When filing a claim after receiving windshield damage, you should carefully weigh the following:
1) How high is your insurance deductible?
2) What is the repair cost for your chipped or cracked windshield?
Depending on the policies of your insurance provider, any claim, regardless of the cost, may cause your premiums to jump. Most auto insurance providers won't apply a surcharge to a windshield claim, but if your insurance provider recognizes a pattern of frequent auto repair claims, you may be reclassified as a high-risk driver and experience a spike in your premiums.
If you opt to file a windshield claim, here's what to do:
1) File as soon as possible and before taking the vehicle in for repairs.
2) Your insurance rep will review your policy and make sure you are covered for windshield repair.
3) Once cleared, make an appointment online with the Payless Auto Glass location most convenient to you.
4) Some providers may pay the entire repair cost if you opt to have the windshield repaired rather than replaced. If not, after paying the deductible, your insurance provider will cover the remaining cost.
However, we understand your busy and sometimes the process can be frustrating, especially when you just want the problem fixed! Remember, we can handle your claim free of charge and come to your home or business for the repair or replacement.
