Can my car fail an MOT because of the windscreen?

Yes, your car can fail it’s MOT if there is a crack larger than 1.5cm. As your windscreen is crucial to a drivers visibility any crack or chip can be a cause of a failed MOT test.

Which means you will need to get a windscreen chip repaired before an MOT assessment.

How do I schedule my mobile replacement?

Our mobile technicians will call you the day of the replacement to confirm your 2 hour time slot, and will also notify you approximately 30 minutes prior to arrival. 

How effective is a windscreen chip repair?

Our technicians use the latest technology and equipment to repair windscreen chips, and the results are pretty impressive. The repair is barely noticeable, however from time to time a very small smudge or stain may be visible. 

Can you fix my windscreen if my car has ADAS?

Yes. Our technicians are capable of calibrating ADAS windscreens after a replacement. In some cases, it might be necessary to travel to our nearest repair centre to complete the replacement, as special equipment may be required to carry out the calibration.

Do I need to provide anything for the replacement to be carried out?

Once our technicians have access to your vehicle and an area to complete the work, you’re all set! 

I’m not sure what brand my car is?

You can usually find out what brand or model your car is by reading the logo on the front or rear bumper of the car. Sometimes you can find this on the steering wheel also. You can enter your registration number and we’ll be able to identify the make and model of your vehicle. 

How do I reschedule an appointment?

In the event of bad weather conditions such as rain or strong wind, we may need to reschedule the appointment. But don’t worry, we’ll get in touch and keep you informed. If for any reason you are unable to provide access to the vehicle or need to move the appointment to another day, please reach out and let us know and we can repair your car window at a time that best suits you! 🙂 

How do I know if my windscreen has a rain sensor?

While filling out the webform, we’ll ask you if your vehicle has a rain sensor. But if you’re unsure, don’t worry – we’ll provide you with the help and information you need to find out! We’re here to help. 🙂

To check if your windscreen has a rain sensor, look from the outside of the windscreen to see if there is a sensor located behind the rear view mirror. Check out the image below to see what it might look like. If your wipers begin to work automatically when it starts to rain, then this is also an indication that your windscreen has a built in rain sensor.

Is there a range of different prices when choosing a windscreen?

There sure is! After completing the webform and providing all the necessary info, we’ll provide a range of options for you to choose from. Then all you have to do is choose the option with the price that is best for you.

Is my replacement covered under a warranty?

Windscreen Cover

All of our car glass replacements come with a lifetime guarantee on the workmanship, as long as you still own the vehicle. However there are some limits to our guarantee. 

In the event that a chip develops into a crack while the technician is attempting to carry out the repair, this will result in the repair no longer being possible and a full windscreen replacement needed instead. If this occurs, the customer will be expected to pay the additional fee required to complete the windscreen replacement.

Windscreen Wipers

All windscreen wipers supplied and fitted by our technicians are covered under a 12 month guarantee. This guarantee applies solely to faults associated with material and manufacturing. 

ADAS Systems

Any calibration of ADAS systems will be carried out accurately and appropriately at the time of installation and will not be covered under our guarantee.

How long does its take to replace a car window?

We provide our customers with a 2 hour time slot within which our technicians will arrive. We will call to confirm this slot, and also call you 30 mins prior to arrival. Once there, it rarely takes more than an hour to replace the car window and get the job done. 🙂 

Do I have to pay extra once the replacement has been carried out?

Nope! No extras and no hidden costs. You’ll pay the exact same price you receive in your quotation and that’s it. If there happens to be a pricing error and the price needs to be changed, we’ll be sure to make you aware of this. You can then choose to accept the updated price or cancel the job at no extra cost. 


As long as the work performed is equal to that in the quote received, you will not have to pay any additional fees. However, in some cases, the rubber moulding around the windscreen may not be in suitable condition for the technician to safely and effectively complete the car glass replacement and therefore will need to be replaced also. If the rubber moulding does need to be replaced, this usually costs approximately £30-£40. 

Arranging a time and date

We’ll ask you to select a time and date that best suits you when you’re filling out our Windscreen Compare webform. If the parts are in stock then we can offer a same day service if booked in before 1pm. Otherwise, the best value option will be available and this will take place at a later date. Usually, we’ll be able to accommodate your preferences, but we’ll always call to confirm the day and a 2 hour time slot, and also call you 30-60 minutes prior to arrival on the day.


How long do windscreen replacements usually take?

Our mobile replacement service operates during normal working hours from 8am to 5pm. Our technicians will call you to confirm your 2 hour time slot. Once your time slot is confirmed, you will also receive a call approximately 30 minutes prior to arrival. Majority of mobile windscreen replacements will be completed in less than an hour, however please be aware that all cars must remain stationary for a minimum of 30 minutes after the car glass replacement to ensure no damage is caused before the repair is completely set.

Can a windscreen chip be repaired?

Some chips can be repaired and will not require a full replacement. Once the chip is smaller than the size of a one pound coin and sits more than 5-6cm from the edge of the windscreen, it’s likely our technicians will be able to carry out a car glass repair. If you’re unsure whether or not you need a repair or a full replacement, get in touch with us and send us a photo of the chip. We’ll be able to provide you with a free consultation and advise what solution is needed.

Of course! Our technicians offer a complete service, meaning you can use our mobile service to repair or replace any glass from your car, including side windows and rear windscreens! 

Do I really need to repair windscreen cracks?

At first, a small windscreen crack may not seem so bad. However, even the smallest of cracks can quickly go from bad to worse! If the crack spreads it might mean that you will require a complete replacement rather than a simple repair. Fluctuations in temperature or hitting rough terrain while driving which causes the car to bump and jolt are two of the major reasons for cracks spreading and becoming much worse. This is why it is so important to repair any chips or cracks ASAP, to ensure your safety while driving and also save yourself time and money in the future. We recommend placing some tape or a small sticker over the crack/chip until you get it repaired. This will keep the damage clean and dry and help prevent it from getting any worse until you get it fixed.

What is ADAS?

ADAS – Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, is based on Artificial Intelligence and is integrated into the vehicle to provide a safer driving experience. This extremely advanced technology can be used to automatically make drivers aware of and protect them from situations such as oncoming collisions, unsafe changing of lanes, low tyre pressure and can even help with parking! The technology can alter the vehicle speed and direction to avoid harmful situations. 

Can a damaged windscreen affect my MOT?

Yes. To pass the MOT, there cannot be a chip any bigger than 1cm within the drivers view. Any chips or cracks will make it harder to pass the MOT, with a chip or crack anywhere on the windscreen that is larger than 4cm nearly always resulting in an automatic fail.

How can I tell if my car glass has a colour tone?

When it comes to glass replacment for cars, it comes as a surprise to most people that over 90% of windscreens do in fact have a green colour tone. The easiest way to know for sure is to hold a piece of white paper against the windscreen, and if it has a slight green/blue tint, then your windscreen has a colour tone. If your windscreen does have a colour tone, that means the rest of your car glass has a colour tone too.
