The startup will use the funding to expand presence in Maharashtra, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh, and strengthen its operations and technology teams. It intends to open 10 new workshops by the end of the current fiscal.
Founded in October 2018 by Vivek Sharma, Abhishek Goyal and Inderjeet Rao, Fixcraft provides end-to-end car-repair services—from picking up the vehicle from a customer’s location to filing insurance claims, if any, in case of an accident. The company, which at present has three workshops in Delhi NCR, claims to have provided services to 3,500 customers till date.
The startup has so far raised $1.5 million, including the current round.
“The auto repair industry has been in dire need of a tech-enabled player to handle the lack of trust and high cost of repair and service. We witnessed a 400% year-on-year growth, and are targeting to maintain the momentum across our B2C and B2B channels equally,” said Sharma, who is also the chief executive of the company.
“The pandemic certainly wreaked havoc across the sectors. However, post lockdown, people relied on their own personal vehicles over shared mobility. This phenomenon appears to have given a push to the auto service sector,” according to the statement.
