Why Do I Need This Cover?

Car troubles are inconvenient at best, and are often accompanied by costs like call-out fees, towing charges and more.

As vehicles get older, and manufacturing warranties fall away, vehicles also become more prone to expensive breakdowns.

Mechanical warranties are designed to offset these repair costs when the inevitable happens and to protect your pocket against any mechanical or electrical breakdown of a host of components in your car.
