Vehicle check-in inspection checklist

Download this checklist to document the condition of cars as they are dropped off at your business and document any prior damage.

Standard vehicle check-in inspections cover details about a vehicle’s exterior and interior spaces to ensure any existing damage is documented and repair costs are covered by the responsible party.

Who conducts vehicle check-in inspections?

A vehicle check-in inspection checklist allows porters or service advisors to quickly capture general owner, vehicle, and existing damage information on vehicles being dropped off at a dealership, service center, or rental agency.

Why use a mobile vehicle check-in inspection app?

 Conducting inspections with a mobile app and uploading and storing records in the cloud comes with a number of benefits that can help your business stay on top of your automotive services, including:

  • Easily record information for meticulous record-keeping and analysis
  • Upload photos inside the app to capture issues found during the inspection
  • Keep track of the full story with timestamps on all entries
  • Protect your business from customer accusations
  • Enable your shop to better adhere to state and federal regulations
  • Ensure that your inspectors are completing thorough inspections

A vehicle check-in inspection app enables service advisors to quickly capture vehicle and driver information, as well as existing damage with photos, descriptions, and timestamps in case a customer claims that new damage occurred while the vehicle was in your care. A mobile app can also be customized to suit your business requirements, whether you’re inspecting cars, buses, trucks, or any typeof vehicle.
