Protect your investment

When things go wrong, modern vehicles can cost a fortune to fix. Labour charges alone can be up to $125 per hour. Your vehicle is likely to be the 2nd largest investment you’ll make in your lifetime. Why leave it without mechanical breakdown protection?

Kick The Tyres are one of the few companies in New Zealand who can sell mechanical warranties on used motor vehicles purchased privately.

You no longer have to buy from a registered motor vehicle dealer to be able to purchase a mechanical warranty on a used vehicle.

Complete Protection

Take out a warranty with Kick the Tyres and we will give you complete protection if your vehicle breaks down. No other warranty company covers more of your vehicle and all our warranties include roadside assistance, recovery, car hire, and your hotel expenses as standard.

Vehicle Warranties Made Easy

  1. Book your vehicle in at Kick The Tyres for a pre-purchase inspection so we can check it qualifies for a mechanical warranty.
  2. Choose how long you want your Mechanical Warranty for – 1, 2, or 3 years.
  3. Fill out the application form. Because you have already had a pre-purchase inspection done at Kick The Tyres, most applications are accepted almost straight away.

Key Benefits

If you’ve got a vehicle at or approaching the end of its manufacturer warranty, or perhaps an even older one (we cover vehicles up to 20 years old and 225,000 km), an extended warranty is a sensible precaution against unexpected and expensive repair bills. With mechanics charging up to $125 an hour for labour and major repairs regularly costing motorists thousands of dollars, the time has never been more appropriate to purchase a mechanical warranty.
