Can you transfer car warranties?

By: Keith Barrett

As ever, there is no simple answer with car warranties. The problem comes from the fact that there are so many car warranty products on the market, with numerous providers and many differing terms and conditions.

Not all car warranties are equal. Indeed, the rules governing warranties can vary considerably from one provider to the next.

Those who have looked closely at car warranties will know that the standard of cover promised by individual warranties can vary considerably. Different providers enforce different terms and conditions.

It's exactly the same situation when it comes to transferring a car warranty.

Even if a seller tells you that warranty will be included as part of the vehicle sale price, you'll need to check with the individual car warranty provider to ensure that the car warranty policy can be transferred into your name.

A seller who tells you that it is possible may be doing so believing that this is the case, but you should always check the policy situation yourself.

Similarly, if you are intending on selling your vehicle, then you should check with your car warranty company to see whether the policy can be transferred.

Being able to include the policy in the sale of the car may well add some extra value transaction, but make sure that you are actually able to provide what you are about to promise.

When it comes to car warranties there are clearly no simple answers. Some companies will happily allow you to transfer policies, while others seem to restrict such activity.

There is no rule that can be applied to all policies, so the best advice is to check the policy concerned for yourself and confirm the details with the car warranty company.
