If you have a chipped or cracked windshield you’d probably love to have it fixed, but you think you can’t afford it. Well, here is some great news that’ll make your day.
Change Windshield Glass
You can change the windshield glass for free. And better yet, they will stop by your work, home or wherever you are and doing it there.
Almost all windshield repair companies fix windshields from their van. They’ll make an appointment with you wherever you are. They’ll come to your home, work or even while you’re in your dance class. Pulling out the old glass and putting in new glass is a quick process for these professionals. They can do chip repairs quickly, too.
Your Insurance Deductible
If you’re concerned about having to pay that $250, $500 or $1000 deductible, forget about it. Almost all windshield repair companies waive the deductible for you. They want to make sure you have a good windshield in order to drive safely, so they are willing to work for what the insurance company pays them. So, no deductible payment is required. You pay nothing. Sounds great, right? Well, there is a bit of a catch for some people.
Unfortunately, this deal doesn’t include everyone. Those people who never elected to have comprehensive insurance, don’t have this coverage. Comprehensive is the insurance that you must have if you have a loan on your car. It covers any damage to the body of the vehicle. Most people drop this coverage when the car gets older and the loan is paid off. If you’re not sure if you have comprehensive coverage, give your insurance agent a call to find out.
Who to Call for the Fix
To change the windshield glass or get a repair for free, you can call just about any windshield repair company. Ask them if you need to pay the deductible. Most of the time they will say no. Now go get that windshield repaired right away.
