I don't know what's wrong with the windshield you have, or what kind of insurance you have. In Florida, when you have full coverage, and your windshield gets cracked or broken, the insurance company has to pay for a new one.
$275 might be very high. Local auto glass shop replaced one for me . They push "pilkington" branded glass, which if you do an internet search is a house name for a major usa glass manufacturer. Tinted on top, great fit and everything, $140 INSTALLED out the door. No issues whatsoever.
I just got a quote today for 275 installed for a genuine Carlite Windshield. That's a no insurance out the door deal.
After the cinder block grew wings and flew into my designated area of occupancy, Safelite replaced mine for $309. I spent the extra $ to get the tinted top and the SD Logo so it would match the OEM, but without it it would have been $215.
I imagine that windshields in Alaska probably have a heftier price to cover shipping?
$275 for a Carlite is a good deal. $140 for a Pilkington is a smoking deal, I dont even do them that cheap on the side. The Carlites are the most expensive and the only one with the super duty logo. Pilkington or Guardian is another high quality choice.
$1000 dollars is nuts. Curve or size doesnt make the glass more expensive. Usually its luxury car, heated, antennas, or a new model.
Insurance is different in every state whether you have to pay a deductible or not. Having a occasional windshield claim should not affect your insurance rates.
Its a major glass shop in the northwest side of chicago, I pay cash, and am a repeat customer several times over and have referred them quite a lot of work in the past. They also stock a full line of used glass ,window motors, window switches, and mirrors. I even had them do a oem used slider swap in my standard cab superduty . I was lucky since they had a used one in stock. $100 for the swap installed and they kept the old glass for their inventory. I simply dropped it off and a couple hours later they called and it was done. The pilkington windshield was new.
More than double what you guys are paying down south. Stuff like this pisses me off it does not cost $250 to ship a windshield up here when the probably get delivery every week and a freight discount!
