    Pre and Post-Repair Diagnostic Scan Authorization Form

    This diagnostic work authorization form grants City Collision Inc. permission to perform a pre and post-repair diagnostic scan on your vehicle as part of the repair process. By accepting this procedure, you acknowledge the terms and conditions listed below. If you choose to decline this procedure, you acknowledge the repair shop will not be held liable for problems with the vehicle that cannot be detected without proper diagnostic scans. Data privacy – In the process of performing a diagnostic scan, City Collision Inc. will collect important historical vehicle data, including in some cases, the date, time and mileage of when a DTC was created. This information is
    helpful in understanding if a problem is accident related or pre-existing. It is possible this information will be shared with your insurance company. Your acceptance of this procedure grants City Collision Inc. permission to share this information with others, including your insurance company. No personally identifiable information is collected during the pre or post-repair scan.


    • Diagnosing vehicles has limitations. In some cases, modified vehicles may give false DTC’s. City Collision Inc. and
      its employees cannot be responsible for omission or errors caused by the information provided, or not provided,
      by the customer.
    • All work performed by City Collision Inc. will be in accordance with Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM)
      specifications and defaults. This includes, but is not limited to, any repairs, calibrations, integrations,
      programming and set points as indicated by the OEM by way of their designated sources of such information.
      City Collision Inc. is not responsible for any damage that results from, or to, aftermarket parts, or modifications
      from OEM factory specifications.
    • Variations between vehicles, according to the make model and trim level, may limit the information captured
      during a pre or post-repair diagnostic scan.
    • Depending on the condition of the vehicle, and the extent of the damage, and other factors outside the control
      of City Collision Inc. a factory scan tool may not see every system on the vehicle being scanned.
    • City Collision Inc. is not responsible for any changes made to the vehicle after the vehicle leaves the shop.

    While City Collision Inc. recommends a pre and post-repair scan on every vehicle, it is especially important to perform
    these functions on newer, highly optioned, heavily damaged vehicles. Failure to do so significantly increases the risk
    to the vehicle owner and occupants.



    I accept having a pre and post-repair diagnostic scan performed on my vehicle, even if my insurance
    coverage does not pay for these procedures. In some instances, insurance coverage may not be determined until
    after the diagnostic scans are performed.

    The City Collision Repair Process

    City Collision has spent years developing a process that facilitates the quick turnaround and professional results you deserve.  This process includes:

    1. Scheduling of 30-minute Damage Review – We schedule an appointment to inspect and assess the damage to your vehicle and/or provide a written estimate. You will not leave your vehicle with us during this step, but we can make rental car reservations.
    2. Deposit – We collect a deposit for parts, which need to be ordered. Acceptable forms of payment are cash, Visa, MasterCard, certified check or insurance check (properly endorsed by all parties w/ liens).
    3. Scheduling vehicle drop-off – We ensure that vehicle drop-off coincides with parts arrival.
    4. Confirmation of parts arrival – This step avoids unnecessary delays by contacting our suppliers several days before the scheduled parts drop-off date.
    5. Reminder Call – We’ll call you the Friday prior to your drop-off date.
    6. Vehicle Washing & Degreasing – this removes all contaminants from your vehicle prior to starting repairs.
    7. Insurance – We will address any insurance company issues arising as result of any additional repairs required after disassembly of your vehicle. It is not unusual for additional damage to be discovered at this point and we provide any additional documentation your insurance company may need.
    8. Regular follow-up – We keep you in the loop with regular calls to update you on the repair process. We’ll notify you should any unforeseen delays arise and share what we’re doing to address, alleviate or eliminate those delays.
    9. Completion & Delivery ­– The employee who wrote the repair estimate for your vehicle conducts a comprehensive inspection. We hand-wash the exterior, vacuum the interior and contact you for vehicle pick-up.

    Before Leaving Your Car for Repair, Remember to:

    1. Please remove all items and debris especially in your trunk or bed area to eliminate time spent cleaning or moving and storing your items in order to gain access to your vehicle’s paint codes.
    2. Avoid using Armor All type products, which slows down our painting preparation.
    3. Please fill your fuel tank, which is necessary for proper realignment to be done.
    4. Please disable all automotive and audio alarm systems or provide us with the appropriate radio theft codes to bypass them during your repair process. You may wish to write down your radio station settings as they may be erased if the battery is disconnected during repairs.
    5. Please bring all keys with you for locked items such as trunks, wheel locks, spare tire locks, roof rack locks, etc. We will probably need more than a valet key to complete most repairs.
    6. Please bring your estimate information, which should include the name of insurance carrier responsible, your policy number, claim rep’s name and phone number and your claim number. Also any estimates that you may have already have written by you or other parties insurance companies.
