Global insight gives Auto Expert the edge in Bulgaria

PRESS RELEASE - February 2013

2013 sees Auto Expert International launch the first warranty programme of its kind across Bulgaria; a combined certified vehicle inspection check and warranty package which will be available to all used car customers regardless of where they choose to buy their vehicle.

At the heart of the programme is a simple principle: Every used car buyer should be able to benefit from the peace of mind afforded by a certified vehicle check and comprehensive warranty regardless of where they choose to buy their vehicle.

Over 30 dealers have already signed up to the programme and will check all their qualifying cars using the Auto Expert certified vehicle check and correct all identified faults before providing Auto Expert’s comprehensive 3 month warranty. This number is expected to quickly rise to over 200 subscribed dealers by year end.

Customers who have bought, or are about to buy, a car outside of the registered network simply contact Auto Expert who will arrange for their vehicle to be inspected by one of their approved inspection dealers. If the Auto Expert vehicle check reveals no issues, the vehicle will be certified and the warranty applied.

If the vehicle fails the Auto Expert vehicle check, the inspection dealer will price the repairs and the customer has the option to pay for these to be carried out by either by the inspecting or selling dealer, before having their vehicle certificated and a warranty issued.

The Auto Expert programme benefits from the industry expertise of its core partners:

-     Bulstrad Vienna Insurance Group underwrites and claims manage Auto Expert’s comprehensive warranty. Bulstrad is a trade mark of 50-year long successful history, which has seen it establish itself as a symbol of trustworthiness and professionalism in the Bulgarian insurance market.

-     Balkan Insurance Brokers administer the programme and ensure that the registered network are suitably trained to carry out inspections and are able to declare vehicles as Auto Expert certified under this scheme. Balkan operates in more than 30 offices throughout Bulgaria and provides insurance services and risk management monitoring to over 500 clients.

-     Global Insurance Management brings over 30 years of experience and expertise in the warranty industry and have worked in partnership with Auto Expert and Balkan Insurance Brokers to develop this programme; the first of its kind in Bulgaria.
