The trend of offering at-home car repair seems to have caught the attention of one of the world’s largest automakers.
Daimler AG is a major investor in a new maintenance service that brings certified technicians to a customer’s door.
The service, called RepairSmith, promises to dispatch automotive service technicians who “will have full-time hours, be equipped with company vehicles and tools, and trained to deliver a new kind of experience for car owners.”
Billed as “truly convenient automotive repair and maintenance,” it will be offered in Los Angeles and San Francisco to start.
RepairSmith is available for all vehicle types and gives car owners the choice to have repairs done at home, at work, or at the shop.
“Car owners are frustrated by the inconvenience and lack of transparency of the traditional experience,” said RepairSmith CEO Joel Milne. “We are delivering more than a service; we are delivering an entirely new way to repair and maintain your car by providing a trusted online pricing and booking platform while meeting the needs of car owners directly where they need it.”
RepairSmith has uploaded a short video showing what their service might look like. See the video HERE.
