How to ensure your cover stays valid
It is your responsibility to ensure that your vehicle is maintained in a legal and roadworthy condition at all times by following the manufacturer’s recommended service schedule. You should retain service invoices as these may be required for validation purposes.
Keep your warranty valid with our Best4 checklist
The vehicle must be serviced in line with the manufacturer’s recommended guidelines. If you do not have a valid service record book or printed service history of the vehicle, then the first service must be carried out within 6,000 miles or 6 months from the date of purchasing this warranty (whichever comes first). The service must be completed at a VAT registered garage and must consist of the following as a minimum requirement:
- Change engine oil and filter.
- Check oil levels in the gearbox and differential top up where necessary.
- Check coolant level and anti-freeze/inhibitor strength top up where necessary.
- Check timing belt (if fitted), and renew if necessary.
- Brake fluid must be replaced in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendation.
If there is a valid service history with the vehicle, then the manufacturers recommended schedule must be followed. Servicing must be completed at a VAT registered garage and fully itemised invoices must be retained. A pre-delivery inspection will not be classed as a service. If any circumstances prevent the service being carried out at the correct time, Best4 Warranty must be informed immediately by recorded delivery. The only acceptable proof of servicing will be the fully detailed VAT service invoices indicating servicing dates and mileages and/or a correctly completed and fully stamped service booklet. Please retain proof of all previous service invoices for our inspection in the event of a claim. Failure of the above service requirements will result in automatic rejection of the claim and your warranty cover will become null and void.
