PITTSBURGH, Pa. — PPG Industries recently launched the newest release of its Web site, PROSTARSAutoCare.com, a “one-stop-shop” designed to help car owners obtain price quotes and service for damaged auto glass without making any phone calls or searching multiple Web sites.
The site allows consumers to search among glass shop retailers in their areas based on safety, cost, qualifications, satisfaction ratings and more.
"PROSTARSAutoCare.com is an online, searchable database for car owners who are looking to repair or replace their auto glass," said Fahmy Mechael, manager of business integration and development. "We want to give visitors to our site the opportunity to fully understand what kind of service they are paying for."
Users simply enter their zip code, vehicle information and type and location of the glass damage. Participating repair shops in the designated area will then be displayed to the user. They can choose up to three shops and immediately receive price quotes from the selected shops. Once the car owner determines the shop that best meets their needs, they can schedule a service appointment online.
More than 1,300 auto glass professionals are currently registered as part of a nationwide network of glass shop retailers through PROSTARSAutoCare.com. In addition to providing price quotes and scheduling service, the site offers a number of automotive resources including car safety tips, live chat with customer service representatives and a frequently asked questions section.
