Top 6 Things to Consider When Choosing a Vehicle Protection Plan
Vehicle Assurance works with the nation’s top vehicle service contract administrators to make sure you get the best combination of coverage, benefits and affordability.
Your Vehicle Assurance vehicle service contract is transferrable to a new owner if you sell your vehicle. This is a selling point because potential buyers are typically more comfortable purchasing a vehicle with a vehicle service contract already in place.
Depending on your situation, you may need a rental car, towing and/or possibly even travel in order to get your vehicle repaired and back on the road. If you travel long distances frequently, make sure your vehicle service contract includes these benefits.
Some protection plans limit your selection to only repair facilities within the administrator’s network. That can be a problem if you’re on vacation with your family and your vehicle needs repairs. Vehicle service contracts through Vehicle Assurance are true nationwide protection plans that allow you to take your vehicle to any ASE Certified repair facility across the country, with the assurance that your repair costs will be handled by your vehicle service contract administrator.
All vehicle service contracts vary in their coverage, their deductible and duration. And because all vehicles are different, varying in condition, mileage and primary use, your quote will be unique to you. It is important to work with a vehicle service contract professional to find the right combination of coverage, price and duration for your needs, budget and vehicle. Be sure to choose a vehicle service contract that includes coverage for towing, parts and labor to avoid out-of-pocket expenses when your vehicle needs repairs.
The old adage “you get what you pay for” holds true with vehicle service contracts: you should not base your decision on price alone. Be sure to talk to a qualified industry professional and ask for documentation of the coverage you are considering before you make your purchase.

When should you buy a Vehicle Service Contract?

The time is now. Protecting your vehicle sooner than later will save you time and money down the road, literally.

the three most important factors
in protecting your vehicle with a vehicle service contract are your vehicle’s current condition, age and mileage.

If it’s currently running poorly or needs repairs, it’s no longer eligible for a vehicle service contract - which means you’ll have to pay for repairs on your own.

So buy now, save now, protect now. Even if you still have some time left on your manufacturer’s warranty. With additional advantages such as 24-hour roadside assistance and rental vehicle services, a vehicle service contract fills in the gaps in your current protection and picks up where your warranty leaves off when it expires. Waiting until you need repairs is too late, and waiting until your warranty expires only increases the cost of your service contract premiums.

Finding Your VIN & Mileage

Your vehicle identification number (VIN) and mileage are the two most important pieces of information when determining your vehicle’s value and the right protection plan to keep it in good running condition.

All vehicles are assigned a unique VIN when they are manufactured and are used to identify the vehicle in accidents, insurance records and when a body shop, dealership or mechanic does work on it.

Vehicles produced after 1969 will have the VIN stamped to a metal plate located on the driver’s side of the dashboard, near the bottom of the windshield, and can be read from the outside of the vehicle looking through the windshield. You may also find your VIN on the driver’s door vehicle information sticker. It’s also on your vehicle title or insurance paperwork.

All vehicles are equipped with an odometer which tracks the number of miles your vehicle has been driver. It is located in a prominent position in the main dashboard area of your vehicle. Newer vehicles may have a digital odometer; older vehicles have a 6-digit manual odometer that resets after 999,999 miles. You should be able to see it easily from the driver’s seat.

Every vehicle has a history, so before you purchase a used or demonstration vehicle, it is important to get its record. Because Vehicle Service Contracts do not typically cover “pre-existing conditions”, it is important to understand ahead of time what issues may not be covered.
