RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC / ACCESSWIRE / March 11, 2020 / Get Spiffy, Inc. (SpiffyⓇ), an on-demand car care, technology, and services company, today announced the closing of a strategic investment from Shell Ventures.
Spiffy offers on-demand automotive services for fleets, office parks, and residential customers in 20 cities across the United States. Professionally trained and uniformed W2 technicians operate out of fully-equipped vans to provide on-site services, such as car detailing, oil changes, and tire installations. Used water, oil, and tires are captured and recycled as a part of their eco-conscious Spiffy Green™ approach to vehicle maintenance.
"Spiffy was founded to bring a convenience-oriented and eco-friendly focus to the car wash and detail market. Over the last five years, this has expanded towards a total car care solution, covering oil change, tires, and other maintenance services," said Spiffy CEO, Scot Wingo. "Establishing this new partnership with Shell is pivotal as we look to expand our service offerings for existing customers and fleets as well as introduce Spiffy to new markets."
As consumers demand more choice and convenience, Spiffy can provide a modern method for vehicle maintenance. By eliminating the traditional friction of car maintenance, customers can enjoy a quality service at work or home. With their Fleet Management as a Service™ model, Spiffy improves vehicle uptime and asset utilization for fleets nationwide, allowing fleet employees to focus on the core business.
"We see a lot of value in the convenient and efficient services that Spiffy can offer for car owners and fleets owners alike," said Brian Panoff, Investment Director at Shell Ventures. "Their experience in emerging fleet services, such as online and peer-to-peer car sharing, ride-sharing, and e-commerce auto sales aligns well with our focus on the changing nature of vehicle transportation and ownership."
Jim McCormick, Vice President, US Lubricants Sales for Shell adds, "We are really excited about this new relationship. Spiffy is already transitioning their oil change customers to our quality Pennzoil® and Shell Rotella® brand products, and we look forward to working with them to identify additional pathways for reaching fleet customers and consumers."
