We issued a cease and desist against Charter Warranty Services of Detroit, MI and TracGuard Services of North Miami, FL, ordering both to stop selling protection products in our state without a license.
Both companies were selling motor vehicle service contracts and protection products guarantees but had not registered with us. In Washington state, all motor vehicle service contract and protection product providers must register with our office.
If they fail to do so, they're required to get a certificate of authority to act as an insurer and get an agent or producer license in order to sell their products.
Don't recognize these two companies, but still wondering if you should get a warranty on your next big purchase? We can help. See if the company is registered before you buy a policy.
And consider these helpful tips on negotiating a price and what to ask before you buy.
