    It is common in the car rental industry for vehicles to be assessed for any damage after the customer has left - often the car is left at a checkpoint and is inspected later when it is prepared for the next customer. This means customers can then be charged for alleged damage at your discretion. Your customers should be made aware that their credit card may be later debited for the cost of any repairs to the vehicle. Consumers should be made aware of the terms and conditions they are agreeing to.
