What is a Used Car Warranty?
If your car is over three years old, chances are your manufacturer's warranty will have expired. Used car warranty is your safety net should something go wrong with your vehicle. It provides a form of additional insurance cover against certain faults, which can provide you with peace of mind that you’re protected when things don’t go to plan.
Warrantywise cover your car and offer the very best cover and service that is second to none, taking the stress out of these situations, to help protect you from facing unexpected repair bills that could run into thousands of pounds. Warrantywise protects you against expensive repair bills.
Why do I need a Used Car Warranty?
Every year over 1,000,000 cars are left unprotected when their manufacturer's warranty expires. This leaves car owners exposed to high-priced repair bills often running up into the hundreds and sometimes thousands.
Modern vehicles can cost a small fortune to fix if they go wrong and with some main dealers now charging up to £200 per hour the labour charges alone can be crippling. Your car is likely to be the 2nd largest investment you’ll make in your lifetime, so why leave it without mechanical breakdown protection?
Taking out an extended warranty with Warrantywise will protect you from these costs that seem to come at the most inconvenient times. No other warranty company covers more of your vehicle and all our warranties include roadside assistance, recovery, car hire and your hotel and travel expenses as standard.

Car Warranty Servicing: Do's and Dont's
|We don't require you to have full service history or any servicing at a main dealer||We do need proof that the last relevant full service was performed within the last 12 months , 10,000 miles or any other service period recommended by the manufacturer|
|Don't use the window cleaner, even if he used to sweep up and make the tea at Rolls Royce when he was a lad.||Need to use a VAT registered garage (those are the ones that charge you VAT).|
|Don't show us a page torn out of a duplicate book with the words, “full service carried out for fifty quid” we won’t be impressed!||Do make sure you get VAT receipts showing what’s been done and what parts have been fitted.|
|If you use a main dealer you’re home and dry, otherwise DO make sure whoever carries out the service does so as recommended in your service book and within 30 days or 1,000 miles of the period stated.|
NOTE: You must use a VAT registered garage, request detailed receipts and follow the manufacturer’s recommendations in your service book.
Stick to all of the above and you can’t go wrong! I’m sure you’ll agree we aren’t asking the earth, and it can save us both a lot of unnecessary headache.
