Automotive Repair Services
All Auto Monkey Automotive Repair Services constitute a technology platform including websites, social media platforms, and mobile applications (the “Platform”) that enables users to access a network of independent third party vehicle service providers (mechanics, technicians, or other independent contractors) (“Mobile Mechanic”), and/or to arrange for vehicle inspection, diagnosis, maintenance, repair, or related services (“Automotive Repair Services”). WE DO NOT PROVIDE VEHICLE SERVICES, AND WE ARE NOT THE EMPLOYER OF ANY THIRD PARTY, OR CONTRACTED, PROVIDER. You acknowledge that we do not supervise, direct, or control a Mobile Mechanic's work or Automotive Repair Services performed in any manner. A Mobile Mechanic provides services to you as an independent contractor, and is not an employee, joint venture, partner, agent, or franchisee of Auto Monkey for any purpose whatsoever, and is responsible to provide their own automotive repair insurance.
Scheduling a Job
To request an appointment for Automotive Repair Service (a “Repair Request”), you may be asked to specify the type of service that you think is required, the location where you would like the Repair Request to be performed, and the date and time that you would like the Repair Request to take place. You agree that it is your responsibility to provide a suitable location for the Repair Request, and to ensure that the Mobile Mechanic has proper access and permission, and is legally authorized to complete the Repair Request at the location.
Once you submit a Repair Request, we may provide you with a price. We reserve the right to modify, add, or delete items and/or price at any time prior to billing you.

When you reschedule a Repair Request, you agree to do so through the Auto Monkey Platform.
Customers are provided the ability to cancel their requests up until the mechanic has changed their status to On The Way without any fees being incurred. This option is easily found in the repair request. If any order needs to be canceled, users must notate in the app's chat feature they wish to cancel the order before canceling to the order to communication their notification.
You agree to treat Mobile Mechanics courteously and lawfully, to provide a safe and appropriate working environment that is in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, and to provide reasonable cooperation to enable Mobile Mechanic to complete the Repair Request. We do not control the availability of the independent Mobile Mechanics on the Auto Monkey Platform. You acknowledge that your selected Mobile Mechanic may be unavailable from time to time, e.g. due to illness, or vacation.
Plastic, composite and rubber engine and cooling system components are often affected by age and temperature fluctuations and become fragile over time.

If you would like to receive the replaced vehicle parts upon completion of the Repair Request, please tell the Mobile Mechanic on site or firstname.lastname@example.org ,and, if applicable, you will be charged the core price for the replacement part and you will be responsible for proper disposal of such parts in accordance with all applicable laws, regulations and rules.
