Customer Reviews

Our customers say it best...

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.

Michelle - Yakima, WA

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!

Angie - Peru, IN

Great information I feel more confident in doing my warranty.

Aaron - La Junta, CO

Great class-reminds and teaches you of the warranty process. Reinforced my understanding of GM guidelines.

Donna - Sanford, NC

I love everything about the class, it's my 3rd one in 6 years in warranty and I always walk away with knowing something new.

Mandy - Fredericksburg, VA

Always a great refresher course!

Mark - Raleigh, NC

Thanks for keeping a not so exciting subject interesting!

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.
