For Mechanics

Key benefits of joining BlueStar

  • Increased revenue and profitability.
  • Earn a flat fee for each inspection performed.
  • Gain new customers that will hopefully provide you continuing repair and service opportunities for years to come.
  • Piggyback off of BlueStar national and local marketing campaigns.
  • Have your shop name, phone, address, and website information accessible on the BlueStar.com website and searchable by city, state, and zip code.
  • Set your shop apart from other auto shops in your area, as not all shops qualify or can pass BlueStar's shop requirements.
  • Pay nothing to join (assuming you qualify) with no monthly or ongoing costs.
  • Help bring honesty and transparency to the used car market.

Requirements to join BlueStar

At BlueStar, we are interested in partnering with the best mechanics/shops in each local area. We also limit the number of mechanics/shops in any particular zip code. As such, BlueStar certified mechanics/shops must meet the following minimum requirements:

  • Have been in business at least three years.
  • Have at least one ASE certified technician on staff.
  • Be in good standing with the Better Business Bureau (BBB).
  • Have good reviews on google and other rating sites.

  • Agree to be trained on and implement BlueStar’s detailed 150-point mechanical and maintenance inspection procedures.
