The popularity of ESPs is increasing as vehicles become more complex. ASA’s guidelines for shop owners include helpful suggestions on efficient ways to verify coverage, write repair orders and submit claims.

“This publication provides helpful advice and answers frequently asked questions about ESPs. This information is intended to help our members have a thorough understanding of ESPs, their potential benefit to consumers, and their potential benefit to repair shops,” said Robbie Addison, ASA’s Mechanical Division manager.

The association created this document under the guidance of ASA’s Mechanical Division Operations Committee and its Extended Service Plan Advisory Subcommittee. Designed to be used as a business tool for ASA members, a PDF version of the ESP guidelines may be downloaded from the Members Only section of the ASA website (www.ASAshop.org).
