Chrome Care Warranty

We are passionate about Chrome devices which means we also know that they break, especially in the hands of students! The easiest and most affordable way to protect Chrome devices is through TRA’s Chrome Care Warranty. With a quick turnaround time of 7-14 days, the TRA Chrome Care Warranty covers drops, breaks, spills, normal wear and tear, and hardware failure. All with no deductible, no fine print, and no claim limit! The devices are repaired by TRA staff members at our facility in Milwaukee. TRA is currently servicing 200+ school districts with an aggregate of 250K+ devices under agreement. Chrome Care is available on both new and existing devices with coverage lengths of one, two, three, or four years.

White Glove

Deploying devices can be challenging and time consuming even with extensive planning and manpower. Technology Resource Advisors, Inc.’s Chrome Care White Glove service reduces the burden on school district personnel and expedites the rollout schedule. The Chrome Care White Glove service includes enrolling devices in the school district’s Google Domain, downloading all current updates to the Chromebook, applying and recording asset tags, providing an inventory spreadsheet for import into the school district’s Learning Management System, and assisting in unboxing once the devices arrive on site.

To receive an offer determination on your equipment within 72 business hours, please fill out the device buyback form.
