Volvo UK Offers Free Windscreen Chips & Puncture Fixes

This complimentary service is offered to all owners of Volvo cars, regardless of vintage. 

In an industry-first move, Volvo UK has recently announced that has launched a service to fix windscreen chips and punctures incurred by owners of its cars for free. A service that extends to all of its models regardless of age, the Swedish automaker claims for this newly launched service is to help ‘cut the inconvenienced caused’ from damage inflicted through driving on ‘rough and worn-out road surfaces’. 

All owners have to do in order to take advantage of this service offered is to simply take their car to any UK Volvo retailer for the damage to be inspected to see whether the repair is safe and possible to be made. If a repair is possible, which Volvo claims will be the case in most instances, the repair will then be made while the customer waits, with the manufacturer reiterating once again that there will be no charge borne by the customer. 

If the damage is not repairable though, the retailer will then advise the customer and, if they so wish, arrange for a replacement tyre or windscreen to be fitted.

Touted as a simple and convenient service that comes with the peace of mind that the work done has been carried out by qualified technicians, this new service being offered here is a rather good move by Volvo. Particularly when considering that the Swedish marque has always been one closely associated with safety after all.

Unfortunately however, it looks as if that this free service is unfortunately only currently limited to Volvo UK, with no word yet on whether it will making its way over here to Malaysia. A shame then, as UK isn’t the only place where damage from terrible road conditions is common.

PRESS RELEASE: Rough and worn-out road surfaces are making punctured tyres and stone-chipped windscreens all too common hazards for UK motorists. Volvo Car UK is helping cut the inconvenience caused with an industry-first free repair service covering both windscreen and tyre damage.

Where viable, Volvo retailers will provide a free puncture or windscreen chip repair on Volvo cars of any age, helping to get owners safely back on the road again as soon as possible.

The process is simple, convenient and comes with the peace of mind of work carried out by qualified Volvo technicians. Owners can take their car to any UK Volvo retailer, where the damage will be checked to determine whether a repair is safe and possible. In most instances, a repair can be made on the spot, while the customer waits, with no charge.

If the damage is not repairable, the retailer will advise the customer and, if they wish, arrange for a new tyre or windscreen to be fitted.

Kristian Elvefors, Volvo Car UK Managing Director, said: “As well as reducing the nuisance factor of minor damage, this new service helps keep cars in safe condition and, in the case of windscreens, can prevent chips leading to cracks and more costly replacements. We value all Volvo drivers, no matter how old their car might be, and this new service is the perfect way to help them stay safe, secure and mobile.”
