How to keep from getting ripped off on your power window repair

First and foremost, we don’t want to bash anyone trying to make an honest living repairing automobile power windows. The problem we have, is with the guys running around claiming to be power window repair specialists that have zero to little experience in repairing power windows and are not in the business of being honest and upfront about their services.

Check References and Do Your Own Research
The best advice we can give you is to check references in multiple locations before you give anyone your money! With websites such as Yelp, BBB, Angie’s List, and Facebook, customers of all ages and walks of life are represented. If a company does what they say they do, the majority of what customers say about them will be positive. You want to be sure that you are working with a real business and not just some guy with a hammer and a truck.

Ask Questions
How many repairs have they completed in the last year? Are their technicians experienced? Do they carry liability insurance? If they aren’t reputable, they will not be prepared to answer your questions and may hang up on you. Take charge of your repair experience and you won’t get ripped off on your power window repair.

Be Informed
There are only 3 main parts to an automobile power window system; the power window switch, the power window lift motor and the power window regulator. Become familiar with the type of window regulator that is in your vehicle and what type of power window problems other owners are experiencing with their cars. The more you know, the more you will save!

Window Regulator and Window Lift Motor. What’s the difference?

Window Regulator and Window Lift Motor. What’s the difference?

The difference is how much money will be left in your wallet when you’ve paid for your repair!

We often hear them referred to as the window regulator and window lift motor assembly, but they are two different parts and have two different functions. Most repair facilities will install the window regulator and window lift motor assembly only because they either don’t know how to tension the regulator once the motor has been applied or they don’t want to deal with the hassle. This will cost you more money if you don’t know the difference.

window regulatorThe window regulator is the only non-power part of the power window system. There are many types of regulators depending on the vehicle you own. Those types include scissor action, cable action, and drive-shaft action. Some of the newer vehicles now have the regulator built into metal or plastic panels to make them harder for regular mechanics to get into, making it more likely that customers will be forced to go to the dealer for the repair. When a regulator breaks, the symptoms it displays are different depending on the type of regulator. Not all regulators are created equally.

When possible, Power Window Repair will separate these parts to save you money now and in the future. Most customers’ vehicles are suffering from regulator problems and that is our specialty. Our proprietary repair of stainless steel and custom-fabricated metal parts offers a more permanent OEM solution to the inferior replacement parts found in the automotive market today. We focus on the weakest points of the power window regulator, strengthening and fortifying them to prevent it from having to be replaced again down the road.
We’re not saying that we don’t install window regulator and window lift motor combinations when necessary, only that if it’s possible to separate and save you money, we will! The more you know, the more you can save on a power window repair. Call us today for a Free Diagnosis and Quote. Call (480)570-5116.

Why Did My Window Fall Into the Door?

Did your automobile power window fall into the the door? Did it make a weird noise and then fall into the door? That’s a great indication that you’re in need of a regulator repair.

When a car window falls into the door, it can be a real problem. Not only is your vehicle left unsecured, it’s at risk for critters and water to get in. Duct tape and plastic? That’s a quick way to solve the problem, but an affordable window regulator repair is what you need.

Power windows don’t just fall into the door unless something else is wrong. Typically, when a customer says that their window they watched their window fall in the door, we already know what’s going on. Unfortunately, power windows are designed to break under certain conditions and we just have too many of those conditions combined in our climate here in Phoenix. Most of the parts in a OEM power window regulator are rated for 86 degrees and in Phoenix, it’s 186 degrees in our doors 300 days of the year. We are a mecca for power window regulator problems.

The next time you see your power window fall into the door, you need to call Power Window Repair for a quote immediately! Not only will we provide you with an affordable power window regulator repair and make sure that you window doesn’t fall into the door again, we will provide you with a proprietary repair that’s designed to give you a more permanent solution.

Vehicle Extended Warranty Plan

Yes, we do. An extended warranty will only cover parts of your system, leaving the regulator and motor assembly out of their list of qualified repairs. While many vehicle extended warranty plans can come in handy for vehicles outside the manufacturers warranty, the one thing they won’t pay for is a wear and tear part. If you spend any time on our website, you’ll quickly understand what I mean. These window regulators were designed and born to break.

Never-the-less, if you have a power window system problem, we will diagnose your problem and work with your vehicle extended warranty program to get your window working and your vehicle back on the road in a flash!

Remember, not everything is covered under a vehicle extended warranty plan. It’s always smart to call for a diagnosis first and then call to see if that particular repair is covered under your plan. Once we know it’s covered, we can take over from there!

How long has Power Window Repair been around? What’s The History Behind PWR?

After designing this proprietary repair for his own vehicles, Paul Nagy founded Power Window Repair in Phoenix, Arizona in January of 2009. Since then, we have designed hundreds of cable window regulator and motor repairs, as well as adding power door locks and other door accessory repairs.

In 2012 is when Power Window Repair really started to see rapid growth. Additional build and install technicians were hired, as well as a full-time diagnostic technician to take pressure off Paul. A new vehicle was put on the road that year and both vehicles were wrapped in our trademark colors, logo and telephone number.

In 2013 Power Window Repair added to the team again, by welcoming additional administrative and managerial staff to shape up the ship! This is when Power Window Repair really started to take shape as a powerful business in Phoenix.

2014 proved to be a very busy year for Power Window Repair and our team. Nearly doubling the number of customers serviced, it was then that repeat customers and direct referrals became PWR’s number two source of customers, right behind Google. It was also when Power Window Repair realized just how many people in Phoenix still did not know that Power Window Repair existed and that there was an affordable company they could trust that specialized just in power window regulators and power window repairs.

In 2015 Power Window Repair intends to reach out to more Phoenix consumers directly through Facebook, other social media sources and our current customer base. Now servicing 16-20 Phoenix area customers daily, Power Window Repair has become the go-to source for 5-Star Service and affordable prices! With monthly VIP Savings campaigns for current customers and a fresh new look and website, Power Window Repair is poised to be the #1 power window repair source in the nation. We already receive and ship 10-15 regulators from out of state monthly! Our new location is also expected to be ready for move in some time in 2015. Join us on Facebook and we’ll keep you updated on our progress and everything else Power Window Repair!

 

Why Does My Car Need To Come To The Shop For Warranty Service?

We apologize that you’re having difficulty with your repair during your 1-yr warranty period and promise to resolve your issue promptly. Repairs completed under warranty do not include mobile service and for very good reasons.

Regulator Repairs Under Warranty

All of our OEM power window regulator repairs are designed and engineered to be a more permanent solution than replacement parts. We can’t guarantee they’ll last forever, but we certainly intended for the repair to last as long as you have the car. If you’re having trouble in the first 12-months, we need to have a “personal chat with your car”. That’s our funny way of saying that we want our master mechanic to inspect the mechanism, inspect the door, diagnose what went wrong and reverse it for you.

The fact of the matter is that we have a complete shop, with all the tools and parts we may need to correct the problem with your repair. We don’t want to see you have another problem any more than you want to come see us again!

Part Installation Under Warranty

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, replacement parts aren’t what they used to be. Whether it’s a power window regulator, power window motor or power window switche, we see problems with replacement parts. It’s all dependent on what was going on at the manufacturer on a particular day. One lot from a manufacturer might be bad, but the next may be perfect. From what we see, there is very little quality control in the automotive replacement part market these days.

Our Promise To You

We promise to provide you with the best quality replacement part at the most economical price. If that part fails under warranty, we will attempt to find another manufacturer of that part or another lot to replace it from. There’s always a solution and Power Window Repair is the team to find it!

Warranty service is generally quick and painless. We’ll make you comfortable in our shop or you can hang out and see what went wrong with your repair. Just call one of our friendly diagnostic technicians to schedule your warranty work in our shop.

Why Does My Vehicle Require That You Remove The Outer Skin Of The Door To Get To The Window Regulator?

It’s almost laughable, we know! A design that actually requires you to practically disassemble the entire door in order to get to the power window regulator. It’s downright foolish. Or is it? It might just be the most brilliant joke automotive manufacturers have played on standard shop mechanics in years!

It all began with the Saturn S Series vehicles. Hundreds of mechanics were left to backtrack and explain to customers why they couldn’t repair their vehicle when they’d already quoted the repairs and had them bring them into the shop. Often times, it wasn’t until after they had already removed the inner panel that they realized their plight! This was a “Dealer Only” repair, meaning only the dealer knows how to get in and out of the door!

This practice has returned in some of the 2006 to Current Volkswagen models, such as the Volkswagen Jetta and Volkswagen Passat, once again wreaking havoc on the standard repair shops, cutting them out of this part of the European power window repair market.

The good news is that anything considered to be a “dealer only” repair only motivates our team to make sure that our customers don’t end up at the dealer uh “stealership”. Our technicians are skilled at removing the outer skin of these vehicles and rebuilding the OEM power window regulator mechanisms with our proprietary repair and custom-fabricated metal parts. There is additional cost involved in the labor of this process and the repair must be done in our shop, but we offer our customers a 5-star repair at a price that’s much more affordable than any other repair facility!
