The majority of techs must hold a current ASE certification and possess years of experience working on specific makes and models. While you don’t have to be a working mechanic to become a member, many of our seasoned technicians are ASE master-technicians and have specialized training.
Required equipment to perform an inspection includes a voltmeter, tire pressure gage, tire tread depth gage, and digital camera capable of taking high-resolution photos. Most of our techs also carry an OBD-II Scan Tool to perform the diagnostic scan.
Equipment needed to be a POMCAR Technician includes a personal computer or laptop with internet access, personal phone to contact vehicle seller and/or be reached by POMCAR, a means of transportation to and from the vehicle location, a camera or camera phone with at least 8 mega-pixels or greater to take photos, a tire tread depth gage, and a digital voltmeter to obtain the battery voltage output, especially important to hybrid and electric vehicles. Optional equipment includes a scan tool to perform a diagnostic test on onboard systems.
Professionalism and response time! Having been selected from among many qualified techs, we know you will serve as great ambassadors for POMCAR in both your engagement with sellers and in the rigor by which you perform our standard 270-point inspection. That’s why you were chosen. Our customers expect a timely report delivered to them as soon as possible so they can make an informed decision. We expect you to contact the seller immediately after receiving an alert to schedule the inspection and to submit your findings within 24 hours of completing the inspection.
Payouts per inspection start at $70 and range higher depending on the vehicle type and location.
When you receive an inspection alert via email or SMS/text message, the Payout Amount will be presented. This amount will be paid to you once you submit your findings online. Payment issued to your specific bank account (1-2 days) or via check by mail (7-10 days).
The POMCAR Inspection Alert email contains the vehicle info and seller address and phone no. Within 24 hours, you must contact the seller to schedule a date/time to perform the inspection. Once you arrange a time to inspect, enter in your Account by going to:
■ MY ACCOUNT in the upper right corner

Yes. Current network technicians are evaluated based on responsiveness and the quality of the inspection performed. Those that do not acknowledge 3 or more work requests, fail to perform an adequate inspection, or fail to perform an inspection after setting a time to do so with the seller/broker are subject to removal.
No. As we are not able to perform a complete mechanical inspection of each vehicle, we release from liability POMCAR and all affiliated technicians from any claims against either party with regard to misrepresentation of a vehicle. POMCAR does reserve the right to terminate any technician who fails to perform an adequate inspection as a result of negative feedback or an incomplete or unsatisfactory report.
