Episode 9 Customer Pay VS Warranty Work

Humble Mechanic Logo

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Today on the Automotive podcast, we are talking about work! We dive into the differences between:

  • Customer pay work
  • Warranty work, from the manufacturer. Think bumper to bumper new car warranties
  • Extended warranties. This would be a warranty you purchase separate.

Many techs have a strong opinion about doing warranty work vs doing customer pay work on cars. There are pros and cons to both types of jobs. This is the Flat Rate video I mentioned in today’s show.

    You need to have an RSS feed of the podcast on this site to syndicate to podcasting services. FYI, don’t put the MP3s on the shared hosting you have since the downloads will be slow. 🙂

    Warranty work is steady and that’s better than not getting paid imo. Electrical issues are usually the reason a shop needs more time.
