I went out this morning to meet some friends for coffee, and while in my truck waiting for it to warm up I noticed there was crack in my windsheild[mad][down]. On the way home yesterday I did hear something hit it, but couldn't find the chip, so just called the repair shop, they are coming here soon, hopefully it can be fixed

That Sucks

I found a crack in mine last week. I will wait until after the spring when the gravel is off the roads to replace mine.

You broke a windshield with your hand?

Holy cow! Dont tell me! Someone made you angry, your clothes shredded off, and you turned green...

Nice job Hulk, glad to see the anger management classes are paying off.:p:D

That sucks BHC. Look on the bright side, at least you can afford to replace the windshield.

A friend of mine has been driving around with a windshield that looks like a jigsaw puzzle for almost a year.:D:(

No its not me.

He knows he can get a ticket. He just cant afford it. He works a good job, but its been a rough year for him. It doesnt help that his wife steals all his money...[down]

joe - most insurance companies do it this way
1) if it repairable usually 50-75.00 - submit the bill to the insurance co and they will pay or reimburse you

2) if it is a replacement - then comp ded applies

check with your ins co

Depending on your vehicle the windshield is $350-$600.

I have a $50 deductible on my comprehinsive so I wouldn't have a problem.

I had a winshield break years ago when I had a $250 deductable. That one cost $350.

BHC - Call Safelite's 1-800 # - Tell them you want the shop nearest to you in Lodi. I think they come out of Fairlawn.

Call the shop and tell them that you can go back and forth with them and play the price game with them and Daimond Auto Gl [no swearing please] OR the should just give you their bottomline lowest price...

I've had 5 windshields replaced since I started commuting to Teterboro in 2001 on my fullsize Bronco and none ever cost me more than 179.00 + tax. The guy even comes right to work and replaces the windshield in the parking lot.

They can help you decide whether or not to use your insurance, also. See if they can beat your $200.00 deductible. I bet they can and will!!![up]
