    While doing lawn maintenance on one of our gas stations on a busy Memphis street I nailed a car window with a, I'm assuming a "rock" from the weedeater? while sitting at a traffic light. This is a 6 lane road, and the odds are pretty good this will happen again at some point hope its a couple of years though. The guy was very understanding, I wanted him to get an estimate; however he wanted cash, we decided on $160.00. This is only the second window break in 7 years.

    OOOPPPPPSSSS!!!!!!!!! Is what I can put that is lawnsite safe that you said, lol. Glad that come off the trimmer and not out from the mower. Hey at least he settled on cash rather than the hassle of the insurance claim.

    i love google theirs a online window repair estimator/quote! the cost for this window repair from three local glass repair companies is averaging $275.00. i did make it clear that the $160.00 was final. If he wanted more cash he would need a official estimate first.
