Question: How Do I Report A Car Break In??

File a police report.

To make a report, call the police office’s non-emergency number – not 911.

While not all break-ins can be investigated, the report will help officers track local crime trends and can provide documentation for your insurer if you file a claim.

Do I call 911 if my car was broken into?

Call 911. Don’t touch anything. File a police report. File a claim with your car insurance carrier if there’s damage to your vehicle.

What do you do if your rental car gets broken into?

I was also at a loss about what to do, so here are my tips about what you need to do if your car gets broken into:

  • Call the police.
  • Take photos.
  • 4. Make a list of everything that was stolen.
  • Call your insurance company.
  • Get your car repaired.
  • Locate proof of ownership of your goods.
  • Start replacing your stolen items.

Does insurance cover broken windows?

When one of the windows of your car is shattered, cracked or chipped as a result of something other than a collision, comprehensive coverage may pay for the window to be repaired or replaced. Some policies only cover broken glass from you side and rear windows, but won’t pay to repair or replace your car’s windshield.
