As a motorist in Southend, Shoeburyness or any other part of Essex, it may seem obvious enough to you why it is so important to maintain your car’s windscreen in perfect condition. It is, after all, integral to the shell of your vehicle, and gives you the clear view of the road required in order to drive safely.
However, all too many vehicle owners initially ignore windscreen chips when they appear, and this is a major mistake. Not only is a chipped windscreen a practical hindrance, making it harder for you to see the road, but that chip can also quickly turn into a bigger crack – all it might take for this to happen is a bump in the road or a sudden change in temperature.
Furthermore, windscreen damage is a common reason for a car failing its MOT – again, due to the adverse impact this has on visibility behind the wheel. You can probably begin to see, then, why the services of our experts in windscreen repair in Southend can be so crucial.

Repairs Advice & FAQ
Below, we have detailed answers to some of the most common questions we receive about car repairs undertaken at our Southend-on-Sea garage.
For further advice and guidance in relation to your own servicing and repair needs as an Essex motorist, please feel free to call our friendly and professional team on 01702 612472.
We are a small, family-owned business with a strong emphasis on serving the local community – and this very much extends to car repairs for those living in and around Southend-on-Sea, Essex.
Our high level of knowhow in car repairs covers such key components as your vehicle’s brakes, batteries, windscreen, steering and suspension. However, we are equally well-known for the trusting and lasting relationships that we build with our customers, and our commitment to much more affordable prices than are often on offer from main dealers.
If you’re considering requesting repair work to your car from us rather than a main dealer, you may be concerned about the potential consequences of this for your car’s warranty.
The good news in this regard is that the European Union (EU)’s Block Exemption Regulation has long given motorists the freedom to choose exactly where to have their vehicle serviced or repaired, without having to worry about their warranty being invalidated.
Crucial to this here at Reynolds RMGMOT in Southend is our use of only main dealer parts or parts of Original Equipment (OE) standard. This policy protects your warranty, and gives you the peace of mind of knowing that when you have your car repaired by us, the parts and service will be of at least the same quality as you would be able to expect from a main dealer.
In fact, we take pride in often going beyond even the manufacturers’ recommendations when it comes to car repairs. Choosing us also allows you to avoid long dealer waiting lists and nasty additional costs; we always present quotes upfront for repair work that we propose to carry out, and will only proceed with your approval.
When it comes to all things windscreen repair or replacement in Southend, choose us
Unfortunately, it’s also possible that the nature of the damage to your windscreen – for example, an especially long and deep crack – may prevent us from undertaking repair to your existing windscreen. In such situations, the entire windscreen may need to be replaced, potentially leaving you with a costly excess fee to pay on your car insurance.
Nonetheless, if you do indeed require complete windscreen replacement in Southend or Shoeburyness, you can count on our professionals here at Reynolds RMGMOT doing the job to an impeccable standard. But as a small, independent and locally-oriented garage, we are also known for our highly competitive prices, including for windscreen replacement work.
