A simple approach to car warranty

By: Keith Barrett

It's not hard to see why policies do come as a shock to so many people. With a large range of options available and quite a number of different prices, it can seem impossible to know where to find the very best deal.

Many car owners, when faced with the thought of purchasing cover, decide to take the easy way out and simply purchase a policy from their local car retailers.

You may feel that this seems like the obvious solution. After all, visiting a local retailer takes much of the hassle out of the process.

Unfortunately, buying policies in this way does not necessarily lead to you receiving a warranty agreement that's right for your needs.

Retailers often act as middlemen, so they are effectively selling on agreements that are underwritten by other companies.

As a result of this approach, you may find that purchasing warranties from car dealerships could lead to you paying up to 50% more than if you had bought from elsewhere.

So what is the best way to make the purchase?

It's vital that you do your research, allowing you to make sure that you are clear on the type of cover that is right for you and the average price that you would expect to pay. Without this basic information, you'll find it very hard to get a good deal.

Fortunately, the internet offers a great tool for researching your options. By comparing policies and prices online, you can quickly build up a detailed knowledge of what's available.

As you compare prices, you're likely to find out that the best deals are to be found by purchasing direct from independent warranty companies.

Many such companies allow you to buy their products online.

As you'll see, the process needn't be as complicated as it first appears.

Carry out your research. Make an informed buying decision. Carry out the transaction online.
