(l to r) James MacAlpine of Nationwide and Chris Penn of Warrantech at the PrimeTime! buying show held in February at the Gaylord Palms in Orlando where RentDirect Nationwide members were given a sneak peak at the first of its kind warranty program released this month.
At Nationwide Marketing Group’s PrimeTime! event held in February, NSI Warranty administered by Warrantech, reported the upcoming release of a brand new warranty extension that would give RentDirect Nationwide members an additional year of coverage after their 1 year manufacturer parts and labor warranty expires.
“We are very pleased to offer this exclusive member benefit that can potentially save members thousands of dollars in service costs,” said James MacAlpine, Vice President of Rental & Business Development at Nationwide. “This program is a more profitable solution for rental dealers because it gives the dealer ownership over the warranty so that the product can be rented out to multiple customers and still be covered.”
To date, there are a few rent to own suppliers that offer extended product warranties that can be purchased by the dealer but they are severely marked up and have category limitations.
“Our program covers most major appliances, televisions, and computers,” said MacAlpine. “So, the potential to attract more customers with brand name recognition and increase ticket sales is enormous, and will definitely give our members the competitive edge needed to compete against the nationals.”
RentDirect Nationwide members can register for the program through MemberNet, the group’s online communications site.
