Fixter: the AXA-backed startup making life easier for motorists


September 7, 2018 - Making car maintenance simple

Fixter provides competitively-priced car maintenance, powered by technology. Their end-to-end service includes picking up a customer’s vehicle within a 30-minute time slot, managing any required work on their behalf, and then returning the vehicle to the customer’s requested location – usually their home or workplace. They use a network of trusted local garages and guarantee all work for 12 months. Their mission? To give customers exceptional value, convenience and peace of mind.

In February 2017, Fixter started operating in the Manchester area as part of a soft launch. This gave the company an opportunity to iterate and improve its service before launching more widely. Now, Fixter is embarking on its national ambitions, operating in certain areas of London, Leeds, Liverpool and Birmingham.

Through their three offices in Paris, London and Tel Aviv, they help companies like Fixter fund, develop and scale their business ideas. More...
