Body Shop Windshield Claim Info

As your premier body shop, we would like to share some important info about windshields.

Windshield damage is a very popular occurrence when operating a vehicle. Don’t forget that your windshield is a structural element in your car or truck. Having a cracked or otherwise broken windshield can diminish the integrity of your vehicle’s structure. Automotive designers plan the windshield as part of the rollover safety features which are meant to keep you inside the car during a collision. Most people aren’t even aware that airbags actually are designed to work most properly with the windshield in place.

Living in Arizona, we see our fair share of rocks flying up at our windshield. The first thing you hear is that “whack” that send chills up your spine. Is it going to crack? Or just a chip this time? The good news is, most insurance companies cover this type of problem included in your full coverage plan. Airpark Collision Center can help you when it comes to these issues.

Should I File a Windshield Claim?

The good news is most car insurance companies do not surcharge for glass claims because they are considered unavoidable comprehensive claims. Therefore, most car insurers will not raise your renewal rates even if you have filed a claim for glass repairs.  If you need your glass repaired or replaced, or have any other auto body need please set an  appointment with Airpark Collision Center.
