Did you know that a chipped or cracked windshield is one of the most common types of auto repairs? It happens countless times a day on our Nevada roads. While all insurance policies are different and it is always best to double check your specific policy before having an auto glass repair completed, we have included a list of frequently asked questions below to help you get a general sense of how this process usually works in our state.
How Glass Repair Typically Works
1. Should I contact my insurance company directly before I take my car in for auto glass repair?
While you are of course welcome to be in contact with your insurance company anytime, the customer service representatives at Team Acme can also make contact with your insurance company on your behalf. We can verify coverage, help handle any and all paperwork, provide the necessary information to your insurance provider, and often even file the claim (if needed) for you. This can save you a lot of time and stress and we often already have relationships with many insurance companies.
2. Does an auto glass claim count toward my insurance policy?
Many insurance companies will not count an auto glass claim toward your insurance policy. It is always best to check your specific policy to be sure, but generally insurance companies want you to get your windshield or auto glass repaired, so this does not count against you like an accident might.
3. What happens if the cost of the auto glass repair is less than or equal to the cost of my deductable?
In this case, you may want to skip the step of filing this with your insurance company and pay for the auto glass repair on your own. Team Acme has many convenient payment options if this makes sense for you including credit cards, checks and cash.
4. Is my comprehensive auto insurance more likely to cover this repair?
Yes. If you have comprehensive car insurance, it is much more likely that your policy will cover a cracked or chipped windshield. If you have liability only insurance, your policy will likely not cover this type of repair. Liability insurance only covers damage to the other vehicle if you’re involved in an accident.
