THORNBURY, England, Aug. 18, 2011 -- Car Care Plan Holdings, the UK-based subsidiary of Ally Insurance, was named the winner of the "Warranty Provider of the Year" award today by Car Dealer Magazine. It is the second consecutive year Car Care Plan has received the award.
Car Care Plan received the top honor based on feedback from the United Kingdom's largest auto dealer survey. More than 12,000 franchised and independent vehicle retailers participate in the study, which gathers the opinions of providers across a range of products. In the Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) category, Car Care Plan stood head and shoulders above the rest.
"This award is testament to the hard work and dedication of the whole team at Car Care Plan," said Tim Heavisides, chief executive of Car Care Plan Holdings. "We were praised for our levels of support, care and assistance to all parts of the industry and the fact that this was voted for directly by dealers reflects the high regard in which we're held within an extremely competitive market."
Tom Callahan, President of Ally Insurance, cited the award as further reinforcement of Car Care Plan's position as a market leader and the value it offers dealers.
"As a performance driven F&I company, our focus is on helping our dealers improve their customer satisfaction and profitability by offering industry leading expertise, products and service," said Callahan. "This recognition reflects the commitment and dedication the Car Care Plan team puts into building lasting dealer relationships using that strategy."
