Get your continued coverage through a solid company.
They administrator needs to have the funds to pay your claims.
When you get coverage, you will have an agreement with the company that sells you're the contract and the other who will administer the claims.
Only a well-funded company that does both the marketing and administration of funds can cover the claims of their clients.
Nothing is more important than a proven track record for playing claims when choosing a company to provide you with the continuing coverage you need for your vehicle.
Know that your vehicle may be one that can't be covered or may be extremely expensive.
High performance vehicles or those that require more expensive parts will cost more to repair and therefore, may require more expensive coverage if it is available.
There are also some types of vehicles that are known to need frequent repairs.
When you do find a reliable company with a proven track record, your job isn't over.
You will also need to know the specifics of your contract before you sign it.
Many cover mechanical breakdowns and not those repairs needed as a normal part of wear and tear of the vehicle.
If you have ABS brakes, you will also want to make sure they are covered.
The less coverage you have, the more likely you are to have your claims rejected.
You also need to see how you will need to take care of repairs.
You may be required to have all repairs made at a specific location or you may be able to have them made wherever you want.
You should also deal with only those companies which pay directly to the repair facility rather than dealing with those that expect you to pay yourself and then be reimbursed.
Don't purchase a contract for continued coverage until you see a sample contract that itemizes what is covered and what is not.
If you can't get the sample you request, then don't go with that company.
Don't assume that anything is included if it is not listed specifically.
Some contracts include roadside service and/or rental reimbursement and these features will also be listed specifically.
You will also want to see when your coverage begins.
Opt for a company that begins coverage the day your get the coverage, not the day you bought your vehicle.
Although it is better to get your coverage as soon as possible after getting your car, many people wait several months.
You don't want coverage that backs up to the purchase date under these circumstances.
The key to getting good ongoing coverage that will pay claims for your vehicle's needed repairs is researching the companies that provide the coverage and never assuming anything that is not in print!
