PostPosted: Mon Dec 31, 2018 2:36 pm    Post subject: OPC warranty transfer Reply with quote

Just bought a 981 Cayman with 12 month OPC warranty remaining.

I have looked through the policy booklet and it says that if the vehicle is sold to a private person,Which i am then the warranty simply transfers with the car.

I rang my local dealer Porsche Wilmslow to make sure and ask advice.

They said,i wil have to apply to Porsche to get my name changed onto the warranty documents,but i also need the last owner to sign a piece of paper to that affect ?? I was told that all these details are in the policy booklet.

I have read the booklet end to end and cant find anything that mentions anything like this,or address to send any documents too ??

I will have a drive over to Wilmslow with my paperwork to see what they say and point me in the right direction,but in the meantime has anybody been in similar situation and what was the outcome?

Many thanks

A transfer card is available at all OPCs. It only requires the information you've just stated.

Within the policy documentation it's just a piece of paper.

I've just checked my records and the card required basic details about the car and contact details for me. The previous owner just needed to sign and date it.

I can't see anything about transferring it in my most recent policy documentation but I know for a fact that transfer between private owners is still possible.

Hmmm...

I have found the change of ownership form that it in the back of the book.

I thought all the policy details were in the A4 sized documentation that i have.

Cheers chaps.

Alls I’ve done on several occasions (at OPC Wilmslow) is just gone in and said I’m the new owner, and it’s all happened automatically Thumb

Agree

Written transfer was a requirement in the past, but nowadays warranty is fixed to the vehicle. Just pop in to your OPC with proof of ownership and they will sort it out.

Enjoy the ride!
