    Nothing blows a budget faster than a car repair. Car repair bills are expensive and can set you back financially, unless your car is under warranty.

    If your car goes wrong, it’s likely you’ll be met with an expensive repair bill. You may see it as part and parcel of owning a car or van but you have to admit, when it really comes down to it, hassle free motoring is what we all want. When your vehicle is in the garage there’s a scenario most motorists experience at some point in their lives; that feeling of the unknown where one can only speculate and hope to know the outcome of the repairer’s assessment.

    Let us make it clear that it isn’t our intention to scaremonger with this post. When your manufacturer’s warranty expires, the car repair bills are your responsibility, so why not take out an extended car warranty and let us foot the bill? Warrantywise offer a used car warranty that is the best in the business, and below are the top 5 most expensive car repair bills paid in May 2017 for our customers. By showing them to you we hope you see the worth in protecting your bank balance this year and beyond.

  4. Dealer Case Study -MelWood Automotive

    redline-header

    MelWood Automotive protect their prestigious vehicles with Warrantywise

    MelWood Automotive sell high end prestigious cars, from the likes of, Aston Martin, Range Rover, and Porsche. MelWood, pride themselves in offering outstanding value for money by continuing to maintain an exceptionally high standard of vehicle preparation. Warrantywise recently got in touch to talk to them about their experience with Warrantywise, here is what they had to say. 

    img_9400-1

    Why did you choose Warrantywise?

    MelWood have been utilising the services of Warrantywise for almost 6 years now. Back in 2011 when MelWood was founded, we spent much time carefully considering the various warranty companies that had approached us wanting to do long term business. As you can imagine, there were files and files of information to go through, each with companies detailing exactly what they could offer us, how their claims procedures worked and what seemed endless small print to read through! However when the time came to make a decision, it was clear that Warrantywise stood head and shoulders above the rest and was potentially a perfect business associate for MelWood moving forwards.

     We pride ourselves at MelWood on offering a very bespoke level of personal customer service, adopting that all important ‘can do’ attitude in everything we do. Very quickly it became clear that Warrantywise operate their business in exactly the same way. Put the customer first, worry about the corporate stuff later. We found Warrantywise offered not only the very best professional warranty coverage in the UK, but it also took a ‘hassle-free’ approach to the way they do business. Obviously this all makes for great reading, but the only time you ever find out how good a warranty company is, is when the client is required to make a claim.

    img_9342-1-1

    Repairs Process

    Naturally at MelWood we prepare our vehicles to the very highest standards within the motor industry, and this is demonstrated by our company having one of the very lowest warranty claim rates in the country. However on a very rare occasion where our client suffered a rear LED lamp failure on their 4 year old Bentley Continental GT by a simple diode malfunction, the simple online claims process was dealt with within minutes and Warrantywise issued authorisation for the £1,200 repair to be carried out. The result? Our client was back in their car, all repaired and within 24 hours. It really doesn’t get any better than that now does it!!

    “Our client was back in their car, all repaired and within 24 hours.”

    However, we find it is also the personal touches that count too, especially in an age where both consumers and companies alike are being driven towards the ‘do it yourself’ online business models. We at MelWood have never been fond of this new direction as it takes away that all important ‘personal touch’ from business to customer, therefore, we are very lucky to have the very best Account Manager in the business (Rachael Taylor) working closely with us on a one-to-one basis looking after our warranty requirements as necessary. This is exactly how business should be!

    Become a Wise Dealer!
    Already have an Account?

    Melwood Automotive Cars said their top three reasons for using Warrantywise are:

      • Ability to offer our clients with the very best warranties in the business.
      • Ability to offer our clients a ‘hassle-free’ way of claiming should the need ever arise.
      • Great value for money should our customers wish to extend their cover through the years of vehicle ownership.

    “We would like to thank Warrantywise for their association with MelWood over the past 6 years, and we hope to continue to build upon this strong partnership for many years to come as MelWood continues to grow.”

    Meet their Account Manager… Rachael

    I began working at Warrantywise in January 2010. My first role was within the retail department selling private warranty plans to the general public and then I moved onto head up the trade department. This was most definitely my forte, and have enjoyed many years managing staff and also key accounts within the business.

    I have been Charlie’s account manager since he joined Warrantywise and I know just how much passion he has for his business, his vehicles are prepped and checked right to the very core before each and every sale, and this reflects on the success of his business.  I speak to Charlie regularly and he is one of the friendliest people I have ever had to deal with. By preparing the vehicles as he does too, this also makes the whole Warranty experience a lot smoother and easier, as this reflects on his claims rate giving his customers total confidence and peace of mind.

    We are proud to have developed a strong business relationship with Charlie and the team at MelWood Automotive, as we have with many many more car dealers too.

    Key Facts
    Make Model Fault Code Amount Paid
    BMW X5 Electrical £721.06

    Mr Owen purchased his BMW X5 from a car dealer in summer 2016, the car came with a three month warranty, but Mr Owen decided to extended, he stated, ” As I had invested so much money in my BMW I thought it would be wise to extend the warranty to 12 months and after some research and recommendations I went with Warrantywise.”

    During a routine check in March 2017, a fault was diagnosed with the engine oil. Mr Owen said, “The engine oil had been changed and despite the amount of oil being carefully measured the on board computer stated that the oil level was too high. Further diagnostics revealed that the oil gauge sensor was malfunctioning. The actual replacement part was not overly expensive but it was a labour intensive job to access the sump of the engine. The quote for competing the work was overly expensive and came as a bit of a shock. I came home and immediately checked my warranty policy, contacted the garage with the details of this policy and they in turn emailed Warrantywise.”

    Mr Owen further went on to say, “Within a matter of a couple of hours Warrantywise had contacted both myself and the garage and authorised the repair. The work was carried out once the replacement parts had been received and payment was prompt from Warrantywise. The garage owner was extremely impressed with Warrantywise.”

    Mr Owen stated that he has no hesitation recommending Warrantywise to his friends and family. The owner of the garage which carried out the work, was extremely impressed that even he has recommended Warrantywise to customers. Mr Owen went on to describe Warrantywise as, “Supportive, professional and efficient.”

    Mr Owen was full of praise when describing his overall experience with Warrantywise, he concluded by saying, “When you decide on a Warranty policy you are always wary of exactly what you are covered for and although this is clearly stated in the supporting documents, you naturally assume that they will do as much as they can to avoid paying for any necessary work. Warrantywise have been the exact opposite, I cannot fault the support they gave me, the promptness of their assessment and the communication throughout the whole process. They came highly recommended to me and I am now a total convert and will be recommending them to all my friends. You certainly get what you pay for when you take out a warranty with Warrantywise.”

    “You certainly get what you pay for when you take out a warranty with Warrantywise.”

  7. Warrantywise Case Study #11 – Graham Dove

    Key Facts
    Make Model Fault Code Amount Paid
    Mercedes GL Various £1670.52

    Mr Dove purchased his Mercedes GL from a car dealer in September 2016. When purchasing his new car Mr Dove also received a 12 months Warrantywise Bronze Warranty cover. Soon after, Mr Dove decided to do his research on Warrantywise and came across the Warrantywise YouTube channel. Mr Dove stated, “When I bought my car it had a one year bronze warranty, so I looked up Warrantywise on the internet and looked at the Warrantywise Youtube channel and watched the videos with Quentin Willson and thought if it is something he designed it can not be bad.” Mr Dove then decided to upgrade his cover to Platinum for three years, for added peace of mind.

    Mr Dove recently took his Mercedes GL to his local Mercedes garage when the boot lock on his car failed to work. Mr Dove said, “When the boot lock went on the car I took it down to the dealer garage to have a look. They got in touch with Warrantywise to notify them of the problem, Warrantywise then got back to the garage and authorised the repair work to be carried out.”

    Due to the garage not having the parts to carry out the repair, the repair was rescheduled for a different day. On the day of the repair Mr Dove was driving to the Mercedes garage when he encountered another problem with the car. He stated, “I was driving to the garage and heard a massive bang and thought I hit a brick on the road. The garage had a look and stated that the airbag had exploded. So once again the garage contacted Warrantywise about the problem and the repair was authorised shortly after.”

    Mr Dove stated that he would recommend Warrantywise to everyone, “I would just like to say how very impressed the wife and I are with the Warrantywise cover, I will certainly be recommending you to everybody I speak to as it does what it says on the tin, unlike other warranties we have had in the past.” Mr Dove went on to describe Warrantywise as, “Outstanding, value for money and I would highly recommend.”

    “I will certainly be recommending you to everybody I speak to”

    Mr Dove was full of praise when describing his overall experience with Warrantywise, he concluded by saying. “My overall experience has been faultless. At the time when I upgraded I thought this is a lot of money to pay on a warranty, but I am so glad I did it, it is well worth the money. Well done on a great business and I look forward to using you again in the future. I would rate this company 5 stars out of 5, and I can not tell you how impressed I am.”

    “At the time when I upgraded I thought that is a lot of money to pay on a warranty, but I am so glad I did it, it is well worth the money.”

  9. Dealer Case Study – Liberty Cars

    Castle Motors Case Study

    Announcing the winner of the Warrantywise Tag Heuer watch draw – Liberty Cars

    Throughout the month of December, Warrantywise held a giveaway for car dealers to win a £1,200 Tag Heuer watch. We are excited to announce that Liberty Cars in Manchester is the lucky winner.  We went to visit Martin at Liberty Cars to congratulate him on the win, and to get his thoughts about his experience with Warrantywise.

    Warrantywise Dealer Support Executive Stephen went to visit Martin at Liberty cars to present him with his Tag Heuer watch.  Martin got back in touch to express his joy on winning stating, “I am loving the watch, everyone at my church on Sunday was taking a good look, Warrantywise is definitely known in my church in Manchester now.”

    Why did you chose Warrantywise?

    Liberty cars signed up with Warrantywise and began providing their customers with the UK’s best used car warranty in summer 2016. Having received disappointing service from other warranty providers, Liberty Cars wanted a provider they could trust, they stated, “at Liberty Cars we pride ourselves on selling well prepared cars and wanted to partner with a warranty company that could help us maintain a pleasant customer experience after the cars left our premises. Warrantywise were actually the first company to visit our office and talk us through the service that they would be providing to our customers, I was very impressed by this standard and chose to give Warrantywise a try.”

    Peace of mind was an important factor for Liberty Cars. They wanted to use the best warranty company to protect their cars and to provide their customers with peace of mind. Liberty Cars stated, “Warrantywise ensures our customers receive a great aftersales experience. Warrantywise cover what is listed in the warranty, they keep to their word and the added breakdown cover has been a bonus to our customers peace of mind.”

    Aftersales care

    Although selling a car is a vital part of a car dealership, the aftersale is equally as important. Liberty Cars, emphasised the importance of this by stating, “for many businesses, the focus many times is aimed at the next weeks or month of sales targets, and any challenges that arise can be a big distraction to making that all important business progress.”

    They further went on tho say, “no car dealer likes return cars and the fact that Warrantywise have taken the pressure off us by seeing to any problematic issues, that can arise from time to time, has been a God send.”

    “Warrantywise have taken the pressure off us by seeing to any problematic issues that arise.”

    Castle Motors Case Study

    Booking Process

    When booking on warranties, car dealers can either use the online system or ring their dedicated account manager. Liberty Cars, praised the online system, stating, “the online system is straightforward and easy to use. It lists various options for types of cover, add ons and extra additional cover, this is all displayed in an easy to follow layout, it is quick and easy to find what you need.”

    Already have an Account?

    Liberty Cars said their top three reasons for using Warrantywise are:

    • Quality service and standards
    • Warrantywise are true to their word and deliver what they promise
    • Great product- it definitely feels like we are in a partnership which is helping us to make all our customer experiences a good one every time.

    Liberty Cars praised their overall experience with Warrantywise stating, “it is clear from our dealings with Warrantywise that they have a strong team set up on every level. From the boys that pop down to our office with forecourt signage and some cheeky doughnuts, to our Account Manager Toby, who is always on hand to help us with any queries we may have, it’s great to know that there is support for our business both on a pre-sales and an aftersales level. Warrantywise are a real asset to Liberty Cars.”

    “There is support for our business both on a pre-sales and an aftersales level. Warrantywise are a real asset to Liberty Cars.”

    Meet their Account Manager… Toby

    I started working at Warrantywise in September 2010 , originally starting on our retail department, then transferring onto our trade team in May 2012. I love working on our trade team as every day is different, and I am able to build life long relationships with my car dealers.

    I speak with Martin on a regular basis and he always knows I am only a phone call or email away should he require my assistance. I have been looking after Martin & the Liberty Cars account since they started using us in summer 2016. Martin’s account has been easy to manage, he rarely gets issues with his cars as he prepares them to the highest standard, & with Martin always booking the best level of warranty cover available to him, there is never any issues when he has needed to use us, making both his and the customers experience a good one.

  10. Top 5 things that could go wrong with your car – and how to fix them

    Leave a Comment
    • More than 75% of Brits would leave it to a mechanic to do all standard maintenance checks on their vehicle
    • Almost a third of British motorists have never carried out basic maintenance tasks on their car before  (28%)
    • More than 30% of UK drivers don’t feel confident enough to change a tyre
    • Ten per cent of motorists are unable to identify warning lights on their car’s dashboard
    • One in ten drivers do not feel 100 per cent confident when it comes to filling up their petrol tank
    • More than 10% don’t have the confidence to check their own tyre pressure

    image006

    Swinton research reveals that more than a quarter of British motorists avoid basic car maintenance tasks – three quarters would leave standard maintenance checks to a mechanic, rather than checking themselves.

    With that in mind, we’ve pulled out the top five problem areas faced by UK drivers and developed some handy tips on what you can do to make sure you avoid a sticky and costly situation.

    Key stats:

    ·         More than 75% of Brits would leave it to a mechanic to do all standard maintenance checks on their vehicle

    ·         Almost a third of British motorists have never carried out basic maintenance tasks on their car before  (28%)

    ·         More than 30% of UK drivers don’t feel confident enough to change a tyre

    ·         Ten per cent of motorists are unable to identify warning lights on their car’s dashboard

    ·         One in ten drivers do not feel 100 per cent confident when it comes to filling up their petrol tank

    ·         More than 10% don’t have the confidence to check their own tyre pressure
     

    What can go wrong and how you can fix it:

    1.     Oil runs out unexpectedly – half of motorists don’t feel confident changing oil themselves

    If your oil runs out, the engine will start to overheat and the increased friction can cause permanent damage. You can avoid the panic by checking the oil dipstick at least once a fortnight. Simply find the bright handle labelled ‘Engine Oil’, remove the stick and wipe clean, place it back into the pipe, pull out once more and check where the oil film comes up to.

    2.     Flat tyre and no spare – a third of UK drivers feel uncomfortable changing a tyre

    One of the most common car nuisances, a flat tyre can seriously hinder your journey. If you aren’t able to use your spare, handy repair kits are available from most auto parts stores and include a can of clever sealant which can temporarily seal any holes until you can get to a garage. Be sure to keep one of these in your car boot at all times and try to get into the habit of checking your tyre pressure regularly.

    3.     Empty screen wash – almost one in ten don’t feel confident filling their wiper fluid

    Having enough washer fluid in the tank is important for safe driving, especially if you

    drive long distances often. Most screen wash caps are marked with a windscreen wiper symbol, so just unscrew the cap and fill with a mixture of water and screen wash fluid – your owner’s manual will contain instructions on mixing the right proportions.

    4.     No more engine coolant – more than a third of motorists would ask a mechanic to check their coolant levels

    It may be the last thing on your mind but checking the coolant levels in your car is extremely important as it prevents your engine from overheating and will stop the inside of your system rusting. Your driver manual will talk you through how to do this on your car model.

    5.     Dead battery – two thirds of motorists would go straight to a mechanic about battery issues
