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.
The basic plan includes a Castrol oil change and 50-point safety inspection. 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.
The product lineup offers dealers the opportunity to:
- provide customers with maintenance services even if their business does not have an on-location service shop
- offer long-distance car buyers a maintenance package that they can take advantage of locally at their home or office
- reduce warranty complications, such as denied claims
“We collaborated with independent car dealers and identified an opportunity to introduce a new, aftermarket maintenance program for dealers to offer their customers. 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.”
