As we head into the festive season, we are reflecting on a year of events, partnerships, product launches and much more!
Here are a few of the highlights we’ve had at Autoguard Warranties for 2023.
At Autoguard, we strive to give our Dealer Partners a plethora of new and innovative products to offer their customers and increase their profit.
This year we launched 2 brand new products targeting new customers and ensuring their vehicles are protected.
Smart Repair, targeting small dents, scratches, bumper scrapes and damaged alloys, protects your customers’ vehicles condition and subsequent value. Smart Repair provides dealers’ customers the reassurance for their day-to-day driving mishaps, their no claims bonus, and ensuring customers are keeping their vehicle costs down.
Our Classic cover, launched in May, is targeted for not-so-new, vintage and unique cars. Classic provides comprehensive protection for mechanical breakdowns, electrical faults, as well as a range of additional benefits. We cover classic and vintage cars that are up to over 23 years old, making it an ideal option for owners of rare and valuable vehicles. On top of our standard mechanical and electrical cover, Classic provides cover for components found commonly in vintage vehicles such as coil springs and cassette players.
Autoguard Warranties were fortunate enough to sponsor several events throughout the year to support our Dealer Partners.
Over 2023, we supported Dealer Partner Beaty Motorsport by sponsoring their vehicles in the National Legends Championship. With our logos printed on the 2 cars, we were ready to be seen on the racing track during each event. Well done to Beaty for competing this year and we wish you luck in races yet to come!
Autoguard also made an appearance at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2023 in July alongside Dealer Partner GVE on their stand throughout the festival. Spectators throughout the festival immersed themselves in a world of luxury cars and unparalleled performance exploring the supercars GVE showcased.
At Autoguard Warranties, we believe it’s extremely important to celebrate our Dealer Partners’ successes. We sponsored two awards this year to support our clients who were nominated, and there were a huge number of you! With both awards held in November, our Northern Ireland team cheered on our NI clients at the NI Motor Industry Awards (sponsoring the Aftersales Team of the Year) while representatives from the rest of the UK supported those nominated at the Car Dealer Magazine Used Car Awards (sponsoring the Use of Video award). Congratulations to everyone who was nominated.
To ensure Dealer Partners are receiving the most out of our relationship, Autoguard made strategic partnerships this year to drive innovation and streamline our processes.
By partnering with Bumper, our dealers are equipped with the tools to make more money. As of June, customers can extend their cover and peace of mind for an affordable 4, 6 or 10 monthly payments. Through the integration with Bumper, our Dealer Partners can register customers with their payment plan within only three clicks.
We also partner with Catalyst, compliance training provider, to ensure our workforce and Appointed Representatives are qualified and well regulated ahead of the Consumer Duty and SAF regulations. The partnership of Autoguard Warranties and Catalyst helped Autoguard’s employees develop and enhance their ability and knowledge, and in turn support the dealer partners and their customers.
Autoguard Warranties and it’s employees recognise the importance of supporting those less fortunate and in need. Both specific individuals and the team as a whole, made a huge effort to raise money for a number of charities this year, resulting in over £2,000 of donations!
A big shout out to these 3 individuals who made an extra special effort to make a difference:
On behalf of the team at Autoguard Warranties, we would like to thank all of our Dealer Partners and valued customers for another fantastic year. We’re excited to see what 2024 has in store!
