Your Cat® Truck is a big investment—one you want to make sure is protected. No one likes to think about breakdowns and unscheduled repairs, but they do happen, and it’s good to know your options for insurance coverage. We asked the experts at Cat Financial Insurance Services some questions about extended protection for the Cat Truck, and here’s what we learned:
Q: What type of insurance coverage is available for Cat Trucks?
A: We offer Extended Service Coverage (ESC) for Cat Vocational Trucks. It protects against defects in materials and factory workmanship, covering parts and labor charges, and is available for up to seven years.
Q: Are there different levels of coverage?
A: Yes. You can choose from these four levels of protection:
• Bronze covers the engine only, plus towing
• Silver includes Bronze coverage, plus the turbocharger, water pump, injectors, air compressor and diesel particulate filter (DPF)
• Gold includes Silver coverage, plus the transmission and drive axles
• Platinum includes Gold coverage, plus selected cab and chassis components
Q: Cat Trucks are covered by warranty. Why do customers need additional protection?
A: It’s all about protecting your investment and peace of mind. If you’re faced with unscheduled repairs, ESC can help you avoid unexpected costs and downtime. It’s a great way to budget for those repairs and lock in costs up front. ESC is transferable, too, which can help protect the resale value of your Cat Truck.
Q: Why should customers choose extended protection from Cat Financial Insurance Services?
A: We provide the highest level of cost control available. With ESC, you’re assured that repairs will include genuine Cat parts and be performed by factory-trained technicians. That means your Cat Truck will be repaired right the first time, and we’ll get you back to work as quickly as possible. Plus, when you choose ESC, you can be confident knowing your investment is protected by the power of Caterpillar—you’ll get the competitive advantage and reliability you expect from us.
Q: Are there any special offers available for ESC?
A: It’s quick and easy to finance your ESC purchase using your Cat Financial Commercial Account. Your Cat dealer can provide more information, or you can learn more at catfinancial.com/commercialaccount.
