These guys are the best – they’ve got a can-do attitude and they’re about great customer service rather than extracting as much money out of you as possible. Don’t bother with the others.

I saw this post the other week and listened to other Canberra’s advice and tried Aussie windscreens in Phillip and all i can say is they were amazing.

Friendly young blokes did it cheeper then all the other business i called and did it in no time at all and i can not fault the work at all. would go back there in a heartbeat.

+1 for Aussie windscreens in Woden. Got a quote for a Kia Rio from O’Brian’s, mid $400s for replacement. Quote from Aussie’s after seeing it on here, mid $200s. Called to cancel O’Brian’s and they ended up coming down to match the quote – but only after a lecture about avoiding ‘outfits operating out of the back of their cars’. Isn’t that exactly what they are doing? Aussie’s were quick, no hassle and affordable. Would happily recommend.

I had one replaced at
Aussie Windscreens
22 Grenville Court, Phillip ACT 2606
(02) 6282 0066 ?

and would go back to them in a heartbeat. Professional, friendly and a good price. It was going to cost me more to fill a few stone chips with obrians than get the whole thing replaced with them.

Call Terry at Instant Windscreens, Geelong St Fyshwick

A few weeks ago I went to O’Brien Glass in Fyshwick to replace the front screen of my car (Has IR-transparent area and a rain-sensor).

Net result: They replaced the screen. It works.

If I had anything negative to say it’s that the screen needs a grease-cutting clean and coating with Rainex now (I’ll have to have to have a word with the chauffeur about that)!

We recently used O’ Briens. They were really helpful especially when we were 3 hours away from home. Came when they said, did the job. Was an insurance job on a leased car so no idea what it would actually have cost but was advised about $700 would probably have covered it. That was for a Golf.

O’Briens are usually dear. I’ve found Capital Windscreens in Queanbeyan to be reasonable.

Ive had a couple done by Instant Windscreens in Fyshwick with satisfactory results. Much cheaper than the big chains too. Both times I took my car to them rather than pay them to come to me.
