Safelite AutoGlass® Featured on National Women's Show to Provide Education on Windshield Repair

COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwire - Sep 19, 2011) - As part of the car care and safety series on The Balancing Act on Lifetime Television, Kim Lewis of Safelite AutoGlass® discusses the windshield's role in driving safety and how a chip can be quickly and economically repaired. The episode will air on September 23, 2011.

"Customer research shows that women are the primary caretakers of family cars, yet few realize the importance of the windshield. Partnering with The Balancing Act on this program is a wonderful opportunity to let women know that chips should not go ignored as they weaken the structural integrity of the vehicle," said Lewis, an Atlanta-based area sales manager for Safelite®. "Luckily, when the chip or crack is less than the size of a dollar bill, it can be repaired as opposed to a full replacement. And, most women are surprised to learn windshield repair takes less than 30 minutes and our technician comes to you!"

To create a positive customer experience, Safelite AutoGlass® offers several unique features such as the Technician Profile Email, which provides a photograph, bio and the credentials of the technician coming to their home or office. Technicians -- who have undergone background checks and drug testing -- complete the job by washing the vehicle windows and vacuuming the interior.

"We're so excited to have Safelite AutoGlass® featured in the upcoming 'Car Care & Safety' series on The Balancing Act. Viewers will learn how their windshield plays a key role in their overall safety, as well as why choosing the right auto glass company is so important," said Doug Campbell, executive vice president of programming for The Balancing Act.
