    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!
    This is a great opportunity to attach other files to allow the detailer not only rouse this form to document damage but to also use it to assist in providing estimates, invoices, and potential future business by marketing a preventative maintenance solution.

    With laptops and tablets the detailer can literally have a vast resource that help keep track of appointments, estimates and invoices all with the same interface.

    I'll be ready to make it available tomorrow. Spent most of today cleaning up and re-organizing the studio after Detail Fest.


    I want everyone to get a copy and then add their suggestions to make it better. And of course, being a Microsoft Word Document you can and should tweak it to fit your specific needs.

    For example, I include a place to list the products you use. Some people don't want to use this portion for a couple of reason, for example they don't want to get that "deep" with the customer. I completely understand but I'd rather leave the content on the page and let "you" decide. If you don't want it you can delete it. If you like it you have it and don't have to "create" it.


    Make sense?


    I'd also highly recommend getting as many other Vehicle Inspection Forms and take the best from each form to create the best form for you.

    I really want this to be a "living document" that is continually tweaked and improved for the benefit of everyone that detailers cars either as a hobby, part-time or full-time.

    Great news, Mike! Definitely wasn't expecting it to be ready SO soon, especially right after DetailFest. Thanks for all you do for the AG community!

    Re: Mike Phillips VIF or Vehicle Inspection Form

    Very nice of you to do this.
    I use the from Joe (I stoled it! Now my conscious is clear) on my receipts that documents everything I find while working on a car.
    It makes you look more professional and customers love that.
    I'm changing my buss. name and need new receipts so I'll use yours and I won't have to steal it, lol.
