Welcome to the website of Apple Auto Glass®, a division of Belron Canada Incorporated, having a place of business at 7111 Kennedy Road, Unit 4 Mississauga, ON L5S 0A4 ("Apple Auto Glass®").
This website is hosted by Vortex Solution
This website can be found at appleautoglass.ca or any alternative address (hereafter, the "website").
You will find below the terms and conditions of use for this website (I) and the general conditions of sale and repair (II) that apply to the repair or replacement of vehicle windows by Apple Auto Glass® in its service centres.
This section explains the terms and conditions of use (the "terms") under which any individual ("you") may use this website. Please read these terms carefully.
If you decide to visit this website for any reason, these terms shall automatically apply to your use of the website. You therefore agree to consult them before using the website.
If you do not wish to be bound by these terms, please do not visit this website.
If you use all or part of this website, you are considered to have read and accepted these terms.
This website provides information about the methods Apple Auto Glass® uses to repair and replace the glass in your vehicle and, in general, about the services offered by Apple Auto Glass®. You can browse this website to find information on the repair or replacement of your windshield, side windows or rear windshield without necessarily making an appointment with Apple Auto Glass® for repair or replacement.
You may contact each Apple Auto Glass® franchise location directly and make an appointment if you decide to have your auto glass repaired or replaced by Apple Auto Glass®. If you can provide some details on the extent of the breakage (impact, crack, etc.) and its exact location, Apple Auto Glass® can help you determine whether you can have the glass repaired or whether it needs to be replaced. You can request an appointment based on your ability to get to an Apple Auto Glass® location and the available time slots.
If you are not sure whether your vehicle glass needs to be repaired or replaced, you can ask an Apple Auto Glass® advisor to call you back at a number provided by yourself. One of our authorized franchisee representatives can help you determine what needs to be done to repair the damage.
The information transmitted at this point by Apple Auto Glass®, either on this website or by one of our authorized franchisee representatives, is based on the answers that you provide to certain questions. This information may not be entirely accurate, and you should understand that it is provided as general information only and has no contractual significance.
Only the work order for repairs written up by an Apple Auto Glass® technician after examining the vehicle and before undertaking the work is binding on Apple Auto Glass® franchisees.
This website only allows you to find the nearest Apple Auto Glass® location and request an appointment with an Apple Auto Glass® technician to repair or replace your vehicle glass. The information on this website should in no way be considered to be instructions allowing you to repair or replace your vehicle glass by yourself. The general terms and conditions for repairs which appear below are for general information purposes only and are not intended to govern your use of this website. They do apply, however, to all repairs and replacements done by Apple Auto Glass® franchise locations.
When you call our authorized franchisee representative, you will be given a free detailed estimate of the work to be done on your vehicle, on the condition that you provide all the necessary information to establish the estimate. Apple Auto Glass® will not be bound by this estimate in the event of an error or omission concerning the features or condition of the vehicle.
If your insurance policy includes coverage for broken vehicle glass, the work done by Apple Auto Glass® will usually be covered by your insurance. You may only have to pay the deductible, if any, indicated in your policy, plus any related fees (such as travel costs, night, Sunday or holiday service) or cost of accessories (wipers, bulb covers, headlights, etc.) that are not covered by your insurance. We strongly advise that you check the details of your insurance policy to determine the extent of your broken vehicle glass coverage and the terms of payment. Calculation of the estimate described in paragraph 4 of these terms will be based on your insurance policy. Also, if you plan to have the work paid by your insurance, you will have to provide us with complete and accurate information about your insurance policy.
You are, and will remain, responsible for the manner and consequences of accessing this website. This access may involve payment of fees to technical service providers, such as internet service providers. These fees are your responsibility. In addition, you are and remain fully responsible for the provision and use of the equipment necessary to connect to this website.
If you transmit information to Apple Auto Glass®, you are responsible for its content and accuracy. You agree to provide full, accurate, up-to-date information in order to allow Apple Auto Glass® to provide you with the best service, and you are fully responsible for any consequences related to the provision of erroneous information about you, your insurance, your vehicle or your broken vehicle glass.

Updated April 18 2012
1.1 These general terms and conditions apply to the sale of all products (the "products") and all services (the "services") offered by Apple Auto Glass®.
1.2 Unless otherwise agreed, any order for a product or service implies the customer's full and entire adherence to these general terms and conditions.
1.3 The execution of all work is subject to prior signature of the estimate. This contractual document lists the work to be performed and, if applicable, the existing defects on the vehicle at the time it was handed over to Apple Auto Glass®.
The invoice issued by Apple Auto Glass® functions as a subrogation in its favour granted by the insured customer for direct payment by the insurer. It also functions as a notice of loss by the insured customer to the insurer. Apple Auto Glass® remains a third party in the contractual relationship between the customer and the insurer. As such, it is not authorized to advise the customer on the notice of loss, for which the customer is wholly responsible. The customer is encouraged to approach the insurer concerning any questions about the insurance policy.
The customer may obtain, free of charge, by telephone, a detailed estimate of the services required for the vehicle. Apple Auto Glass® shall not be bound by this estimate in the event of errors or omissions on the part of the customer concerning the features or condition of the vehicle.
4.1 Except in estimates issued by Apple Auto Glass®, prices are based on rates in effect at the time the vehicle is brought in for service. If during the course of the repairs additional services are deemed necessary, Apple Auto Glass® will immediately inform the customer in order to obtain his or her agreement before completing the repairs. The customer will likewise be informed if the time quoted for repairs must be changed due to specific features of the vehicle.
4.2 Unless otherwise agreed, the products and services are payable in cash, on delivery of the products or when the customer collects the vehicle, as appropriate. The customer can only collect the vehicle after full payment of all amounts due, in principal and incidentals, to Apple Auto Glass®.
5.1 Apple Auto Glass® reserves the right to refuse to carry out any work that cannot be executed in accordance with the customs of the trade.
5.2 As plastic does not provide protection against the weather and flying gravel, the customer is encouraged to replace any broken vehicle glass as quickly as possible.
5.3 Unless otherwise agreed, the transfer of risk occurs when the keys to the vehicle are exchanged. However, Apple Auto Glass® declines all responsibility for the loss, deterioration or theft of objects in the vehicle or the vehicle, with the exclusion of the equipment and accessories incorporated into the vehicle and objects left by the customer at the customer service desk of the service centre.
6.1 It is up to the customer to verify that the appropriate services were received before accepting possession of the vehicle at the service centre.
6.2 All claims must be made to Customer Service, by phone at 1-800 267 6105 or in writing at the following address: Apple Auto Glass® – Customer Service, 7111 Kennedy Road, Unit 4, Mississauga, ON, L5S 0A4.
7.1 Unless otherwise agreed, the vehicle must be collected by the customer at the time indicated on the estimate or at the latest at closing time of the service centre on that day. Otherwise Apple Auto Glass® may park the vehicle outside of the service centre at the customer's sole risk. The transfer of risk shall be deemed to take place at the closing time of the service centre on the day agreed, and Apple Auto Glass® will not incur any liability in the event of any theft or damage suffered by the vehicle. Furthermore, after 48 hours, Apple Auto Glass® may ask the authorities to impound the vehicle, at the customer's risk and expense.
The transfer of ownership of the products shall occur on the full payment of the sale price and, if applicable, any incidentals and interest. In the absence of timely payment, Apple Auto Glass® may reclaim the products at the customer's risk and expense and, except in the case of a customer consumer, any prior payments will be kept by Apple Auto Glass® by way of penalty.
10.1 Service warranty:
10.1.1 Repairs and replacements carried out by Apple Auto Glass® are guaranteed for life against defects resulting from a defective seal, poorly attached hubcap, leak, whistling or crack resulting from a repaired impact, during or after the provision of service. This warranty can only be activated by the presentation of the invoice for the contested service or the attestation of warranty issued by Apple Auto Glass® and shall otherwise be declared ineligible.
10.1.2 The warranty is excepted:
10.1.3 The warranty thus granted is strictly limited to:
10.1.4 In all cases, Apple Auto Glass® reserves the option, especially in the event of the unavailability of a product, to limit the warranty to the reimbursement of the installation and the product damaged through defective installation or repair, to the exclusion of any other compensation. Such reimbursement shall be based on the price of the services or damaged products on the invoice initially issued by Apple Auto Glass®.
10.2 Product warranty
10.2.1 Products are guaranteed for one year from the time of delivery against all manufacturing defects reported in writing to Apple Auto Glass®. No warranty shall be granted for normal use or corrosion, abnormal use of the products, deterioration resulting from an accident, negligence, failure to upkeep or maintain, caused by a third party or, more generally, resulting from an event beyond the control of Apple Auto Glass®.
10.2.2 This warranty is strictly limited, at the sole discretion of Apple Auto Glass®, to the replacement or reimbursement of the product recognized as defective, within the limit of the amount actually paid to Apple Auto Glass® for this product. This compensation is exclusive of any other compensation whatsoever.
10.3 Insofar as the sale of the products is subject to the provisions of the Consumer Protection Act either in view of its object or the status of the customer, it is further stipulated that these provisions cannot deprive the customer of the legal guarantees provided for under this Act.
Personal data received from the customer is required to provide services, issue invoices and, if applicable, have costs covered by the customer's vehicle glass insurance. This information (except for bank card numbers) is processed by computer and transmitted to the appropriate Apple Auto Glass® franchisee location. The customer agrees for this data to be used and kept by Apple Auto Glass® and its service providers and subcontractors for administrative purposes, in order to generate statistical reports, conduct satisfaction surveys for the purpose of improving the quality of its services, and carry out marketing operations. To the extent permitted by law, the customer has the right to access and correct his or her personal data. This right can be exercised by contacting customer service at the number or address listed above.
In the event that a dispute cannot be amicably resolved, the dispute will be submitted exclusively to the court of competent jurisdiction in the District of Ontario, Province of Ontario. However, if the customer is a consumer who is not acting in a professional capacity, the rules of legal competency shall apply.
