Services Commitment

Parts when promised — or we pay.

As part of our Services Commitment in a CVA, your maintenance and common repair parts will be available when you need them. If they’re not, we’ll help cover costs by giving you a Cat® Prepaid Credit for the value of the late parts, up to $1,000. Below, find answers to frequently asked questions regarding the CVA Services Commitment.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How Does It Work?

    When you place your order for parts we’ll ask you for a need-by date. If you don’t indicate a need-by date, it will default to the day the order is placed. If the parts you need are regular maintenance parts and are not available within 24 business hours of your need-by date, you’ll receive a Cat Prepaid Credit for the value of those parts, up to $1,000. If the parts you need are repair parts and they are not available within 48 business hours of your need-by date, you’ll receive a Cat Prepaid Credit for the value of those parts, up to $1,000.
