A motor vehicle repair bill has been introduced in the South Carolina Senate. The legislation would likely cover glass shops under “Motor Vehicle Repair Facility” defined as a person, motor vehicle dealer, garage, body shop, or other services center engaged in diagnoses, repairs, or services to a motor vehicle for the purpose of making a profit.

The bill states that a repair facility would be required to provide a customer with a written estimate that include a breakdown of parts and labor costs and a completion time. The estimate would include whether parts would be OEM, aftermarket or used. The facility could not charge for work that is more than $200 over the estimate with customer consent. The facility could charge $25 for the estimate if the customer chooses to do the work elsewhere.
