We’re constantly working to expand our products and improve our customer experience, and we’re just getting started.”
2016 was yet another year of growth for Wholesale Warranties, who continued to expand its reach in the RV community through valuable partnerships and endorsements. The extended RV warranty provider was officially endorsed by major RV organization, Escapees RV Club, and maintains a close partnership with this group to better serve the RV community. The expanding team of RV specialists at Wholesale Warranties focuses on customer education, and matches each individual RVer with the right program for their travel lifestyle and desired level of risk.
Wholesale Warranties seeks to cast a wider net over the coming years by broadening the eligibility requirements for coverage, allowing more RVers to qualify for extended service protection. Further, it is working to expand its product line with new levels of coverage to provide each and every customer with more options for protecting their home-on-wheels. These new extended RV warranty options join 24/7 RV roadside assistance, RV tire and wheel protection, access to a directory of RV service providers and third party RV inspectors to provide travelers with the ultimate peace of mind.
