A cracked or chipped windshield can be as dangerous as it is stressful, so it’s important that the damage is quickly repaired before it becomes a much larger and much more expensive problem down the road. Luckily, most auto policies typically cover the cost of auto glass repair. Although you should always consult with your insurance provider before filing an auto glass repair claim, here are some of the basics when it comes to windshield repair and auto insurance:
- If you have a comprehensive insurance policy with a low deductible, then your insurance company will cover the cost of the windshield repair beyond the amount of your deductible (which can still save you a considerable amount of cash).
- While most auto insurance providers won’t apply a surcharge to a windshield replacement claim, if you make frequent claims then you may be reclassified as a “high-risk driver” and experience an increase in your premiums or deductibles.
- When filing a windshield repair claim, it is important that you file as soon as possible and before you take your vehicle in for repairs. Once cleared by your insurance provider, you may have your auto glass repaired by the company of your choosing.
