take one without the rain sensor.

A picture of a standard rain sensor can be readily found on Wikipedia:
