Gurgaon-based car repair and automobile servicing startup, GoMechanic has raised an undisclosed amount of seed funding from Orios Venture Partners – a Mumbai-based early stage venture fund primarily invests in tech enabled startups. Angel investor Dhianu Das has also participated in this seed round.
Besides the expansion of the operation, some part of funds will be used for expanding partnerships and for customer acquisition.
“The consistent deployment of technology and vision towards organising an un-organised industry such as the auto spare and services market makes them good partners for us,” Rehan Yar Khan, Managing Partner, Orios Venture Partners said.
Founded in April 2016 by IIM-Ahmedabad alumni Amit Bhasin and Kushal Karwa, GoMechanic connects users with automobile repair and maintenance service providers in the vicinity and provides original spare parts for all the services booked at its partner service centres.
“Our goal is to give car owners a seamless, professional yet affordable experience when they seek out repair and maintenance services,” GoMechanic co-founder Amit Bhasin said adding, this capital gives additional resources to expand, innovate and deliver rapidly towards covering entire NCR.
In very short span of time, GoMechanic has emerged as a preferable choice in the Indian car repair and automobile servicing space. Be it periodic maintenance, denting painting, major repairs, car cleaning, or even changing tires and batteries, GoMechanic is known to provide the best available resources to take care of its users’ prized possessions.
The platform also offers the guarantee on all spare parts provided up to three years. The company claims to provide services at a price which is 30-50% lower than normal service stations.
Previously, the company had raised $250,000 from Venture Catalysts, in December 2016.
