Glass technicians mend up to three small chips in automotive windows, restoring the glass's optical clarity by up to 95% while preventing spidering and further damage. Alternatively, if the cracks are too severe to be repaired, customers can apply the Groupon value as a credit toward a window replacement: Technicians restore busted glass in its entirety with urethane adhesives that meet governmental and original equipment manufacturer safety standards. Though the cost of a full window replacement varies by the make and model of each vehicle, Prestige Auto Glass charges $370 for mid-level full replacements.
When Gary Lockhart lost his job as an engineering technician, he took a bold step into a new industry: auto detailing. The Washington Business Journal profile of Lockhart and his enterprise, Finish'N Touch Mobile Wash & Detail Service, details his ups and downs, including the decision to move out of his shop and make his business fully mobile. This has allowed him to cater more closely to customer convenience, driving his fully equipped van to driveways and parking lots for fast hand washes or specialty services such as engine cleaning and window-tint removal. Much of his success has depended on word of mouth, with enthusiastic customers singing his praises to coworkers, neighbors, and dogs with learner's permits.
