It is a sad statement about modern day life, but the simple fact is that crime happens. It tends to happen more in affluent cities such as West Palm Beach because criminals are attracted to wealth and – let’s face it – there is a lot of it about in our fair city.
They will come here to carry out their breaking and entering because they know that if they can get into your home or business the pickings can be good.
With You In A Jiffy
Unfortunately, we have no way of preventing this happening, and in common with other western countries it seems that our police don’t walk the beat as they used to 50 years ago. However, what we can and will do if you are unfortunate enough to suffer a break in and need emergency glass repair West Palm Beach, is to be there for you to pick up the pieces – in this case quite literally. In fact, one call to us is all it takes and we’ll be with you in a jiffy.
Now, we can hear you ask, how long is a jiffy?
You sure you REALLY want to know the answer? Ok, here goes.
According to online encyclopedia Wikipedia, a jiffy is an informal term for any unspecified short period of time. It dates back to at least 1785 and the origins are unclear, save to say that it may have been a thieves’ term for lightning.
Wikipedia goes on to say that the earliest technical usage for jiffy was defined by Gilbert Newton Lewis (1875-1946). He proposed a unit of time called a “jiffy” which is equal to the time it takes light to travel one centimetre in a vacuum (approximately 33.3564 picoseconds)!
Well, you asked for it! (Oh, and in case you are not technically in West Palm Beach, we also service the nearby communities of Royal Palm Beach, Riviera Beach, and many homes near or in the Grassy Waters Preserve).
Our Definition Is Different
Our definition of a jiffy is somewhat different because we don’t think that even we could be with you in 33.3564 picoseconds whatever they may happen to be. However, if you need emergency glass repair West Palm Beach we promise to be with you FAST. In this case, our definition of a jiffy is less than 30 minutes. How many picoseconds that may be is anyone’s guess.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s the middle of the afternoon or the middle of the night: our response time is the same, day or night. Our expert technicians are on patrol in West Palm Beach in their trucks at all times. We also carry a considerable stock of the most common types of glass on our trucks, together with relevant door and window furniture, so that we can usually repair your broken windows or doors in one visit.
Or if you prefer, in a jiffy.
