We are looking for an experienced heavy duty mechanic to provide leadership and support to our resident mechanic on a part-time basis. This position is perfect for someone looking for a flexible schedule or to focus on the knowledge aspects rather than physical strength. Old guys welcome.

Customer service is a core value, and we pride ourselves on being practical, mindful of cost, honest and team-oriented. We enjoy the wide variety & challenge of our work, the opportunities to learn, and a friendly, engaged team.
