Consider the possibility of doing an auto glass repair on your own. If you are doing this look into what it will take as far as tools as well as materials and look into comparing the costs to see if this would be a worthwhile venture or if it would be better to have someone else do it.
Try to find any and all options that are available in auto glass repair. See if the glass that you will be buying is from a different car or if you will be receiving new materials. You want to make sure that you are getting what you pay for and not what you think you are paying for.
