As you may already know, a small chip or crack 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, and side step the risk of having to make a claim on your motorhome insurance policy to replace the windscreen.
If you are 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 0800 0963 456 (this number goes directly through to our chosen repair partner AutoGlass), and we’ll get your motorhome repaired as quickly as possible, completely free of charge, and with no reduction in your insurance no claims bonus.
Teresa Eastwood, Caravan Guard’s Claims Liaison Manager, explains why fixing a chip quickly is so important.
“If you catch a chip early and get it fixed it doesn’t cost you a penny, and you won’t lose your no claims bonus. 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.”
When making a claim for damage to your motorhome’s windscreen or windows you won’t even have to complete a claims form. If the windscreen is beyond repair and needs to be replaced you will only pay the windscreen replacement excess of £100, and providing the claim is less than £1000 your no claims bonus still won’t be effected.
