However, the total amount reflected on the paper is not always the final cost. It is best to remind yourself that an estimate is just really an estimate and not really the final cost. So, you have to expect that the total amount may change. As an example, there may be hidden damages that are not inspected during the diagnosis of the vehicle’s problem. These kind of damages can only be observed when the mechanic is already in the process of repairing your car. Supplement fees are the product of these kind of damages and will be added up to your bill.
