Being a small business owner is a tough job. That’s why we spotlight a different business each month to help you learn about unique businesses in your own back yard.
Have you ever been driving down the road only to have a rock fly up and hit your windshield? Did it leave a small chip that you think is too minor to fix? Well, JT Thacker of JT’s Auto and Truck Glass thinks you should fix it before the problem gets bigger.
JT should know as he has been working on cars and trucks since the before the age of 18. Much of that time was in auto body collision repair and specializing in working with big trucks. In 2006 he began doing glass replacement and windshield repairs part-time and found that he enjoyed that aspect of the business very much. He said he loves being able to satisfy the customers with a completed job in a shorter time and being there for customers when they needed him.
With the help of his wife Angela, he decided to take the business full time in 2008. Based in Chillicothe, the business has grown over the past eight years to serve Greenfield, Circleville, Waverly, and all areas in between. Now JT, along with a staff of two additional technicians, offers service for all vehicle makes and models as well as heavy equipment for private owners, commercial and fleet vehicles.
The work they do includes glass replacement for windshields, windows and sunroofs and on-site repair of window cracks, chips, bull’s eyes and stars. They also provide Aquapel glass treatments to repel rain from your windshield and on-site diagnosis for window operation issues.
Working with insurance companies can sometimes be daunting for the consumer but JT will work with all insurance companies to take the hassle out of the equation and make auto glass claims a little easier for you. All you do is make the initial call and they do the rest!
JT said he loves what he does. “I have found the best way to serve the community and make a living,” he said.
