If you’ve got a chip or a crack in your windshield, you may be putting yourself and your family at risk. The windshield provides up to 45% of the vehicles strength, and in a rollover situation, that rate jumps up to 60%, but if the windshield is damaged, it cannot give you the protection you need.

But don’t panic, it’s now easier than ever to get your windshield repaired. Baywood Glass, located at 6400 Hammond Bay Road in Nanaimo is an accredited ICBC glass repair facility. With the latest technology Baywood can calibrate modern cars equipped with Advanced Driver Safety Systems (ADAS). Vehicles with ADAS can trigger an automatic breaking system which stops the vehicle before colliding with an object. While these systems reduce the risks associated with driving, they must be properly adjusted when a windshield is replaced in order to work effectively. If you’ve got a rock chip or a crack in your windshield, and you have comprehensive coverage from ICBC, you can start the repair process by phone or on Baywood’s website.

The process is incredibly simple, and their customer service team is standing by to help you get your windshield repaired, so you can be safe on the road.


Step 1:

Go and find your ICBC insurance papers, and check to see if you have comprehensive insurance. In order to complete the claim, you must have purchased comprehensive insurance prior to the damage occurring.

Step 2:

Step 3:

In order to complete the claim, you must pay a comprehensive deductible. This amount may vary between $100 and $500 dollars. If you have insurance through a private company, it is possible to get rock chip repairs done without having to pay a deductible.
