  • About
Company description

Flube offers on-demand concierge automotive services. Users schedule services via our web app. At the appointed time, vetted independent contractors (all of whom have passed a thorough background check) travel to the customer's location, document the condition of the car photographically, drive it to our service partners, wait for completion of services, and return the car to the customer. The user can track his or her car in realtime from pickup to dropoff, courtesy of the driver's phone app. Payment for services and tips takes place entirely via the web platform. Initial focus is on oil changes; but other automotive services will follow.

Competitive advantage

Flube harnesses the freelancing revolution to connect qualified drivers with available time with customers who need automotive services. Also, Flube helps service providers to keep their shops and technicians busy, as services can be scheduled during traditional slow periods during the week.  Our platform enables photographic documentation of the condition of the vehicle to eliminates disputes;  provides realtime updates of the car's position on demand; and facilitates seamless communication among the customer, the service provider, and the driver.
