Stone Chip Repair
Smith&Smith® can repair a windscreen chip at a time convenient for you, and often free of charge if you have full glass insurance cover. Click on one of the key reasons listed below to see why it's a good idea to repair a windscreen chip as soon as you spot it.
Why repair a chip?
A chip can crack at any time
A windscreen chip could turn into a crack at any time, often when you are least expecting it. If this happens when you are driving, it could significantly impair visibility of the road ahead.
Your windscreen provides up to 30% of your vehicle’s structural strength and the passenger airbag relies on the windscreen to provide support if the airbag deploys. Repairing a windscreen chip will make your windscreen strong again.
It only takes about 30 minutes
Repairing a chip is quicker than replacing a whole windscreen. A windscreen chip can be repaired in about 30 minutes.
You can get your chip repaired at one of our nationwide Smith&Smith® branches or by requesting one of our technicians to visit you - at home, at work or wherever you are.
A chip repair is normally free and usually won't affect a no claims bonus if you have full vehicle insurance including cover for glass damage, Smith&Smith® can usually repair your windscreen for free.
What’s more, your chip repair usually won’t affect any no claims bonus that you may have.
Reduce the risk of failing a WOF
If a windscreen chip is in the driver's line of vision, it only has to be bigger than 15mm for your windscreen to fail its Warrant of Fitness check, making it important to repair a chipped windscreen as soon as possible.
Repair is hassle free
If you are claiming your chip repair on your vehicle insurance, Smith&Smith® can help you with your claim, meaning you may not have to deal with your insurance company at all. Simply contact Smith&Smith® first and we’ll help you manage your paperwork.
If there's anything for you to pay, you still don't need to contact your insurance company, as we are also able to collect the payment from you direct.
