PWI Announces Program Enrichments to Help Dealers Accelerate Business Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

Vehicle Service Contract Enhancements Include Vehicle Reclassifications, Plan Expansions and Product Discounts

Preferred Warranties Inc. (PWI), a business unit of global vehicle remarketing and technology solutions provider KAR Auction Services Inc., d/b/a KAR Global (NYSE: KAR), announces comprehensive enhancements and savings on protection plan offerings, supporting dealers as they resume sales in the face of COVID-19 retail slowdown.

“Many dealers are feeling the pain as COVID-19 takes its toll on the auto remarketing industry,” said PWI President Edmund Field. “To better support our dealers, we’re adapting our offerings to deliver extra value to them and their retail customers, providing more at lower price points to accommodate tighter budgets.”

PWI program enhancements include extended terms and mileage bands to the popular Premier Plan, representing a lower cost to retail customers. Furthermore, the company is reclassifying eligibility requirements of many makes and models, generating cost savings by decreasing class qualifications in some cases, and adding plan qualifications on vehicles never before accepted.

“Retail demand is still recovering, so standing out from the competition will be key to ramping up sales,” said PWI VP of Sales Allison Marley. “PWI’s program enhancements will help dealerships distinguish their offerings from others while bringing retail customers confidence about their purchasing decision.”

To provide dealers with further relief, PWI is launching a promotion offering discounts on some of PWI’s most popular products. From June 1 through July 31, eligible dealers can save between 10% and 15% on Base, Powertrain and Plus extended service contracts.
