Sometimes called Extended Warranty, this product safeguards you in case of faults or breakdowns giving you added security and peace of mind. It covers the major mechanical and electrical items of your vehicle.
This cover protects customers against surprises when buying a new or used vehicle. These products provide similar protection to what you may get when buying through a dealer.
The warranties will generally cover the costs of those repairs, parts & labour. There are limitations – you must still pay for normal wear and tear items like new tyres, light bulbs and other general maintenance when required, but the warranty should cover those unexpected mechanical failures.
Most new purchases come with a 2 or 3 year warranty. You can arrange cover for your vehicle or boat for up to 3 more years, commencing from the moment your manufacturer’s warranty ceases. Perfect for those who want to keep their vehicle or boat long term, but without the worry of unexpected mechanical costs.
Sure, you’re buying a vehicle that looks, smells, and drives great. BUT, you have no idea how it’s previous owner treated the vehicle. Was it thrashed? Was it smashed? Was it serviced? (Read our tips on buying a vehicle here).
You may like to consider a mechanical warranty for any used vehicle or boat, even if purchased from a reputable dealer.
