Carrier Transicold, a business unit of United Technologies Corp, has lowered the price and expanded the range of trailer refrigeration units covered under its Certified Pre-Owned Equipment Coverage (CPEC) program.
CPEC coverage, introduced to the industry by Carrier Transicold several years ago, provides a 37-point inspection and major component coverage for single-compartment units. It is now available for units up to eight years old with 16,000 engine run hours — twice as many as before. Warranty support is provided via Carrier Transicold's dealer network.
The program is available in two tiers: a standard one-year/2,000-hour program and a short-term 90-day/500-hour value plan. Parts and labor for engine and compressor repairs and the microprocessor are included, subject to a $500 deductible. Also covered are progressive damage and consumables related to a repair caused by a covered failure.
Buyer cost has been lowered significantly, although it varies depending on the term length, age of equipment, and whether equipment uses the standard or Advance microprocessor controller. There is a nominal charge for the rigorous qualification inspection performed by an authorized Carrier Transicold dealer. Units with more than 12,000 engine run-hours require an engine compression test, adding a small amount to the qualification while helping assure reliability. In preparation for demanding service, every CPEC unit is performance tested and freshly serviced with an engine oil change and oil, air, and fuel filters.
