yea. i'm skeptical too as i'v never seen it, and i use my ac on full blast in michigan heat.
as far as the original post goes, i was gonna say maybe the mower blew a rock. but i think it was mentioned you blow away from thigns with wheels.
i got an interesting call from someone the other day. their car was lightly sideswiped by a trailer a few days ago. her claim is i put a note on one of MY business cards for her to call me so i can give my insurance info
That bit of information probably came from the guy who replaced a windshield with cheap Chinese aftermarket glass. It was what the glass guy told him a month later when it cracked again.
One time I broke a windshield with my finger.
gotta tone down the anger man.
Bahaha bird you nailed it
The deductible only applies when you are making a claim against your own insurance. They pay 100% when it is someone else making a claim. I accidentally just bumped a parked car with my trailer. The repairs to the car came to just under $500. My insurance paid it without batting an eye. No premium increase either.
Must vary from state to state. My liability coverage has a $500 deductible, which covers any damage we cause. Whether we are claiming or someone else is making a claim against us.
I seldom claim anything until it comes to at least $1,000.
You are probably correct that it varies from state to state because I know the deductible on my policy must be paid before they pay out. The obvious reason is to prevent frivolous nonsense like this.
I am not trying to sound like a jerk, but you guys telling me that I should weigh paying it vs. losing a contract should rest easy with the knowledge that this is not our first rodeo.
I just thought that the claim by this person was so absurd I had to share it with others. We know how to look at a crack and determine it's relative age and it had been there a while. it was quite dirty and the whole thing was pretty much as it seemed.
It seems to be unlikely that a blower did it, but it could easily have been a trimmer or mower. The customer would not have noticed until they went to use the car. They don't know what hit it, but it was probably something from a mower or trimmer, and they are just assuming a blower.
I/we have broken 2 glass storm doors (mower, trimmer), my own truck side window (trimmer), and a customer side window (trimmer).
