With the aim of improving the automotive industry and putting aside the bad practices that exist in mechanical workshops, the Chilean entrepreneur Sebastián Maturana created DesRueda.com.
The innovative web platform allows you to quote with hundreds of qualified mechanics the maintenance, revisions or dents and paintings that you need to perform on your car. In this way you can easily hire trusted mechanics and get the most convenient quote according to your preferences.
“Our endeavor seeks to solve the problem of finding a reliable mechanic for your car. We want to end unnecessary arrangements, excessive charges and abuses that occur as a result of the ignorance of users. Our goal is to get the bad mechanics out of the market and reward those who do the job well, ”says Maturana.
One of the key milestones for the development of the business was to partner with the entrepreneur Sebastián Murtagh, who had been working in the mechanical market for some time, this allowed them to take a leap in quality in the development of the platform and improve the service.
During 2015 Desrueda.com raised a total investment of 126 dollars, of which 98.000 were from private investors through the DaDNeos investment fund and the other 28.000 from Start-Up Chile. "We raised this investment to be able to expand our services in Latin America and eradicate this problem that happens to 99% of drivers for not knowing mechanics," says Maturana.
How does it work?
