We carry the Chilton Labor Guide also know as: Chilton Flat Rate Manual, Auto
Labor Rate Manual or Truck &
Van Labor Guide. The
Chilton Labor Estimating Guide Manuals are accepted by most insurance
companies and are available in Hardcover and CD-ROM versions. Each manual covers
both Domestic & Import Cars, Light Trucks, Vans & SUV's.
Chilton's editors consider warranty times, component locations, component
type, the environment in which technicians work, the training they receive, and
the tools they use when calculating a labor time for the labor guide. To allow
for vehicle age, operating conditions, and type of service, the Chilton Labor
Guide provides standard and severe service times, plus OEM warranty times.
Vehicle makes and models conform to current Automotive Aftermarket Industry
Association (AAIA) standards. Most service writers, and insurance adjusters and
warranty claims professionals rely on the Chilton labor guide.
The labor guide is available as a book or a CD-ROM. The CD-ROM version
of the labor guide has some additional helpful features. As well as looking up
labor times, you can use it to create professional estimates for your customer
and worksheets for your technicians, printing them whenever needed. You can add
the customer name, labor operations & times, prices of your own parts, tax,
overhead, etc. to the estimate. You can also save all estimates with
customer information for future use.
Whether you choose the book or CD, the Chilton labor guide will provide you
with updated Chilton labor times on hundreds of different repair jobs. We

guides for a discounted price. Please feel free to contact us if you need
