You can usually drive away immediately after a windshield repair or a side window replacement. For windshield replacements, we recommend you wait 30 minutes after the replacement has been completed.
The technician will inform you if any additional time is required.

How long will my windshield repair or replacement take?
In many cases, repairs can be done in less than one hour. We can replace your windshield with same day service.
We also offer courtesy transportation service if needed.*
*In participating locations, certain exceptions may apply. See store for details.
Why is the location of the impact important?
If the impact is located in the driver’s line of vision, we may be able to repair the damage; however, since this could affect your visibility, it would be best to replace the windshield. If the impact is located too close to the body of the vehicle , we will not be able to use the equipment needed to repair the damage, and the windshield will have to be replaced.
