New CarDash App Makes Repairs Easy – Check It Out

In an article written by BÉRÉNICE MAGISTRETTI and on, we can read about how there is a new app called Cardash that has raised a lot of money to create an app that allows you to request a repair from your home or work, or wherever; and then someone will come pick up your car, take it to the shop and repair it and bring it back in time for dinner, or when your done with work. Pretty net.

CarDash wants to take the hassle out of getting your car repaired by picking the vehicle up from your work or home and bringing it to a certified auto shop. The Menlo Park, California-based startup today announced the close of a $5.3 million round of funding.

Customers book a slot on the CarDash website and either leave the car keys at the front desk or coordinate with a CarDash representative. The car is then serviced or repaired and is generally returned to the customer by 5 p.m.

“Over 95 percent of services are completed the same day as we get an express lane at our service partners and we ensure that necessary parts are ordered in advance,” wrote CarDash cofounder and CEO Yinon Weiss, in an email to VentureBeat. If a service takes longer than a day, CarDash typically offers a free Lyft or Uber ride to customers and delivers the vehicle to their home.

The startup does offer to fill up your gas tank but does not claim to compete with on-demand companies that focus exclusively on fuel delivery. One such example is mobile gas station startup Booster, which announced a $20 million funding round last week.
