MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — YourMechanic Inc., a mobile car repair network, has launched a fleet product that offers flexible service packages, including on-demand repair delivered directly to the fleet of vehicles.
YourMechanic also is offering preventive maintenance solutions to potential future costs.
"In developing our product, we learned that today's fleet managers are faced with many roadblocks — budget constraints, variable maintenance needs, labor shortages — with limited solutions available," said Rob Francis, YourMechanic's senior director of growth.
"Our fleet product is the first of several business-to-business solutions we will be launching this year to augment our consumer business, supported by our nationwide network of experienced, certified mobile mechanics and parts suppliers."
YourMechanic said it recently completed a pilot program with fleet managers and developed a full product line from the program insights. All offerings deliver mobile mechanics, which it claims dramatically reduces downtime and eliminates the need to transport vehicles to a shop or dealership.
The product offerings include:
- Fleet Labor Service which provides fleet managers with mobile mechanics to complete work on site;
- Full Mobile Service which provides fleet managers with mobile mechanics and parts to complete work on site; and
- Full Service Shop which offers support to set up a shop and deliver mobile mechanics and parts to complete work on site.
Facundo Tassara, fleet manager for the City of Norfolk, Va., participated in YourMechanic's fleet pilot program.
"YourMechanic has helped the City of Norfolk in times of work backlog in the shops, filled the gap during technician shortages, and has flat-out helped us reduce equipment downtime. The team at YourMechanic, from headquarters to technicians, are professional, courteous, and have become ingrained in our mission to deliver the best possible service to user departments and taxpayers," he said.
YourMechanic works with a network of more than 1,000 mechanics in more than 30 states to deliver on-demand repair, maintenance and diagnostic services, the company said.
YourMechanic has partnerships with several national parts so that its mobile mechanics arrive on a job with the parts needed to complete work directly on site, the company said.
