It's not unusual for heavy equipment, such as excavators, forklifts, and dump trucks, to suffer window scratches and/or scratches from exposure to the elements, falling debris, or vandalism. But when these pieces of equipment are inoperable, it can cost your company money in the long run. Mobile windshield repair and windshield replacement services can make the repairs quickly, maintain safety standards, and get your equipment back to work. Here are just a few of the benefits that come contacting a mobile windshield repair service for heavy equipment.
The windows on heavy equipment are an important safety feature. Damaged and broken windshields not only protect the operator from flying debris, rocks, and dirt that are found on most construction sites, but a damaged windshield also compromises the vision of the operator. This not only prevents the operator from doing their job correctly, but it could also result in serious, even life-threatening injuries to co-workers. A mobile windshield repair service experienced in working with heavy equipment glass can provide repairs on the job site while providing the OSHA-required protection for your employees.
As the saying goes, "time is money". Most construction projects are on strict timelines and cannot be delayed while heavy equipment is being repaired. An out-of-service excavator alone can put you several tasks behind on schedule and delay the completion of the project. Hiring a mobile company means you don't have to lose time transporting the equipment to the shop or lose time from the equipment being out of commission.
In many situations, the cost of windshield repairs done by a mobile service is covered by your vehicle/equipment insurance. It's a win-win situation because you save money by submitting a claim to your insurance company and you will save money that would have been lost by taking the equipment out of commission until the windshield is repaired. When it comes to the cost of repairing a windshield, a mobile service is often less expensive than a traditional windshield replacement shop.
When it comes to the glass on heavy equipment, urgency is top priority for replacement or repairs. It is important to keep in mind when contacting a mobile windshield repair service that you ensure they are experienced glass installation for heavy equipment. Be sure to clarify the type of equipment that needs a windshield repaired, and only work with a technician who is knowledgeable with construction vehicles.
