“COVID-19 seems to become more taxing as time continues and more is learned about the virus. Solera recently held a webinar COVID-19 What’s Now and What’s Next, where a panel of the company’s experts addressed how the virus is impacting the industry on a global level.

“It’s an unprecedented situation where we have been forced to think outside of the box to look for better solutions; in the U.S. and we’ve seen most of the shops still open,” said Ramon Suarez, Solera regional managing director, as he began explaining what the company has been noticing. “The country’s auto glass claims volumes are down by 50% and auto glass replacement services are down 30%.””

Due to the lockdown restrictions across most of the U.S., many people aren’t driving as often as they normally would. This is especially true for those who drove for their work commutes. Less driving means less accidents which trickles down to fewer insurance claims for auto glass. Because of this sudden drop in claims, auto glass shops have had to adjust their business operations accordingly.

As an essential business, we at IAS Auto Glass are doing everything possible to provide service to those in need. Even if you aren’t driving, your auto glass may still become damaged from vandalism, break-ins, or an “act of god”.
