Glass repair? In the service drive? Profitable?
I was skeptical when I first heard about the program. Luckily, a friend is the service manager at a Honda store next door, and he clued me in on all the details. After meeting Clayton D. Sampson, we were sold, and just three months later have added close to $12,000 to the bottom line in the service department.
The potential is much greater, and we are working to add $6,000-$8,000 per month. Effortless in the business office, they just receive the check. Highly recommended!
I wanted to thank you for allowing me to add your windshield Repair Program to my dealership. Your program is almost effortless to maintain and it really is a no-brainer for our clients. Last month was our biggest Customer pay month in the history of Rock Honda coupled by a record number of Windshield repairs of 366. Don’t get me wrong, I am not giving you full credit for my Record Month, but I can say with full confidence that my service advisors are excited about your reward program and how it loads every Friday on previous weekly sales. Managers may think the extra program will distract advisors from everything else they have to do but in reality, it helps their sales. It’s almost a contagious boost that spills over to other items that advisors don’t normally focus on to sell. Not only are my advisors happier about selling what seems like everything now, but it’s nice to know that there is a program out there that not only are the advisors excited about but that the extra profit goes straight to the bottom line! Now that’s nice!
Good morning Clayton,
I wanted to shoot you an email regarding our companies doing business over the last 2 months.
When you approached me here at Hardin Hyundai regarding your windshield repair program I was somewhat skeptical. I am not one who jumps right in when someone tries to sell me a program and states it is “ CAN’T MISS”. After sitting with you and going over your business plan and the promise to me that you would not let it fail you gave me your word the program would be good for me and my store. Well you were slightly off. It has been great!! The training and the resources you provided us here at Hardin have been invaluable.
I would like to thank you for introducing me to the ARS promise. You have kept to your word that the program would work and it did. If you ever need a reference regarding your program please do not hesitate to use me.
Thank you again for allowing me to do business with ARS.
Good afternoon Clayton,
I wanted to share my thoughts and experiences about ARS not only as a company but a true money making program.
First and foremost the support system and training that goes hand in hand with ARS has been 2nd to none. Clayton Sampson is first rate in a non invasive yet effective training with management, consultants and installers. They keep the system and approach extremely simple and teachable. Simply put , get the product on hand and put the system in place.
Understand the simplicity of it and train your team.
Make the consultants accountable for a realistic daily, weekly and monthly number and stay on a simple, not over spoken word track.
Watch the revenue come in.
It's really that simple. Claim submission is easy and comes with a separate card swipe machine and essentially ARS does the rest.
Clayton I believe you have a home run here and it will only get better.
thanks for your support and help,
Thank you for bringing your program to my store. As you know we have been on the program for only three days and what a difference you / we have made! By the end of today I will have produced enough net profit to pay for the program. Not a bad ROI. The first month out of the box we will have made a net profit of $16,000.00 even with start- up problems that were beyond your control !!

We have been on the ARS program now for about a month. I have to say, this is one of the easiest, legitimate money making programs I’ve seen. Virtually every car pulling in to our service drive has at least one windshield chip, if not more. We inspect the vehicle for any chips and offer to handle an insurance claim for the customer at no cost to them. Most of our repairs have been customer pay. It doesn’t get much easier. The claim form is simple, the Advisors are excited about it, and the company is here training, motivating and rewarding our service department on a regular basis. I just want to sincerely thank Clayton Sampson and ARS for bringing this opportunity to my attention.

After trying on multiple pairs of shoes for my wedding, and countless hours in the mall I found them, “the shoes” then, I had a massive reality check as I looked at the price tag. What the…. $900.00 for a pair of shoes, no-way Jose, I nor anyone can afford a pair of $900.00 shoes in the snap of a finger. SO, I took a deep breath, and decided I would “settle” for a pair of wedges…. I bought the wedges, and could not forget about these darn $900.00 pair of heels. After Clayton and his team came into my work and gave me the opportunity to help my customers and assure their safety, as well as grow my business, and be able to put the cherry on top, and allow my walk down the aisle with my father, to assure I feel nothing but beautiful, walking down in my dream dress, and finally being able to wear “the shoes” due to a simple question, “what insurance do you have.” I am so thankful for the opportunity Clayton gave me, and truly believe that what we offer with ARS is truly a fantastic opportunity for our customer to assure they are safe in their vehicle, for little to no money. Thank you, and I appreciate all of your help in making my day so special, and offering the chance to have my dream wedding shoes.

Just wanted to share my thoughts about the ARS program. Since ARS introduced the program "helping client to save money " by not replacing windshields unnecessary" and it's no cost to client to repair cracks, stars, chips and blisters, most of the time. Most Insurance Companies wavies the deductable. As a Team Captain for TourDeCure my role is to raise money to STOP DIABETES, so I decided to donate the $5.00 I recieve per windshield to help America Diabetes Association. Thank you ARS for making this happen for my dealership and ADA. The children born with diabetes is my focus, my heart goes out to those children, they get a insulin shots daily, and yet kids are getting stronger. It is heart felt to here stories about kids like that. So I decided to give 100% of the $5.00 I am paid per windshield on my Rapid Pay Card to ADA.
My name is Michael Duplessis and I’m a service adviser. I would like to share my feelings on the ARS windshield repair program. When the management explained to us we would be starting this new windshield repair program my first thought was I would be bogged down with having to check every windshield that came through the door. Then I’d have to talk a customer into fixing it. In other words, I wanted nothing to do with this new program at all. I have to say now that we have been working with ARS and I have come to really love it.
First of all the fact were helping military veterans makes me feel proud and like I’m doing something to give back to those individuals that have served our country. I would also like to share how I now feel about the program as a working service adviser who has embraced it. The process is so much easier then I thought. I simply inspect the car for chips and if it has one or some I get a quick authorization from customer. The price on average is so low that most customers give an immediate approval to move forward with repair. Or a lot of the auto insurance companies give authorization to repair the chips and it cost the customer nothing. The chips are guaranteed to never crack out or they get the fee back for life if they do. The new repair process is so quick and easy it makes this whole process painless for everyone involved. In closing, I am happy about this program because I am now providing a service that my customers appreciate and I am paid a nice commission on every single one I do. Thanks for the opportunity ARS…
ARS is one of those systems that really makes you want to kick yourself for not having it in place years earlier. We've had nothing but excellent service and an excellent experience with ARS. It was easy to implement in our service department and it will generate several thousand per month in net income to the bottom line. This is an income stream that we've never had in the past and wouldn't have now if it weren't for ARS.
During my 37 years in the automotive industry, I have had the opportunity to look at many new products and services geared towards helping me improve my business in one way or another. This is the first program I have seen that truly starts to build a trusting relationship between the customer and the advisor, immediately. And after all, isn't that why we do what we do? Customers always feel more comfortable doing business with someone they can trust. Your program is a win situation for all involved. The customer, the advisor, and the company. The feedback we have been getting from the customers has been all positive. I am looking forward to continuing to use your program to increase my overall retention. It was a pleasure meeting you and your staff, and i wish you continued success.
From the training to the launch, this program is everything they said it would be and more. Automotive Retail Solutions customer service has been excellent and our local representative has become a part of the dealership family. We love this program!
Our customers are very happy to know that their safety is our number one priority. As a result they know we are looking out for their best interest in keeping their cost down for future repairs...
