bus_1Whether public transit buses, school buses, or private buses, if there is a damage to the glass, where can you go? How much would bus glass repairs cost? This can be extremely costly, especially since buses have larger windshields and windows than cars. So what is a bus driver/owner to do? At Low Price Auto Glass Fort Lauderdale, buses of all types can be served at an affordable cost you will never find anywhere else. Here is what a bus driver/owner can expect when they bring their bus to our center for a glass repair:

Windshield Repair You don’t need to spend tons of money to get a bus glass repair. By bringing your bus to LP Auto Glass Fort Lauderdale, you save double what you would spend elsewhere all the while receiving the best service around. Small windshield damage can easily and quickly be repaired. If the bus has a chipped windshield, for instance, the chip can be filled in, especially if it is not directly in the driver’s line of vision. Similarly, if the bus has a small scratch or a crack, the windshield can easily be repaired, even for a large bus.

Windshield Replacement On the other hand, if there is a chip in the driver’s line of vision or a crack that is too big, then the bus’s windshield will need to be replaced. LP Auto Glass Fort Lauderdale can do this service, and it should be much cheaper than going to a car shop. The same applies if your windshield is completely shattered. A new, high-quality glass replacement will be provided.

Windows Repair/Replacement Services Buses have unique windows that are not found in typical cars. They usually consist of windows that slide up or down onto each other. At LP Auto Glass Fort Lauderdale, we carry bus windows of all types and sizes, so no matter what, we will have an easy time replacing a damaged window. At the same time, if the window damage is minor, we will have no hard time doing a glass repair.

Window Seals Replacement and Mold Eradication Since buses transport lots of people throughout the year, it is bound for food and drinks to spill and dirty the upholstery. This can cause mold to grow within the truck. With humidity and dampness and plenty of stains from food, mold finds the perfect breading place. This can be both disgusting for the driver and the people on the bus. It is also extremely unhealthy and dangerous. Not to mention that mold loves feasting on rubber, which is what the window seals are made of. Therefore, LP Auto Glass Fort Lauderdale will take care of this problem and eliminate the mold and replace your bus’s window seals carefully.

Ft Lauderdale Auto Glass Repair for Food Trucks

Food_TruckPeople often forget that food trucks can get damaged just like any other car can. For instance, a truck’s battery might run out, the tires might deflate, and the engine might blow up. These can all be costly and annoying to deal with. Yet, what can a food truck owner do when his windshield, windows, or mirrors get damaged? Food trucks often have unusual windows compared with other cars on the road. This makes it hard to find a car shop that can repair a broken food truck window that slides left and right instead of rolls up and down. So what can you do if you own a food truck in the Fort Lauderdale area and one of your windows has a chip, crack, big scratch, or is completely shattered? An auto glass repair Ft Lauderdale shop has everything you need. Here’s what they can do for food trucks:

Repairing Damages Food trucks have unique windows that are not found in typical cars. So, if you own a food truck and one of your windows gets a small damage or breaks altogether, you’re undoubtedly wondering if car glass repair shops have a glass supply of your type of windows. Well, they should. As long as you choose a professional car glass repair shop, you should feel optimistic that they would have the glass supply and products that fit your food truck. Just like any other car, you can go to an auto glass repair Ft Lauderdale shop if you have a damaged windshield or window in your food truck. If you have a chipped window, the chip can be easily filled in. Similarly, if the window has a scratch or a small crack, the area can be repaired without a problem.

Replacing Damages On the other hand, if there is a huge crack in the window or the glass is damaged beyond repair (broken), then the window will need to be replaced. Still, you don’t have to go to a car shop for this process. A qualified car glass repair shop can do this service, and it should be low-priced compared to going to a regular car shop. The same applies if your windshield is completely shattered. A new, high-quality glass replacement will be provided by the auto glass repair Ft Lauderdale shop.

Window Seals Replacement and Mold Eradication Since food trucks deal with food, getting some drink spills, oil stains, and lots of heat and moisture left inside is unavoidable. These can all cause mold to develop within the truck. With humidity and dampness, mold finds the perfect breading place. This can be both nauseating for the driver, the cook, and the customers. It is also very unhealthy and unsafe. Not to mention that mold loves feasting on rubber, which is what the window seals are made of. Therefore, if you want to maintain your food truck and eliminate all mold, be sure to go to an auto glass repair Ft Lauderdale shop. There, they will exterminate the mold and replace your window seals carefully.

mobile-auto-glass-services-prevMobile Windshield Repair Service If any of the abovementioned circumstances occur and you find that your food truck is not safe to drive due to these conditions, call for a mobile windshield repair service, which many car glass repair shops provide at no additional cost.

Moving Trucks: When to Call a Mobile Windshield Repair?

movingvanYou own a moving truck company, and people are constantly renting out your truck. You’ve accomplished such success that you just can’t help but be a little proud of yourself. Though, with success comes a few problems. While a family is renting out your truck, you get a call from your driving employees telling you that your windshield just got a crack. Whether or not this was their fault (they didn’t realize that they parked under an apple tree with falling fruit), you now have to deal with getting your moving truck fixed. What are your options when it comes to auto glass repairs and when should you call for a mobile windshield repair?

First Things First When you get the chance to examine your moving truck, be sure to measure the damage on your windshield. If you have a crack that is smaller than six inches, chances are that you can get an easy, simple windshield repair. On the other hand, if you have a crack that is bigger than six inches and is splitting off in many directions, then you will not be illegible for a repair. Though, you can get the windshield replaced altogether. It would cost you (or your insurance) slightly more than a repair. Knowing what kind of damage you have helps you go to an auto glass repair shop knowing what can be done to fix your windshield for the least amount of money spent.

When to Call for a Mobile Windshield Repair? Once you know what sort of damage your moving truck’s windshield has, you can figure out whether you need to call for a mobile windshield repair. The fact of the matter is, if the damage puts you at risk of driving, you need to call for this service. For instance, if the crack in the windshield is too big, then you shouldn’t drive. Driving under such circumstances can cause the rest of the windshield to shatter, which could cause the roof of the moving truck to collapse. Now, if the glass is completely shattered, then that should immediately tell you that you shouldn’t drive the truck. Similarly, if you have a small chip that is right in the driver’s line of vision, then you shouldn’t drive. And if you can’t drive, you’ll need to call for this service. The best part is, this mobile service is almost always complimentary, just be sure to ask the auto glass repair shop that you call.

Teaching Safety and Precaution Tips to Your Employees Since you have a moving truck company, you probably also have plenty of employees that drive those trucks when people rent them out. In order to teach your employees how to be safe and what they can do to take precautions, be sure to have a thorough job orientation. During this orientation, discuss safe parking and driving. Let your employees learn to be aware of their surroundings, especially where they park the moving truck, where they drive, how fast they drive, etc… At the same time, let them know not to continue driving if the truck’s windshield receives a bad damage. If driving becomes risky because of a crack in the glass or something worse, they should park somewhere safe and call you as well as a mobile windshield repair.

Calling a mobile windshield repair when your moving truck gets an auto glass damage can help you stay safe and not get in car accidents on the road. So be sure to take advantage of this wonderful service.

Hurricane Protection: Taking Action in Fort Lauderdale

HurricaneWe are currently in the midst of the hurricane season, which started June 1st and will end November 30th. If you live in Fort Lauderdale or any of the nearby Florida cities, then you have probably been exposed to lots of heavy showers and thunderstorms in the past couple of weeks. That’s why, in the unfortunate event that a hurricane or a storm passes through, it is important to be prepared, take precautions, and know how to keep safe, not just you but your entire family. Share this blog with all you know to help them take actions toward hurricane protection.

Here is all you need to do:

Plan with Your Family Whether you are always with your family or you live in separate apartments, such as the college kids living in school dorms, it is crucial that you get together and have a plan if a hurricane takes place. Discuss all possible scenarios you can think of, like where you will take shelter or how will you contact one another if you are not together or get separated. Talk over what will happen when the kids are in school, when the parents are at work, when the college students are driving to school or back from school, and any other possible situation. To help you plan, watch the National Hurricane Center’s video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEMdeSV7ACY&list=PL63A9138A2047B1A4).

Build a Kit Once you’ve come up with a thorough plan with the entire family, sit down together and build an emergency disaster kit. This will require some shopping, but shouldn’t be difficult to put together. In this kit, you should have one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days (for drinking and sanitation), a minimum of three-day supply of non-perishable food, a radio, a flashlight, extra batteries, a first aid kit, a manual can opener, a cell phone with chargers, among other necessities and tools. This emergency hurricane protection kit is obviously only to be used if a hurricane arrives and you are stuck at home with no electricity or a water supply from tap.

Remove Any Outdoor Objects People often think of all the areas inside their home that need to be secured against an approaching storm, but they forget that outside their home matters too. For instance, leaving items outdoors, especially easy to lift items, can be a risk during a hurricane. If one of those items gets picked up by the hurricane and smashed against one of your house walls, windows, doors, etc., then you can find yourself in a dangerous situation. Therefore, if you have any chairs, tables, potted plants, or decorations outdoors, place them inside your house until after the hurricane passes.

Park Your Car in a Garage or Away From Trees Another action you can take for hurricane protection is to safeguard your car. Instead of parking your car outside, tuck it inside your garage if you have one. Though, if you don’t have a garage, then just be sure that your car is parked away from trees. You want to avoid the possibility of having a weak tree fall on your car as much as possible.

gas-pumpKeep Your Gas Tank Full in Case of an Evacuation It’s always a wise idea to keep your car’s gas tank full, even if you are sheltered inside your house and you have no expectation of leaving during a storm. Think about it, if a mandatory evacuation is announced, you will need to take your car and leave. You don’t want to drive in a storm with little gas to go on.

Make an Emergency Kit for Your Car Just like with the emergency disaster kit for your home, you will need to make a similar kit for your car. If you need to evacuate, you will have the second emergency kit in the car with you. Like the disaster kit in your house, your car kit should have water and non-perishable food, radio (battery or hand cranked), flashlight, manual can opener, cell phone and car charger, clothes, blankets, first aid kit, jumper cables, and more. If you have babies and/or pets, you should also have baby formulas, milk, and pet food in the car. Click here (http://www.ready.gov/car) to find out more.

Hurricane protection in Fort Lauderdale doesn’t have to be difficult. If you follow this checklist and plan and take action with your family, you’ll be safe.
