RepairSmith has announced its acquisition of CarDash, a service-based startup with a shared mission to bring car owners convenient car repair and maintenance service. RepairSmith is backed by automaker Daimler AG.
“The acquisition of CarDash is part of our strategic vision to build the world’s most convenient car repair service,” said RepairSmith CEO Joel Milne. “CarDash made tremendous investments in the logistics, dispatch and operational systems required to provide consumers concierge-level car repair at their doorstep, and with this deal RepairSmith is enhancing our technology platform to modernize the car repair experience.”
CarDash launched out of Y Combinator in 2017 after raising $5.3 million in funding. The Silicon Valley startup shares RepairSmith’s mission to make car repair convenient. CarDash offered Bay Area car owners same-day valet service to transport their cars to and from repair shops.
“CarDash is a pioneer in delivering concierge car repair; teaming up with industry-leading RepairSmith will empower even more customers with convenient car repair that comes to them,” said Yinon Weiss, CEO of CarDash.
RepairSmith will incorporate CarDash’s technology to enhance its product offering, and will service all customers from RepairSmith.com going forward. RepairSmith operates its delivery and drop off services across all major metropolitan areas in California and Las Vegas. All RepairSmith mechanics are employees of the company and drive custom-outfitted, Mercedes-Benz Sprinter or Metris vehicles equipped with quality tools and parts to deliver a five-star experience for car owners in their driveway.
