Yes. Check out our website interactive map www.warrantypart.com. Read your state’s law regarding warranty rates.
This a common misconception and often paralyzes dealers with fear. The truth is, most state laws are specifically written to protect dealers from punitive audits by the factory. In our 25 + years of experience, we have never had a client audited due to a rate increase.
Remember, the factory has a team of legal experts dedicated to stopping dealers from receiving higher rates. Ask yourself these important questions before attempting it on your own:
- Do I have the experience required to be successful?
- Do I have the time to do it myself?
- Do I have intimate knowledge of the law?
- Do I have the tools to get every dollar available to me?
We charge a low, flat fee and never take a cut of your increase.
45 – 60 days on average from start to finish. Most states allow the factory 30 days to review your claim.
