New Car Warranties
What’s does a new car warranty with MotorEasy cover?
New car warranty coverage protects most of your car against repairs or failures. Faults will be rectified, free of charge, by a manufacturer dealer.
What’s not covered by their new car warranty?
New car warranty coverage won’t cover parts termed perishable, service, frictional or wearing; although, with a new car, these will also be replaced if they fail due to incorrect fitment in the early part of a car’s life.
What isn’t covered by a warranty at all?
No car warranty in the world covers consumable parts designed to wear out, such as brake pads, wiper blades, exhausts, batteries and tires.
My new car warranty is expiring. What can I do?
Manufacturer car warranties usually expire after three years. Following this, you’ll be on your own, with the risk of huge bills to pay if something serious fails in your vehicle. And, with today’s sophisticated cars and high garage labour rates, that can be the case all too frequently!
Used Car Warranties
When can I buy used car warranty cover?
You can buy a MotorEasy used car warranty at any time if your car is less than 12 years old and has recorded less than 120,000 thousand miles since new. Even if you don’t have a warranty at the moment, you’re still eligible.
Do I need a full-service history to buy an extended used car warranty?
No. As long as your car has had a manufacturer service in the last year, you can take out a MotorEasy plan. If you haven’t had this done, they can arrange it (at up to 40% less than what manufacturer main dealerships charge).
MotorEasy Car Warranties
What do I need to do to keep my warranty valid?
You need to maintain your car according to manufacturer specifications. This includes keeping it fully serviced as well as ensuring your car road fund license (aka tax) and MOT are up to date. In addition, essential service items such as timing belts must have been changed at the appropriate interval. For ultimate ease and convenience, add MOT testing and servicing as additional products to your warranty during the checkout process. They offer significant savings against the MOT RRP and manufacturer service prices.
How long will my MotorEasy car warranty last?
You can buy a car warranty plan for 12, 24 or 36 months.
What payment options are available with MotorEasy?
Their car warranty plans can be paid monthly or annually. Significant discounts are available for multi-year plans, which are available for up to three years.
What other benefits are included?
- 24/7 online booking and tracking of repairs
- Parts and hourly labour costs covered (including VAT)
- Wear and tear covered from day one (following a health check at one of their network garages)
- Consequential loss / damage covered
- Overheating failures covered
- Diagnostic costs as part of a valid repair covered
- Contributions to recovery, onward travel, accommodation and journey completion solutions
- Failures in Europe covered
- Claims limits up to the value of your car covered
- I still have time on my manufacturer’s warranty. Should I consider extra protection?
Your manufacturer warranty should be enough, but MotorEasy have options that can provide seamless cover as your manufacturer warranty gets close to expiring.
How do MotorEasy warranties differ from dealer warranties?
A franchised dealer will offer you an extended warranty organised by the manufacturer the dealer represents. This is unlikely to cover you for wear and tear, consequential loss, overheating and many other benefits that come with a MotorEasy car warranty. If you’re buying a car from a non-franchised dealership, the car will probably be supplied with minimal three-month cover that will offer only basic protection. If you have short-term cover, MotorEasy has a plan that will supplement it until the expiry date – when you’ll be ready to take out our full vehicle warranty product.
Car Warranty Repairs
How do I start a car warranty repair?
There are about 20,000 garages nationally that are involved with car servicing and repairs, ranging from franchised dealers, specialists, independents and fast fits. Of these, MotorEasy has given approved network status and arranged direct billing arrangements with over 10,000 – that’s more than half! If you choose to use one of the remaining 10,000, then you will need to pay for any pre-approved repairs and reclaim later.
What are the options if my car suffers a breakdown abroad?
Call their repair line for advice. Repairs can be carried out wherever you are on the Continent, but you will need to pay and reclaim any authorised and agreed contributions.
Does my MotorEasy warranty include recovery?
For covered and authorised repairs, they’ll contribute towards recovery costs if you don’t have a recovery provider already in place. (MotorEasy also offers excellent-value breakdown recovery insurance)
Can I submit a repair out of hours?
Yes, online, but their engineers won’t be able to approve repairs submitted outside business hours.
Who pays for repair costs?
They will pay a network garage directly for valid claims – minus any agreed contributions. If you’d rather use a non-network garage, you will need to settle and reclaim the authorised amount, which they’ll then reimburse within seven days.
Other Car Warranty Frequently Asked Questions
What are the options if I sell my vehicle?
You can cancel the remainder of your policy or transfer it to your replacement car – or the new owner if you’d prefer.
Why are MotorEasy car warranties cheaper than the competition?
Years of experience have gone into their pricing, and their online focus allows them to operate on reduced overheads. There are also no middlemen taking slices; they deal directly with you. Here at MotorEasy a cheap car warranty is always guaranteed.
My used car came with a warranty from the dealership. What can I do?
If you’re worried about any existing dealer warranty insurance, relax: you can top it up with a MotorEasy plan that provides supplemental protection until the expiry date, by which time you’ll be ready to take out their full vehicle warranty product. Alternatively, they can arrange for their cover to start as soon as your dealer agreement ends. Purchasing a used car from a dealership? Consider asking for a lower price without their warranty and getting covered by MotorEasy instead.
Does a MotorEasy car warranty cover modified vehicles?
All vehicles must have no modifications made to the manufacturer’s original specification (unless agreed in writing by them). Although it’s not their intention to provide cover for extremely modified vehicles, some minor modifications may be acceptable – but will need to be agreed with them before cover is finalised.
