Against my better judgement I recently got Autoglass to fix a small chip on the passenger side of my windscreen.
Nothing wrong with the service or the repair - in fact it was beyond reproach. What I couldn't work out is how this could be "free".
Now I know.
The adverts tell you it won't affect your no claim discount. What they don't tell you is that it counts as a claim on your insurance.
Mine went up by £200 as a result.
And I don't expect it will go down again any time soon.
So it is a scam.
Autoglass get x pounds from the Insurance company who then up your premium with no risk to themselves.
Don't do it.
By the way I have complained to the ASA, but I'm not holding my breath.
