What does SideCars do, anyhow?

 

SideCars offers a full suite of reinsured vehicle service contracts (VSC) and reinsured aftermarket products like GAP, Limited Warranties, Tire & Wheel, Key Replacement, Paintless Dent Removal, Paint & Fabric, and Theft Deterrent.

 

Our reinsurance program gives dealers the maximum amount of control and ownership–and the result is the best possible F&I program for dealers. As a SideCars client, you fully participate in the back-end profits of all these products and gain a powerful profit-generating tool for your dealership.

Auto Dealer Reinsurance

 

Dealers love us because we create wealth for them. Agents love us because we enable them to be heroes, while maintaining their profits. CPAs love us because we’re CPA-owned, and speak their language.

 

No matter what service contracts and ancillaries your dealership is currently providing, SideCars makes it easy to switch. Your customers will notice a difference–for the better, because now you’re in complete control of exactly the kind of coverage you want to provide. Every SideCars dealership has its own customized VSC rate chart, making it easier to flexibly compete and still manage for profitability.

The real question is Why The Heck WOULDN’T I Reinsure?

Reinsurance is an absolute no-brainer for every dealer selling 50 vehicles or more each month.

 

Let’s assume you have a loss ratio of 50% and your VSC claims reserve is $600.  If you would knowingly turn away $300 of tax-advantaged profit on every VSC you sell, then you just might be certifiably bat-guano crazy.

What sets us apart?

Lowest Admin Fees in the Industry

3 ways an administrator charges for their services:

 

  1. Per contract admin fee. This is the only admin fee we charge you, and we are very competitively priced.
  2. Ceding fee and premium tax. We include them as part of our unique “all-in-one” admin fee.
  3. Loss adjustment expense (LAE) charged on all claims. We will never charge you this fee to pay claims with YOUR OWN MONEY.

Complete Transparency

  1. Our custom technology provides you with a full accounting of exactly where your money is—at any time.
  2. We do not delay any of your funds.
  3. Our agreements have zero hidden fees or ‘gotchas’.

Control of the Money

  1. Use your own investment advisor, or use one of our proven banking partners to make the most of your SideCars reinsurance program.
  2. We negotiated the best possible investment policy statement, giving you more options for growth.
  3. We make it simple for you to take a shareholder loan for any purpose against eligible reinsurance premiums, using flexible terms and rates.

We’ve got the secret sauce.

SideCars Reinsurance Secret Sauce

What’s the secret sauce of SideCars?

The fact that we love what we do, and our passion comes through in your favor. We’ve spent a lot of time creating the best possible F&I program for both dealers and agents, and we’re proud of it. Have more questions?

The SideCars Dashboard App

Every customer deserves an app that makes it easy to locate the contracts and terms for the F&I products they buy.

 

SideCars takes it several steps further by giving your customers the ability to easily file claims and get assistance right from their phone. Lots of administrators have basic apps nowbut ours provides true value through two-way communication.

 

We’ve spent the last 5 years perfecting the best reinsurance reporting platform available.

 

Our custom reinsurance platform, SideKick, allows you to access full cession statements 24/7–there’s never any guesswork on your part.

 

SideKick also gives you an easy-to-read dashboard that shows you exactly where your reinsurance funds are at in the workflow. Our transparency into this process is unmatched.

 

SideCars is proud to partner with the only truly cloud-based contract rating software platform available: PCRS, from PCMI.
