“Don't waste your money”

Written on: 23/07/2017 by SamaraMaynard342 (1 review written)

Avoid these bandits at all costs. They take your money and then use every excuse possible (usually 'wear and tear') to get out of paying for any fault on your vehicle. My turbo completely failed, they said it 'just needed a good clean' - RUBBISH. My Torque converter failed and guess what - wear and tear. So they expect me to drive it until it fails catastrophically, taking the gearbox with it. WMS policies are a pointless waste of money - go with Warranty Direct instead… Read Full Review

Good luck with that - the username was generated by Review Centre because I opted to submit an anonymous review, and if challenged by Review Centre, I'll provide them with a photograph of my 'cover' documents. Reserve all the 'rights' you want; the fact is that you have no right to demand any information from me in relation to this review, otherwise they wouldn't offer an 'anonymous review' option.

Let me assure you, the review IS correct, although it may not be sustainable as that's a stupid word to use in this context. Try 'substantiated' next time.

I don't want you to look into it for me, because I'll get the same rubbish excuses over and over again. Thanks but no thanks.

You've well and truly earned this review - unlike the spurious Revoo score touted on your website, which only entitles people to offer a review once you've paid out on their claim.

Have a nice day.

“Excellent customer service!”

Written on: 23/05/2017 by JezzaP (1 review written)

I had to have a new drive shaft and ABS sensor fitted to my BMW, the total cost of the repair being £420-odd. it was only when filing away the invoice that I came across my WMS 5-star warranty document - I had forgotten I had renewed the policy last year after all, having been undecided at the time. I sent an email asking if the claim could be met retrospectively and was delighted when I received a telephone call only 37 minutes later(!) from one of your advisers, who told me that he had… Read Full Review

Bought a 3 year extended warranty and had to make a claim 18 months in ,call centre open 24 hours per day and was not automated ,our claim was paid out within 24 hours of the work been carried out straight to the garage who carried out the repair so we didn't have to put our hand in our pockets.

“Claim on Extended Warranty”

Written on: 11/04/2017 by MPCLFC (1 review written)

I like the simplicity of the claims process, Jaguar contacted the claims team and within 5 working hours, the claim was approved and the repair had been completed. When I called the following day to process my claim, the speed and ease at which I could submit my claim was second to none. Also, the fact the claim could be processed within 24 hours is testimony to the customer focused nature of the company and really emphasises it was the correct decision to take out the extended warranty… Read Full Review

“A dealers perspective ”

Written on: 08/04/2017 by JAAutos (1 review written)

As the owner of #JA Autos Ltd I have used WMS for my warranties for many years now. I find them very fair with what is covered and what is not. Generally most of my cars come with a 5 star policy (at least a 4 star in all cases) and this generally gives a good amount of cover. As an award winning dealer myself I certainly wouldn't want to tarnish my reputation by offering inferior products to my customers. If explained correctly there shouldn't be any problems and if a customer has any… Read Full Review

Bought my lovely Audi with a warranty from VGS and had to claim some work the service done after 3 months I was a bit sceptical about waiting to get my money back from VGS , been calling them several times , staff very pleasant and trying to help also giving advice for further actions I would like to specify one lady member of staff but seems like I am not alowed , so overall thank you for dealing with my claim in such a short time .

“First Claim for vehicle and not covered”

Written on: 08/03/2017 by ElisaArsenault (1 review written)

I have 4* cover vehicle warranty and was very happy to see that the caliper was included in this cover as it had got stuck. I contacted WMS and was told that the caliper was included and they just needed to speak to the garage to confirm the fault and they would cover the cost plus £45 per hour for labour. However when the garage called WMS they said that as it had 'seized' it was not covered. This exemption was not clearly listed in the warranty booklet provided and I am left very… Read Full Review

“Not worth the paper it is written on!!”

Written on: 11/02/2017 by NinaGunn (1 review written)

I took out a 5 star warranty policy with WMS last year on my Land Rover Freelander. I have attempted to claim 3 time for different repairs, ALL OF WHICH SHOULD BE COVERED ACCORDING TO THE POLICY BOOKLET, but WMAS have declined to pay for the repairs. The warranty is not worth the paper it is written on, each time the claims people find a way out of having to authorise the repairs. You are better off keeping your money and using it towards something else useful!… Read Full Review

“Appalling people skills, mis-leading information”

Written on: 19/11/2016 by Kenneyeq476 (1 review written)

Took out this warranty when buying my used car 3 months ago, BMW 1 Series. Last week the engine light came on, wasn't running properly, no power and struggling to drive it. Took it into a garage that I trusted and they said the timing chain had been stretched. In the warranty booklet it clearly says it covers the "timing chain" and in the terms and conditions says this item must be broken to be claimed against. The mechanic advised me the timing chain was not working properly, was stretched… Read Full Review

Agree. They are completely arrogant and have no sense of what a customer would expect from them. Their ethos seems to be to make the claims process as difficult as possible. The fact they drove you to tears is disqusting.

“**SEEMS TO BE SOME TYPE OF CON**”

Written on: 18/10/2016 by Taliyahg150 (1 review written)

Had the policy for 1 year & 1 week when the turbo went on my car. Following procedure, I rang up and asked for one of their approved garage. I took my car to them who confirmed it was the turbo which was an included part in the warranty. The approved garage phoned to say that no approval was given as "the policy was only renewed a short time previous" I phoned wms indicating that it was a RIDICULOUS EXCUSE & they advised that there had been an oversight on their part and they will have the… Read Full Review

Received my 3 month warranty when I purchased my used Porsche 911, the water pump failed, called WMS and told them of my problem, found them to be very professional and polite. Took my car to my local independent Porsche garage, he called WMS to get work authorised, staff were very helpful and the work required was given the go ahead . Paid the bill on completion and sent invoice to WMS, I received a cheque 2 days later. Great service and fast payment. . Awesome… Read Full Review

“Total waste”

Anything that goes wrong with a car, goes wrong because it is a little bit older and travelled a little bit further than it had last week. Therefore, anything is wear and tear. Therefore anything that goes wrong with your car will not be covered by this company… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/09/2016 by gcapper (1 review written)

Very easy company to deal with. Had a problem with my car, phoned WMS for advice, told them my car reg. number, and said where I would like to take it for diagnosis and repair. Was told straight away that was ok, and WMS would deal directly with the garage. Had my car fixed, paid for the repair, and forwarded the invoice to WMS for reimbursement. It could not have been any easier. When my car was returned to me, the garage (owner) told me WMS were one of the most straight forward warranty… Read Full Review
