Driving down fleet costs

Our repair-first philosophy not only helps reduce fleet costs, but it is better for the environment, improving the green credentials of fleet customers.

Autoglass® works in partnership with its fleet partners to drive down the real cost of glass, offering a proactive fleet check service to identify repairable damage before chips crack and the repair develops into a costly replacement. There is no better time to have a fleet check carried out than in the winter; the wet, icy conditions can hide chips on a windscreen that can crack at any time, especially in cold weather.

So whether it’s a smashed side glass which needs replacing late at night, or a chipped windscreen which needs to be repaired to avoid the cost of a replacement, the service from Autoglass® is designed to meet fleet requirements.

Exclusive fleet discounts

Business fleets can set up their own trade account with Autoglass® if glass is not covered through insurance or with a lease company.

These customers will receive exclusive discounts, as well as a dedicated regional business manager to understand the needs of their business.

We offer a variety of tailored billing solutions, including split invoicing and 30-day payment terms, all of which are designed to meet a company’s individual needs and reduce administration costs.
