    INSTRUCTION:

    NOTE: The following information is required to be detailed on each Repair Order. Any items or information not pre-written by computer must be printed as neatly as possible on the

    Repair Order. Any added jobs MUST BE SIGNED BY THE CUSTOIMER. This is a legal record and hence is the most important document in the Service Department. This information will allow accurate "checking in" of Repair Orders, and will in turn, assist in future

    mail out programs, follow up etc. 1. Name: Write full name - correct name and spelling of surname:

    e.g. Mr./Mrs./Ms/Dr The same applies to business vehicles/customers.

    2. Address: Fill out in detail and include postcode. 3. Vehicle details:

    the event of raising warranty claims. 4. Delivery Date: Must be put on ALL Repair Orders from which a Warranty Claim may be raised to

    confirm vehicle is in warranty. This includes Vehicle Warranty and Extended Policy Warranty.

    5. Selling Dealer: Important from a Company point of view. When in a visiting owner situation ensure

    Details are added. Otherwise add our Dealer Code. 6. Kilometres: It is of the utmost importance to record kilometres covered for warranty, retail, and

    internal jobs. Apart from qualifying a vehicle for warranty, it is also the starting point for Parts Warranty. Make sure that km is updated on check in.

    7. Time In and Out: A most important detail providing information for daily planning. These times can be

    used for future reference in the event of later disputes with customers in relation to down times, etc. Please alter time in on repair order if different to owner's actual arriving time.

    INSTRUCTION:

    8. Contact Name, Phone: Very important in the event of additional work authorisation, early or late

    finishes times and follows up. Ask owners for all phone numbers - ie.work, after hours, mobile phone etc.

    9. E- Mail address: Ensure that all e-mail addresses are noted on the repair order. Very

    important for future contact, recalls etc. 10. Problem Description: Number the problems on LH side of repair order. Give a proper description of the problem - ask the questions what, when,

    how, and why? Avoid Front Wheel Alignment! Add tyre wear, pulling, noisy etc, whatever is applicable. Avoid Coolant leaking ask When, where, how?

    Always write the customer's description of the problem, not what you have

    dreamed up in your 5 seconds of diagnosis. Write the problem so that a first year apprentice can understand it. Imagine that you will not be able to get the customer on the phone -so you

    will need all the information now! Designate whether (C) Customer, (W) Warranty, (INT) Internal, (F/S) First

    Service, (P/W) Parts Warranty, (GW) Goodwill, (WDO) Work done over repeat, (WP) Workshop Policy etc on the RH side of the repair order.

    technician. 11. Parts Warranty: If parts warranty, previous repair details are to be entered on the repair

    order. Mileage, Previous Repair order, date, Invoice etc.

    12. Payment of Repair: If cash, customer must be told when leaving vehicle and a tick placed in the cash area or credit card area so that anyone releasing the vehicle knows the situation. NB. A perfect time to ask this question is when the customer is asked to sign the repair order, as in item 13 below. Cheques are not accepted. No vehicle is to leave the service department unpaid without express permission from the Service Manager.

    13. Owner's Signature: Repair orders must be signed for reasons including: Authorisation to perform repairs, Authenticity, Proof for Manufactures, and further disputes. 1. Add any extra items that the Customer has asked for at this stage or

    RESPONSIBILITY: Service Advisors

    INSTRUCTION:

    14. Other matters to consider:

    1. Estimate the repair cost and advise Customer. 2. Define the problem accurately by noting symptoms and operating conditions on the repair order.

    Avoid "check brakes - see me", etc. This can be confusing when following up or compiling claims.

    3. After the customer states their immediate needs (pre booked items), see if they have others and record them. At this stage, each add on repair must be individually signed by the Customer. If a repair is sold during the day in the Customers absence, ensure that the add on repair item is signed when the Customer picks up their vehicle.

    4. Review the customers history file to sell any "extra needed service - coolant change etc, and to

    substantiate repeat repairs. If applicable, on repeat repairs attach a copy of the previous repairs to allow the Technicians to gain the complete history.

    5. Mark all come back" and customer "waiting" repairs for special handling and follow up with the

    appropriate colour dots. Yellow for repeat Red for warranty Blue dot for loan car.

    6. Where problem definition or diagnosis is required, get assistance from the Quality Controller to pre-check or road test the vehicle with the owner or driver.

    7. Advise the owner when and how to pick up their vehicle.

    8. Direct the customer to the waiting room or to transportation, where required.

    9. In the case of abuse, complaints, etc. which you cannot handle, take the customer to the Service

    Manager to resolve the issue.

    10. In case the customer mentions an accident, always call the Service Manager before writing the repair order. A legal situation may be involved.

    11. Ensure in and out times are staggered to create an even flow of work in and out of the workshop.

    Avoid "FLOOD GATE" situations in the morning and at night.

    12. Always show the customer to their vehicle - avoid at ALL times "the car is over there", or "it's out the side" syndrome.

    13. No vehicle is to leave the Service Department if it is in an unsafe or illegal situation. Example: Fuel Leak, no or poor brakes/steering etc.

    14. ALWAYS PUT YOURSELF IN THE CUSTOMERS SHOES.
