Safelite Takes Over Country Financial’s Auto Glass Services

Safelite has begun administering claims for Country Financial’s auto glass program. LYNX Services (LYNX) was the previous claims administrator. The change was effective January 1, 2021.

“We’re excited to enhance our partnership with Country Financial and to have them join our program,” said Renee Cacchillo, Safelite executive vice president and chief customer experience officer.

As of press time Country Financial had yet to respond to glassBYTEs request for comment.

    Monopoly! Monopoly! Monopoly! Why do insurance companies bend to the knee for Safelite. Just say NO!

    Congrats to the evil empire. Is this yet another top 25 insurance company for whom they operate as the fox guarding the henhouse?

    This will cost me thousands per her. Not only from the steeper discount…but for the theft of claims they will steer their way!

    Starting to wonder if the auto glass industry is over for local shops with what safelite is getting away with. I just want to throw up. They’re stealing my families hard work. Our business by getting every single insurance company to agree to use them not us plus a million other things I could write about all day. It’s only a matter of time now yall. Better start looking at other careers. This is all I know how to do, the only thing I’m good at. I worked so hard to get here to have them cut us out unfairly for the sake of greed.

    What a joke!

    I’d like to add that since this announcement was made our shop has completely stopped receiving dispatches for lynx. Safelite is literally STEALING ALL INSURANCE JOBS ACROSS THE BOARD and nobody cares. What they’re doing is ILLEGAL or at least it’s supposed to be. Guess when you make that much $$$ you can do whatever you want. My husband and I have more than a decade of perfecting this craft are now starting to look into other careers as Safelite has not just stolen our insurance jobs but our livelihood. This is so pathetic that Americans won’t stand up for American Small Business, the courts give us no reprieve. SGC should have NEVER been allowed to be the TPA for every insurance company, that’s when things became truly unfair in this market, that was the day all our dreams died.
