autopom! is excited to announce our partnership with RepairPal, a network of 2,600 Certified Repair facilities! Although autopom!’s vehicle protection plans let you take your vehicle almost anywhere for repairs, to make it convenient for you and to ensure you receive the best possible service, we recommend our preferred network of certified shops.

These shops are trained on how to work with your extended warranty and are ready to assist you. Through our partnership with RepairPal, we have ensured that it is really easy for you to take advantage of the coverage we offer. Some customers may even be eligible to have their $100 deductible waived when using one of our certified shops (depending on the Administrator of your contract).

All of the shops in this preferred network are high quality, offering at least a 12-month/12,000-mile warranty (or better), and have high customer satisfaction ratings. In the event that you have basic maintenance or other needs not covered by your contract, they also offer guaranteed fair prices. You can check prices anytime on www.repairpal.com/autopom.

How Does the RepairPal Fair Price Estimator™ Work?

RepairPal says that consumers are usually overcharged for repairs in three main ways: by marking up part prices well above MSRP, inflating labor times for a given job above industry guidelines, and charging considerably higher labor rates than appropriate for the local market. RepairPal’s fair price estimator is a useful tool to help you know what to expect for the cost of your needed repairs so you don’t get overcharged at the repair shop. It estimates pricing for repairs by using parts and labor data from the same sources used by the automotive industry to calculate pricing. This data includes the MSRP (manufacturer’s suggested retail price) for parts, industry agreed-upon labor times, and local labor rates. RepairPal then uses this data in a standardized formula to give you the fair price range for a specific repair.

Add to this the fact that the RepairPal certified network includes more than 2,600 shops nationwide (and counting), and you can see why autopom! is so excited about this new partnership! autopom!’s name stands for automotive peace of mind and that’s why we do what we do. We offer extended vehicle protection plans to give you peace of mind about your vehicle and to help you protect your finances when you have an unexpected repair. With this repair network, we have made it even easier for you to take advantage of the coverage we are offering.
