WILKES-BARRE, Pa. — Vehicle service contract provider GWC Warranty announced a strategic alliance with Nicholas Financial, a provider of direct consumer loans and installment sales contracts from automobile dealers for used cars and light trucks.
Nicholas Financial operates a network of 63 locations in 18 states spanning the Southeastern and Midwestern United States. Nicholas, which was established in 1987, is one of the largest publicly traded specialty consumer finance companies in North America.
“GWC’s partnership with Nicholas Financial is yet another example of our company’s commitment to delivering a best-in-class experience that helps dealers generate strong referrals and repeat buyers,” said Rob Glander, president and CEO of GWC Warranty. “By aligning with Nicholas, we now have a partner to help us in continuing to share the ‘No Worries, Just Drive’ experience we provide dealers and their customers nationwide.”
The strategic alliance will offer both automotive dealers and consumers more convenient and seamless access to quality financing and best-in-class service contracts. Through its established and growing dealer network, Nicholas will now offer GWC vehicle service contracts, providing its dealers and their customers the confidence that comes along with GWC’s track record of paying more than $3.5 billion in claims to date as part of APCO Holdings.
“At Nicholas, we offer dealers the opportunity to increase sales and maximize profits through financing programs tailored to both the customer and the dealer,” said Nicholas President and CEO Doug Marohn. “GWC, much like the team at Nicholas shares a passion for helping dealers create repeat sales. This customer-focused approach to vehicle service contract and claims administration made this partnership a natural fit.”
