Option 2. Globe Car Centre subsidised Autoprotect Warranty

This warranty is portable to any Vat Registered garage in the UK.

We have negotiated a quality scheme with one of the country's largest warranty providers Auto protect.

This company has underwritten policies. Simply put, these are THE BEST used car warranties on the market, supplied by many main dealer outlets.. Unfortunately they are also the dearest, but because you are opting out of our own warranty scheme we subsidise up to 50% of the cost prices of each warranty which is why they are so affordable.

The Autoprotect Warranties cover both parts and labour and can be upgraded to anything up to 3 years, claim limits can be increased right up to cost of the car per claim and include cover for the air conditioning system.

The Autoprotect policies cover the vehicle regardless of number of claims or the mileage your vehicle travels, as long as it is maintained to the manufacturers recommended intervals by any vat registered garage.
