Auto Monkey does all the advertising, payments, and even pays for the parts needed for each repair order.  We've worked to make this as simple as possible for you, so all you practically have to do is show up and do the work.
Check out this short video to see how the platform works.

Steps to Become A Mobile Mechanic

Becoming an authorized mechanic on our platform does take some time. There are 4 steps in the vetting process:

  1. General Application - Submit basic contact and resume level information
  2. Documents & Agreements - This step is more in-depth and requires contractor documents and agreements to be signed. We also require proof of commercial insurance. We can provide you insurance if you don't already have your own. This is requirement imposed by insurance regulations. 
  3. Assessment Test - We have developed a knowledge test that assets your level of automotive repair knowledge. All qualified mechanics must pass with at least an 80%. 
  4. Personal Interview - This final step is where we determine personality fit, discuss wages,  answer questions. App training and discussions will be provided after final approvals.
