Warranty Direct Publishes Free "Consumer's Guide To Extended Vehicle Warranties and Service Contracts

Rising consumer interest in extended warranties for used cars, vans and trucks has prompted Warranty Direct (http://www.warrantydirect.com) of Charlotte to produce a free Consumer's Guide to Extended Vehicle Warranties and Service Contracts.

With the economy like it is, more and more people are holding on to their cars longer and realizing that an extended warranty or service contract can be an economical way to protect their investments said Tara Williams Executive Vice President of Warranty Direct's Charlotte operations.

Once the manufacturer,s warranty expires, the burden is on the consumer to pay for any repairs, which can run into the thousands of dollars as the years and mileage add up-unless you are protected by some sort of extended vehicle warranty or service contract. After the manufacturer's warranty expires, consumers are likely to face more expensive repairs involving large mechanical parts, engine or drive train issues. That's when a service contract can really come in handy and save owners as much as thousands of dollars.

Williams explained that the new Consumer's Guide contains a lot of key information spread across our website, http://www.warrantydirect.com, and other available resources. We've taken all that helpful information, condensed it into an 11-page e-book, and made it available free on our site as a public service.

The e-book can be downloaded by clicking this Warranty Direct Guide link. Other key facts included in this professionally written publication include:

* "The many benefits of an extended vehicle warranty"

* "How to decide if an extended vehicle warranty is right for you"

* "How to choose an extended vehicle warranty provider"

* "How repairs and repair payments are handled"

* "Service contract payment options, transfers and cancellations"

For more than 30 years, Warranty Direct has been part of one of the largest and most established vehicle service contract companies in North America. Today Warranty Direct operates primarily on the Internet, providing full transparency for the consumer so they can see all options, prices and contracts online prior to purchase. The company respects consumers by never engaging in unsolicited phone calls (telemarketing). Warranty Direct is one of the few auto warranty companies rated A+ by the Better Business Bureau.

Warranty Direct Expands Extended Auto Warranty Coverage For Customers At No Extra Charge

CHARLOTTE, NC (September 12, 2011)-- Warranty Direct (www.warrantydirect.com), a leading provider of extended vehicle service contracts, has announced expanded coverage for its major policies at no additional cost, in response to customer requests.

"We are increasing the coverage for our most popular contracts by a whole year, and providing additional options for others, to make our coverage an even better value in the current economy," said Tara Williams, Executive Vice President of Warranty Direct in Charlotte. "We have had numerous customer requests for these options, and we are very pleased to make them available, effective Sept. 12."

"With several comprehensive policy options, coverage for new cars has been increased by one year, to a maximum of eight years, and for used cars up to a maximum of 11 years of vehicle age," Williams explained. "For one of our popular economical products, which just covers major components such as engine, transmission and drive train, we have expanded it to cover electronic components as well, for just about 10 percent more."

Warranty Direct is also offering the extended warranty industry’s first "disappearing deductible." It will waive its normal $100 deductible whenever customers have their cars repaired at two major approved suppliers, Firestone Complete Auto Care with 1,500 stores nationwide and AAMCO Transmission Repair with 750 locations.

Additional information on the coverage improvement options are available on the company website, www.warrantydirect.com

Warranty Direct Promotes Strength, Stability & Honesty With Automotive Service Contract Products

CHARLOTTE, NC (June 29, 2011) -- With many companies offering vehicle service contracts reeling from recent bad press, Warranty Direct has seen steady sales in service contracts due to smart consumers looking for comprehensive vehicle coverage provided by a licensed and reputable company.

"The demise of some of our competitors has forced consumers to become more educated and to demand a stronger and more stable company to support their investment in a vehicle service contract, which will certainly pay off for the consumer," said Tara Williams, Executive Vice President, Warranty Direct and a 19-year industry veteran. "The demand for service plans offered by Warranty Direct has remained strong in part due to our A+ Rating by the Better Business Bureau which, in many cases, is a vast departure from many of our competitors," Williams added.

Warranty Direct is also part of a family of leaders in the automotive service contract industry with paid repair bills for the consumer. In 2010, Warranty Direct, via its parent company, dispersed $39.7 million dollars in repair bills to their customers and is in line to match disbursements this year with over $15.4 million paid out through the month of May.

"Your company covered the cost of repairs (for two separate service visits) without any problem," Bob W. from Atlanta, Georgia, informed Warranty Direct. "I am very glad I purchased the warranty when I did. Thank you for making these repairs so simple and direct, I definitely recommend your service," he added.

Warranty Direct promotes total transparency to the consumer so they may see prices and contracts online and respects these consumers by never engaging in unsolicited calls or using direct mail campaigns.
