Service My Car, the tech-enabled car-servicing platform, has announced its $10 million Seed funding round, led by Oman’s Bahwan.
Service My Car was launched in 2018 with the aim of digitizing a predominantly brick-and-mortar car servicing industry, and with the infusion of technology, bring in more transparency, affordability, and convenience to car owners.
Customers can book their car service online, have their car collected and delivered at a time and location convenient to them, and stay updated on their car’s progress throughout the repair stages. A thorough quality check led by a team of industry veterans ensures the highest level of quality standards, Service My Car states. Customers also get 12 months warranty on spare parts.
Ozair Puda, Founder & CEO of Service My Car commented, “It is an emerging time for the automotive ecosystem as investors are noticing the benefits of technology and digitization in the industry. With the infusion of this capital, we are looking forward to extending this convenience, affordability, and transparency to all GCC car owners. Additionally, our 12-months labor and parts warranty will be disruptive for the siloed and segmented car repair industry. We are hoping to extend our services offered with car detailing, service contracts, roadside assistance, 4×4 accessories, car insurance, car rental, and mobile service to become the one-stop online solution for all car needs.”
A representative of Bahwan said, “As the automotive repair industry continues to grow in the face of extended supply and tight competition, Service My Car is at the forefront of digital growth. Most innovation has been focused on garage-level process improvements, but until now, businesses have not focused on end-user convenience and affordability. Service My Car has shown exceptional results since inception with a growth rate of 200% during its first year and 300% this past year. They have the team, talent, and technology to not only succeed but to emerge as the leader in the online car servicing ecosystem.”
The startup is now looking at expansion into the GCC by the end of the year.
