When can you buy an extended car warranty?

Many motorists believe you can only get car warranty protection with a new car's manufacturer warranty, or a used car including a dealer warranty - they couldn’t be more wrong!

Extended car warranties have been directly sold to private motorists since the mid-nineties (in fact, MotorEasy founder Duncan McClure Fisher played a major role in this movement), but it is apparent that many are missing out on the protection these products offer.

Every week around 50,000 cars' manufacturer warranty expires, just as theses cars reach an age and mileage when they are increasingly likely to break down (for this, consider breakdown cover)! The availability of an extended warranty should therefore be very appealing, after all, peace of mind and protection from large repair bills will always be of interest to the average motorist.


Extending Manufacturer Car Warranty

Manufacturer warranty expiring but you want to keep the car for longer? This is the best time to consider extending your warranty protection as you can obtain third party coverage equivalent to the new manufacturer warranty protection - at a fraction of manufacturer extended warranty prices.

We can renew an expiring manufacturer warranty or third party extended warranty, and can setup cover that goes live the day your existing protection ends - so there's no need to rush when your warranty expires.
