Insurance Tip: Use Your Garage.

Posted by Joshua on Monday Jul 15, 2013 Under Insurance Tips

This is sort of a focus on something from one of our recent insurance tips.  When we talked about avoiding troublesome locations. These are locations that can increase the chance a vehicle will be stolen or defaced. It can also mean severe weather locations, freak weather accidents and community events that take place on public streets. Ultimately it is far less risky for a vehicle to be parked inside, rather than outside. Unfortunately, many drivers don’t always use their garage for their car. Some opt to use it for storage, some simply overlooking it in favor of the driveway. Ultimately, parking the car in the garage will save a driver on money and hassles.

Parking a car in the garage is almost sure to keep an insurance rate low, or at least prevent it from increasing due to theft and vandalism. Vehicles can often be vandalized even in extremely upscale neighborhoods. Car theft is much the same, a car thief may not be deterred by a normally crime free neighborhood. On the other hand, they will be deterred by a sturdy lock on a garage door.

Putting the vehicle in the garage prevents the elements from damaging it. Even in locations with nearly perfect weather, steady sunlight will eventually start to blanch and damage paint. In less than perfect weather, rain, sleet, hail and weather related debris can cause auto glass, paint and body damage. The elements can also add to other long term issues, like electrical problems and rust.

Animals can damage a vehicle in several ways, many of them mechanical, by simply crawling around on or inside the vehicle. Pigeons and other birds have their own special ways to damage automotive paint. Protecting a vehicle with even a basic garage can prevent most animals from bothering a vehicle.

Parking the vehicle in the garage is an easy insurance tip to obey. You can still use a garage for storage, even if your vehicle is parked in it. Good weather or bad, parking the vehicle in the garage can save you money in the long term, on your car insurance and overall upkeep costs.

Insurance Tip: Full Coverage can Save Money.

Posted by Joshua on Monday Jul 15, 2013 Under Auto Glass, Insurance Tips

Suggesting that drivers can benefit from full coverage is a little out there for our average insurance tips. Not every driver needs, or even wants, full coverage on their vehicle. Vehicles that are still being paid for through a bank require full coverage. Many drivers opt for far less coverage than is ideal as soon as they are out of this period.

This can be a mistake, as having full coverage can save drivers quite a bit of money. This can be particularly true when it comes to weather damage, vandalism, theft and hit and run drivers. Drivers can also save money with full coverage because of the lower rate they get on each type of coverage for the vehicle. Bundling several types of vehicle insurance together allows insurance companies to offer a lower rate on each.

Full coverage means that the vehicle is protected from nearly any eventuality. This can be far more expensive than liability coverage, or any of the options in between the liability and full coverage. It pays out immediate when drivers are hit with a number of unforeseen circumstances. Drivers can’t always predict what problems their vehicle may face, and insurances help to protect from a range of potential threats.

Theft and vandalism insurance seem like wastes of money to a wide range of drivers. “No one is going to steal my car” is a common sentiment, and one drivers will regret when the vehicle is stolen. Car thieves and vandals target some vehicles randomly. Car thieves often steal some types of cars to be used in crimes and some for joyriding and resale. This means any car can be a target for theft, just like anything accessible can be a target for vandalism.

Beyond helping to pay for a new vehicle in the event of a theft, or providing repairs or repair money in a variety of situations, full coverage can save drivers hundreds of dollars over the course of a year. Full coverage policies are often cheaper than the sum of their parts, when compared overall. If a driver needs fire, theft and liability insurances, full coverage will probably pay for all the other types for free.

Full coverage is a good idea for most vehicle, when a driver can afford it. Full coverage can help a driver save countless dollars and man-hours. Even more important is the peace of mind it can bring in some of the most unfortunate situations a driver can endure. Fire, vandalism and theft insurance can all save drivers on time, money and stress. Full coverage also bundles several insurances together, allowing the driver to save even more for comprehensive coverage. That’s why full coverage is a great insurance tip for anyone who can afford it.

Auto glass repair continues to improve and refine the basic concept of windshield repair. More often than not, these improvements are extremely easy to overlook by a driver on site. It takes knowing a little bit about windshield repair technology, and how it works, to appreciate how much better modern windshield repair is than in days past. We’ve found that drivers who know how difficult and intensive auto windshield repair has been in the past, they tend to enjoy our services a whole lot more in the present.

The earliest auto windshields couldn’t be repaired, and replacing them wasn’t exactly easy. They used large sheets of single plate glass that you couldn’t get in a rural area. Many drivers had to get the glass from the vehicle manufacturer, making it nearly impossible for a windshield replacement to be done quickly.

Plate glass was easy to break and shatter in at the driver, making driving a terrifying experience for anyone with glass damage on the road. A new design grew out of the dangers associated with a single sheet of glass. Two layers of glass, laminated together, added durability to windshield design. While the glass could break just as easily, it tended to stay in place until a replacement was available. This was a huge improvement.

It didn’t take long for motorists to develop a new way to repair windshields that didn’t shatter in the way of the old plate glass designs. It became common to repair the windshield that suffered minor damage, like a chip, gouge or small crack. A clear resin solution is added to the gouge, and then several methods remove impurities and air bubbles, theoretically leaving behind no trace of the auto glass damage.

Filling chips in a windshield has remained the primary way to deal with minor windshield damage for years now, but new technologies continue to improve the process. Vacuum sealing, newer resins and fast setting polymers can make windshield repair look better than it ever has. These same improvements have make windshield repair easier to perform on the roadside, and cheaper for customers overall.

Auto glass has come just as far as the automobile itself, in terms of design and technology. New windshields are increasingly more sturdy and safe than earlier models. New technologies for repairing windshield glass continue to grow and improve, giving drivers affordable options for windshield repair, on and off the road.

Insurance Tip: Avoiding Problem Locations.

Posted by Joshua on Monday Jul 15, 2013 Under Auto Glass, Insurance Tips

Plenty of our insurance tips seem pretty obvious to some drivers, but simply don’t occur to some drivers. There are millions of drivers in the United States alone, and each of them has a different set of circumstances. That’s why we like to offer some insurance tips that any driver can use. One of the easiest ways to maintain a low premium is to keep the vehicle out of locations and environments that may negatively impact vehicle appearance and performance.

Parking in high crime areas, driving through dangerous thoroughfares on a regular basis or even using on street parking in certain areas can all lead to an insurance hike in the long term. If your insurer knows your vehicle is kept and driven largely in safe locations and on safe roads, it certainly won’t increase your rates. It may even be cause for a rate decrease.

Parking the vehicle in a garage can get a driver a reduction on their rates in some areas with inclement weather, as well as in high crime areas. Commercial drivers already know how much higher an insurance policy or bond can be if the vehicle must travel through difficult terrain or a hazardous area. Drivers who regularly suffer auto glass damage see a dramatic rate increase, and inclement weather can add to that damage rapidly.

Many drivers don’t realize they can get a better rate by simply taking better care of a vehicle. This means parking in a secure driveway, or ideally a garage. It can also mean avoiding dangerous driving lanes and peak driving times. Talk to you insurance agent about location based discounts and see what they can do for you.
