ICBC to Offer Windshield Repair
It’s another step in the effort to reduce claim costs for ICBC, which says it handled nearly 110 thousand windshield replacement claims last year. Windshield replacement costs last year were 28 % higher than in 2010. With the average replacement costing $820 dollars, and the average chip repair costing less than $70, ICBC says there are considerable cost savings by offering the chip repair coverage.
According to ICBC, the move to covering repairs is possible because of improvements in the technology and materials used to repair a windshield.
ICBC says the new program will not impact a persons claims history or their deductible.
