What's a mobile mechanic job?
Successful mobile mechanics have the skills and tools to handle anything from an oil change to an engine diagnostic and repair. Most of the mechanics on YourMechanic's platform have an average of 15 years of experience. They often have ASE certifications and experience working in dealerships or shops. YourMechanic offers its customers over 500 services right in their home driveways, so mechanics need to be experienced with a wide breadth of repairs. YourMechanic's platform takes care of the parts, warranty, scheduling, marketing, and customer service.
Technicians need to simply set up their profiles to clearly delineate their skill set and the zip codes near them in which they'd like to work, then set up their schedules for the week. YourMechanic enables mechanics to work when they want to - anytime from 7 am to 9 pm, seven days a week. Some mechanics choose to work 30 to 40 hours; others opt for evenings only; and others just work one day per week on the weekends to supplement their incomes outside of their regular gigs.
Can you make a lot of money as a mobile mechanic?
Mobile mechanics can earn over $100,000 per year, while maintaining a flexible schedule. Demand for mobile car repair far surpasses the availability of technicians this year. Even before the pandemic necessitated social distancing, mobile car repair was on the rise because it allowed car owners to skip the shot and order auto care to their driveways. While it's not ideal for mechanics who don't have a lot of experience, technicians with more than 5 years of experience tend to do well in the field because they can easily handle the hundreds of repairs that may come up in the field.
