Why is there an application process?

Not all technicians are equal. Our customers expect each inspection to be conducted by an expert inspector who can provide them with the most thorough report possible. To this end, POMCAR only selects those technicians who have demonstrated experience on specific makes and models.

What are the required qualifications?

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.

Do I need to take any mandatory photos?

Yes. We require all technicians to take a legible photograph of the VIN, standard exterior and interior photos, and any specific deficiencies noted in the POMCAR report.

0 0

Can I be removed from the network?

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.

0 0

Can I use my own forms?

No. A standard POMCAR checklist must be followed. You have the option to submit findings and upload photos from your smartphone during the inspection or to do so after the inspection from your desktop or laptop.

0 0

Am I liable for any deficiencies that I fail to recognize?

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.

Do you reimburse for travel expenses?

No. When you sign-up, you provide us your address and how far (coverage radius) you are willing to travel to perform an inspection. The Payout Amount presented to you in the Inspection Alert Email states the total amount to be paid at completion.
