Replacing a Windshield Without Insurance

December 16, 2019

Replacing a Windshield Without Insurance

If your windshield has been compromised and you do not have insurance, don't fret!  It is possible to replace a cracked, chipped or otherwise-flawed windshield without financial support from an insurance provider.  Though replacing a windshield without insurance will prove comparably expensive, it is better to be safe rather than sorry.  Driving with a compromised windshield is simply not worth the risk.  Let's take a look at how to replace your car windshield without insurance.

Do not be Intimidated by the Price Tag

Take a look at the many internet sites that detail the cost of replacing a windshield without insurance and you might be disappointed by the supposed cost of the project.  However, the prices detailed in online search results are not representative of what it will actually cost to replace your car's windshield.  In the end, the unique make and model of your automobile and the windshield replacement team's costs ultimately determine the quote for the project in the absence of insurance.  In general, it typically costs between a couple of hundred dollars and $500 to replace a windshield.  However, if the vehicle is particularly large, a comparably expansive windshield will be required, making the project that much more costly. 

Furthermore, replacing a windshield without insurance for a luxury vehicle will prove more expensive than replacing a windshield on a comparably inexpensive economy vehicle.  Even the features embedded into the glass of the windshield play a part in determining the cost of replacement.  From visual displays to tinting, rain sensors and beyond, the nuances of the windshield's visual display are of the utmost importance.  However, these niceties will inevitably increase the cost of windshield replacement, especially if you do not have insurance to cover part or all of the cost. 

Be Prepared When Requesting a Quote

Now that you have decided to replace your windshield, it is time to do some preparatory work prior to obtaining a quote.  Obtain your VIN number so you can rattle it off when requesting the quote.  The VIN number is essential as it provides the replacement crew with all the details about the windshield features of your vehicle make and model.

Windshield Replacement Without Insurance is Worth the Money

If you are hesitant to spend the money necessary to replace your windshield without assistance from an insurance provider, don't feel too bad.  The cost of replacing a windshield is quite minor compared to the thousands of dollars necessary to replace a vehicle transmission or another important vehicle component.  The little-known truth is replacing a windshield, even without insurance, is one of the more affordable auto maintenance projects.

What About an Insurance Claim Denial?

In certain situations, automobile owners have insurance yet end up with their claim being denied.  Unfortunately, some policies are applicable to windshield repairs as opposed to replacement.  In other cases, the insurer will provide financial support for windshield replacement instead of repair.  If this is the case, ask the insurance agent if comprehensive coverage includes replacement/repair.  Even if the insurance representative states the coverage does not provide financial support for replacement, it is still sensible to have the windshield replaced by our team of auto glass aficionados.
