Damaged front windscreen - Mobile repairs save time

Minor damage to a front windscreen can have fatal consequences. It should be repaired as quickly as possible to prevent any greater damage. A mobile repair is often enough. Helvetia organises such repairs for its customers and they pay no deductible.

It’s a familiar scenario: even a tiny sharp stone is enough to damage a front windscreen. It may look harmless but it can have a big impact. 90% of all stone chips crack within three years. It is important to have an intact front windscreen, as this provides up to 30% of the stability of the vehicle’s bodywork. In other words, once the front windscreen shows signs of damage, it should be repaired or replaced as quickly as possible.

Repairs don’t involve much work

A damaged front windscreen can usually be repaired without much work. Thanks to modern technology, it is no longer necessary to replace the entire front windscreen. Often, a mobile repair carried out by a specialist is enough. The mobile repair saves a great deal of time but still guarantees the full stability of the front windscreen. A repair is also environmentally friendly, as the old windscreen doesn’t have to be recycled. Such repairs are, of course, recognised by the Department of Motor Vehicles.

 No deductible

Helvetia organises windscreen repairs or the replacement of front windscreens for its customers. In consequence, they pay no deductible, and the claim has no impact on their bonus level. What is particularly practical is the fact that customers determine the time and location of the repair. So it is no problem to have the repair carried out at their home.
