SAFEGUARDING VEHICLE OWNERS
WITH THEFT Protection
The last thing we want to hear is that someone’s car has been stolen and they didn’t have the right amount of vehicle theft insurance coverage to protect them. The losses and costs incurred by being without a vehicle for an extended period of time, can be significant. For this reason, we created our Automotive Theft Protection Membership program to protect customers when unforeseen events like vehicle theft occurs.

EXCLUSIVE MEMBERSHIP ADVANTAGES
Our automotive theft protection membership comes with added value for your customers that they wouldn’t receive from regular car theft insurance coverage. We understand that insurance companies don’t always do everything needed to help your customer get back on track after having their vehicle stolen. For this reason, we offer these exclusive membership advantages to help your customers in the event of a non-recovered theft.
|STOLEN + NOT RECOVERED|
Maximum Aggregate: $6,000
Up to $5,000 towards the purchase of a Replacement Vehicle
In the event the customer’s vehicle is stolen and not recovered and thereby deemed a total loss by the customer’s primary insurance carrier; this membership program makes a great addition to their existing Auto Theft Insurance Coverage. Customers will receive a $5,000 in-store member credit towards the purchase of a new vehicle at their original selling dealership, a rental car to drive while they are waiting on a new vehicle, trip interruption coverage to help cover the costs incurred by losing a vehicle in the middle of a trip, and accommodations, so they have a place to stay.
We understand that being without a vehicle for an extended period of time can create some hardships for the customer. For this reason, we have gone to great lengths to ensure they are covered every step of the way and that they have the financial assistance available that is needed to get them into a new vehicle.

Deductible Reimbursement (for repairs)
If the customer’s vehicle was stolen and recovered, this membership program will also help the customer recover and recondition their vehicle as well. The included $1,000 deductible reimbursement from in-store member credits is a great way to get the vehicle inspected and any damages that have arisen from the theft repaired at the original selling dealership. The one-way airfare and accommodations benefits ensure the customer can easily get where they need to go to recover their stolen vehicle.
The aim of this membership program is to ensure the members are covered from start to finish from the moment their vehicle is stolen until the moment the dealership hands over a new set of keys, or better yet, their vehicle has been recovered. We’re here to protect your customers from the unexpected.

GET THE FAQs
Does the automotive theft protection in this membership program replace the need for auto theft insurance coverage?
No. This membership is not to be used in place of auto theft insurance coverage from a primary insurance policy. This membership program has been designed to cover the costs incurred by the customer that are associated with having their vehicle stolen. Think of it as bonus coverage that helps cover additional costs that a primary insurer would not cover when a vehicle has been stolen.
When are customers eligible for one-way airfare?
If the customer’s vehicle is stolen and recovered more than 500km away from their home, this membership program will cover the cost of their one-way airfare to the nearest airport and any required accommodations so that the customer can recover their vehicle.
Who is eligible for the automotive theft protection membership program?
This membership program is open to all applicants that are a natural person, a Canadian citizen, at least 18 years of age so long as they are not in a corporation, partnership, or any other form of business entity.
