Windshield Repair Upsells, Do You Guys Put Any Into Practice?

Guys, While going through Safelite's quote process, I noticed that they offer windshields as an upsell. Granted the upsell obviously was optional, and they didnt push it too hard, but it got me to wondering just how many of those upsells they manage to do successfully. Do any of you offer upsells si...

Re: Windshield Repair Practice

Windshields are listed as AS1 on the bug, we have used AS2 for practice glass for years. The difference is the thickness of the PVB (laminate). I would try using what you have. Thanks for that Bruce! Can I also add, when practicing it is a good idea make the damage wet before starting the process a...

Windshield Repair Practice

Re: Guerilla Marketing Your Repair Business

Even though the link is dead, it's inspired me to give Google Images a try to see what kind of fliers companies in the WSR industry are using. This one in particular: https://cdn.websites.hibu.com/fb9f1b0b76014ffd9bb1a63cd9ac2c8a/dms3rep/multi/mobile/Auto+Glass+Safety+support+image.jpg) stood out to...

Re: One cell phone with multiple lines

There a multiple options so look into the following (I have experience using 3 out of 4 of them).

Re: Customer sketchy when paying with credit card w/ Mobile APP

I use the clover flex which is a very professional credit card machine it cost more but it prints its own receipts and allows customers to enter debit pins which cost less than credit card transactions. Compared to something attached to ones phone I feel it is way more professional. I have only bee...

Re: Build Customer Base

My plan isnt much different from what I did when I first got into glazing, and that's to focus a large portion of my efforts on digital traffic.

The first company I looked up was Safelite. I used their local website to get quotes on multiple typ...
