Frequently asked questions

How can I become a WMS Group approved dealership?

You can either complete the contact form with your trading details, telephone us on 01844 293817 or email your details to dealers@wmsgroupuk.com. Your contact information will be passed to the area Account Manager who will then be in touch to arrange an informal meeting. You can then begin trading with us once your dealer account has been approved by our Directors.

Do I have to be FCA registered?

No, we have warranty protection for both FCA and non-FCA registered dealerships. If you are not registered with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) then we will be able to offer a simple solution, meaning you can become an Appointed Representative without any of the cost of hassle involved with self-registration.

Is there a vetting process?

As a requirement of the FCA, we do a basic credit check just to ensure that our dealerships have no outstanding CCJ’s.

What training will I receive?

When you join us, your account manager and our business development team will provide free (and ongoing) extensive sales and compliance training for as long as you need.

Do you have online systems that I can use?

Yes, our online systems are designed to ensure that the policy holder receives immediate cover with us. We also have the more traditional manual forms if preferred.

How much are your products?

Premiums will vary dependent on various factors, such as vehicle marque, age, mileage and claim liability although your account manager will be able to provide you with all of the necessary information.

Are your products underwritten?

AmTrust International Underwriters Limited fully underwrite our mechanical breakdown insurance policies and MOT cover.

How many claims are permitted?

Your customers will be able to make an unlimited number of warranty claims up to the value of the vehicle. We have an array of claim limits available ranging from £150 per claim to the current market value of the vehicle at the time of claim, and you will need to ensure that your customers are aware of the different options.

How much is the excess on warranty claims?

We do not apply an excess on warranty claims because we believe it’s fairer and simpler that way.
