Workers expect their defined contribution plans to play a greater role in their retirement income than annuities.
Selbyville, DE (Vocus/PRWEB) February 02, 2011
The Vehicle Protection Association (VPA), an association formed to promote regulatory transparency, education and accountability for marketing and servicing automotive service contracts, announced today that Endurance Auto Protection has joined the growing ranks of certified vehicle service contract providers.
VPA Certification is predicated on a lengthy and comprehensive third-party audit. The independent auditors are former assistant Attorneys General who are specifically trained in operations audits of marketing firms. They intensely scrutinize the companies to make sure they follow state and federal laws, as well as the VPAs Standards of Conduct.
"Obtaining certification by the VPA continues our longstanding objective of playing by the rules and treating consumers well," said Paul Chernawsky, a Vice President at Endurance Auto Protection. "Our goal continues to be to provide quality vehicle service contracts at prices working people can afford and to offer an exceptional level of service to our customers."
"Endurance Auto Protection has invested considerable time, money and resources to achieve this certification," said Larry Hecker, executive director of VPA. “Consumers should be aware that companies such as Endurance have truly gone the extra mile to demonstrate that they play by the rules and place a strong emphasis on treating consumers fairly."
Companies that complete the VPA's Certification-Audit Program can display the Vehicle Protection Association Certification logo on their websites and marketing materials as a sign to consumers that they are a good company to work with. To date, eight companies have received certification. A full list of certified companies can be found at http://www.vpanet.org/Certified-Companies.
