Question

Can I sell a car if a windshield replacement claim hasn't been completed yet?

A rock hit the windshield. I made a claim for replacement. The very next day a friend offered to buy my vehicle. I now want to sell it, but the windshield isn't scheduled to be fixed for three more days.

Thanks for the question. I would not sell the vehicle while the claim is still open. A payout will have to be in the titled owner's name. By transferring ownership, you will likely be adding a lot of extra steps to getting the vehicle fixed. It's not that the claim would never get paid, but if it's not an emergency, I would hold off for a few days to sell it.
