Very easy warranty company to deal with - would recommend
Member Name: lordgibbness
Advantages: Easy to deal with - they make claims straighforward
Disadvantages: As your car ages, the payout gets lower
I inherited my warrantydirect policy from the previous owner of my car (who kindly transferred it to me).
I was originally quite dubious as to how useful it would be having read some comments on internet forums about companies not paying out for claims etc.
Also, I am usually someone who would prefer to save money and pay for maintenance out of my own pocket if the worst was to happen.
However, I have nothing but praise for my dealings with warrantydirect. They are so simple to deal with - the garage phones through and logs the claim, the work is carried out and warranty direct send a cheque through the post.
I must say I was blown away by how good warranty direct, are seeing as I am usually cynical when it comes to things like insurance payouts etc.
For example, I had to get the two chain tensioners replaced on my BMW M3, which involved an engine strip-down, and WD covered almost the complete cost (£800 of a £1000 bill).
Much impressed, and would recommend.
Summary: A worthwhile warranty cover
