You’re driving along the road when a lorry wheel flicks up a stone which hits your windscreen and causes a chip. Frustrating, we know…but our windscreen partner Auto Windscreens is here to tell you why it’s best to get it repaired as soon as possible.
Chips are cheaper
The insurance excess for a windscreen repair is cheaper than a replacement, which might be required if a chip is left and turns into a crack as cold temperatures cause glass to expand and contract.
Windscreen repairs are much quicker than windscreen replacements, so you’ll be back on the road in no time. There’s no need to order new glass and the actual appointment only takes 45 minutes.
Think of the environment
While Auto Windscreens does recycle 100% of glass removed from vehicles, a repair results in far less other waste – from chemical waste to, believe it not, cotton buds!
Just as safe
You might think it’s better to have a windscreen replaced to make sure your car is safe, but once a chip is repaired, the glass is just as strong and secure as before.
Winter glass care
While we know windscreen damage is often unavoidable, here are a few tips to protect your car’s glass this season:
