I have a big crack in my windshield that I've been living
with for a long time. I need to replace it but don't want to
spend an arm and a leg on it, and the quotes I've gotten so
far vary so wildly. Does anyone have a recommendation for a
quality company to replace it for me at a reasonable price?
The BPN listings are all outdated. Thanks.
I've been pleasantly surprised with Glass on the Move,
somewhere around International and 3rd St in Oakland. They
were quick and easy on the three separate times I've needed
either windows replaced or chips in the windshield filled
in. I stopped in one time with no appointment, and the other
times they came to me. They deal with insurance, just taking
I recommend them.
I just had a good experience with Sid's for a cracked
windshield. They were recommended by Eddie at AVS Auto, who
I trust totally, and while Sid's is located by Oakland
Airport, they came to my Berkeley house and did the job.
They also have great reviews on yelp.

If I were you I would inquire with Craig Gaignard at Gilman
Collision in Berkeley. He can be reached at 510-528-5940. He
runs an amazing shop (in Berkeley). He has a lot of
integrity, he really takes care of his clients, and he is an
all-around really nice guy. I've heard many people say that
you could eat off the floor of his shop. That might not help
you with the windshield that you need, but it just shows what
a top notch shop he runs. The service he has always given to
me has been TOP NOTCH! Check him out!
Steve at Reliable Auto Glass will give you a good price, and he'll come to you to
fix it too. www.getautoglassnow.com
As it happened, I just had my windshield replaced a few days
ago after it mysteriously cracked. My car insurance company
recommend All Star Glass, but I got a quote from Clear
Vision Auto Glass that was $90 less, so I was going to go
with them. They called me the day before they were supposed
to come, and said that actually the price I had been quoted
was just for the windshield, and that labor would be another
$100. I went with All Star instead. They came when they
said they would and charged me what they quoted, and the new
windshield is, well, as good as new.
I have to say, I love how the windshield replacement
companies come to your house to do the repair--I wish more
companies did that!
I can see clearly now
Cal Glass. They're on Shattuck, near Alcatraz. In the
same situation, I called a LOT of places out of the yellow
pages, and their price was by far the lowest (not sure how
they do that!) They did a good job -- I had my winsdhield
replaced over 2 years ago, and It's still good, no leaks or
Can anyone recommend somewhere to replace a cracked windshield
in an older Honda minivan?
Somewhere inexpensive would be a plus.
Close to North Berkeley, Albany, El Cerrito is ideal, but willing to go
further for a good deal. thanks
We've used Oakland Glass...they came to our house and replaced our
Honda window twice. They were very friendly and hard working
Due to a fluke accident, there is a star-like crack on the right
side of the windshield of my minivan. It's about 6 in. tall x 8
in. wide. Anybody have any recommendations on where I
should get it fixed? I'm in Berkeley.
I have taken more than one car to MAZ, in Oakland, for windshield,
window and even convertible top repairs. They have good prices and
fast and reliable service.
Can anyone recommend an honest and reasonable place to have a windshield replaced?
windshield: I can't find the name, but when I had my windshield replaced I
called my mechanic, who recommended a service. You could call Oakland Auto
Works at 597 8388 and as for their recommendation. This company comes to
your house to replace the windshield, which is great if you can't see to
drive. As I recall, I had the company go to my mechanic's shop and replace
the windshield while I was having my regular service done. Good luck.
I just had my windshield replaced and can recommend Frank's Glass 510/548-1434.
I am not related or friends with any of the people who work there or the owner.
It was just a business relationship and they did a good job.
