The plan is underwritten by insurance carriers rated “A” (Excellent) by A.M. Best and administered by a leader in the extended service plan and vehicle service contract markets. PartProtection’s principals include Chris Rand, who has worked within the vehicle service contract (VSC) industry since 1994, and Shawn Lucas, Founder and President of TradeMotion, LLC, which provides one of the most innovative eCommerce solutions in the automotive industry.
