Junk Yards Offer Affordable Windshield Replacement Options

Having a crystal-clear windshield to look through while driving is so important. Unfortunately, damage can occur during our daily commute, while running errands or even while your car is sitting in your driveway. Just one misplaced baseball, rock or tree branch can spell disaster for your auto glass.

Buying a replacement windshield brand new can be costly and that expense may cause you to drive around with a scratched or cracked windshield. Have you considered buying used auto glass? You can easily avoid the high cost by purchasing a used windshield from a salvage yard near you.

Benefits Of Buying Used Windshields

In addition to being more affordable than buying a new windshield, salvage yards stock windshields for many makes and models. No waiting, no special ordering, just pick up the windshield replacement you need today. In some cases, the junkyard may offer delivery to your home or the shop that is replacing your windshield. It’s always worth it to check.

Used windshields are also a great option for car enthusiasts who do all or most of their repairs themselves. Not only will buying from a salvage yard save you money, it will save time. If it’s available, you can purchase and install your auto glass the same day.

Will My Car Insurance Will Cover My Windshield Repair?

Comprehensive insurance, which covers damages not attributed to an accident, typically covers cracked or badly scratched windshields. While windshields are usually repaired or replaced at no cost to you and the non-collision claim won’t raise your rates, it will be noted on your policy.

If you find yourself with a damaged windshield, check with your insurance company before paying to have it repaired or replaced. Auto glass coverage depends on what type of car insurance policy you have and how it is written. It may cost you nothing out of pocket. However, there may be a deductible and buying used auto glass from a salvage yard may end up being the most affordable option.

OEM Windshield Replacement for European & Japanese Autos

Check your paperwork as replacing your damaged windshield, or even side or rear windows, with aftermarket glass may void your warranty or lease agreement.
