Help protect the productivity and value of your tree care equipment with the Vermeer Confidence Plus® asset protection program. The program offers the support and service required for a healthy machine life. This helps keep your crews productive in the field.
“Maintenance problems have been an issue for us in the past,” said Michael Joseph, co-owner of Joseph Tree Service. “The Vermeer Confidence Plus program takes all those headaches and frustrations off our plates. We receive the best service and are rewarded with the best relationship. To us, that is priceless.”
It is important to forecast and plan for your service and operating costs. When you finance your maintenance expenses through Vermeer Confidence Plus, you can plan for a fixed cost upfront — and find peace of mind. Bundle the asset protection plan into the initial finance or lease of new equipment to help manage out-of-pocket expenses. You can also add it anytime within the standard, one-year manufacturer warranty period.
“I am a firm believer in [Vermeer] Confidence Plus. We know we are not going to have some astronomical bill because part xyz failed,” said Robert Levar, outside sales at American Rental.
Pros like you often travel to remote worksites. With coverage that travels with you, the Vermeer Confidence Plus program has you covered. Plans are honored at all participating Vermeer dealers.
Enhance fleet management
“It is really important for us as a business to have something like [Vermeer] Confidence Plus because we know our cost going into that asset. It helps us to choose how many of a certain product line we want to buy. We can buy on the front end and we know there are no hidden costs. That is really important to us as we grow with our customers,” said Brad Kniep, director of operations at American Rental.
Machines are professionally maintained and inspected for optimal performance. Vermeer dealers monitor maintenance intervals and perform the service. As a result, customers can concentrate on completing jobs and trust their tools are being professionally maintained by the Vermeer dealer network.
“Once you factor in buying filters, buying all the oil and then your labor, it’s a brilliant plan. It’s a no-brainer in terms of cost effectiveness,” says Joseph. “You will see benefits of the program within the first six months, if not sooner than that. We have records now of all the preventive maintenance done on our equipment and the scheduled hour meters on the equipment.”
The provided maintenance and inspection records add value when it comes time for an upgrade to your tree care fleet.
“When we go to sell this piece of equipment or trade it in, all the maintenance that has been done to care for this piece of equipment is on paper,” said Joseph.
A well-maintained machine coupled with records from your Vermeer dealer provides future owners assurance that may result in higher resale values. In addition, if you sell your Vermeer machine within the coverage term, your Vermeer Confidence Plus program is fully transferable to the new owner.
Choose your plan
The Vermeer Confidence Plus program is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Different plan options allow you to tailor a solution that best fits your needs. Standard limited, base or premium coverage options are available to help you manage expenses and have peace of mind. These plans are honored by all authorized Vermeer dealers.
The standard limited warranty covers one year or 1,000 hours with parts and labor included. Coverage is measured from the original new equipment limited warranty start date.
The Vermeer Confidence Plus program base coverage option extends coverage to two years/2,000 hours or three years/3,000 hours of coverage from the original warranty start date based on customer choice.
Vermeer Confidence Plus premium program coverage is the most comprehensive option. It includes two- or three-years of coverage based on customer selection from the original start date with unlimited hours on qualifying equipment. One thousand hours of planned maintenance intervals (performed every 250 hours) are standard with Vermeer Confidence Plus premium program. This helps keep your machine operating at peak performance, along with detailed machine inspections completed during each planned maintenance visit. Additional planned maintenance intervals can be added to the package in 1,000-hour increments. Limited travel (up to $200 at $1/mile) and diagnostic time (up to three hours) are covered on warrantable failures for the duration of the Vermeer Confidence Plus premium program plan.
Keep used machines productive
If your business depends on used equipment, Vermeer still has you covered. The pre-owned Vermeer Confidence Plus program can help machines remain productive long after their initial purchase. It can help minimize unpredictable equipment repairs and offer peace of mind.
To be eligible for the pre-owned Vermeer Confidence Plus program, a machine must have a comprehensive inspection, which includes hydraulic oil sampling, performed by a Vermeer dealer service technician.
You can customize your pre-owned Vermeer Confidence Plus program coverage term, coverage limits and scope of coverage to meet your needs.
Whether your business relies on new or used machines, the Vermeer Confidence Plus program offers plans tailored to provide peace of mind. Contact your Vermeer local dealer to discuss specific plan options.
