Garage, the aptly named on-demand car maintenance services platform, has announced that it raised $260,000 in funding from multiple investors.
For those not familiar with the startup, Garage is a Khobar-based startup that has not officially launched yet. Despite that, however, the company has obviously shown enough potential for investors to pour funds into the project.
Garage was founded earlier in 2020 by Osama Al Salloum. The company has set itself an ambitious objective of digitizing car maintenance services to the extent possible. This way, Garage says, customers from across its target markets will be able to conveniently book quality car maintenance services using its mobile app.
Not only that, customers will have the option to have these services delivered right at their doorstep. The services include all maintenance services that don’t require heavy machinery, such as tire change, battery replacement, car wash, engine oil replacement, and such.
Customers can also use the Garage app to purchase spare parts and accessories. The app will automatically check the availability of the parts and accessories of the request and then list the best prices for those items.
As per Garage’s current roadmap, the company will be launching its services first in Khobar, Damman, and Darhan over the next couple of months. Following this, these services will be expanded to the rest of the Eastern Province, Jeddah, and Riyadh by the end of 2021.
Commenting on the vision that powers Garage, founder Osama ALSalloum noted: “As an owner of a vehicle, I still have to deal with maintenance service centers the way people had to 25 years ago. With Garage, we aim to change that. With our team, partners, and investors, we aim to digitalize this important sector and provide a reliable, professional service with experienced technicians for all vehicle owners in the Kingdom.”
