Auto Glass Repair Insurance Claims

The Nationwide On Your Side® Glass Service Program gets you back on the road quickly and conveniently with top-quality repair or replacement by a leader in the industry – Safelite® AutoGlass.

A damaged windshield doesn’t always need to be replaced.

If your car’s windshield has minor damage, such as a chip or crack measuring less than 6 inches, it can probably be repaired.

Since even a small crack can grow over time, it’s important to report your glass damage claim as soon as possible.

What to do if your vehicle’s glass has been damaged

Windshield and glass damage can occur suddenly and distract you when driving.
