Inboard warranties provide high value to the customer in terms of quality, security and peace of mind. Manufacturers extended warranties are a competitive edge of great worth in todays quality conscious marketplace. If a manufacturer warrants his product when competitors do not, or can warrant his product for longer, or less expensively than his competition, it creates a huge advantage.

By utilizing UA third party administration, the manufacturer does not carry claim reserves for warranty coverage on its books. This approach lowers the manufacturers overall cost for reserves (because UA can do it less expensively), reduces the overall company risk exposure, and eliminates the company liability in covering the product. This strategy significantly enhances the manufacturers bottom line.

Ongoing, UA efficiently manages the contracts, premiums and reserves, call center, customer service, and claims processing. Years of actuarial experience assure low insurance risks that result in attractive profits for the underwriters.
