CARCHEX Car Warranty review
I had the opportunity to work with this organization to provide an extended warranty for my vehicle. The agent was very customer focused and knowledgeable about their programs. He validated what state I live in and noted that I work as a contractor who travels. The program that he presented was a great fit for my vehicle's age and condition. The pricing was also affordable.
