Diminished Asset Protection
Innovative Dealer Product – Diminished Asset Protection
Accidents can frequently reduce the value of a vehicle, even if the vehicle has been repaired. Often referred to as diminished value, it could negatively impact a customer’s ability to purchase their next vehicle. A solution to this problem is for a dealer to incorporate Diminished Asset Protection (DAP) into their offerings. Such a program can protect customers in case of a vehicle collision accident by providing up to a $5,000 credit towards their next vehicle purchase or lease from the original selling dealer.
CSO has partnered with Safe-Guard Products, the largest provider of protection products in the Finance and Insurance industry, to offer Diminished Asset Protection (DAP).
