Auto Windscreens has made it even easier for drivers to book a glass repair or replacement for their vehicle following the launch of its new website -www.autowindscreens.co.uk.

Showcasing the company's new brand identity, the website features a whole new look.

It is designed to be as user-friendly as possible. It is quick to upload, easy to navigate and informative. The new website represents the first phase in Auto Windscreens' online development featuring the new brand; with phase two expected early 2009.

The website also has an improved online booking facility which enables customers to identify whether their windscreen damage can be inexpensively repaired rather than replaced as well as book an appointment.

Also featuring regularly updated industry news and a ‘Handy Hints and Tips' section, the site also carries information which could help motorists avoid falling foul of the law!

Commenting on the new website Auto Windscreens Managing Director Abu-Haris Shafi said: "The Internet is a hugely valuable sales tool. *Sixty five per cent of households in Great Britain have Internet access so the value of having a fully functional website cannot be underestimated by any business.

"As Auto Windscreens has relationships with most major insurers and fleet companies, our new website will provide a user-friendly one-stop-shop for virtually every motorists' automotive glazing needs."

For customers who wish to speak to a knowledgeable operator, Auto Windscreens operates a 24 hour, seven days a week freephone number (0800 999 8000) direct to a UK-based contact centre. When booking, customers can either choose to visit one of Auto Windscreens' national network of fitting centres or arrange for a mobile technician to visit them at their home or work.
