The plans are easy-to-sell and implement, with service and warranty products available for one, three or even five years.

With 25 years experience, RepairMaster offers end-users greater peace of mind, giving dealers an effective marketing tool to secure more high-end projects. Consumer benefits include:

> Up to five years of coverage
> Fully insured for parts and labor
> Toll free number
> Nationwide service network
> Repair or replace promise
> No deductible or hidden costs

“The addition of RepairMaster to AVAD’s lineup equips our dealers to make more money on each project, while offering their customers the best product protection available on the market,? said John Soumbasakis, senior vice president of Ingram Micro and president of AVAD. “RepairMaster protects customers – and keeps them happy with our dealers.?

RepairMaster products are flexible to fit just about any project, ranging from plans that cover individual audio/visual components (such as LCD flat panels, Plasma TVs, and projectors) to more comprehensive plans that protect an entire home theater setup or security system.
