Perhaps you have a little spider crack from a stone that flew off of a gravel truck, and the crack is spreading across your vehicle’s windshield. Or maybe a thief smashed a window to steal your car stereo. Maybe you have been in an accident that shattered several windows and a mirror. In these scenarios, will auto glass insurance come to your rescue?
Insurance companies provide auto glass insurance coverage in your standard auto policy. An independent agent in the Trusted Choice® network can help you learn about auto glass coverage, and can also compare prices from multiple companies to help you find the policy and price that is right for you. Contact a local member agent today for personal assistance.
If your windshield, car window, mirror or your sunroof is damaged or shattered, your auto glass insurance covers the repair or replacement cost minus your deductible. For example, if you have $600 in windshield damage, and your deductible is $200, your insurance company will cover the remaining $400 after your out-of-pocket deductible.
The repair work your insurance covers will include the materials and labor charges. It may or may not cover upgrades you have done such as after-factory tinting on the windows.
There are a number of things you can do to save costs on your auto glass and insurance.
It’s important that you contact a reputable glass repair shop. Make sure the people installing your windshield are fully qualified. Glass repair shops will compete for your business, so you want to use a reputable company that you can return to if there is anything wrong with the repair.
When you work with an independent agent in the Trusted Choice network, you will have a local representative who can refer you to area glass repair companies that you can trust. Your agent may even be able to refer you to a glass repair service that will come to you to fix your windshield.
