AUSTIN, Texas, July 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- NuBrakes, an Austin-based on-demand, brake repair service, announced today that it has closed $720k in Seed funding. The funding was provided by Gurtin Ventures, Capital Factory, Contrary Capital, and others. NuBrakes currently offers service in Dallas and Austin, TX, and will use the capital to expand its brake services into new cities starting with Houston, TX.
NuBrakes is the next step in the auto care evolution for the team behind NuWash, an on-demand, app-driven car detailing service founded in 2016. With NuBrakes, customers will receive brake repair services right where their vehicle is parked at their home or office, plus some additional perks like:
- 40% savings on services when compared to local shop & dealer pricing
- Same-day service with evening service time slots to ensure repairs are done around your schedule
- ASE certified mobile brake mechanics with decades of combined experience
- Transparent pricing that cuts out the unnecessary upsells other shops rely on
Customers also gain access to transparent brake repair services without the unreasonable pricing, unnecessary upsells and long wait times vehicle owners have become accustomed to when dealing with traditional auto repair shops.
"Our customers have depended on us for high-quality, eco-friendly car detailing, and now they'll be able to expect the same amazing customer service and transparent pricing when it comes to the safety of their vehicle," said co-founder and CEO Walker Drewett. "We're committed to delivering top-rated brake services to vehicle owners that are tired of the sales pressure and deceiving upsell tactics that the auto repair industry is known for."
All NuBrakes technicians are certified, insured, and background checked, and each service is backed by NuBrake's 24-month/24,000 mile warranty and an over $5 million liability policy. NuBrakes technicians are also afforded a level of freedom and higher pay compared to mechanics working at big-name shops.
"Our brake technicians continually tell us how excited they are to provide their expertise on-site and away from the traditional shop atmosphere," says Drewett. "We're all about providing a service that doesn't make you feel like you were beat up over price and repairs, and all of our technicians arrive ready to fix only what's needed, nothing more."
