How to Save Money on Glass Repair

How to Save Money on Glass Repair By Zach Bowman, DriverSide Contributing Editor 
For the most part, vehicle glass is probably the last thing on our minds. It just doesn’t require the kind of attention a car’s engine , brakes or sheet metal does on a regular basis, but when it chips or cracks, it can cost you hundreds of dollars and be a serious safety risk. Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to protect yourself from massive repair costs with a few simple tricks. 
 
1. Get Glass Coverage
 
By law, you have to have auto insurance , so tacking on a little bit of extra coverage to take care of broken glass won’t cost that much. In many cases, it’s just a few extra dollars per month, and it could wind up saving you serious money depending on the type and age of your vehicle. Of course, it pays to be careful. If your insurance deductable is more than the cost of replacing a windshield (usually about $200-500), glass coverage won’t do you much good. The best thing to do is to get on the phone with your insurance agent and find out how little glass coverage actually costs and whether or not it will be worth it to you. It could end up saving you from paying that $200 out of pocket.
 
2. Check Your Warranty /Recalls
 
If your vehicle is brand new and a crack developed without being hit by a stone, it’s possible you’ve encountered a manufacturer defect. Check the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration to make sure no recalls have been issued on your vehicle. If one matches the problem you’re having, pick up the phone and call your closest dealer. The damage should be covered by your vehicle’s warranty, and manufacturers are obligated to fix any safety issues that fall under recall for free. In many cases, the work won’t cost you anything other than having to be without your car for a few days. 
 
3. Fix Small Problems Quickly
 
If your windshield develops a small chip due to a stone peck, most glass repair shops will be able to fix it before it grows into a full-blown crack. Most places will repair the damage for less than $100, saving you hundreds over the cost of having to replace the glass once the crack grows. As a rule, anything smaller than a quarter can easily be fixed, but checking with a local glass shop is the best way to know for sure whether or not the damage can be repaired. Make sure you fix the chip or crack as soon as it happens, though. Changes in temperature from day to night, or from one day to the next, can easily make a small problem grow into a much bigger one.
 
4. Go With On-Site Repair
 
Not too long ago, getting your windshield replaced meant dropping your vehicle off at a glass shop during normal operating hours for a few days, arranging for rides to and from work, and eventually picking up your own car later. That usually meant taking time out of work, and for mos...
