Details about the Toyota Extra Care Platinum
Vehicle service contract at Handy Toyota - serving Burlington, VT
As stated on our Toyota Extra Care home page, the Toyota Extra Care Platinum vehicle service agreement is one of the only ways that you can rest easy after a huge investment such as a new or used Toyota vehicle purchase. After spending $15,000, $25,000, $35,000, or as much as $65,000 or more on a Sequoia Platinum or Toyota Land Cruiser, our VT Toyota shoppers deserve to know that minor dings, tears, and other components are covered if an accidental issue occurs; the only downside of the Toyota Extra Care Platinum vehicle service agreement is that they don't make one for every day life!
Here are the different areas in which a Platinum Toyota Extra Care vehicle service agreement can help you and why you should consider buying one for your new or used Toyota vehicle:
Toyota Extra Care Platinum offers unrivaled convenience
What happens when you're on a hockey road trip to Toronto, Ontario, Canada and you get a flat tire because of a nail in the road? Hopefully you know how to change a tire, but what if you don't? Or what if the lug nuts are frozen solid and you find it's nearly impossible? Thanks to the Toyota Extra Care Platinum vehicle service contract you will have access to a nationwide - including the entire United States and Canada - network of factory-trained and certified Toyota service centers at real Toyota dealerships.
Genuine Toyota-trained quality service, repair, and car parts
Would-be competitor's extended warranties and vehicle service contracts may have lower prices, more options, or otherwise vary, although they don't have the most important factor in car repair: authentic Toyota training procedures and genuine Toyota car parts. Let's face it, a small dollar amount's worth of savings means nothing if the repair has to be done twice... and that's not even accounting for the dangers involved in poorly implemented auto repairs and parts.
Protection for you, your passengers, and your Toyota vehicle
When you purchase a new Toyota vehicle or used Toyota car with a Toyota Extra Care Platinum vehicle service agreement you are protecting many things. Not only are you and your passengers not stranded as with the example above or a worse occurrence, but you can protect your wallet from the costly auto repair bills that can accumulate from a single event. A flat tire may just be a flat tire, but it could also be wheel damage, strut or shock damage, and so forth.
Loads of options and customization
When you buy a new Toyota at Handy Toyota or a used car at handycars.com, we don't make you buy a Toyota Camry L when you want a Camry SE, right? We don't make you buy a new Tacoma truck when you really want a Tundra 4WD Truck, do we? Of course not. The same customer-driver rule applies to the Toyota Extra Care Platinum vehicle service contract. You can custom fit the options and coverage choices that make sense to your specific situation, giving you affordable options to custom fit your life.
Travel protection beyond service and car repairs
The ability to go to any authorized Toyota dealership in the U.S. and Canada for repairs as a Toyota Extra Care plan holder is excellent, but Toyota Motors doesn't stop there. With a clause that grants vehicle service agreement holders access to a reimbursed tow to the nearest Toyota dealership you will never be stranded in an unknown location (or known for that matter). Better yet, if you need to stay in a hotel and get some food because of a vehicle service agreement-covered repair, the Toyota Extra Care Platinum plan will reimburse you up to $100 per day.1
You won't have to wait for repairs
We know what you're thinking: sure, food and lodging reimbursement is great, but what if I'm on a strict time table on my trip? If this sounds like you, fear not; Toyota Extra Care Platinum VSC holders can actually get a $50 reimbursement on alternate transportation too! Since your car gets towed to an authorized Toyota dealership, chances are they might have a Toyota Rent a Car center on hand, giving you access to the same great Toyota vehicles you know and love at great rates.2 (Side note: if you were to rent a car at Handy Toyota this $50 reimbursement for alternate transportation would allow you to choose any of our vehicles for a full 150 miles or 24 hours!)
No hassles, guaranteed
We at Handy Toyota and Toyota Financial Services wants to help our customers and make life easier, not more cumbersome. Should any covered work be needed to your new or used Toyota under your vehicle service contract, the Toyota dealership and TFS will handle all the paperwork for you, making everything easier and, ideally, making the event less miserable.
Paying for the plan or payments are a snap
On approved credit, Toyota Extra Care Platinum vehicle service contract buyers can lump the cost into their finance or Toyota lease payments. Alternately buyers can pay a one-time fee at the time of purchase and be done with it!
The transferability of of the VSC adds value to your car
In today's world, vehicles are outdated so rapidly that 3-year leases and 5-year financed purchases are sometimes not even enough; Toyota Care, the STAR Safety System, Toyota's new Entune infotainment system, and perhaps most importantly in the time of nearly $4 gallons of gas heightening fuel efficiency means that a three year old car now seems like a 15 year old car at times. With such a small window of time a vehicle service contract is your best friend - not only will it protect the new Toyota or used car but it adds to the resale value3 at the time of the vehicle trade-in.
