Get repaired at no charge?
Waiting long after a stone impact can quickly become needlessly costly. When the glass heats up or cools down or when driving over a pothole, a small stone chip damage may quickly become a larger crack. In that case, a complete replacement of the windshield can no longer be avoided. However, if a small stone chip damage is repaired as fast as possible and professionally, nothing else can stand in the way of driving on safely.
A windshield repair is usually completely free of cost in partial- and full-coverage insurance. The insurance company covers not just the bill. Even the deductible is not required to be paid by the vehicle owner. The tariff does not increase due to the damages. If a windshield replacement is necessary, car owners having partial- and full-coverage insurance pay, at the most, the amount agreed upon with the insurance as deductible as their cost share.
