“Our data shows 70% of our customers purchase Vehicle Repair Protection on their mobile devices which is completely upending the traditional business model of paper contracts and aggressive salespeople," said Alejandro Cabrera, co-founder and COO of Uproar.car.
SEATTLE (PRWEB) October 13, 2020
Uproar.car, the innovative digital vehicle repair protection provider, announced today that it has partnered with Spiffy, the zero contact car wash, detailing and sanitization company that comes to consumers at home or at work. The partnership extends the accessibility of both companies nationwide and further disrupts the traditional way consumers access car maintenance services and repairs, bringing “Complete Car Care” to today’s mobile marketplace.
Uproar.car joins Spiffy along with two additional partners that were recently announced: Carvana, the disruptive e-commerce platform for buying and selling used cars; and Gabi, offering an online insurance comparison tool to help customers switch or bundle coverage.
“Through this strategic partnership with Spiffy, we’re further empowering consumers to take charge of their own car care through something as simple as accessing their phones,” said Alejandro Cabrera, co-founder and COO of Uproar.car. “Our data shows 70% of our customers purchase Vehicle Repair Protection on their mobile devices which is completely upending the traditional business model of paper contracts and aggressive salespeople. Partnering with Spiffy will allow Uproar.car to expand our footprint while providing Spiffy’s customers with our completely new and transparent extended warranty subscription service.”
The deal puts both Spiffy and Uproar.car in a position to help further ease the stress of vehicle ownership for consumers. A late-September random survey nationwide across genders, ages and incomes showed 30% of those polled said the top stressor of car ownership is repair costs. Uproar.car helps car owners by covering inevitable, unexpected car repair bills for a low monthly subscription instead of a long-term contract whether it’s a $600 A/C repair or a $3,800 new transmission.
“We’re so excited to work with the Uproar.car team to take the stress out of vehicle ownership,” said Scot Wingo, Spiffy CEO. “As we build a complete car care marketplace, partners like Uproar.car help create the quintessential customer experience. Their subscription model flips the archaic practice of extended warranties on its head for customer benefit, which aligns perfectly with our mission to disrupt the car care experience everywhere.”
Starting with disrupting the archaic and difficult-to-navigate traditional extended vehicle warranty market, Uproar.car delivers worry-free car care to the next generation. Today, more than 90% of extended auto repair warranties are sold directly to consumers through high-pressure sales pitches with unfair markups at the point of sale. Unchecked control of the marketplace and common steep markups allow warranty representatives at all levels to profit off vehicle owners. Uproar.car upends this process by making extended car warranties (vehicle service contracts) instantly available online at a fraction of the traditional cost, with no-haggling or negotiations, and with far more convenience.
Uproar.car is transforming the $40B traditional extended car warranty marketplace through technology and transparency. In an industry that relies on an antiquated system of paper contracts, aggressive salespeople and huge markups, Uproar.car is creating a warranty experience that is simple, trustworthy and affordable. Uproar.car offers a full suite of worry free, no haggle car care plans through low-cost, 100% online, monthly subscriptions which can be signed up for in less than five minutes. Beyond its core Vehicle Repair Protection, Uproar.car also offers additional coverage plans including Tire and Wheel Protection, Key and Fob Replacement, Technology Protection, and Lease Protection. Ninety-five percent of American households own a vehicle and rely on it daily, but car repairs are inevitable, often unexpected, and can be financially disruptive and inconvenient. Uproar.car plans are paid as a low monthly subscription fee and can be canceled anytime with no penalty. Prices vary depending on a vehicle’s make, model, year and mileage. Uproar.car takes a historically complex and opaque process, and makes it easy, seamless, affordable and authentic. Based in Seattle and launched to the public in September 2020, Uproar.car is A rated with the Better Business Bureau and is available in most of the United States.
