Windscreen replacements don't usually affect no claims bonus, you just have to pay the excess, best check with your insurers.

Have to agree, Wirral Spares, anything that couldn't be done through insurance went to them, cheapest for miles, and a good job too.

withthat

Also very tidy, minimum mess.

We get all our van screens replaced by Wirral spares and they done my Astra screen too, proper original with the blue sun visor band too, pretty sure it was 80.

All I can say is to read your policy very carefully, although it may not affect your no-claims discount it can still be used against you in other ways.

In the event of a windscreen replacement only claim, your No Claims Discount will not increase in the following year.

I echo that, I've used Borough Road three times. They're 60 - 90 quid fitted, and they do it that day. It also helps they're actually all nice, pleasant people working in there.
Auto Windscreens cracked a new screen putting it in, and didn't even seal it up. The crack spread in weeks, and water go in through the missing seal. Never again.

Also, adverts saying free chip repair. A chip can be repaired, but it won't spread, a crack can't be repaired and depending where it is, it will usually spread - you'll need a new screen if it's cracked.

Yup, they used it as an excuse to bump my mates premium up, said it was classed as a claim.

Whichever way you look at it your going to have to pay out the same so IMHO i would be paying wirral spares and leave insurance as it is. Less hassle
