Make HUGE profits on insurance billing for VIN etching.

If your shop handles glass insurance claims and is not currently etching vins, you are missing out on a little known but highly profitable add-on service. Designed by a former installer, he realized a need for a cost effective way to etch the windshields being replaced, with the same mark as the pre-existing etch on the vehicle and old windshield. Better yet, because auto glass companies are required to bring the vehicle back to pre-loss conditions, the insurance or network will reimburse the glass shop up to $50. Approval for pre-existing vinetch is the same as that for tint or dealer moldings, and the technician does not even have to "sell" or ask their customer if they want it done. Your conversation goes like this, "Mrs. Smith, I noticed you have vin etching already on your vehicle. Since I am replacing your windshield, I will also etch your new windshield with the same security mark as before." With Insta Etch's mobile kits, now your glass shop looks like a superstar and increases its margin.

Add glass etching to your retail services.

With Insta Etch, glass shops, auto repair companies and other vehicle servicing facilities can instantly improve their bottom line and brand recognition, all with the same add-on service. Vin etching should be actively advertised to retail consumers as insurers often give car owners discounts off their comprehensive insurance for vin etching. Your shop can charge upwards of $50 to your customers as they could see a return on their anti-theft investment within a few months. In addition, many shops offer glass etching to insurance companies they currently market to. Hold a vin etch event for your propective insurance agent to increase your referrals.
