For Your Dealership

Why Trade?

The nice thing about owning a vehicle as opposed to leasing one is that there is no defined term of ownership. The not-so-nice thing is that life moves fast and we may encounter some unexpected changes along the way. A two door sports car may not fit someone’s lifestyle if they have kids. Thankfully, dealerships take vehicles on trade, meaning there’s a cost effective way to quickly get into a vehicle better suited to a specific lifestyle.

What's the Catch?

Although there are many positives to trading in a vehicle, the downside is that your trade-in value can be adversely affected by cosmetic damages. Common issues such as curbed wheels, missing keys + remotes, upholstery stains, dents, scratches, cracked windshield or fog lights need to be remedied before a vehicle is fit for its next owner. Unfortunately, all those expenses fall squarely on you, against your trade-in value.

What's the Solution?

Vehicle Trade Wear Protection programs are now available to protect you from paying out of pocket for repairs before trade-in. This protection is a no-brainer and a huge stress reliever if you find yourself changing vehicles someday.

Don't Worry, Trade Happy!

Coverage Throughout Your Time of Ownership

Auto Shield Canada Road Hazard Programs

It’s nice to know that the customer’s curbed wheels, missing keys + remotes, upholstery stains, dents, scratches, cracked windshield or fog lights will be taken care of for the future owner. Wouldn’t it be nice for the current owner to have those benefits during the time they own their vehicle?

Welcome to the Auto Shield Canada Road Hazard programs!

These Protection programs feature all the benefits of Trade Wear and more! In addition to higher aggregate amounts and coverage, they unlock the ability for the customer to make multiple claims during their time of ownership, instead of only providing coverage at time of trade-in.

Now customers can keep their vehicles looking new throughout their time of ownership.

How does The Auto Shield Canada Trade Wear Program Stack Up Against The Competition?

Chances are, you’ve likely heard of a few Trade-in Protection programs by now. Original equipment manufacturers, and aftermarket companies both offer variations of the product.

Whether it’s a Trade In Wear Waiver, XS Wear, Wear Pass, Excess Wear and Tear Coverage, or Worry Free Coverage, most programs provide sufficient coverage for common cosmetic damages.

However, many of these competitor programs lack flexibility. Nine times out of ten, these programs will only provide coverage at the time of trade-in – meaning the customer is without coverage while actually driving their vehicle.

To remedy this, our Road Hazard family of Protection programs provide the ability to get coverage at any point in time during the customer’s ownership. This means they don’t have to stare at that nasty dent, scratch, crack, or other damage until they trade in the vehicle. They can simply make a claim and have their vehicle repaired. It’s that easy!

Keep your vehicle in pristine condition for a worry-free trade-in expetience.
