    Can the highlighted words be used in the following sentences? Please advise.

    1) I need to send my car to the garage for damage assessment.

    2) I am hoping that the police will do an investigation to help me discover/find the suspect that hit my car.

    3) He needs housing rental informations and any useful informations that will help him settle down in the new city.

    4) He needs relocation informations to guide him with his move to the new city.

    "Information" is not countable. You want information, not "informations."

    Thank you SoothingDave for teaching me.

    Does that mean all the sentences above are understandable and correct if the word informations is changed to information?

    Hope to hear from you soon, thanks.

    1. I would say "a damage assessment."
    2. I'm not sure "suspect" is the best word. It's not like it's a murder case and there's going to be a trial. You want to find the driver that hit your car.

    Others OK. Maybe "settle into" instead of "settle down in."
