Repair Process

[Sender.Company]'s repair process progresses through three stages as follows:

1. Vehicle Analysis

In this stage, technicians evaluate the vehicle and create a report listing all necessary repairs. This report details any damage or outstanding maintenance required, and includes expected repair costs. This report has been delivered to [Client.FirstName][Client.LastName], and was used to create the repair description and cost itemization in this Contract.

2. Additional Damage

During the repair process, additional problems may be uncovered. In the event that [Sender.Company] technicians discover the need for repairs outside of those listed in this contract, work on the vehicle will cease, and written notification of required repairs will be sent to [Client.FirstName][Client.LastName]. [Sender.Company] will not perform any repairs outside of those listed in this contract without prior written authorization from [Client.FirstName][Client.LastName].

3. Manufacturer Warranty

To maintain the warranty's validity, several automakers demand that only OEM components be used for any type of repairs. Use of unauthorized components might breach a car's warranty. In consideration of the above risks, [Sender.Company] shall not use any non-OEM parts for repairs unless those parts are approved for use by [Client.FirstName][Client.LastName]. It is advisable for [Client.FirstName][Client.LastName] to take the aforementioned risks into account when choosing parts for necessary repairs.While [Client.FirstName][Client.LastName] has the right to select which parts should be used for the repairs, [Sender.Company] also reserves the right to evaluate the consequences of their usage and refuse to make repairs with those parts if they are considered inadequate or unsafe.

4. Labor Warranty

[Sender.Company] shall provide a limited warranty to [Client.FirstName][Client.LastName] for the repairs performed under the terms of this Contract. Following the conclusion of all the above repairs, this guarantee will remain in effect for a term of (number of days, months or years). The [Sender.Company] warrants that, at its own cost and expense, it will make any repairs made in connection with this Contract that are found to be defective during the warranty term.

  2. Decrease in Value: Repairs made using aftermarket parts may lead to increased depreciation and lost vehicle value.

  3. Manufacturer Warranty: Some vehicle manufacturers require that all repairs be made using only OEM parts. Use of aftermarket parts may void vehicle warranties.

In recognition of the above risks, [Sender.Company] shall not use any parts for repairs unless those parts are approved for use by [Client.FirstName][Client.LastName].
