K & S Auto Glass

Today was all about productivity; hence the late post.

After our downer of a welcome, fixing the window became top priority. Yesterday I called around to a few different local places and got a quote from Safelite {the chain our insurance works with}. Safelite came in at $189.95 +tax for consumer non-claim repairs. {Our deductible is $500, so filing an insurance claim wasn’t worth it.}

I also called B&B Auto Glass on McCarter Hwy. They came in at $140+tax. They had a pleasant enough phone manner. Finally I called K & S Auto Glassworks. Found a great review & 10% off coupon online. The $129 +tax quote came in the lowest anyway. They had an open 7:30am appointment Tuesday morning. We had a winner.

I got out the door late and didn’t end up making it to K&S until closer to 7:50 this morning.


Pretty unassuming from the outside.

Getting an early appointment was apparently an excellent idea. There wasn’t anyone else waiting; my car was taken back right away. The guy really seemed to know what he was doing. The window was installed & he even popped the weather stripping/trim back into place.


I was out the door by 8:10 and to work on time. In total, it cost us $130 {including the glass, a kit thing, something else, & the discount}. I would TOTALLY recommend them. They were quick, professional, and competitively priced.

We’ll see how it holds up but I have very high hopes. It was a very pleasant way to end a not-so-pleasant experience.

    Alas, the same thing happened to us last night, in Lincoln Park. We’ve been in Newark for a year and a half, so it’s high time something happened, I guess. They removed our aftermarket stereo and mounting kit. Luckily my Garmin was inside the apartment, and they just got the cord and suction cup (I think).

    Thanks for the referral! Andy dropped the car off this morning.

    I just did a Google search and found this a few pages in, and I see I’m about 4 years late on this reply :). We are very happy you had a good experience with us on what was probably a frustrating day for you. It’s not often someone takes the time to write a positive review and as thorough as yours.
    Thank You!
