This is the time of year when windshield claims become more common. Road salt, debris, and alot of other gunk seems to be on the roads just waiting to be picked up by the rear tire of the guy in front of you....POP!
The next thing you know, you've got a chip in the windshield. Now if you're like me (which means your old enough to remember when men wore hats...real hats...fedoras!), you were told that you might as well wait until the windshield completely cracks before you replace it. Not so anymore, as long as you have comprehensive coverage on the vehicle. Advances in technology allow glass companies to repair many of these little dings. In fact, most insurance companies will waive your comprehensive deductible if the windshield is repairable. It doesn't hurt to check it out. A qualified glass representative will be able to tell you if the damage can be fixed.
By the way...do you have a $500 deductible on comprehensive? Call us to see what a $100 deductible would be. You might be pleasantly surprised. If you are an existing client, we can change it with a phone call (as long as you don't have existing damage to the vehicle). Also, ask us about Auto-Owners Insurance. They offer a $0 glass deductible at a small extra cost.
