ICBC Glass Express Shop
As an ICBC Glass Express Shop, Autofocus Glass answers many repeat questions regarding coverage, procedure and increasing rates for using comprehensive insurance.
Comprehensive insurance covers damage to your vehicle and auto glass caused by fire, theft, vandalism, windstorm, earthquake, hail, impact with animals, falling or flying objects. Claims made under your comprehensive coverage do not affect your ICBC discount level. Although your rates won’t go up, there might be limits on how many windshield replacements claims you can make in a given period. If you have too many, your insurance company could opt to raise your deductible.
When you buy comprehensive insurance, you choose a deductible. The deductible is the amount you must pay before your insurer covers the remaining balance. Comprehensive insurance deductibles range by the insurance company. Some insurers offer $50 prepayment, which includes any glass breakage with no further deductible. The typical deductible for comprehensive coverage is $300. ICBC windshield claims caused by flying objects are subject to a discounted deductible of $200 only if you choose $300 deductible.
If you purchase comprehensive insurance, ICBC Glass Express covers rock chip repairs to your windshield with no deductible required. The price of windshield repairs is minimal when compared to the cost of complete windshield glass replacement. However, if your damaged windshield is unsafe or inappropriate to repair, you will need a new windshield installed, and the deductible you have chosen will apply.
In British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, you must buy liability insurance from each province’s government-run insurance company. For comprehensive, you can either buy from the government-run insurance company or a private insurance company. Family Insurance Solutions, BCAA, Intact Financial Corporation and Stratford Underwriting Agency Inc. are some of the options for optional coverage in British Columbia.
Autofocus Glass Inc is an ICBC Glass Express Shop servicing Kelowna and surrounding areas. We process insurance claims for many companies that offer optional coverage.

Your Windshield Saves Lives
As we all know windshields are a vital aspect of our daily lives as drivers. They offer protection against the elements, in addition to the weather. It can be easy to take the glass at the front of our cars for granted, but the next time you’re driving along the highway be sure to consider how different driving would be without your windshield to keep you safe. Your windshield is one of the biggest safety constraints you have in your vehicle.
Here’s how your windshield protects you:
- Your windshield gives your car strength and serves as structural support for the cabin of the vehicle. It prevents your roof from crushing you in the event of a rollover.
- If you’re in a front-end collision, your windshield provides 40% of the vehicle’s structural strength.
- If you get in a collision and your vehicle rolls over, your windshield provides 50% of the vehicle’s structural strength.
- It also positions the passenger airbag. The windshield directs the airbag to essentially catch the passenger.
- Your windshield also serves as an important barrier that keeps you in your vehicle and protected from flying debris.
