What happens when the mechanical warranty of your car expires?

It’s no secret that as your car matures, you run the risks associated with inevitable warranty expiration. So, what next? Get a Comprehensive car warranty from Bidvest Insurance, of course.

My Car’s Mechanical Warranty Expired. What Next?

We’ll cut to the chase. The older your beloved car gets, the more prone it becomes to technical troubles. And while a new vehicle might also experience its share of unforeseen issues, there is at least a mechanical warranty in place to cover you against the technical faults not covered by regular car insurance.
The first and most important tip is to always make sure you’re familiar with your vehicle’s warranty. Don’t get caught by surprise in your time of need with a manufacturing warranty that has expired. Instead, ensure you are ready and prepared.
Once your warranty has expired, you’ll need a Plan B to assist with the costs of breakdowns and breakages. Once past its expiration date, any mechanical or electrical costs becomes the owner’s liability. Wear and tear issues also don’t fall under general car insurance policies. That’s where a warranty comes in…

Repairs and then some.

A breakdown is so much more than an inconvenience. Cumulatively it can be a costly event, especially if your car is older and prone to more severe wear and tear. The expenses involved with a breakdown or car fault don’t simply include repair costs. Consider the additional extras needed to keep you moving, such as roadside assistance or temporary car hire. A Mechanical warranty from Bidvest Insurance is here to help offset both the repair costs, labour costs,  and extras such as towing, call-out fees, and even onsite medical assistance.

A welcome safety net in your time of need.

While vehicle breakdowns are never a fun affair, a Bidvest insurance mechanical warranty offers a light at the end of the tunnel. Let us take care of those sneaky additional extras and take some of the stress off of the situation.
