YourMechanic mobile car repair network announced the launched an aftermarket pre-paid maintenance product for independent auto dealers at Agent Summit 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The product includes three service package options that auto dealers can combine with other finance and insurance (F&I) offerings, such as warranty plans, to add value to the car purchase experience for their customers.

Premium packages, designed as complete car care for one or two years of service, include additional oil changes, tire rotations and discounts for services such as satellite radio and auto related products from YourMechanic partners.

YourMechanic is excited to offer this first-of-kind product to agents,” said Rob Francis, senior director of growth, YourMechanic. “The service provided by our mobile mechanics is a win-win for dealers and their customers. Dealerships can now offer convenient, routine maintenance services delivered to a customer’s home or office. Simultaneously, following a routine maintenance schedule helps a customer comply with the terms and conditions that warranty products require.”
