It all started late in 2010 and I was unemployed and looking for work.Until I learned that 11 million windshields go into the dump every year and I wanted to do something “green” for the environment. I decided a windshield chip repair business would be a good idea.
I received intensive training from a local Colorado company called Crack Eraser. Since I have opened in 2010 as of July 1st of 2017 I have done over 18,000 chips.
I initially thought this would be a part time job while I looked for work.
I bought a bicycle and a kid carrier and my tools. I put my tools in the kid carrier and started doing “mobile” rock chip repair for car dealers and local companies. Through word-of-mouth I started doing repairs for the general public as well.
Before I knew it, my part time job was my profession. I moved to 1229 East Mulberry street here in Fort Collins, where I set up a tent, chair and a table then to a van and a gazebo. I never imagined how busy we would be and how satisfying it is knowing that we are keeping part of 11 million windshields out of the landfill.
