    Wow, well another way for Safelite to steere the insured to them.
    I have found with the insureds that i work with the most irritating part of their experience is having to deal with the claim process, is do to safelite.
    I have no problem competing with safelite on jobs, it is the fact that you have the fox watching the chicken coup, they process the claim, try to steer to their mobile service, then they supply their own glass, then throw road blocks on to independent glass shops, via authorizations and delays, they have no desire to work with independent shops.
