Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: Had an appt set through my insurance co. for window chip repair on 5/21/14.After arriving the man doing the repair said it would be 20min. They told me before repair can be done I had to sign a paper saying there is a one percent chance it could crack. But would not do work until I signed before and after the repair. I thought it was safe because my insurance refered them and they told me this usually never happens but they have to tell me. I didn't get out of the drive way to walk across to the next door shopping center 10min. When they called my cell and told me your windshield is cracked and had a quote on the cost of a new one. 300.00. I told them my deductible was 500.00. By time I got to the shop they had changed it to 200.00. I stood there while they helped others. No remorse. I told them im on disability a single woman and did not have the money. Now where there was a surface chip. I have a crack across my windshield and it grew as I was driving off. I had to ask the girl for my keys as they left me standing. I checked on yelp and saw complaints from others. They told me you signed the paper. No one is at fault. Not them or insurance. I think I have been taking advantage of. Now I have an unsafe window and no way to repair it. I think one percent is crazy. I happened to be the one. I was hoping for a replacement before I get a ticket. Don't think that will happen. Not sure what to do. Just sick over the whole matter.
Desired Settlement: replacement of windshield
