Purchasing an extended auto protection plan is a priority for many car buyers who don’t want to risk shelling out thousands in unexpected car repairs. These buyers are aware that manufacturer warranties are often limited and rarely offer long enough coverage. Extended auto protection plans can also be a great revenue stream for your F&I department. However, which provider to trust with your dealership’s customers is an important decision.
Although the benefits of auto protection plans are clear selecting a suitable partner for your dealership can be overwhelming given the variety of options available on the market today. This is why the ACE Group has sought out strategic service contract and warranty administrators to be able to offer dealer partners a program for any want or need that they or their consumers may have.
The ACE Group recommends Red Shield Dealer Services as one of the best in the industry for providing tailor-made auto packages to suit your customer’s vehicle, driving habits and budgetary needs while providing the best possible coverage.

All of the RED Shield Guard programs have limits of liability of $12,500 or Actual Cash Value, whichever is greater.
