“We are adding automotive service providers to our national network as fast as possible as it’s one of our key objectives for 2020. By adding even more options for our driver-base, our proprietary automotive repair and maintenance technology platform has even more value and optional facilities for our hundreds of thousands of driver members,” said Greg Tepas, Founder & CEO of CarAdvise. “Through this partnership, we will be able to connect our members to nearly 1,500 additional service providers to help them manage their vehicle maintenance through our platform.”
CarAdvise’s technological online vehicle service program, in partnership with Valvoline Instant Oil Change, will help drivers reduce vehicle maintenance service expenses while saving time and effort associated with maintaining their vehicles. With CarAdvise’s discounted fleet pricing, drivers can save from 10-40% on maintenance services. Through the platform’s technology, drivers can schedule appointments, approve and pay for services, as well as view their service history all from their digital devices.
Especially prudent in today’s environment, members benefit from CarAdvise’s “No Contact Car Care” platform, which reduces the amount of person-to-person exposure and ultimately reduces the incremental risk associated with extended personal contact.
