    Default windscreen fitting costs?

    if I wanted to change my windscreen and not use the insurance company, how much does windscreen fitting cost on one of our cars?

    that includes the screen right? What about just fitting cost etc, i.e. removal of old windscreen and fitting of replacement screen i will source myself?

    Thats inc the screen yes.

    Not many places will fit secondhand bonded screens anymore as they regs were tightened due to it being a structural part of the car.

    Could allways give them a ring if its a cash job

    Why not go through the insurance ? Surely your excess is only £70-100 ?

    where would you get your screen from ? As some installers may refuse to garantee screens they don't supply.

    Default

    As above, phone two or three windscreen fitters and see what they charge for a supplied windscreen
    I have to agree though, they may refuse as it has to be supplied
    However, they may request you sign a disclaimer that in the event of damage they will not be liable

    Windscreen fitters often visit dealerships and fit supplied windscreens, so I don't see why they shouldn't do so

    Can you confirm the windscreen still has its OEM cover?
    If you take the car and windscreen to them, I would expect to pay about £50

    thats kinda what figured.. I have genuine oem screen to go in not one of the crap ones that the big chains supply and lie about. As you say a fitter will go to a dealership to fit a delearship supplied screen so I see no issue in fitting a genuine screen that i supply..

    I have a few numbers for some local indys but everybody seems to be on holiday and besides there is no hurry..

    Yes, this can be an issue if you have a cracked windscreen at this time of year
    Hence why the excess applies, as this can also be used to arrange recovery of the damaged car and a hire car, until the windscreen can be replaced
