Re: Insurance Chip Pay Amounts

Much depends on which of the entities is caring for that particular insurance company. Safelight will pay anywhere from 40 dollars for fleet work, to 60-75 for various insurance companies. Lynx is I think now 60 dollar flat rate. Harmon or whatever it is called now is 50 for the first and 10 for eac...

Re: HELP Hand problems

When I first got started in the business I would get so busy and my hands would sweat so bad in the nitrile gloves that it made doing any paper work a mess. So I stopped using gloves and in a about a year or so my hands began to crack and bleed. It was a miserable thing and nothing seemed to help it...

Re: Camera Calibration on vehicles

I have yet to have to get one re-calibrated. I never unplug any of it, re-affix everything to windshield works fine.

Re: Shading

I've seen an umbrella out there that is supposed to do that. I cannot imagine it being big enough to actually be a good thing. And would definitely not trust it to block UV. But most of all, I would never want to attach anything like that to someone's car, there is to much that can and will go wrong...

Re: How To Raise My Prices I'm the cheapest in town.

Never have I tried, or wanted to be the cheapest in this business. One of the reasons why I got into this business was because of the poor work that somebody did on my car, and later I find out that they were cheaper than anybody else. Now I know why. I don't just sell a repair, but like many others...

Re: Difficult Vehicle

I hate it when that happens. But if I cannot reasonably reach it for a repair, I would have to refrain from the job. Its all to easy to create more damage either to the vehicle or my back.

Lynx Price Increase

I never received any notice of a cost increase but they have gone from 9 dollars to 12 dollars. I do not do a lot of lynx but that is ridiculous. Is that an across the board increase or just me and my area?

Re: Could this have been damaged during replacement?

Having trouble making out exactly what I am seeing. But from what I see looks like a rust issue where the glass shop scratched the paint when the glass was cut out sadly, and then failed to at least use a primer to prevent rusting.

Re: Delta vs. Glasspointe

When the glass is practically straight up and down I just use about twice the resin amount that I normally use.
