At Autoglass®, we always first try to repair your existing windscreen before replacing it with a new one, usually saving you both time and money.
Sometimes though, the type, size and position of the damage will mean that the whole windscreen needs to be replaced.
The price of the work carried out will therefore depend on two key factors:
- Whether we can repair your existing windscreen or whether it will need to be replaced with a new one
- Whether your vehicle insurance provides cover for glass damage
|Your existing windscreen can be repaired||This will usually be FREE of charge as in most cases it is paid for by your insurance company and normally won't affect your no claims bonus.|
|Your existing windscreen needs to be replaced||This will usually be covered by your insurance company. You will have to pay your insurance excess (as detailed in your policy) but it normally won't affect your no claims bonus.|
|Your existing windscreen can be repaired||We'll be pleased to give you a quote if you contact us|
|Your existing windscreen needs to be replaced||This will depend upon the type of windscreen that needs replacing.|
Repair or replace?
Take a quick look at our simple guide to whether it will be possible to repair your existing windscreen or whether it will need to be replaced.
We even take care of all your insurance paperwork
We work closely with most of the UK's major insurance companies so when you need our help all you have to do is book a windscreen repair or windscreen replacement appointment online and we can take care of your insurance claim for you. If there's anything for you to pay for your windscreen repair, you don't even need to contact your insurance company - we can collect the payment from you direct.
PLEASE NOTE however that we rely upon you, the customer, to confirm details of your vehicle glass cover. If you're unsure, we can - at your request - contact your insurance company on your behalf to confirm that you have glass cover (along with your excess if any), get their approval to carry out the work and, as appropriate, take care of all the paperwork involved.
If your insurance does not provide glass cover
The first thing to say is relax - even if you are not covered by your insurance for vehicle glass damage, Autoglass® can still help you. For a quote, either call us on 0844 875 2490 or book an appointment online today.
