Lowest Cost Glass

Repair shops must source the lowest cost replacement glass option (NAGS or OEM), subject to availability. To determine which option is the lowest cost, shops must consider:

  • The NAGS price with the applicable NAGS discount
  • The lowest cost combination of glass and applicable parts (e.g., hardware and attachments)
  • The availability of the lowest cost option to ensure it is available in a reasonable time frame; considerations include:
    • Vehicle driveability
    • Extenuating circumstances, justifying the need for a quicker turnaround
    • Damage to glass in the driver’s line of vision
    • Cost difference versus wait time
