Auto repair estimates are the building block to any repair shop. They are the first thing your clients see before they even get a chance to check your garage. So make sure you create and send proper estimates to your customers.

Vehicle Inspections

ARI comes with a comprehensive list of 30+ check items. In most cases, that should be more than enough to ensure a thorough inspection. However, for those mechanics who want to go above and beyond, we offer the possibility to create their own custom checklists. In addition to that, you can also mark damage reports straight on your device so that’s clear where the damaged areas are located.
