Developing successful warranty operations within a dealership involves cooperation from multiple personnel. We encourage dealerships to bring teams to achieve a better understanding of the entire warranty process.

Customer Reviews

Our customers say it best...

We've undergone some large changes at our dealership, and this was just the training I needed at just the right time. A wealth of information, immaculately presented and organized, ongoing support, and an online resource for just about everything we could need to know. And great folks on the other end of the phone when we can't find what we need. The total package! Thanks for providing such a wonderful experience for me and helping me, my team, and my dealership!!

Jessica - Chadron, NE

I was hesitant to come to the seminar, I don't "Do" warranty - I found the class to be very informative, easy to follow and the training manual is excellent! Can't wait to read through it. Chris, I love your presentation, thanks for making a potential boring topic FUN!

Loretta - Oak Lawn, IL

The class was well-executed and provided real world information I can bring back and apply to my dealership. The information I learned will help me communicate with my warranty administrator. Thanks for a great class!

Chris - Edina, MN

Even though I've been in this business for 37 years, I learned a lot of new information today!

Betty - Lowell, NC

We were able to go back to the dealership and claim an additional $600 of warranty revenue that we didn't know we could claim until we attended.

Dave - Maquoketa, IA

I was most impressed with how up to date the workshop was, and that I was able to ask questions and get answers right away.

Sherri - Albuquerque, NM

The workshops teach you not to leave any money on the table, and not to take any money that isn't yours.

Dan - Vermilion, OH

The class paid for itself in warranty revenue I was able to go back and claim.

I was delighted, it was one of the best classes I have ever been too. The format was amazing, there was information for the novice and the seasoned Warranty Administrator.

Tom - Jacksonville, FL

I've attended jlwarranty Workshops for the last 6 years and everytime I take something away from it that pays for the class.

Janie - Nashville, AR

After attending the workshop I was able to go back and claim approximately $2800 in additional warranty dollars, I would recommend the class to anyone!

Lynn - La Grange, NC

No changes needed to the workshop, the instructor is knowledgeable and helpful.

Devon - Lake Charles, LA

Chris is always informative. I have always learned something new. GM should make this a required course. Maybe some VOD's if dealers can't make it to class. But you learn so much when you are in the class. Two days would rock!

Michelle - Evansville, IN

I always seem to learn something new. Chris always gives a great presentation, and very informative. Been going to this for last 3 years and will continue to keep going.

Renee - Fond Du Lac, WI

We have picked up enough things to more than pay for the class, great job as usual.

Jim - Paris, KY

Very exciting to learn so many new things, I had no idea all the net items that we are able to claim!

April - Sebring, FL

Third jlwarranty Workshop in the last 5 years, the workshop if very thorough and is a great tool for updates, changes and clarifying warranty.

Don - Jesup, GA

The Warranty Administration binder has a ton of information right at your fingertips, no more digging for information. The members area online has lots of tools that I will be taking advantage of namely the warranty hotline. I have attended one of jlwarranty's workshops and was very pleased, it was a great way to get together with other Warranty Administrators. The day the February newsletter arrived I had a claim rejecting for campaign 10332, after reading the newsletter I was able to get the claim paid right away.
