Should I make a claim?
Before deciding to make a glass insurance claim it is important to analyse your situation and how a claim will affect your insurance policy in the future. Many insurance policies are designed to discourage small claims by incorporating an excess, which is to be paid by the insured on every claim. The most common excess amounts would be between one hundred and five hundred dollars but some are even as high as one thousand dollars. Obviously if the value of your glass repair is close to the excess amount it would not be advisable to lodge a claim. Besides having to pay your excess some insurance policies will also penalise you by increasing your yearly premium for the following year.
