Customer Support Agreements

Get more work done at a lower cost

Customer Value Agreements

Every piece of Cat® equipment is designed and built to provide maximum productivity and operating economy throughout its working life. Your Cat dealer can help you maintain that built-in value through a Customer Value Agreement (CVA).

What is a Customer Value Agreement?

A CVA is any arrangement between you and your Cat dealer that helps you lower your cost per unit of production. Agreements are tailored to fit your business needs and can range from simple Preventive Maintenance Kits to sophisticated Total Cost Performance Guarantees. No matter which option you choose, you can be assured that your Cat dealer will provide you with careful planning and ongoing attention that will help you succeed.

When you have a CVA with your Cat dealer, you have more time to do what you do best – run your business. Trained dealer technicians assist you by maintaining your equipment and driving down operating costs. In the end, everyone's goal is the same: helping you get more work done at a lower cost.
