How Much Does It Cost to Replace a Windscreen in Wollongong?
There is no fixed cost for replacing a windscreen in Wollongong, NSW. The age, make and model of your vehicle, the type of the damage, the type of glass you select, and whether you have insurance all affect the cost.
One of the first things to assess though, is whether a repair–rather than replacement–is possible.
Many types of windscreen chips and cracks can be safely repaired at a fraction of the cost of a new windscreen. And this applies to all vehicle types, from trucks, buses, and coaches, through to cars, luxury vehicles, utes, and vans.
Repair or Replace?
A number of factors determine whether a repair is possible. These include size, location, and even depth. Damage within the driver’s critical vision area (CVA), cracks that start or end on the edge of the windscreen, and any damage that extends deeper than the outer layer of glass cannot be repaired under any circumstances. Making a professional assessment critical.
Our Wollongong windscreen technicians can inspect windscreen damage onsite at our centrally located branch, or–thanks to our mobile service–at your home or workplace. If a repair is possible, they can do the work at once, getting you safely back on the road in no time at all. If a repair is not possible, they will be able to advise of the cost and time needed.
While we do keep a variety of windscreen sizes on hand, there is a chance your windscreen replacement will need to be ordered. But, knowing how any delay can be extremely inconvenient, we always endeavour to source replacements as quickly as possible. Especially since any damage that requires a windscreen replacement usually also means the vehicle isn’t safe to drive in the interim.
This is why our Wollongong team is also available 24/7 for emergency repairs and replacements.
How Long Does It Take to Replace a Windscreen?
Most windscreen replacements take 60 to 90 minutes to complete, with another hour required at the end to ensure everything has cured properly. However, if your vehicle is ADAS equipped, it is essential to also schedule an ADAS recalibration as required by the vehicle manufacturer. Our technicians will be able to advise on this, along with any added time requirements for the calibration to be completed.
Repairs take considerably less time to complete, making it a wise choice to have any cracks and chips in your windscreen taken care of as soon as they appear. This reduces the risk of your windscreen being damaged beyond repair by a crack or chip.
