Hey all,

Quick question for those of you who primarily do mobile WSR, what do you guys do when it gets cold & snowy (assuming you dont have a shop to do the repairs in)?

Short answer... Keep working! I have never liked doing repairs in any type of precipitation but the temp never stopped me me from doing a repair. I am getting fussier in my old age, I stopped doing repairs if the temp is below freezing, just schedule it for a warmer day if there's no place warm available.

Use customers garage if possible. Slow down to gently warm inside car and windshield. Pay very close attention to moisture in breaks. And...schedule later in day when it may be warmer for outside jobs.
