Well... ****!

Well yesterday I went to get a load of granite rocks for my mom at a local nursery. All was good, the truck took the weight just fine, the guy loaded it perfect as he know I took care of my truck.

Got home, and noticed my whole rear glass just spider shattered to ****. I was kinda choked. I gave the manager a call at the nursery and I told him what happened, just to inform him, and that I was shoked because he loaded it with such care. He was very surprised too, and was actually proud of himself with the job he did of loading me up. I told him I would have to pay a $200 deducatble to get it fixed under my insurance, he said he would split the cost, and I was pretty happy, but then by the end of the call he said he would foot the whole bill..

Nope, all I can think of (since the window blew out) is that maybe he hit the window with a couple rocks and weakened/cracked a small part of the glass.. then when I got home and rolled my window up and closed the door, the pressure in the cab was enough to blow it out

Doesn't MPI not require a deductible on glass? I know if I get a rock chip, or a crack in my windshield I don't have to pay anything.

I get free windshield/glass repairs/replacements as part of my full coverage. You insurance Co. sucks. If you thought he did such a good job then why call them and tell them that you think they might have messed up the window? I would just suck it up. Risks come with hauling stuff.

As for my insurance coverage, it's different in Manitoba, I don't pay anything other than my registration for my vehicle which includes the insurance. I get free glass coverage for small cracks and chips, but not replacement. As for getting a new window from the JY.. even if it is $100 or less.. I still have to go through the hassle of removing this one, and finding someone to install the new window.

And as for "risk of hauling".. I completely understand that. I was not calling the guy to get anything out of him, I was just letting him know what happened, and he offered to cover it for me.

I forgot you're in Canada and insurance is different there. We don't have anything like that here in Arizona. No pics of the load??
