LOS ANGELES — Mobile car repairer RepairSmith Inc. has acquired CarDash Inc., a concierge car repair service company based in Menlo Park, Calif.
Daimler A.G.-backed RepairSmith launched last year and operates mobile repair vans in California and Las Vegas. RepairSmith provides car repair and maintenance to car owners in their driveways or workplaces, in addition to offering online scheduling, upfront pricing and a warranty on all services.
CarDash launched in 2017 after raising $5.3 million in funding. The Silicon Valley startup offered San Francisco Bay Area car owners same-day valet service to transport their cars to and from partner repair shops.
"The acquisition of CarDash is part of our strategic vision to build the world's most convenient car repair service," RepairSmith CEO Joel Milne said.
"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."
Los Angeles-based RepairSmith said it will incorporate CarDash's technology to enhance its product offering and will service all customers from RepairSmith.com going forward. RepairSmith operates in several metropolitan markets, including Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, San Jose, Sacramento and Las Vegas.
All RepairSmith mechanics are employees of the company and drive custom-outfitted Mercedes-Benz Sprinter or Metris vehicles equipped with tools and parts.
