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.

Show Notes:

Customer Pay VS Warranty Work ~ Audio Podcast Episode 9

The topic of paying for car repairs is not as simple as it may seen. There are so many sides to the story. You may also be wondering what “Customer Work” is verses “Warrant Work”. Why should the warranty charge or labor time be different than the customer pay? Does that mean the customer pays more than the warranty company? We will look at all of that and more.
