Tracking warranties can save thousands of dollars from the garbage bin.

Warranty recovery is one of the quickest ways to improve your operational bottom line.

Warranty is generally $300–$420 per vehicle during the first 7–8 yrs of life. Fleets of 200 vehicles get nearly nothing in warranty recovery. They should be getting $60,000 to $84,000 annually, according to these figures.

The return on warranty time investment is often as high as 20:1, which makes it one of the more profitable operations in a shop.

So why are so many fleets missing out? The biggest obstacle to recovering warranty is the time investment.

The solution: insights from one of the most recognizable voices in the fleet industry.

Our new white paper, Maximizing Warranty Recovery, is a collection of insights, best practices, tips and tricks that Ron Turley gathered by consulting with thousands of fleet professionals over several decades.

About Fleet University

Fleet University is the home of free, valuable resources to make fleet management more productive. These materials are based on the best practices that Ron Turley developed while saving UPS nearly $100 million during five years as their national director of maintenance in the 1970s. Adjusted for inflation, that figure would be over $300 million today.

Ron had one of the first authoritative voices in the fleet management industry, and his influence continues today. Following UPS, he consulted with over 170 organizations in the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean, Far East, Europe and South America. His best practices became the foundation of RTA fleet management software over 35 years ago. Fleet University continues in the same spirit of improving productivity through attention to details and data, regardless of what software a fleet manager uses.
