    As a windscreen repair professional, I have to correct the advice from Autoglass regarding the distance from the edge of the windscreen. Autoglass may be unable to repair a chip that is closer to the edge than 6cm, but that does not mean it cannot be done. We can and do, on a regular basis repair chips within a few mms of the edge of the windscreen. As an independent windscreen chip repair company, we concentrate only on windscreen repairs rather than replacements. We aim to repair most chips in windscreens and aim to achieve a greater than 95% improvement of clarity. We will attempt a repair before advising a customer to replace the windscreen. Autoglass have a tight hold on the industry but you shouldn’t believe everything they say.

    I recently had a very small chip in my motorhome windscreen,on returning home I immediately contacted Autoglass.When they came to repair it after about 15 minutes the chap came to the door and said as the chip had spread it could not be repaired.I have never had this problem before and wondered if this is how they offset some of their costs

    I have a big American RV with two separate windscreens and the passenger side has a big crack. Will it pass an MOT? Been quoted £1700 for a replacement so I hope so.

    Does this cover as a far a field as travelling to Turkey?

      Hi Richard
      Autoglass ® have 13 branches across Turkey providing coverage across most, if not all, of the country. If a customer needed a motorhome windscreen repair or replacement whilst in Turkey they would first need to call the Autoglass ® helpline (00 44 800 36 36 36) for assistance. In the unlikely event Autoglass ® could not assist, they would try to recommend a local reputable firm that could. If a customer’s motorhome windscreen was not repaired or replaced by Autoglass ® but by another company, we would advise them to keep receipts and these would then be sent to Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance Plc who would reimburse reasonable costs.

      Kind regards
