Advice for beginner?

I start my journey this week and so far it seems to be starting off slow. I have done some practice work and also did a demo for a car lot. The used car lot owner was happy with my work and said he would gather around cars and then call me. I have left them at other lots, and seem to get a "I might ...

Re: Best places to hand out business cards?

Thank you, and you are right. I got my kit yesterday and did my first practice repair, I did pretty awful. So today I will begin my real practice and get more comfortable before I actually approach the public. My practice try was another good reminder of why obtaining business insurance is important...

Best places to hand out business cards?

In addition to car lots and insurance offices, what would be some good places tomorrow to take my business cards? Is leaving 10 or so at multiple gas stations or local stores a waste? Thank you.

Is this worth adding to my business?

How much are people charging for the restoration? This feels like it may be harder to sell because it is more of a cosmetic thing as opposed to windshield repair having safety benefits. I read also I believe that the cost for windshield repair is $1.00-$1.50 and headlight repairs are around $6.35 pe...

Fear the drill and tap??

I am new to windshield repairs and my main concern is having to drill and tap glass with a nail, it seems crazy! I know it is probably no where near as bad as it seems, but I am intimidated. I see videos and it sounds/looks pretty wild. Any advice? my wife is also afraid of this. I know that with a ...

Re: My first repair

Just a tip for new guys, as I am one myself! I thought recently that possibly going to a junk yard and explaining my situation may lead to some free practice glass.
