Customer requests Repair Facility to make repairs to Customer’s vehicle. Customer expressly represents to Repair Facility that Customer has the lawful right to authorize repairs to be made to the Vehicle, whether by right of ownership, leasehold interest, or direct authorization from the owner of the Vehicle. Customer authorizes Repair Facility to repair Vehicle and further authorizes Repair Facility to move, test drive, or otherwise operate the Vehicle for purposes of repairing the Vehicle and determining its functionality and safety. Customer also acknowledges that any data or documentation pertaining to the damage analysis or repair belong to Repair Facility and Customer authorizes Repair Facility to utilize or disclose information related to the Vehicle or repair in any way Repair Facility chooses.
Customer agrees to pay Repair Facility for actions undertaken on Customer’s behalf, including the cost of parts, labor, taxes, fees, services, diagnostic testing, administrative charges, and other charges that may involve costs for towing, parking, and/or storage (“Repair Costs”). Repair Facility will provide Customer with a final invoice reflecting charges for activities relating to Customer’s Vehicle, any proceeds or payments received for the Repair Costs, and any outstanding balance which must be paid by Customer prior to the release of the Vehicle.
Damage Analysis. Customer agrees to pay for repairs to the Vehicle specified by Repair Facility’s analysis of damage, expected repair cost, and repair plan (“Damage Analysis”), a copy of which has been provided to Customer and is incorporated herein by reference, as may be required by law, and discussed with and approved by Customer prior to the performance of repairs. Customer acknowledges that any estimate (“Estimate”) prepared by or for an insurance company is solely for the insurer’s internal cost-estimating purposes and has no impact on decisions Repair Facility will make to properly and safely repair Customer’s Vehicle.
Additional damage may be discovered and the need for additional repairs not included on the Damage Analysis may become necessary during the course of repair. In that event, Repair Facility will promptly notify Customer of the additional repairs necessary to be made to the Vehicle and the expected cost. Repair Facility may provide a supplemental Damage Analysis or may incorporate the additional repairs into a revised version of the original Damage Analysis.
Customer agrees that Repair Facility is the sole professional determiner of the necessary and proper method for repairing Customer’s Vehicle and Customer is the only person/entity with whom Repair Facility has any obligation to communicate or has the right to make decisions concerning the Vehicle’s repair. Customer acknowledges that Repair Facility has no obligation to communicate with any insurer and that Repair Facility does not accept any insurer’s estimate as the cost of repair or method of repair. Repair Facility may elect to interface with an insurer to streamline the payment process for Customer, but Customer agrees any interface is solely performed as a courtesy to Customer.
I understand that Repair Facility, in the exercise of professional judgment, will repair my vehicle safely and properly which may involve using better parts or safer repair techniques than those for which my insurer or responsible third party may reimburse me. My insurer or a responsible third party may deny payment for repairs that Repair Facility deems necessary or proper in the exercise of professional judgment. I understand and agree that I will be financially responsible for all repair services provided to me, which may include charges for towing, parking, and storage, as they are listed on the final invoice, even if payment is denied by my insurer or a responsible third party. I UNDERSTAND THAT I AM FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL CHARGES.
