A broken-down car is always frustrating, especially when it’s a new purchase.
It seems to happen at the worst possible time – whether you’re running late to work or on your way to pick up the kids from school. And the worst part? A broken vehicle takes a heavy toll on your pocketbook. Fortunately, there are numerous ways to prevent a broken down car and keep yourself safe on the road.
The DriveTime difference is defined largely by our DriveCare package, which includes the AutoCheck history report and multipoint inspections. The AutoCheck history report is notably more comprehensive than alternative options, especially when it comes to vehicles come from an auto auction. With the AutoCheck report, you’ll receive exclusive auction data, vehicle data by Experian, and a report that’s used at over 90 percent of all automotive auctions across the nation.
Coupled with the AutoCheck report is our multipoint inspections process, which inspects the vehicle inside and out, from top to bottom. The DriveCare package ensures that your new vehicle is ready to hit the road and last you for years to come. We insist that all safety systems are in pristine condition, that the engine meets mechanical specifications, and that every factory-option is working like new.
Through our DriveCare package, you can protect yourself from a broken down vehicle before even leaving the lot, by knowing that you’re purchasing only a quality car. Even if you buy an excellent used car, though, mishaps do happen and it’s important to be prepared. By adding a protection program you can drive with confidence for years down the road.
As you purchase auto insurance, consider the following:
- How much coverage you need. Before you can find the right auto insurance to protect your car, it’s critical to determine how much coverage you need. Each state has its own regulations for minimum insurance requirements, but you can purchase more as your budget and needs dictate.
- Driving record. If you can’t remember the last time you got a speeding ticket or were involved in an accident, now is the perfect time to get insurance quotes, as you’ll find the best deals possible. Feel free to solicit competitive quotes from multiple sources so you can truly find the best deal on the market.
- Investigate the company. Not all insurance companies are created equal. By assessing the insurance company’s track record, you can be sure that your insurance policy will be there to help you when you need it.
- The policy. Instead of signing a policy on the spot, take it home and review the terms. The more patient you are during the process of purchasing coverage, the more likely you are to find a better deal. Quickly signing a policy could prevent you from finding something that suits you better.
At DriveTime, we’re passionate about helping you find your dream car for the most affordable price. We even let you search vehicles online so you can research the prices and specifications before visiting a dealership.
Remember, the best protection plan you can have for your vehicle is ensuring that you’re purchasing one of great quality.
