  2. Tell the staff you wish to file a warranty claim and provide them with your service contract number and the adjustor’s phone number—(866) 493-0184
  3. Wait until the dealership gets approval from the company and assesses the damage and costs

Did the Company Deny Your Claim? Submit an Appeal With DoNotPay

Don’t get surprised if your warranty claim gets rejected—it’s a common situation. Companies usually deny first-time claims or prolong the cancellation of extended warranties. Such actions are their way of avoiding responsibilities, but our app has a solution for that too.

Here’s how you can file an appeal in no time using our Claim Warranty feature:

  1. Find Claim Warranty and choose Appeal a Denied Warranty Claim
  2. Choose whether you are appealing against the decision of an extended warranty provider or a car manufacturer
  3. Tell us more about the company in question and provide a digital copy of the rejected claim

Our system will automatically generate and send an appeal letter in your stead. Upon receiving your details, the company will get in touch with you.

You can use this procedure when you want to cancel your extended warranty or appeal a rejected home warranty claim.
