I know of autoglass but are there any other companies about? or is it just best to go with them?

prices are from 70+ vat to repair and as the window excess is 70 seems pointless to claim on that.

your insurance company will pay for the repair too, so it saves them having to buy a full new screen in the future

Same.

My windscreen is COVERED in loads of tiny chips but nothing major, I think I'll be taking a hammer to it when the weather improves

Should be covered on insurance.
I use glass doctors. Not sure if they are national though.
Have a look on google

Just booked it in with autoglass for tomorrow morning, not bothering to go through insurance unless they want an extortionate amount

glass doctors looked more expensive than autoglass although there site makes no sense on the pricing guide lol

Autoglass wanted 80+ outta me last year to repair a chip in my windscreen. Didn't have FC so couldn't claim.
Ended up having to getta new windscreen due to the placement of the chip as it was right in my line of sight and would fail the MOT.

well went through the online bit with autoglass and they gve me a call back to confirm details/insurance details and as they arent admirals prefered repairer then she gave me admirals claims number (didnt tell me it was to admiral themselves) anyway all going through them now after a quick scan of my documents it doesnt show anythin about it affecting ncb but suppose ill find that out at renewal time

I work for autowindscreens we charge 40+vat for repairs but if you go through insurance it doesn't effect you at all.

I had a chip repaired through swiftcover and it was free BUT come renewal time It appeared as a claim and my premium went up

If I claim for a full screen from them, they freeze my NCB so I'd lose that years
