The checking of the vehicle’s condition is very important just in case of any disputes over damages that may or may not have occurred while the vehicle was under your care. In some cases, the owner may not spot any damage to the vehicle not until collecting it from you. By having the condition of the vehicle recorded you can proof that the damage occurred before the vehicle was left in your care. If the damage was not recorded there is no way of proving the damage did not happen while the vehicle was in your care. It can cause problems and a bad reputation for your business and may also cost your business money.
