Coast to Coast Auto Glass Website Removed from Public Domain; E-mails Being Re-Directed to AutoGlassShop.com
May 9, 2011
The Coast to Coast Auto Glass website, which was located at www.glassc2c.com, has been removed from the public domain. Likewise, an e-mail sent to company spokesperson Rhonda Jacobson was met with an automated response that she should now be contacted at a new e-mail address ending in @autoglassshop.com.
While Jacobson has not responded to requests for comment, made both via phone and e-mail, a representative of Auto Glass Shop who referred to herself as “Jen” and answered the Auto Glass Shop phone as “Auto Glass Group,” declined to comment on the relationship between Coast to Coast and the Auto Glass Shop, and deferred questions to Jacobson, whom she advised was unavailable. According to information from www.autoglassshop.com, the company was founded in 2008 by Jeff Searles, and Arizona state records show that it was incorporated there in September 2008, and that it merged with Izon Auto Glass in May 2010.
glassBYTEs.com™/AGRR™ magazine also has heard reports from readers, but not been able to independently verify, that in some markets Coast to Coast is now operating under the name “DNS Auto Glass Shop” or “D&S Auto Glass Shop.” The company’s website is nearly identical to that of the Auto Glass Shop, with similar text and wording, and is listed at the same address of 2120 East Raymond Street, Suite #30, Phoenix, AZ 85040. DNS was incorporated in Arizona in October 2010.
Arizona state records for both DNS and Auto Glass Shop list Scott Taylor of New York as manager; Auto Glass Shop also includes Mark Feuer of Lawrence, N.Y., as a manager, while DNS’s records include Beechwood Insurance—located at the same address as Feuer—as a manager. DNS, however, has a different phone number from Auto Glass Shop.
glassBYTEs.com/AGRR magazine attempted to reach Jacobson at this number as well and was advised she was in a meeting.
glassBYTEs.com/AGRR magazine has not located any other references to Beechwood Insurance, and an Internet search for the company’s address, 1 Beechwood Drive in Lawrence, N.Y., shows the location to be a residence at which Beechwood Capital Group LLC also is listed. glassBYTEs.com/AGRR magazine has not been able to locate a phone number associated with the company nor address to reach Beechwood for comment.
