Re: Dealer Service Plans

If the scheme is endorsed & supported by Renault UK, then the monthly payment cannot be paid directly to the dealership - if you live in Penzance, and take out a plan via your local dealer, then move to Inverness - you cannot be expected to drive your car back to your old dealer for a service.

I used to work with Ford, and this will be similar to the Ford Protect scheme, whereby it is operated & administered by the UK Warranty Department. Customer books car into any franchised dealer, dealer contacts warranty to process payment for items covered; dealer gets paid. Customer will have to pay for any extraneous items not covered by the service plan.

Its really no more complicated or sinister than that; no pyramid schemes or propping up Icelandic Banks!


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
