To learn more about the steps involved in filing an insurance claim, keep reading:

Step 1

Before heading to a trusted, local repair shop like ours in Mississauga, you’ll want to first contact your insurance company to confirm that your vehicle and its damages are covered by your existing insurance policy.

Step 2

The second step is to determine your deductibles from your previous conversation with your insurance company. During your call, you’ll want to compare your costs for repair or replacement against your deductible amount to determine whether or not you should file a claim. To compare these costs, you will need to receive an estimate from a technician from your auto glass repair shop.

Step 3

Once you’ve determined whether or not your claim is a worthwhile option for your case, you’ll want to reconnect with your insurance representative to begin filing your claim. Oftentimes, filing a claim can be a tedious process which involves sending your insurance company photos of the damages, as well as more information about the extent and circumstances of your damages. Once your claim is filed, your insurance company will then review your case and determine whether or not you qualified for the claim. Should you qualify, you can then ask your auto glass technician to either bill your insurance company directly, or alternatively, you may request to receive your claim via cheque in the mail. At Speers Auto Glass, we pay up to 100% on insurance deductibles.
