First thank you for allowing me to join your forum. I have just recently retired from the US Army as a Senior Maintenance Warrant Officer of 27 years. I am curious if an idea I have may be a possible fit and if so how you could possibly see it implemented.

I have come to meet some very reputable repair shops, owners and guys out in the shops since getting to know my way around home again after returning from deployments. In fact I have taken a few of my friends and families cars in for repair during my free time I now have.

Is there a market for a guy like me who knows his way around a vehicle pretty well? Sure I know its not a tank, but nonetheless I would like to offer my services as an outside sales for service, tires or both.

So given a scenario where I over hear the public talking about a needed repair, a breakdown, maintenance or tires how can I be a fit between the customer and the shop?

How do you see the billing? The communication? My compensation?

Im just looking for something to do…

Thanks! Jim
