The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Mark Govero & Bryan Ponder during an onsite inspection held by a third-party verification company with no biases towards National Vehicle Protection Services.

National Vehicle Protection Services is a vehicle service contract company. They act as a broker for sixteen of the top-rated administrators in the United States of America.

Leads for National Vehicle Protection Services are primarily obtained through outbound phone campaigns and proactive communication to renew contracts. Bryan Ponder stated the following about the sales and services process for National Vehicle Protection Services, "If they decide to purchase a contract we would then within 7 to 10 business days receive the contract from the administrator. So since again we are the broker all we handle is the sale and the cancellation of the contract. Everything in between is handled by the actual administrator. So they will receive the contract lets say within a couple weeks of purchasing the policy and we always encourage everyone to go through the contract and let us know if they have any questions."



CUSTOMER CARE & COMPLAINT RESOLUTION – NATIONAL VEHICLE PROTECTION SERVICES

Mr. Ponder was asked to describe a situation where a client was not satisfied with the level of service they received. He stated the following, "there are often times that while we do everything we can on the front end to explain to the customer what is covered. Unfortunately, not everyone reads their contract and they don’t understand what the difference is between a covered component and a non-covered component. So I would chalk most of that up to contract confusion. They think a part should be covered that isn’t. Other than the claims issue I guess I can’t think of any else. I know that some customers get upset that they have to mail in a letter of cancellation. We have to have one on file that we are no longer responsible for that vehicle. And in the contract, it states this as well. Sometimes people don’t like to have to mail in their letter of cancellation. I mean we do let them fax it or email it if they can but the contract states mail. We are lenient on it as long as we get the letter we are okay."

When asked to comment on complaints posted on Ripoff Report's website Mark Govero stated the following, "we get complaints sometimes from consumers we don’t speak with. And just so you know we are the brokers and we sell to other people and companies. They are our customers though. And whenever a claim does not get paid or something like that so they are more likely to file a complaint without ever telling us but we kind of had it where anytime a consumer wanted to tell us anything we want them to call us. We want them to contact us so that we can try to rectify it because even though we are not the ones paying the claim they are still our customer. We want to make sure that every consumer is taken care of the way they need to be." In order to assure future and current clients, National Vehicle Protection Services is a certified member of the Vehicle Protection Association.

In order to ensure that clients are receiving the best experience possible National Vehicle Protection Services is dedicated to providing clear expectations and communication with their clients. Mr. Govero stated the following, "a lot of things have changed with us over the years. So back in 2012 and before...we opened in 2007. Our core focus I would say 6 or 7 years has been primarily just upon dealerships. We work with dealerships doing their remarketing for them. Before what we were doing is we were doing mail out pieces from a list we bought and mailed them out. And now we speak with consumers of actual dealerships who are our clients. Everything is 1000% customer service."

National Vehicle Protection Services is proud to be a part of Ripoff Reports Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program. Mr. Govero stated the following, "It means everything absolutely everything...we had a lot of years of not exactly putting the complaints on top priority or any issues in top priority. And it is extremely regretful. We did consider changing our name completely just because starting fresh. I mean absolutely every single thing...it is very important that we do not lose any big clients or dealerships look us up and see that our consumers will be treated this way. These kinds of programs mean a whole lot. And they are also good for leads. If we can get consumers calling in from these types of leads as well, of course, it’s a win-win." Mr. Ponder additionally stated, "we also want to be able to earn or gain new clients. And with these complaints that are out there, we don’t want the complaints out there. When we are trying to do business with someone they are going to look us up. Our company mission our company focus is customer experience. We have learned over the years that is what is most important."

NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

National Vehicle Protection Services Bryan Manager, St. Charles, Montana

In 2014 my Mother bought a chevrolet impala from tuscaloosa al., solely in her name. 

On feb. 25, 2015 was checking my 78 year old mothers mail, and found a motor vehicle service notification.

The card said the warranty was expired or may expire soon.

I called the number, told them I was Charles Jay and that my mother bought the car. He, bryan, proceeded to tell me that she had to many miles on the car and that I should buy the warranty now. An argument insued concerning teh facts:  Remember, I do not own the car nor is my name anywhere on the paperwork.

Bryan informed me that:

1. I had to make down payment immediately, while during same phone conversation. If not the price would immediately go up. 

2. He Bryan, informed me of all of this information even though it was not my vehicle.

3. I again explained the money could not be obtained at that moment and could we call back later. He said no, that I needed to pay now.

I then asked for a manager, who's name was also bryan. I angryly explained the situation to him and he attempted to excuse the attitude of the previous Bryan. I began using foul language to the extreme as I/we will never be pressured, intimidated, or frauded without a serious reaction.

I then called the Chevrolet Dealership and they immediately told me to hang up on these frauds. If I need an extended warranty, come to the dealership and they would be more than happy to oblige.

I then called Bryan back, ask him again, how much is the extended warranty. He said the total was 2000 plus. I asked him if he had the paperwork ready. He said he did and was ready to take my info.

I called him a gdsobmfinbastard. That I would come to his office to settle this and would call the bbb, montana st charles chamber of commerce and my attorney.

DON'T PUT UP WITH THESE FRAUDS PEOPLE. WE HAVE TO MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM.

CALL THE BBB AT 5094554200

ST CHARLES CHAMBER OF COMMERCE 6369460633

Had my mother called instead of me, it would have been really bad, resultwise.

The employees have attitudes that need physical adjustments. DON'T LET THEM GET AWAY WITH IT!!!!!!
