Things you probably don’t know about insurance claims and should

Your insurance group would rather you be ignorant of your basic consumer rights. It’s preference is to take full control of any claims and steer you to one of their “recommended auto glass repairers”.

A recommended repairer is a business that has a contract agreement with your insurance group. The benefits are two fold, in that the insurance group gets your job done cheap and the windscreen repairer gets a high volume of jobs in return. The problem with this system is that there may be few benefits for you.

Pressure tactics are often be used to deter policy holders from selecting their own repairer by suggesting that warranty may be void, or only recommended repairers are reputable/qualified for the job. This is extremely misleading, illegal and totally untrue.

It’s best to select your own repairer when making an auto glass claim and by doing so you stay in control. Recommended repairers receive very low pay rates for their services, so its not uncommon for corners to be cut, inferior parts to be used, or low priority given for insurance jobs. Yes, even if the company is a national corporation, this practice can happen.

The best way to find a reputable windscreen repairer is to choose your own locally. Google their reviews and find out what others have experienced. The most effective way to check for the worst performing repairers is to type a Google search. If fact, let us do that for you “bad windscreen reviews“.

Decide for yourself and execute your right to select your own auto glass repairer and avoid being steered.
