OUR JOURNEY

Knowing that something had to be done about the negative connotation that was so readily associated with the car buying and servicing experience, Founder Larry Dorfman set out to change the paradigm in 1984: create ultimate peace of mind with premier driver benefits, and superior customer satisfaction starting from the vehicle purchase, through the span of the vehicle ownership, and back to the next vehicle purchase. The idea soon turned into a business concept that worked, and in the early 1990’s, Automobile Protection Corporation (APCO) and its EasyCare brand became recognized on a national scale.

Today EasyCare is part of the APCO Holdings family, and is a leading marketer and administrator of automotive aftermarket products sold throughout the United States. With more than 35 years of experience, we offer a full suite of driver F&I benefits, innovative dealer services and industry-leading customer service. We proudly hold an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, and our benefits are the industry’s only MotorTrend Recommended Best Buy. APCO Holdings’ majority shareholder is Toronto-based Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, Canada’s largest single-profession pension plan.
