(d) the time and date of arrival at the place of storage or repair of the vehicle to which the service relates and of return to the registered premises of the person supplying the service;

(e) if the work involved in supplying the service was carried out partly during normal hours and partly outside normal hours—details of the work carried out during normal hours and outside normal hours;

(f) if more than one tow truck was used in supplying the service or more than one person was engaged in supplying the service—the number of tow trucks used or persons engaged; and
