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.

    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
