How long will it take for my insurance company to fix my windshield?

Does it take a long time to get a windshield fixed? I was on the highway a few months back and a rock chipped my windshield. It didn't look like a big deal at the time, but now it’s a giant crack! I don't want to get a ticket, but I don't have time for my car to sit at a body shop for days either.

Don’t worry! Glass claim repairs are usually done within a few hours, so you will be back on the road in no time!
However, since the crack is so large, it will need to be a windshield replacement, not a repair. Any crack longer than a dollar bill requires a windshield replacement.
If you have comprehensive coverage as part of your policy, you can file the claim through your insurance. Just give them a call! Your claims agent will let you know if you have a deductible that you have to pay—but full glass coverage is often available, which means no out-of-pocket expense for you.
However, if you’re not satisfied with your current provider, you may want to consider switching. One easy way to get the best deal is through Jerry. We’ll get you customized quotes from over 50 providers in seconds so that all you have to do is choose your new policy.
Best of luck!
