Safe and Sound – sixty point car safety inspection
We include a sixty-point safety inspection, provided free of charge to you along with six other valuable elements worth a total of £500.
A safety inspection typically covers all of the items that are checked during an MOT and is the only way to rule out any accident causing defects, which could put you and other road users in serious danger. The Safe and Sound sixty-point safety inspection includes whether there is sufficient tread on the tyres, the operation of the headlights, oil levels, seatbelt operation and checks for windscreen damage and worn brakes.
Safe and Sound – provenance check and mileage verification
Without a provenance check being done, you won’t know whether the vehicle comes with a hidden past. A provenance check (often referred to as a background check) is the only way to guarantee that the vehicle you are proposing to buy is exactly what you would expect it to be. Please remember for your own sake though, that if anything is flagged as unusual during a provenance check, DON’T BUY THE VEHICLE no matter how good a deal it seems.
As part of the Safe and Sound scheme, we will carry out a full provenance check on the vehicle, which will make sure that it has no outstanding finance arrangements or mileage problems, hasn’t been stolen or written off previously, or has had identity issues by checking for stolen V5 documents, plate transfers, number plate and VIN/chassis number matches.
Safe and Sound – the ultimate car warranty
If your vehicle has not exceeded 6 years or 60,000 miles at the policy start date then you will be issued a minimum six months of the Safe and Sound ‘Ultimate’ car warranty which covers the failure of all mechanical and electrical components, even including wear & tear. Items covered include the engine, gearbox (automatic and manual), timing belts, turbo, drive system, brakes, steering, cooling system, propshaft, fuel system, suspension, wheel bearings, clutch, electrics, casings and much more.
If your vehicle has exceeded these parameters at the policy start date, don’t worry – you will still be issued with a minimum six months of the WMS Five Star car warranty plan which covers all of the above items against mechanical breakdown or electrical failure, but minus the wear & tear cover.
Safe and Sound – rescue and recovery
As part of the Significant Seven, we will provide you with a minimum of six months ‘Safe and Sound’ Assist Rescue and Recovery package to cover you for home & roadside repairs and assistance, plus an onward destination service. The emergency breakdown helpline is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and includes cover for any driver of the car listed on the proposal form with six callouts permitted per year – plus no excess to pay if you make a callout.
Our team of dedicated service engineers will always attempt to attend the scene of the breakdown as quickly as possible with the present average attendance time being 30-40 minutes so you’ll be back on the road in next to no time.
