Are you a used car expert with vehicle inspection experience?

Become a screaner

We’re looking for Screaners in cities and towns all over South Africa. Wherever cars are sold, we need Screaners!

Are you:

  • A seasoned car pro that has many years’ experience in the second-hand car industry in assessment or sales?
  • Highly knowledgeable about used caravans, trailers, leisure boats, or vintage cars?
  • A qualified car mechanic with some extra time in the day to go and assess vehicles?
  • People-friendly, well-presented, articulate, reliable, and trustworthy, with a good credit rating and no criminal record?
  • Feel like you have what it takes to give a professional opinion?

If that sounds like you, read on.

What does a Screaner do?

Screan is an innovative platform that seeks to grow the second-hand car market in South Africa while providing knowledgeable used car experts with an opportunity to earn an income.

As a Screaner, your job is to visit the dealer or private seller of a second-hand car, armed with our comprehensive checklist and your smartphone, to assess its condition and then provide feedback to the customer via our platform.

"Writing this short message as one happy Screaner myself, I'm very happy about the professionalism on this team. I've done my first Screaner task and I was told the client was very satisfied. I'm also happy I got paid on time.

How much work can I expect to get through Screan?

That’s up to you. Each customer rates their Screaner’s service based on a simple set of criteria, and the top-ranked Screaners receive first option on all Screan bookings in their area. The better your service, the more jobs you’ll get, and the more money you can make.

What sets Screan apart is that our Screaners receive the lion’s share of each booking fee — up to 75%.


Can I trust Screan?

Of course, Screan is owned and operated by Cape Town entrepreneur Mike Schlebach and his team. Our ethos is to stimulate the Circular Economy and provide employment opportunities for hardworking South Africans of all backgrounds who deserve a chance to put food on the table.

It is in our best interests to build a community of reliable Screaners who build a reputation as the best in the business. As a great Screaner, you are our most valuable asset.

At last, a legitimate, professional approach to overcoming the perils of used car buying. I wish this existed years ago, it would have saved me some serious headaches. The idea is that your potential future car gets test driven, thoroughly checked, and you get the report. This takes the guesswork out of long distance car buying.
I have now become a Screaner, since I own two car workshops that are RMI 5-star graded. The checklist is comprehensive and we check every part and function of the vehicle. If you want to buy a used car and you want to take the guesswork out of the process, get a professional car guy to inspect the car, get a Screaner.

As a Screaner for Screan, I think the concept that has been put together and implemented is a really good one. 95% of buyers of second hand cars don’t know much about cars or the mechanics of them. Screan is definitely providing a great service at affordable rates. Personally, I am glad to be a Screaner because it gives me pleasure to help people that normally would have to rely on the word of the seller that the vehicle is in good condition. We all know that there are unscrupulous and devious people out there that will take others for a ride, that’s why it’s important to have a service like this. The platform that Screan has put together is very simple, user friendly and easy to use. It’s nice to know that we as Screaners are paid by Screan on time for a good service rendered.
