How to Use Your Warranty Successfully

“What kind of warranty comes with my car repair,” can bring up other questions and concerns related to car repair warranties. A lot of people don’t know how to fully access their warranty terms and get their warranty honored. Below are some tips for understanding how to use your warranty to its fullest potential.

Understanding the terms in your warranty…
Warranties are basically an agreement between you the car owner and the shop. Depending on what type of warranty you have set in place, the conditions will be different and you must follow and understand them in order to successfully use your warranty.

This starts by reading your entire warranty. Don’t skim and sign and agree to things you might not agree with in the long run. Be aware of modifications and the timeline. Look for the word excludes – this will help you know what your warrant will not cover no matter how much you ask. If you are confused, don’t be afraid to ask for clarification. Warranties can be wordy and long.

Keep up with the schedule listed in your warranty…
Warranties can list specific start and end dates to maintain a schedule of repair. It may also require bringing your car in before certain dates in order to be fully repaired. Be sure to follow any scheduled dates clearly otherwise the warranty could be voided.

Another important thing to remember here is to keep your own record. Yes, Paul Bros. and other body shops keep a record of all repairs, but it’s a good habit to maintain personal records. Hang on to all of your receipts – this will help the repair process run smoothly when working on under warranty.
