Peace of mind for the Road Ahead.
Why take a chance with your valued investment?
Repairs can be costly and unexpected. Most people don't
realize how much a mechanical breakdown could cost them. In many cases, it can
be included with your financing for just a little more each month.
The costs of repairs tend to increase each year, but with a
vehicle protection plan you are protecting yourself from unexpected repair costs
that may result in significant out-of-pocket expense. The future cost of even
one unexpected repair may easily exceed the cost of buying a GWC Vehicle
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Will the plan save me money?
A: With today’s advanced technology, repair costs have increased and will
continue to do so. The costs of even one repair may easily exceed the cost of
buying a GWC protection plan. No one can predict the future, but you will be
protected from covered repair costs caused by unexpected mechanical breakdowns.
In many cases this can be included in your financing for just a little more each
Q: Do I really need a service contract?
A: As a vehicle ages and accrues mileage, the chances of having a mechanical
failure increase. Your GWC protection plan will be there when you need it most —
once the manufacturer’s basic warranty is no longer there to protect you.
Q: Is the plan transferable if I decide
to sell my vehicle before the coverage ends?
A: Absolutely. Unlike many other plans, you can transfer your coverage to the
next owner. This will help you get the highest possible resale value, because
the next owner will know that they are protected from unexpected high repair
Q: When does my coverage start?
A: For used vehicles, coverage begins day one / mile one, meaning you are fully
protected against covered repair costs the day you take possession of your
vehicle. For new vehicles, coverage begins the day the existing manufacturer’s
warranty expires and is an extension of that coverage — not double coverage.
Q: Where can I take my vehicle for
A: Repairs can be made at the repair facility of your choice. We’ll even help
you locate a preferred provider if you have a breakdown while travelling. Your
plan grants you access to thousands of repair facilities throughout the U.S. and
Q: How do I file a claim for a covered
A: Just take your vehicle to a licensed repair facility or utilize your plan’s
towing benefit. Instruct the repair shop to contact us and we’ll authorize and
pay for the covered repair directly.
Q: When do I have to buy?
A: For used vehicles, you must purchase the plan the same day you purchase your
vehicle. For new vehicles, you have until the manufacturer’s basic warranty
expires. However, it’s always less expensive to buy a plan when you have fewer
miles on your vehicle. The price for protection increases as your vehicle ages
and accrues mileage, and as parts and labor prices increase. As a result, it’s
recommended that you purchase the protection with your vehicle so that you can
lock-in your coverage costs now. This valuable protection can even be included
in your monthly loan payment.
Q: Can I purchase a contract directly
A: GWC distributes vehicle protection plans exclusively through authorized
dealerships throughout the United States. We do not sell directly to the public.
Q: How do I know if my contract is
A: Once we have received and accepted your contract application and payment from
your dealer, we will issue and mail you an ID card. You’ll want to keep this
card with you in case you have problems while on the road.
