Auto Repair (Mechanic) Invoice Template
An auto repair (mechanic) invoice is a form used for listing the parts and/or labor costs that went into repairing a customer’s vehicle. The document is given to the customer after all repairs have been complete, and states that date they must have the total amount paid by. The majority of mechanics require payment to be made upon receipt, although some allow for up to thirty (30) days for their client to pay. This can be written as “Net 30” on the form.
The form can be used for any vehicle type, be it a truck, car, RV, bus, and so on. The mechanic will list out the repairs they conducted, the cost of each, the amount of hours they spent on each task, their hourly rate, and the number and cost of all part(s) used. This will then be summed with the form, providing the client with a clear view of the total amount ($) they owe. It can be used for both full and part-time technicians and repair shops.
