Mary Contreras State Farm Agency Announces Annual Free Windshield Chip Repair Event

Windshield glass damage accounts for millions of dollars in yearly insurance claims. Visit to learn how drivers can get it fixed for free at Mary Contreras' annual event.


Tempe, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/16/2015 -- Insurance Journal reports glass damage accounts for 7.5 million dollars in insurance claims each year. Eighty percent of those claims are specifically for windshield damage. When a windshield is cracked, timely repair is a must. Unfortunately, many people avoid getting the chip repaired because they either believe that it will cost them too much or they don't make it a priority and end up forgetting about it.

Knowing how dangerous it can be to let even the smallest windshield cracks and chips go unchecked, Mary Contreras State Farm Agency began hosting an annual Pumpkin Patch & Free Windshield Chip Repair Event over a decade ago. Now in its 14th year, the event has become popular with drivers who need to have windshield chips taken care of by a professional. This year's free event is being held on October 17th, 2015 from 9 A.M. to 12 P.M. at 2145 E Warner Rd Suite 101, Tempe, AZ 85284.

Mary Contreras, owner of the Mary Contreras State Farm Agency, stated "Drivers need to know that getting a chipped windshield repaired as quickly as possible is best. If they neglect the chip, the windshield damage will likely spread. Unfortunately, large cracks require total windshield replacement, and the driver may be responsible for the entire deductible. In some cases, drivers may have to cover the total replacement cost. We hold this event every year so that local drivers who have chipped windshields don't have to worry about facing this situation. We want them to know that we're here to lend a helping hand and help them get the problem fixed before it becomes costly."

As Contreras explains, "Not only can drivers get their windshields repaired for free courtesy of the Contreras State Farm Agency, but we'll have fun activities for the whole family while they wait. There will be complimentary snacks and drinks, face painting, a children's pumpkin decorating contest, and a spin the wheel game with tons of prizes. This event gives us a chance to reach out and connect with the community we love so much."

"Driving with a cracked windshield is a safety hazard, both to the driver of that particular vehicle and to the other drivers on the road – especially if the crack interferes with the driver's ability to see well. We care about the families here, and this family-friendly event allows us to do our part to keep everyone safe out there on the roads and highways."
