our story
Fred Beck began his auto glass journey in 1978. Shortly after, his brother Merle Beck joined the team and they began Broco Auto Glass (Brothers & Company) which went on to become one of the largest auto glass companies in BC at the time. After several years of learning the flat glass industry the Beck brothers realized there was a need to help homeowners with the high cost of glass. In 2000 they developed a service contract for home & business owners to purchase to protect their most valuable assets. The first online portal with leading technology was introduced, and Broco Glass Network was created. In 2012 Broco Auto Glass was sold to Belron and the flat glass division started operating as Beck Glass & Shield. In 2014 FICOM & the Insurance Council decided these glass contracts were apples to apples to an insurance product. Of the existing 43 companies offering glass contracts; Beck Glass was one of only two companies that took on the responsibility to form an MGA. Beck Glass Shield became licensed with the insurance council and partnered with Trisura as our underwriter, making us 100% compliant with BCFSA (previously FICOM) and the Insurance Council of BC. Today Beck Glass Shield is proud to be licensed across Canada in all the provinces (excluding Quebec) providing Canadians across the nation with glass insurance.

"I have always enjoyed knowing my business is protected by a Beck Glass policy. After having a claim with them I would never go without it again. I woke up at midnight to a call from the RCMP while on holiday in Mexico, someone had broken through the glass door at my business. By the time the alarm company had reached my other employees there was a technician on his way to my location. It was boarded up and secured so quickly that I was able to enjoy the rest of my vacation without worry. I can not recommend them enough! I tell everyone that they shouldn’t go without it. "
- Alicia P.

“We have a Beck Glass Shield commercial glass policy and when we had a broken commercial door glass, we made the call to Beck. A technician came knocking on our door within a couple hours, announced themselves and went about doing the repair. After they finished the replacement, they knocked on our door again and they were done! They were polite, efficient and professional with their work and we are glad we have a Beck Glass Insurance policy to rely on.”

"A huge branch fell on our skylight and broke it, thankfully, we had insurance with Beck Glass Shield. I called them and the workers were at our place within a couple of hours. They removed the broken glass, covered the opening, measured everything and as soon as the glass arrived, they came back and installed it. The team was very professional and did a great job. This is the best insurance company I’ve ever had to deal with, and it is very affordable. The agent was very understanding, polite, and efficient. We couldn't wish for a better service!"
