SGC

I don't do a lot of Insurance work but am a member of SGC and a few others. Average price for insurance repairs is $70 flat. That's what Progressive was paying....until an email from SGC says the repair price allowed now will be $71.63! OMG, that increase will pay for a third of a gallon of gas. How...

Re: Covid-19 Shut down

I'm thinking of starting up next week but depends on what our governor says. I am mobile only and every single car I work on (as everybody else in this business) has been occupied by someone who I don't have a clue where they have been or if they were healthy. The vehicle likely has not been sanitiz...

I hope things have changed but when I installed 28 years ago, Safelite's windshields could look like this!
