Overland Park, Kansas, Jan. 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- What would you do if your car broke down? You might just assume that the manufacturer's warranty will handle it, but it doesn't cover everything. Worse, most warranties offer little to help you manage your life while your car is repaired. Thankfully, a company called Red Shield Protection offers extended auto service contracts to help fill in the gaps left behind by the average warranty.


Red Shield Protection enjoys an A rating from the Better Business Bureau (BBB), letting you know that they are a company you can trust. All of their plans also include valuable extras such as roadside assistance, complimentary towing, travel expense reimbursements, and a rental car program to ease the inconvenience of not having your vehicle available.


Red Shield Protection also offers one of the highest Limited Liability coverage amounts in the industry. All contracts cover up to your vehicle's Actual Cash Value (ACV) or $12,500, whichever is greater. The claims process is also streamlined for your convenience, making it simple to submit a claim.


Let's take a closer look at some of the coverage options offered by the company:


RED Shield Essentials


RED Shield Essentials contracts are short term (three, six, and nine-month terms are available), allowing you to get a great rate while protecting the most important automotive components such as the engine, transmission, transfer case, drive axles, and turbocharger. You can choose how extensive you want your protection to be, making peace of mind affordable on nearly any budget.


RED Shield Guard


RED Shield Guard contracts are longer in duration, with terms ranging from 1-5 years and up to 100,000 additional miles. Everything mentioned above is covered, plus several important features such as your vehicle's HVAC system, steering, brakes, and suspension. Again, you may choose the coverage level that best meets your needs.


RED Shield Select


RED Shield Select contracts are the most comprehensive. They cover every factory component of your vehicle except for the things mentioned in Section V of your contract, subtitled "What Is Not Covered." These contracts are also available in terms from 1-6 years and up to 100,000 miles.


RED Shield Rec


RED Shield Rec contracts are designed to give RV and mobile home owners the same affordable coverage automobile drivers can get with the coverage options above. You may choose the level of coverage that best suits your budget. All contracts in this category include concierge services that provide handy customer support in the event of a breakdown.


RED Shield Motorsport


Finally, RED Shield Motorsport contracts offer protection for motorcycles, ATVs, scooters, snowmobiles, and personal watercraft. You may choose how much protection you wish to purchase, ensuring that you can get the peace of mind you need at a price you can afford.


Red Shield Protection also offers optional add-ons such as tire and wheel coverage, theft insurance for dealerships, identity theft protection, key/remote coverage, and windshield and dent protection. These options make every contract customized to your unique needs, no matter what they may be.
