Vehicle Repair Law??
I took my boat in for service last week, explained to the owner the problem I was having. He told me they should be able to diagnose the problem with in an hour. The shop rate is $65.00 an hour, so I was expecting them to diagnose the problem and call me to authorize any further repair. I did not sign anything when I dropped the boat off, I though that was a little odd. They called today and said I owe them almost $400.00, replaced two parts plus labor and materials. It seems to me that they would have to call me authorize the purchase of parts and labor time. I am planning to go get the boat tomorrow but will be having a conversation with the owner before I just pay $400.00 worth of repair that I did not authorize.
Any thoughts on the matter would be great.
