Hey guys and gals. I'm doing a group project and looking for insight from other owners and techs. My group is looking at why Tech's decide to leave their jobs or what is it that makes them stay at others.

      I'm interested in your feedback on what I term 'project cars', ie, vehicles that are in need of significant overhaul involving multiple car systems. In other words, these jobs represent more than the daily bread-and-butter maintenance turn...
      For example, we have a client who has asked us to work on a '99 Mercedes owned by his mother, who is now too old to drive. It is not a bad car as such; however, it has a cracked head among other multiple issues that will require hours of diagnosis, an extensive outlay for parts and potentially weeks of work.
      I'd like to know if others have established a policy of handling these situations in a way that is fair to both us and the customer. Obviously, the total cost is not yet known. How would you handle the upfront diagnostic time required for assessing the total job? Once you assess the the scope of work, do we require an upfront deposit for the cost of parts? What about labor charges? Projects like this can take up plenty of time. I don't like the idea of being exposed to the parts cost.
      Obviously I prefer that our business gravitate to 'normal' service issues because it's more profitable. But this is a longtime client. I see multiple opportunities for mis-communication here because of the disconnect between the client's expectations, ie, a fully repaired vehicle, and the reality of the amount of work involved. How do you handle unforeseen issues that arise after the primary diagnosis?
