Partners - Warranty Direct
Over the last decade, Warranty Direct has been a pioneer in the direct automotive warranty industry, as well as a champion for motorists' rights.
Warranty Direct's market-leading innovations made them the first of its kind to cover 'wear and tear', consequential loss and faults found during standard service and MOT procedures.
As well as providing outstanding and unbeatable 'peace of mind' for its customers, Warranty Direct has always been a proud champion of motorists outside of the insurance sphere, spearheading national campaigns to combat ever-rising garage labour rates and the scourge of this highway - potholes.
Comma's campaign to get motorists thinking more about general maintenance of their cars, and specifically their oil levels via the National Oil Check initiative, fits perfectly with Warranty Direct's general aim of helping drivers save money and avoid unnecessary inconvenience.
Running your car dry of motor oil will destroy your vehicle's engine and can therefore result in a very costly repair bill. Data from Warranty Direct's 50,000 live automotive policies shows that the engine seizure caused by a car running out of oil costs an average of £1,413 to fix, although the maximum potential bill could be many thousands of pounds higher.
Just as there's no need for you, the motorist, to pay over the odds for an hour of your garage mechanic's time, or to pay for damage done by potholes out of your own pocket, there's no reason to incur the costs of running dry of oil.
That's why Warranty Direct is happy to be supporting Comma and Halfords in their National Oil Check campaign.
