The Cost of Replacing Your Windshield in Calgary
When you have a damaged windshield, the first thoughts that typically come to mind are where you should get a windshield replacement in Calgary and how much it will cost you. The answer is a complex one, as the total cost depends on a number of factors, including which auto glass shop you choose. Keep reading to learn more.
What impacts the cost of windshield replacement?
The cost of windshield replacement in Calgary can range from $250-$1000, depending on:
- The year, make, and model of your vehicle
- Type of glass required or whether you want OEM glass
- Special and safety features such as driver assistance and rain sensors
For example, the cost of replacing the windshield on a brand new 2023 Mercedez Benz with advanced safety features will cost more than a 2010 Hyundai Tucson.
Keep in mind that you will need to factor in travel time and any disruption to your day as the ‘true’ cost of windshield replacement. At Mobile Windshield Replacement, we understand that getting your vehicle into an auto glass shop takes time out of your day and can become an inconvenience. When you can’t come to us, we come to you with our mobile services provided for free in Calgary and for a small fee in surrounding areas.
When to get your windshield replaced
If your windshield is damaged, you should have it repaired or replaced as soon as possible! The main concern here is safety – a damaged windshield is more likely to shatter during a collision or rollover. The windshield is a crucial safety feature of your vehicle, which supports structural integrity and airbag deployment.
Some damage can be easily repaired, such as shallow rock chips that are 2 inches in diameter. You’ll need a windshield replacement if the damage:
- Is larger than 2 inches in diameter
- Spreads into the edges of the windshield
- Runs through the driver’s line of sight
- Obscures the view of the road
- Forms multiple cracks
- Runs through over any sensors or driver’s safety assistance features
A windshield replacement may be covered by your insurance
The cost of replacing your windshield may be covered by an optional comprehensive coverage. At Mobile Windshield Replacement, we deal with all major insurance companies and provide hassle-free direct insurance billing if you submit an insurance claim to cover the cost of windshield replacement.
However, keep in mind that your deductible may cost more than the windshield replacement itself and may not be worth submitting a claim for. Your insurance premium may also go up after submitting a claim on a damaged windshield.
