    Thanks Mike. Your form is much better than the one I'm currently using. Looking forward to downloading the new VIF version.

    Mike I had more time to go back to the original form and have a recommendation. Include an email address and or a cell phone number. I like to send an original picture "the before" when I start the job then "an after" when done. I usually just send a text with picture attachment.

    It also serves to document the original condition in a polite unobtrusive way. It's funny how owners know about blemishes on their cars, scratches, dents etc. Most cell phone pics are pretty high resolution. Not a substitution for DSLR pics but a quick way to communicate.

    Still haven’t seen anyone comment on the point I made earlier. If you are only using this to protect yourself from being blamed for existing damage you are only partially using this template (in my opinion of course).

    The other half is then taking advantage of the existing issues you point out and turning these issues into opportunities to help your customer out by offering them a service that will remedy the issues you point out.

    When showing these issues to a true car lover for the first time on their personal vehicle it can get a little depressing for the owner if you cant offer a remedy... bank on this!

    Great for upselling services and if time permits correct a blemish to demonstrate a solution. Also insurance was mentioned previously and this is key IMO for protection.
