How Does the Application Process Work? 

  1. If you are approved for Jump Start, you’ll work with the RepairSmith team to assess the state of your vehicles. In most cases, this will include running diagnostics on your vehicles to ensure we deliver the right repair for your vehicles.

  2. RepairSmith will review your diagnostic results. RepairSmith will schedule a time for our mobile technicians to complete your services, up to $10,000 for each organization. 
    a.  Within the $10,000 allotment, any vehicles owned by your organization (for example shuttle vehicles, work trucks, cargo vans, etc.) are eligible for any repair or maintenance service up to $1,000 per vehicle except transmission, engine, glass, collision/body work.
