Re: insurance billing checklist benefits?

You may get a little referral business from the networks but I wouldn't count on it. Not everyone will agree with me on this but in my opinion the biggest reason to sign up with the networks is because you don't want to give your customers any excuses to choose a competitor over you. Here are a few ...

Re: insurance billing checklist benefits?

Although I am no help to you guys over the pond on this subject, I would like to point out that I have made a great living from this trade for 28 years and for the last 10 of those have not billed an insurance company.

Re: insurance billing checklist benefits?

When you can bill ins co's you can offer people "free" repairs. Some TPN's will call you w/ jobs. I don't think you can make a living from that alone but it could be a few bucks a week anyway. The downside is having to travel just for one repair. When you get a few accounts then you can plan a route...

Re: Hard time finding general liability insurance near Seattle..?

I cannot help with the insurance side, but do not wait for calls to happen as this will limit your business a lot. Get out there and meet your future customers, fleets, companies, buses, trucks, suv's.

Re: Hard time finding general liability insurance near Seattle..?

You may go broke and only generate clicks Door canvass local business and offices. Establish yourself in local market, to generate repeat business and referrals . Contact RLI, to see if they cover your area of the country. $500K policy my area is about 297. I have garage keepers with them. Good luck.

Re: My first repair

I agree with screenman that before and after pictures would be helpful but they don't always tell the whole story either. Something that concerns me is that you said you couldn't see detect an "open hole" for the resin to flow into and you did not see the resin flow into the legs of the star break, ...

Re: Anyone have luck using a banner?

I tried car parks and it worked, but it was certainly not for me, some are happy to do the waiting bit though.

Re: My first repair

If the resin didn't look like it was flowing, I would have drilled it and popped a bullseye to create a pathway for the resin. I have a little macro lens which clips onto my smartphone and allows me to take a closeup photo of the chip before I begin the repair. You can always refer to the "before" p...

Re: Fear the drill and tap??

I highly recommend practicing on scrap windshield until you are getting consistant results every time. Using a slide hammer or spring hammer in conjunction with a tapered .047 carbide bur will take much of the guesswork out of it. My preference is the spring hammer because your only concern is how d...

Re: Fear the drill and tap??

Just like anything else it takes practice. Delta kits has a tool to measure depth of the drill hole to perfect this process. I am old school, learned this trade in the early 90s so I still do mine by feel. Get a used windshield and practice. I use to ask ws replacers for their scrap glass, they were...
