Quality of Glass
Know what quality of glass you are looking for and if that auto glass shop carries and offers that option. At Quick-Set Auto Glass we offer and recommend OEM Glass, Original Equipment Manufacturer. This is auto glass that is made by the same manufacturer as your vehicle's original auto glass.

This will allow your auto glass experts to select the best possible solution for your auto glass needs and ensure they are using the appropriate tools and products for your specific area.

Turn Around Time
Be sure to know what a company's drive away time is. With new technology and experience, a true expert in auto glass should not need to keep your vehicle overnight. It actually should take no more than an hour or two plus an hour wait time upon completion prior to driving.
Pro tip - find a company that will come to you at work or at home. This will provide you ease and time efficiency so you are not sitting around for two hours. Psst.. we do that!
If you need a full windshield replacement, ask an expert if you have an ADAS systems attached to the windshield of your vehicle. If so, ensure that your auto glass shop offers ADAS Recalibration services.
