Imagine you are at home, vehicle in the driveway, and someone rings the doorbell to inform you that they happened to notice that your windshield is dangerously in need of replacement – even when there isn’t apparent damage. So many folks are shocked and frightened at the safety issues implied by the apparently knowledgeable glass technician, that they hand over their auto insurance card, and sign off on the replacement.
Unfortunately, most of the windshield replacement “technicians” who perpetrate these types of scams are completely unqualified, and use substandard adhesives and cheap or used glass. They are blatantly victimizing car owners by removing their factory windshield (which is ideal for safety), and replacing it with an unsafe product. Not only are the insured being conned into defrauding their own insurance company – they are doing so to their own detriment. Continue reading

First, we have to thank all the great Rochester area folks for coming in for our contest event, and enjoying the lovely weather with us! We had a great time thanks to you, and we hope you did, too. We also want to give a big thank you to Jim Salmon and John Carr from 1180 WHAM radio for coming out to host the proceedings.
We had over 50 pre-registered contestants digging through the sand in hopes of finding the winning token. With lots of families in attendance, this parking lot saw more bustling than it does on our busiest days! Despite the fact that nobody won the $10,000 Grand Prize, it really was a fabulous time rooting on our friends and customers.
Our big winner for the day was Annie, from the township of Holly – a lovely lady and a hometown gal, we were really glad to see her walk away with the consolation cash prize. We wish her the best, as well as all our other Rochester friends who came down to the shop for some fun and excitement!

The excitement down at our Rochester shop is growing this week in anticipation of our big summer contest in conjunction with WHAM 1180 radio, which will take place this Saturday – September 11th. We will hold our “10 Grand in the Sand” event at our main Rochester location at 3315 Chili Ave. in southwest Rochester, and we are expecting a great time!
With the chance to win $10,000, a Carnival Cruise or many other awesome prizes, we hope to see all the great people we serve every day up at our Chili Ave. location this weekend. And even some of the event’s attendees who have not pre-registered will be allowed to participate in the contest and try for their chance to win. All entrants of the contest will have their chance to dig through the sand to find a numbered coin – which corresponds to one of our many prizes, from movie tickets and Aquapel to a cruise or cash.
While this week’s weather may be less than ideal for a romp in the sand, with a $10,000 Grand Prize and some great consolation prizes,we hope this event will bring all our Rochester comrades for some end of summer fun and a chance to win big!
