- IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM AFTER REPAIRS OR SERVICE
If you have a problem with your vehicle after we have carried out repairs and/or servicing, you must report the problem to us as soon as possible and we will
work with you to resolve the problem.
No other repairer is authorised to carry out repairs to the vehicle without our express written consent. Following communications with you, we may agree to
pay for the cost of a tow truck to return the vehicle to our workshop. We will conduct a full inspection of the vehicle and provide you with our advice and
opinion on the problem and the repairs required as well as an estimate of the cost. If the problem is a result of faulty workmanship that requires us to carry
out rectification work to the vehicle, we will arrange a convenient time for the repair work to be carried out at no cost to you.
Conversely, if the repairs required have no bearing to work completed by us, you will be responsible for the cost of towing the vehicle, as well as any
necessary repairs, if we are instructed by you to complete them.

are entitled to sell or dispose of the vehicle by any reasonable method at your expense without any further notice to you.
We will apply the proceeds of the sale or disposal of the vehicle to the sums you owe us and return the balance to you. If the proceeds received from the sale
or disposal of the vehicle are not sufficient to discharge the amounts you owe us, the outstanding amounts will be owed by you to us as a debt. After such
sale or disposal of the vehicle we will be discharged from any liability whatsoever in respect of the vehicle.
- REFERRAL TO OTHER REPAIRERS
In certain circumstances we may recommend another repairer to you. This is a recommendation only and we receive no fee for referral nor play any part in
the pricing or operations of these independent businesses.
We are in no way responsible nor liable for the work another repairer carries out on your vehicle, whether or not such repairs were carried out at the other
repairer’s business location or as a mobile repairer at our business premises.

of your vehicle, yourself and any passengers. This video footage may be used to assess the condition of the vehicle upon presentation to this business.
Your In Car Dash Camera/s may have been disabled while your vehicle was in our workshop. Upon collection of your vehicle and before you leave the
premises, ensure your camera/s are enabled.
- SOCIAL MEDIA
As your vehicle is on our premises, it may be photographed, videoed or included in Social Media posts used for promotional purposes. All care is taken to
ensure number plates are covered/not visible during these times.
If you do not wish this to happen, it is required that you communicate this to German Auto Dynamics staff upon vehicle drop off.

objects. Loss or damage could also occur as a result of natural disasters like windstorms, earthquakes, hail, and flood.
