Frequently Asked Questions

Auto warranty coverage plans and the questions you may have, we have addressed the most commonly asked questions we have received over the last few years to help get you answers you are looking for. If you have any further questions please feel free to call to speak to one of our specialist for assistance.

This is by far our most common extended auto warranty question. This is why we offer a “30-Day Free Look” that will allow you to receive coverage and review your policy for a full 30 days. During your “30-Day Free Look” period if you are not satisfied (for any reason), you can request a full refund of the initial down payment you made at the time of purchase. This is a no hassle process, we want to serve our customers that are truly satisfied with our coverage plans.

This would ultimately depend on how much time is remaining on your manufacturer’s warranty, remember many car manufactures will offer a 3 year 36,000 mile bumper to bumper coverage plan when you purchase new but then there is an additional 2 year 34,000 mile power train policy which doesn’t cover many component such as the electrical system, the your braking system, A/C, and much more. If your vehicle has 1 – 2 years left of on your manufactures warranty policy now would be a great time to purchase a Protect My Car policy. Protect My Car will cover many of the non covered components that your power train policy is lacking protection for.

Protect My Car’s vehicle service contracts and our Ambassador policies can be transferred at anytime. If you have paid for more coverage then what was utilized a prorated refund will be calculated and refunded depending on how much money has been paid into the policy and how many miles have been put on the vehicle from the date the contract was purchased and how many miles were driven under the term of the policy. If you trade your vehicle in, or sell it privately the policy you purchased from Protect My Car is fully transferable to the person that purchases your vehicle, this is a great selling point for anyone looking to purchase a used vehicle.

A Vehicle Service Contract was designed to provide consumers with protection from the high cost of unexpected repair bills. Vehicle Service Contracts are more commonly known as an aftermarket auto warranty. Vehicle Service Contracts (VSC’s) are designed to help consumers off set the high cost of your mechanical repair bills when your vehicle breaks down or won’t start. Protect My Car includes 24/7 roadside assistance to every customer that purchases a protection plan, as well as a rental car reimbursement plan for all repairs that take more than 4 billable hours to complete allowing you to get back to work, or home to your kids.

Protect My Car offers our “30 Day Free Look Period” which provides all our customers a full 30 days to review the term and conditions of the coverage plan that was purchased and if there is anything that you are not satisfied with you are able to call and get a full refund for the initial down payment that was made when you purchased your contract. Now since Protect My Car offers the full 30 day free look period, the coverage begins 30 days from the date you purchased your VSC. Now if you have an issue during the first 30 days from the date you purchased your contract and you need a tow, someone to change your flat tire, bring you a few gallons of gas you can utilize those benefits of the contract at any time. You will not be able to file a repair claim during the first 30 days. If you purchase one of our Ambassador Maintenance contracts, a repair can be filed with our Claims department after 15 days from the date you purchased your contract.
