Auto Glass: Insurance Information

We have collaborated with most of the insurance companies around. If you would like us to look into your insurance claims, all you have to do is schedule an appointment, provide us with your insurance details and give us the authority to act on your behalf. We will handle all of the paperwork for you and also file the claim in a timely and efficient manner so that you are not put under an unnecessary burden.

Many insurance companies provide free chip repair if you are not going to replace your windshield. If you have comprehensive auto insurance coverage your windshield or auto glass replacement will be covered. You only have to pay your deductible.

Only your claim history and how your insurance company handles those claims will determine the impact that is made on your premiums. If you ever have to pay a higher premium, we will get you in touch with your broker or insurance company. If you have not made any claims in the past, some insurers also cover your deductible when it comes to a replacement. So get in touch with us and we will see what we can do.

If you only have liability coverage, it will offer coverage for the damages that have happened to another vehicle only. Auto glass services and facilities do not come under your liability policy.

If you have full coverage then of course it will be paid for by the insurance company after your comprehensive deductible is taken into account. Do not mix up your comprehensive deductible with your collision deductible as the latter is usually higher and does not include windshield repair/replacement. If you are confused, you can simply get in touch with us and we will see to the rest.

You are held responsible for any cost that reaches up to your deductible amount. If the cost goes above your deductible, it is your insurance company that pays up the amount. If you encounter a problem or have a high deductible, just give us a call and we can help you out with the same.

Many insurance companies provide full coverage with no deductible for windshield repair so that the cost you have to pay rounds up to zero. But it is best to call your insurance company and confirm your insurance coverage before proceeding with repairs.
