Insurance Windsheild Replacement

15 posts in this topic

So tonight I am driving home and hit a silly crow and cracked my windshield. I will be calling my agent in the morning to see if and what kind of glass rider we have, but do most companies allow a free replacemetn windshield? Thanks for the input

I'm pretty sure you need glass coverage. If your still making payments on your vehicle, your loan may specify full coverage in which case your probably OK.

Good luck.

BW,

If you have glass coverage with no deductible, it will cost you no money out of pocket.

thanks guys, too lazy to dig for the paper work, I know last winter we had a window broke due to vanalism at the park and ride where my wife takes the bus and it was covered with no out of pocket, not sure if a dang bird causing a crack woudl be the same or not

Most policies only allow 1 replacement per vehicle per year.

I have american family and I have free glass, I don't know of any limit per year. 2 years ago I had 3 windshields replaced in my pickup and 2 of them were 3 weeks apart. Didn't cost me a dime.

Good Luck

Most insurance companies will pay for you to go in and get a chip fixed for free. My Am Fam agent told me to just give him a call and then go in and get it filled. If its not too bad and you don't have zero deductible glass it might be worth the phone call to save some money for a whole new windsheild.

A few years ago I needed to have my windshield replaced twice in one year. I didn't have my second one done as the agent explained to me that my rates would go up if I did.

Go figure.

Hitting a bird might come under your comprehensive like a deer does.

I would think it should be covered. Have to call and see thought.

Harvey, that bites. Don't you love how they have no problem taking your premiums from you but when you need it "Your rates will go up". Shame on you for using what you pay for.

It should definitely go under comprehensive from the way I understand it. I had my windshield replaced twice within the first year I bought my truck new, and there were no issues as far as only covering one in a year or my rates going up.

Good to hear!! Most of the time insurance is way more interested in taking your money than giving you any back.

    • I have nothing good to say about his presidency
    • So they called Reilly back up, but part of me is kind of hoping that Prosser plays. Earlier this year he was very solid. You never get elite level from him, but I think he was dependable out there and I have been a big critic of his for a long time. The ceiling is obviously higher for Reilly and I want him to be a regular at some point, but if he isn't going to get 10 mins a night he is better off in Iowa and play Prosser. What impresses me are these numbers: 141 goals for (Tied 4th), 96 goals against (tied #2), +45 differential (#2). When was the last time a Wild team was in the top 5 in goals scored? We have a very balanced team and it is fun to watch, which this balance is also why slumps by Parise and Pominville don't kill this team or at least haven't until this point. I will say it again, I was a huge proponent of signing Staal. NO, I didn't think he was going to be leading our team in scoring, but what I was excited about was that it would mean that Coyle/Granlund could play wing where they should be. Those two are playing great overall and both have been playing wing pretty much entire season thus far. We can also thank Gravovac for his role too because without him, one of the two would be playing center most likely.
    • I didn't get nearly as much done as I wanted, but I was able to take my new fish house out on the ice last weekend.  Fishing was slow for most of the weekend, but we had a good time otherwise.   I have some of the lights and tv mounted up temporarily till I start putting up the carsiding.  I'm just a little nervous about starting on the carsiding until I know exactly how to do my lift bunks.  I'd hate to put all that up and realize I don't have my furring in the right spot.   Furnace ducts are also ran temporarily, they'll be covered by cabinets when it's all said and done.  Most of the day saturday we didn't need the furnace anyways.  The sun kept it 10 degrees higher than what we set the furnace at!   Right now she's nothing pretty, but she got the job done without any problems on her initial trip.
    • Cooter ol' pal,  I think maybe you tend to skip over your inherent decency when you refer to President Obama as " a POS" My guess is you actually have a little more respect than that for a man to did the heavy lifting for the US for eight years and,  on more than one occasion,   has proven he is a decent man who really cares about the issues we face. You can disagree of course with some things-or all things for that matter-the man has done but he DOES deserve your respect. He is definitely not,  as you put it "a POS" and I'd guess you really have more class than that.
