What is PermaGuard?


The PermaGuard Claim Process

The PermaGuard claim process is easy to complete. There are just a few things to keep in mind:


Ready to file a claim?


Wait! Are you in the right place?

If you purchased your vehicle from Denny Menholt Rushmore Honda or Denny Menholt Rapid Chevrolet, please use the links below to be redirected to their respective claims pages.



First, the damage that you are starting the claim on cannot be older than 30 days.

If you get a rock chip in the windshield, it's best to call as soon as you notice it so that it can get fixed before it cracks.

If the chip cracks before you call in the claim, no problem! Just call in for a windshield replacement. Call (605) 348-4468 and ask for Bethany, your PermaGuard Specialist.


Second, there are limitations on what will be paid out on a claim.

The amount is set following industry standards for the repair in question. Your selling dealer meets this standard so there will be no out of pocket cost for any repair that is required.

If you live out of state or do not get to the dealer very often and need a claim completed; PermaGuard or IAS will send the appropriate company to you (i.e. Safelite or Stanley Steamers).


Lastly, there is a lot that can be covered with this warranty but there are limitations to what can be covered.

With all the extended warranties purchased at a dealership, there are certain guidelines that must be met for a claim to be approved.

If a claim is denied for any reason, please call Denny Menholt Rushmore Honda at (605) 348-4468 and ask for Bethany. We want to make sure you're taken care of if we can.
