About the Mechanics Marketplace Application
The Mechanics Marketplace Application (The App.) enables Auto Repair shops to sublet work to their peers during busy times, borrow tools and equipment, share employees and even locate and buy hard-to-find, new, refurbished or used parts. Some auto repair shops are sitting on older inventory, open stock items that they can’t return, tools and equipment they no longer want or used body parts that insurance companies will accept as replacement for repairs. The App. enables them to find good homes for these items.
With the Automotive business being like a roller coaster, Skill-Loan is enabling the concept of employee sharing, where shops are able to request employees to cover for employees on vacation or out on leave, while shops that are less busy can loan out their employees for a pre-determined period. Collision Repair and Body shops are able to sell their used body parts and maximize their profits. With auto dismantlers, used parts suppliers and specialty suppliers connected to the platform, all members are able to expand their networks, find and buy what they want, sell their excess inventory as well as outsource their unique capabilities to other shops, in a very efficient manner.
The Mechanicsmarketplace.com Application is intuitive and easy to use. It was designed to save time by proactively seeking solutions. Members can post what they are looking for in minutes and their request goes to all registered members- based on their notification preferences. Shop owners or suppliers that have what the member requested, respond directly to him/her. The member can potentially receive multiple responses or proposals and s/he can decide who to conduct a transaction with. Members get rated for the service they provide and this helps build trust in their business and maintain a higher standard of quality and service in the network.
The App. is available on desktop computers running Chrome, Internet Explorer, FireFox and Safari Operating Systems, and it can be downloaded from the Apple AppStore and Android GooglePlay. The use of the App. is free and membership in Mechanics Marketplace is also free. We charge sellers a nominal service fee from their transaction revenue.
