Additional Complaint Information

The BBB, with the cooperation of Endurance Warranty Services, has found that a pattern of consumer allegations have arisen.

In their complaints, consumers allege that:

Endurance Warranty Services refuses to honor contracts and pay for consumers’ claims. Some of these consumers then attempted to cancel their policies, but did not receive a refund.

The business responds to consumers stating that their complaints should be directed to the obligor/administrator of the contract, with the majority of responses mentioning Interstate National Dealer Services (INDS).

On January 07, 2016 Endurance Warranty Services informed the BBB of the following procedures they have in place to assist consumers with these concerns:

Endurance Warranty Services states that Endurance Dealer Services (EDS) is rolling out a high mileage plan within the next two weeks.

As far as cancellation of policies, Endurance Warranty Services claims all references in the INDS contract regarding cancellation of the contract instruct the customer to contact the Administrator (INDS).

Lastly, in order to ease any consumer frustration with waiting on their refund, for any INDS contract denial where the customer wants to cancel the contract, Endurance will refund the customer within 5 business days and wait for reimbursement to Endurance from INDS.

Per an April 8, 2016 review of newly closed complaints, the BBB found that although Endurance Warranty Services provided procedures detailing how they intended to address consumer concerns, the pattern of consumer allegations has continued. The BBB will continue to monitor complaints against the business.


***Endurance Warranty Services met with the Better Business Bureau July 11, 2016*** The business provided additions to the current procedures to help alleviate the pattern of consumer allegations.  The BBB has determined that the business is making a good faith effort in resolving the underlying concerns by implementing updated customer experience practices, including, but not limited to:


- Additional Customer Service Department Hours - EWS offers customer support via phone Monday - Friday 9:00am - 5:00pm CST and has recently added Saturday customer support hours 11:00am  3:00pm CST


- Implemented an online Helpdesk to provide expedient support and resolution to questions and concerns


- Internal Call Quality Control Procedures

The BBB will continue to work with and monitor EWS to ensure these new methodologies are followed.  The business is proactively working to meet the BBB Code of Business Practices agreed upon as an Accredited Business.
