Repairify said Wednesday it has launched and subsequently operated a two-sided sublet repair marketplace — Repair OnDemand — that is designed to connect sublet repair professionals with fleet owners, auctions, dealerships and independent repair facilities.
There are more than 16,000 sublet auto repair professionals available through the platform, which has seen its network grow, with billions of repairs occurring through the service.
“Our clients are companies that typically have hundreds or thousands of vehicles in need of inspection, cosmetic body work, minor mechanical repairs and maintenance, or key replacement,” said Tony Rimas, president of Repairify’s Repair OnDemand business, in a news release. “Our marketplace already has become an invaluable resource in a relatively short amount of time.”
Added Yoker Vidal, vice president of sales at Copart: “Becoming competitive in the wholesale automotive whole car space is about offering a quality product with operational speed and performance. Repair OnDemand has enabled us to become nimble through a period when finding fast, reliable repair professionals has been incredibly challenging for our competitors. We now offer services to our clients that we had challenges offering before.”
Vidal and Rimas are both among the speakers at Used Car Week, which begins Nov. 14 in San Diego.
