As you may already know, a small chip or crack in your motorhome windscreen can easily worsen if it isn’t fixed, leading to the windscreen needing to be replaced.
However, a quick and simple repair from a company such as AutoGlass can make the windscreen good as new. A repair can also sidestep the risk of having to make a claim on your motorhome insurance policy to replace the windscreen.
If you’re an existing Caravan Guard motorhome insurance customer and notice a chip or crack in your windscreen then you should call our dedicated windscreen helpline number on 01422 501 092 (Outside the UK: 0044 1422 501 092), and we’ll get your motorhome repaired as quickly as possible, completely free of charge, and with no reduction to your no claims discount.
Louise Farrar, Caravan Guard’s Claims Liaison Manager, explains why fixing a chip quickly is so important.
“Repairing a chip will not cost you your excess and will be a quicker process than replacing the whole windscreen. It’s important to act fast as something like a pot-hole can jar the motorhome enough to cause a chip to turn into a bigger crack, which may not be repairable.”
If your glass has to be replaced the excess noted on your policy schedule will need to be paid, however, windscreen claims do not affect your no claims discount.
Windscreen claims can be reported over the telephone and when making a claim for damage to your motorhome’s windscreen or windows you won’t even have to complete a claims form. You will be put straight through to Autoglass, RSA’s approved glass repairer and they will arrange for a technician to attend your vehicle.
