How to Reduce Your Windshield Replacement Cost


There are many things that you can do to reduce your windshield replacement cost and keep some money in your pocket. Having a broken windshield doesn't automatically mean spending a couple hundred dollars, so follow these steps to get yours for less.

  • Negotiate for a lower windshield replacement cost. Like many other goods and services, how much you pay for your windshield replacement is negotiable. Don't be afraid to ask for a lower price, most companies will work with you to retain your business.

  • Wait if you can. Almost all companies that replace auto glass charge a premium price for same day or next day service. If you have another car to drive or can get a ride for a few days you can often land a much better price.

  • Go with the little guy. Many of the big name windshield replacement companies consistently charge 20-30% more than small one man businesses. Lots of the small businesses use online classified sites to advertise for free, so take the time to poke around places like that and see what you can find.

  • Pay with cash. Credit card transactions usually cost more for the business owner to process. Because of this they will often give you a reduced rate for a cash payment.

  • Bring your car to their garage or shop instead of having them come to you. Mobile glass replacement is very convenient, but it does cost a little bit more. If you can arrange a way to get your car to their garage it will save on your total replacement cost, just make sure that the crack in your windshield doesn't obstruct your vision.
