Re: Quick Fixx

Quick Fixx appears to have folded up the tent and left town owing me for a couple of repairs. So for I haven't received an earnings statement from them for last year.

Re: QUICKFIXX NETWORK

QuickFixx does not appear to still be in business. As of today their webpages no longer exist and calls to them as a repair person, customer, or insurance rep go unanswered. Chris Mathews is not answering his cell phone either. A check that they were supposed to initiate last week hasn't hit my acco...

Re: I just found quick fixx

Actually we may have just lost QuickFixx. Their web pages no longer exist and calls to the office as a repair person, customer, or insurance rep go unanswered. Calls to directly to Chris Mathews go unanswered also. The check that was supposed to be issued to me appears to have once again been delaye...

Re: I just found quick fixx

Unfortunately this has been my recent experience also. Payment used to be more timely and consistant but something seams to have changed internally. My last 2 checks were initiated only because I contacted them about the tardiness.

Re: car wash repairs.

I spent about 6 months at a car wash as an independent contractor when I first started about 6 years ago. We split the daily proceeds and since I didn't have a family to feed I survived while I gained skill, experience. and customers. It also was a great opportunity to develop my sales presentation ...

Re: A heads up Allstate

In the SW Riverside County area of SoCal I've had about 4 repairs in the last year where approval was delayed a half a day but always came through. One customer admitted that the repair had already been completed when the approval call came to him so they immediately recinded the approval and I had ...

Re: Cracks

I prepare my customers during our hot SoCal weather to park their vehicle in shade prior to my arrival or at least park away from the sun direction and cover the windshield with a towel or blanket to keep the temperature down. One rock chip that becomes a long crack while you are repairing it will c...

Re: Raising Prices

Repair prices really need to be relative to replacement prices in your area. In my area, most common windshields at independent shops can be had for $100 - $140 out the door so my price of $40 + $15 for additional ones hasn't changed in many years.

Re: Drill

I use the Dremel Stylus 7.2 lithium for drilling but not for polishing. I like the "hand gun" grip design for control and the variable speeds. Mine has lasted me several years although I rarely use it on rock chips - mostly just long cracks. Recharge is fast and easy. Jere Attack-A-Crack Windshield ...
