4 Ways to Avoid Windshield Replacement Fraud

Over the past few months, we’ve offered lots of advice on how to get the best possible result when you get your windshield replaced. You now know that cheap windshield replacement isn’t always best and that quality varies from one windshield repair company to the next. Unfortunately, there are also people out there trying to take advantage of drivers. Even the most diligent consumer can fall for a scam.  So today, we’d like to share the following tips to help you avoid windshield replacement fraud.

  1. Talk to your insurance first. Never pay out of pocket for any type of windshield repairs without consulting your insurance company. As we’ve mentioned before, South Carolina drivers can have these repairs made at no upfront costs to them.
  2. Do your research. Call several windshield replacement companies before making a decision. Look for reviews and testimonials online, talk to people you know, or ask your insurance agent for a recommendation.
  3. Just say no. Legitimate windshield replacement companies won’t approach you. They’ll wait for you to call them. If someone walks up and “volunteers” to help with your windshield repairs, tell them no and walk away.
  4. Review all documents. Make sure the auto glass company has your information correct and isn’t overcharging you. After the repairs are made, verify with your insurance company that there were no additional claims or charges on your policy.
