We will assess any minor windscreen damage first to see if a Smith&Smith® repair is possible but sometimes the damage is too large to fix and we will recommend the whole windscreen should be replaced.

We use only quality glass that’s compliant with New Zealand and international standards – meaning you drive away knowing the job has been done right.
The important role your windscreen plays in the safety of your vehicle
Your windscreen plays a vital role in the safety of your vehicle as it provides up to 30% of the vehicle's structural strength and the airbag on the passenger side relies on support from the windscreen once the airbag is activated.
Vehicle manufacturers often recommend that cameras used by safety systems such as lane departure warnings and automated braking are calibrated after a windscreen replacement to continue to work properly.
So hiring a trained specialist to fix your windscreen is essential. Learn more about our workmanship guarantee.
Why do I need an expert?
Whatever the situation, it’s important to choose an expert as not repairing or replacing your windscreen properly may mean some of the safety features that rely on the windscreen don’t work correctly.
Did you know that if your windscreen replacement isn’t carried out properly:
- Your passenger airbag may not work properly in an accident
- Your windscreen safety camera could be misaligned
- You could get a whistling or rattling noise whilst driving
- Your windscreen may not be water tight
