Mobile Vehicle Service Startups Combine

Daimler AG-backed RepairSmith has acquired CarDash, a startup that launched out of Y Combinator in 2017 after raising $5.30 million in funding. CarDash offered same-day valet service to transport cars to and from repair shops in San Francisco and the Bay Area.

RepairSmith operates a delivery and drop-off service for vehicle service across all major metropolitan areas in California and in Las Vegas.

“CarDash made tremendous investments in the logistics, dispatch and operational systems required to provide consumers concierge-level car repair at their doorstep,” said RepairSmith CEO Joel Milne. “And, with this deal, RepairSmith is enhancing our technology platform to modernize the car repair experience.”

RepairSmith plans to incorporate CarDash’s technology to enhance its product offering and will service all customers from RepairSmith going forward, according to a Feb. 26 announcement.

Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
