What to do if you find a crack in your car's windscreen

If you find a crack in your windscreen, please let us know as soon as possible. These cases are usually quick and easy to resolve, but it's important to get it fixed quickly as it could pose a roadworthiness issue for your car.

To speed up the process, please follow these steps as soon as you notice the crack:

  1. Take clear photos of the crack - take at least one close up photo showing the extent of the damage and another taken from a short distance showing the exact location of the crack
  2. Report the damage to us - email the photos to members@carnextdoor.com.au along with the following information:
    - Is the crack in the field of vision?
    - Do you think this crack is due to wear and tear, or damage caused by a borrower?
    - When did you last see your car without the crack in the windscreen?
  3. We'll investigate and determine who is responsible
  4. To speed up the repair process, you can get a quote yourself. Check the Useful Contacts section for mobile windscreen repairers, or use your preferred repairer.
  5. Send the quote to us - we'll review it and authorise the repairs
  6. If our investigation finds that a borrower is liable for the damage, we'll reimburse you for the repairs and compensate you for your time spent on the issue
  7. If our investigation finds that the damage occurred outside of a borrower's booking, you'll need to cover the repair cost yourself (windscreen repairs are typically cheaper than your $500 Damage Cover Liability - if your quote is higher than $500 we'll need to authorise the repairs before they're completed)
