Re: Parking lot Chip Repair protocol

I'm sure the TPA would prefer you wait in some cases but in my experience they have never indicated it was a problem. As far a I know by law the customer can still choose to go wherever they wish to have the repair completed as long as the company that does the repair is willing to accept the standa...

Re: Parking lot Chip Repair protocol

If you have a phone with a hotspot, in case you do not have access to Wi-Fi, and a tablet for getting signatures, invoicing, and running credit cards, you are good to go. Actually you can do just about everything on a phone now but a tablet is easier for most of us. You can still use paper of course...

Re: Insurance Chip Pay Amounts

I just ran a report on all the repairs we did for insurance companies in the past two years. Looks like depending on the network and the insurance company we have been getting anywhere from $50 to $75 for single chips with most being $60 or $65, and $10 for each additional. So I think $65 per windsh...

Re: Lynx Online now?

You can find a link to the copy of the LYNX Services Announcement we received on the Delta Kits insurance billing and startup information page. It is the last item on the list at the left of the page.

Re: S CORP VS OTHERS

We are an S-Corp as well but you can also form an LLC and elect to be treated as an S-Corp, which is probably what I would do if just starting out. I agree that talking with an accountant is best.

Re: Pricing suggestions

I agree 100%. If everyone had that same thought process most would be making a lot more money. Too many windshield repair technicians compete on price only rather than focusing on the quality of their work, customer service, and sales/marketing skills.

Re: Best accounting source

We still use QuickBooks Enterprise but if I was just starting I would look at other options to be sure and I definitely wouldn't recommend Enterprise for a mobile service. I have quite a bit of experience with other versions of Quickbooks as well, and although I'm not a fan of Quickbooks online it i...

Re: Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas from all of us here at Delta Kits! It's been a challenging year in many respects but I am blessed with many good friends, some of whom I am fortunate enough to work with, an amazing family, and good health. God's blessings never cease to amaze me!

Headlight safety

If you have not seen the recent article on GlassBytes on headlight safety you might want to print it out and show it to customers. Seems like a no brainer that clean and clear headlights work better than dirty discolored headlights but having something to back up your claims is always helpful. Studi...
