Industry Innovators Getaround and ServiceUp Build New Partnership


LOS GATOS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In order to further help fleet owners keep their vehicles in peak condition with minimal downtime, the innovative automotive repair and maintenance company ServiceUp has partnered with the world’s first connected carsharing marketplace, Getaround.

Getaround fleet owners, also known as hosts, can now save additional time and money on their vehicle repairs and maintenance, leading to increased uptime of vehicles on the Getaround platform. The ServiceUp for Fleets app allows hosts to easily schedule and track fleet repairs all in one place. With free pick up and delivery, hosts no longer have to worry about the hassle of vehicle repairs. Hosts also receive discounted pricing on repairs, further improving the profitability of their Getaround fleet.

“We’ve all stood in line at airports and dealt with the hassle of renting a car,” said Brett Carlson, Co-Founder and CEO of ServiceUp. “Getaround is disrupting the outdated rental car industry by innovating how people utilize and share vehicles. Our goal at ServiceUp is to help Getaround with vehicle supply by keeping vehicles on the road longer. We’re driven to make sure every single customer has a safe and worry-free journey in their shared vehicle.”

“ServiceUp shares our vision of connecting convenient, and affordable cars with people who need them to live, work and travel,” said Nick Tenekedes, Vice President of Marketplace. “ServiceUp’s unique solution for vehicle maintenance and repair enables our hosts to more easily manage their fleets of cars, increase fleet uptime, and grow their earning opportunity. It’s been a strong partnership for our carsharing community, and we’re excited to roll this out to our network of hosts.”
