RAC Warranty

Carworld used cars in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire

We prepare our vehicles to the highest standards in the business. All vehicles are extensively road tested, evaluated and appraised during the preparation process.

All our vehicles come with a minimum of a 3 months RAC Maintenance and Repair plan provided by Assurant, with the option to arrange 12 months free of charge RAC Breakdown and Recovery Policy. On average four out of five vehicles are fixed at the roadside by the RAC without the need for the vehicle to visit the garage.

For customers who are wanting further protection than our standard 3 months plan, we offer a range of extended plans up to 3 years which can provide cost-effective protection should your vehicle fault mechanically or electrically during this time.

Despite this, occasionally the unforeseen can occur, and so, should anything go wrong, you can be assured of the very best assistance. Supported by our partners at the RAC & Assurant, help is available 24/7, and if necessary we have a range of courtesy vehicles available to keep you on the road.
