Giving Turo guests and hosts confidence to get back on the road with EPA-approved disinfection services for virus-free vehicles
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC / ACCESSWIRE / May 18, 2020 / Get Spiffy, Inc. (Spiffy), an on-demand car care, technology, and services company, today announced a partnership with Turo, the world's largest peer-to-peer car sharing marketplace.
The Turo community represents over 14 million people and their 450,000+ vehicles across the US, Canada, and the UK. Like everyone in the travel industry, Turo has felt the dramatic effects of COVID-19 on their business and is looking forward to business returning.
"As shelter-in-place restrictions ease and people start to travel, Turo is committed to providing resources to keep guests and hosts safe," said Andre Haddad, CEO of Turo. "We are pleased to partner with Spiffy to offer Turo hosts services at special pricing to help ensure that cars have been properly cleaned and disinfected."
Spiffy quickly became the leading vehicle disinfection provider, destroying COVID-19 nationwide in 20 consumer and fleet markets with American-made, hospital-grade disinfectants that are EPA-approved 99.999% effective. Offerings range from decontamination of known infections to disinfectant treatments of hard surfaces and upholstery, with future antimicrobial protection from 7 days up to one year.
As Governors begin to lift shelter-in-place restrictions, experts predict vehicle rentals to increase from pandemic low points faster than air or train travel. Consumers want to be in control of their environments to the greatest extent possible, and vehicles offer the best travel option to meet that need. If companies like Spiffy and Turo can build consumer confidence through certified vehicle disinfection, recovery will come quicker to the travel industry.
"We are excited to partner with Turo to give their guests and hosts the confidence to get back on the road," said Spiffy CEO, Scot Wingo, "and the best way to do that is with vehicle cleaning and disinfection services that are EPA-approved and CDC-recommended to be 99.999% effective against COVID-19. When someone gets in a vehicle that has been through a Spiffy disinfection, they can have the peace of mind that the vehicle is virus-free and safe for their trip."
