Insurance Companies and Windshield Replacement...... WOW!

    My wife has a 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe 2.0 Turbo Sport. The windshield is cracked. Speedy, Apple and  other usual suspects are over $1000. I have a $500 deductible, so will be more than 1/2 my expense, plus the hassle of an “insurance claim”. They all said they would deal directly with my insurer, I just pay the difference.

    This morning, I called Matt at Jewell Auto Glass in Peterborough (they have stores in Coburg and Oshawa too). $320+ TAX! How can this be?? He explained the majors are all linked to the insurance companies. He didn’t come out and say it, but clearly implied they don’t don’t get paid the full deductible, but earn a “fee” for every installation. Another huge, legal (?) insurance fraud, that we get stuck for! Shop around!
