If you’ve ever had a car break down unexpectedly, you know the perfect storm of consequences it can cause. Not only do you lose the use of your car, which can make it all but impossible to get to work, but you’re stuck with a costly repair bill. Trying to get together the money for the repair is hard while you’re not able to work as much and/or are paying for alternate transportation. It can be a nightmare that throws off your budget not just for the month, but for the year.
A Vehicle Service Contract gives you peace of mind knowing that if a breakdown does occur, the cost will be covered in full or in part. This means that you can save your budget even if you have a major breakdown.
A Vehicle Service Contract is comprehensive coverage that helps keep your vehicle on the road and provides you with protection against future repair costs.
While your regular auto insurance will cover you in case of an accident or theft, it won’t help pay for repairs required because the car broke down due to normal use or a mechanical defect. This is where your Vehicle Service Contract comes in handy. Instead of you having to pay out-of-pocket for the repairs, the contract provider will pay some or all the cost.
As time goes on and your mileage creeps up, repair and/or replacement of parts, like fuel pumps and transmissions, become inevitable. Once the manufacturer’s warranty expires, those repair/replacement costs become your responsibility. This is where a Vehicle Service Contract will come in handy!
