Why do I need a Mechanical Warranty?

You need a Mechanical Warranty to protect your car and your budget.

As your car gets older, your Manufacturer’s Warranty will fall away. It’s common knowledge that as a car ages, it becomes more prone to expensive breakdowns. If your car experiences a breakdown, and you don’t have a Warranty, you will be liable for all repair costs.

The cost of car repairs can be devastating. A Mechanical Warranty from Bidvest Insurance can protect you from expensive repair costs.

Customer Testimonials

“Bidvest Insurance really helped me with my motor warranty…My car was overheating and needed a replacement of the thermostat and the water-pump AND the wheel bearings were worn out. All of this was going to cost OVER R34 000! Luckily I had a Warranty with Bidvest Insurance and all those items were covered in full. I would definitely recommend Bidvest Insurance to my friends and family, as I know they are reliable…VIVA BIDVEST VIVA”
