RepairSmith acquires mobile repair, maintenance provider


RepairSmith, a provider of full service car repair and maintenance for car owners at their home or workplace and on-site for fleets, has acquired More Automotive Group, a mobile repair and maintenance services provider.

More Automotive Group provides its services for San Francisco Bay area and Sacramento fleets, property managers and corporate office parks.

With the acquisition, RepairSmith will now service all More Automotive locations and fleets.

More Automotive Group was founded in 2016, servicing thousands of vehicles annually. The group performs on-site repair and preventive maintenance, including oil changes, filter and wiper blade replacements, tire rotation, brake and suspension repairs and check engine light diagnostics.

For more complex work, the group also offers concierge service to an off-site repair facility.

Through the acquisition, RepairSmith adds location-based, mobile service availability for property managers and corporate office parks. RepairSmith said the service line expansion builds on its at-home service that it launched in August 2019, and it complements its recently announced fleet service.

The addition of location-based services means RepairSmith expands its fleet of mobile service vehicles, which now include Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cab Chassis vehicles.

Those vehicles are outfitted with oil handling equipment and tire machines that enable high-volume oil changes, preventive services and on-site tire replacement and tire balancing.

RepairSmith operates its delivery and drop-off services across all major metropolitan areas in California and also in Las Vegas and Phoenix. All RepairSmith mechanics are employees of the company. They drive a custom-outfitted Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, Mercedes-Benz Metris or Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cab Chassis.

Those vehicles are equipped with tools and parts that the company says help “deliver a five-star service experience.”

“We look forward to helping RepairSmith through a commitment to trust, quality and exceptional service,” former More Automotive Group owner Tim Kennedy said in a news release. Kennedy is now vice president of fleet sales for RepairSmith.

Kennedy continued, “I’m excited to bring new equipment and services to those who have worked with More Automotive for years. RepairSmith’s fleet is one-of-a-kind and expands our diagnostic capabilities, digital tools, and tire services.”

“Our growing, state-of-the-art fleet of service vehicles are expanding the traditional mobile repair experience by bringing the highest quality diagnostics, tools and parts direct to our customers,” said RepairSmith chief commercial officer Felix-Matthias Walter, who is responsible for all customer-facing and technical operations within RepairSmith.

Walter continued, “Our new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cab Chassis vehicles are specially equipped for location and fleet services and carry all relevant tools and custom supplied parts to deliver exceptional quality. Teaming up with More Automotive Group is part of our strategic vision to become the most convenient automotive service company.”
