Have you ever dreamed of being your own boss? Our contractors did too. They were hesitant at first, but now they can't believe they didn't make the leap sooner. Let's debunk four common myths about freelancing in the motor industry and discover the reality.

What is holding you back from becoming-contract vehicle technician?

Worried about job security? Don't be.

Our contract staff is in high demand, and while we can't promise work every single day (sometimes life throws curveballs like a pandemic), we can assure you a consistent flow of work. We stay busy year-round and even have opportunities for permanent roles if freelancing isn't your thing.


Concerned about long-distance travel? No need.

As a contractor, you have the freedom to choose where you work. We'll never pressure you to go somewhere you don't want to. And if we do offer a contract that requires a little more travel, we'll compensate you with a higher hourly rate. It's all about flexibility.


Worried about unpredictable income? Highly unlikely.

Our contracts are booked in advance and often last for months at a time, providing stability and the ability to plan ahead. Contractors earn high hourly rates, with a guaranteed 8 hours of work per day and weekly pay. Plus, we offer free or discounted training.


Freelancing offers excellent earning potential, most often surpassing what you'd make in a permanent position. You'll have enough to save and secure your future.


Not quite ready to be your own boss? We'll help.
