    Hi all

    Just had my windscreen go on Fiat Ducato 2009. Anybody replaced the screen paying for it themselves and not claiming through insurance. If so what is the going rate for the replacement

    I googled this myself late last year.
    Autoglass charged nearly £1000 to the insurance. Some indipendants were charging £300 ish

    That's cheap. Might be tricky getting to Kent with a broken windscreen though!

    I assume you will be getting it replaced by your insurers though !

    May I ask why you do not wish to claim on your insurance?
    It won't affect your no claims bonus and ypu'll only have to pay the excess - in our case that was £100.

    I think my excess is the cost of the windscreen plus fitting :Eeek:

    Windscreen excess is normally around £100 even if your main cover excess is more.

    Normally windscreen excess will not affect future premiums.

    Worth calling your insurer before doing anything about replacing it yourself.

    My glass excess is set at £100.

    VERY happy with that as a new HALF screen is probably in excess of £3000

    I don't know why insurance companies get into bed with autoglass unless they have shares? costs are outrageous and often fitting is poor too

    Thanks for the link to the Windscreen fitting service in Kent.

    My Son needs a new windscreen for his work van and the excess is far more than the cost of this.

    So thanks again as he was looking a sourcing one from a breakers and fitting it himself.

    We've all got to wonder how much Autoglass costs us, on the basis they are tied closely ( free indscreen repair ) to our insurers.

    I wonder if Shifty can tie in the directors of Autoglass and some of the big insurers !!!
