Do You Have to Pay for an Unauthorized Repair?
Before a repair shop begins work on a repair that may exceed $50, a repair shop representative must prepare a written statement that describes the repairs and obtain authorization from the customer that he or she wants the repair to be done.
Valid repair orders must contain information such as:
- The repair estimate
- Anticipated completion date
- A description of the repairs
- Notice that the customer is entitled to inspect components used on the repair
