For many South Africans, buying a brand-new vehicle is a major achievement as well as a significant capital layout, and an investment they will be paying for, for at least 3 years.
And while many ensure they have the best value for money in terms of monthly instalments, interest rates and insurance premiums, they may not know that only Cartrack offers the world’s first R1 000 000 RECOVERY WARRANTY.
This warranty is specifically for vehicles purchased through Cartrack-affiliated motor dealers. If the new car is stolen or hijacked, and not recovered, Cartrack will pay out the book value of the vehicle, up to R1 000 000.
Cartrack, the world leaders in vehicle tracking and fleet mobility solutions, launched the R1 000 000 warranty in order to reassure new car owners that our #PeaceOfMind promise is not simply lip service; it’s a promise built on the foundation of our consistently high vehicle recovery rate – currently sitting at 92%.
This recovery rate, which is the best in the world, is the result of coupling advanced tracking and telematics technology with highly trained agents in the Cartrack Control Room, and an elite force of PSIRA-Certified recovery agents on the ground, ready to go at a moment’s notice.
In addition to this amazing recovery warranty, the new-generation technology in all our devices makes use of advanced communication platforms to track vehicles in real time. The units also provide a range of telematics information that drivers can use to improve their on-road safety and security.
The new generation unit specifically allows for Cartrack’s CarWatch function to keep a virtual eye on your car; once parked and switched off, you simply activate the CarWatch function on our app and walk away. When you return to your vehicle, you switch the function off, again using the App. If the vehicle is moved while CarWatch is on guard, you’ll receive an alert and you can let Cartrack know if we should send a recovery team or not.
Through the years, Cartrack has been at the forefront of meeting our customers’ needs, through the development of both new hard and software. This commitment to innovation has resulted in many of our world-firsts, especially that of the R1 000 000 Recovery Warranty.
Cartrack was the first vehicle recovery company to go to market with a cash back warranty, and this escalation is a natural evolution of that. As vehicles become more complex and expensive, South Africans will, now more than ever, want to protect their investments and rest assured that their vehicles are safe.
If you’re buying a new car, speak to your motor dealer about their affiliation to Cartrack and the new generation of vehicle tracking and warranties.
