KANSAS CITY, MO (June, 2009) Arrow Truck Sales, Inc., North America’s leading pre-owned truck source, announces an unprecedented 4-year / 400,000 mile comprehensive engine warranty option on pre-owned units. This program provides extended protection for the equipment purchaser who wants to take the worry out of buying used. With the addition of this new coverage plan, Arrow now offers the widest coverage of extended warranties for medium and heavy duty trucks in the industry.
Unlike other used truck warranties in the marketplace, Arrow’s warranty includes full coverage (not just major components) during the entire 4 year period. In fact, Arrow’s warranty option is longer than many manufacturers’ standard new truck engine warranty. This new extended warranty plan is available on 2005 and newer Volvo VNLs with less than 500,000 miles.
“Arrow Truck Sales continues to be a true innovator and cutting-edge leader in the used truck industry,” said Carl Heikel, Arrow’s President and CEO. “We have continually led the charge in providing extended warranty options to the used truck buyer. Buyer satisfaction, and exceeding our customers’ expectations, have truly been the key to Arrow’s success in the industry for nearly 60 years.”
“We have always led the industry in this area,” said Lee Wallace, Arrow’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We began including a free 30-day warranty on our trucks in 2003 and started offering a 3 year/300,000 mile warranty program in 2007. Today, we offer an extended warranty that’s unmatched by any of our competitors. Our goal is take the worry out of buying used equipment.”
