A chip in the windscreen can be a pain in the bum! You know that you need to get it fixed before it cracks and gets worse, but when do you have the time to check into a garage, get a quote and book in for the job to be done? Rarely, is the answer.
We all lead busy lives, squeezing in leisure time around work and family obligations, and our car often plays a crucial role in our daily activities. So, when what seems like a small chip appears on our car windscreen, we can be tempted to leave it alone.
Before you know it, that chip becomes a crack, which spreads until repair is no longer an option and you are looking at the expense of replacing the entire windscreen.
This could cost you a fair few pennies, as windscreens are often not fully covered by car insurance. Not to mention the fact that if the chip is in your line of vision, you’ll be breaking the law, risking a fine and points on your licence, too.
On top of all this, windscreen damage is one of the top reasons for cars to fail their MOT. So there are lots of reasons to encourage you not to get distracted and attend to windscreen chips as soon as you spot them.
Luckily for you, MyCarNeedsA.com, has this week partnered up with AutoGlass parent company Belron Group, the world’s leading vehicle glass repair and replacement company.

They’ll bring a mobile bodyshop with them and, in most cases, have the work completed the same day. Simply attach a photo of the damage when you request a quote and AutoRestore will let you know what’s involved, as well as provide you with a competitive price.
