Extended warranties are usually an extension to the expired factory’s warranty and play a similar but comprehensive role. A new car always comes with the original manufacturer’s warranty that is set to expire after a certain period and the mileage of the car. A used car on the other hand might or might not come with an attached warranty. These two cases require a solution, starting with the new car’s warranty that’s to expire soon and the used car that lacks a warranty. Extended warranties come in now to offer protection and security for the car since you don’t want to get disturbed along with regular repair costs. One can either opt to get it earlier before the factory’s warranty expires. This type of warranty can be purchased for the car despite its age or mileage.
Just like any other product out there, you should consider some factors first before purchasing the extended warranty for your car, and here is what you need to know.
1.Price of the extended warranty.
This is one very important aspect you start with before beginning the process of purchasing an extended warranty. Extended warranties prices vary according to the type of plan you want to purchase ranging from a basic to a more complex and comprehensive one. One can pick the warranty plan which matches his/her financial capabilities to avoid future inconveniences. In some cases, the price of the plan can be negotiated for thus getting it for a lower price than the normal. A-Protect Warranty Corporation is here to help you out. We have a wide range of plans which are affordable and earn extra security for your car.
- Extent of the coverage.
Before you purchase an extended warranty you should know what is covered and what is not. There are different plans for different parts of the car. The factory’s warranties are only limited to certain parts covered such as the bumper to bumper warranty and powertrain warranty. Extended warranties give more extensive coverage and limits. However, most extended warranties come in tiers such as silver, gold, and platinum each with certain given parts that are covered. Make it a habit of reading through the fine print to know what it covers and to what extent.
- Duration of the coverage.
When purchasing an extended warranty, you need to know how long the warranty is meant to last. For instance, you can get an extended warranty quote for a period of up to 3 years or 40,000 miles. If you drive more often and for long then the warranty won’t even last that much. In cases in which you also want to keep your car for a long time, then you need to get an extended warranty whose duration is much longer.
- Inclusion of deductibles in the warranty contract.
Despite an extended warranty taking up the costs of repair, some warranty policies come with deductibles which require you as a client to get something out the pocket in the event of repairs. To avoid these unexpected demands, it is advisable to always read the warranty contract to establish whether there are deductibles. Most clients find this deductible quite frustrating and demanding. The provider should explain all details included in the warranty and let you know that there will be times when you will have to get something out of the pocket to fix a repair.
- Reputation of the provider.
Do insightful research of the warranty-providing company to get more information about the company. This research also helps you identify any past issues from former clients with the company. There are some third-party providers which are not trustworthy thus you should pick a provider that is credited by the Better Business Bureau. This kind of accreditation will give you confidence enough that you are purchasing a warranty from a trusted and reliable source.
