The simple and quick answer is: Yes, you can replace your windshield without insurance. Now, your follow-up question might be: How much will that cost? Knowing the costs associated with a windshield replacement or repair is a good place to start when determining what to budget for important maintenance. Windshield chips and cracks are not uncommon; therefore, you are likely to experience the need to replace a windshield at some point in your vehicle’s lifetime. Don’t fret, however, it’s more affordable than you might think.
How much does it cost to replace a windshield?
The actual cost of replacing a windshield is completely dependent on the make and model of your vehicle. For most vehicles, a windshield replacement can range from $200-500. For a luxury car or big windshield, the average price goes up significantly. The features embedded into your windshield's glass also determines the cost to replace. Rain sensors, tinting, and even visual displays are great safety features you will want to keep if they are part of your original windshield. When getting an accurate quote, you may want to have your VIN available since that will cover all the features your windshield is currently sporting. This may seem like a large expense for accidental damage, but it does not compare to other repairs or replacements that your vehicle may require. If your windshield has a crack larger than a credit card, or a chip that obstructs your view, get a quick quote today.
For instance, should you need a new transmission, you could be dropping anywhere from $1,500 to $4,000 without insurance. A windshield repair or replacement is one of the least costly car maintenance expenses out there.
In some cases, you might find yourself with insurance but a denied claim. Some policies only cover windshield replacements and not a windshield repair. If you find yourself in that situation, ask your insurance agent if your comprehensive coverage includes a repair agreement. If not, contact your local Glass America for a consultation and a quote.
