👋 About Us
Before starting AutoMarketplace, we created and operated a vehicle fleet 🚘🚘🚖🚕 in New York City 🗽🍎. After millions of City miles 🌆, we learned many expensive lessons💰. This inspired us to create AutoMarketplace, an automotive & NYC for-hire transportation content platform and AutoMarketplace.com, an auto repair & services marketplace.
On AutoMarketplace.com you can find trustable local NYC area auto repair & service shops 👨🏽🔧, tire installers ⚙️, car washes & detailing providers 🧼. You'll also find a directory of towing providers and body shops ⚠️. The marketplace aims to be user owned. Owned by those who help grow the site and sustain the marketplace 👩🏿👨🏻🦳👨👨🏾👴🏽👩👨🏿🦲👩🏼🦳👧🏾. This unique rewards structure will be represented by a blockchain token.
We are building in public 📢 and are always looking for new people, open to unique incentives, to grow our auto repair & services network and content platform. Please reach out at email@example.com or on social media if you're interested .
😵 No Surprise Pricing
Finding trustable auto repair & service providers with transparent pricing can be difficult. According to AAA, two out of three drivers don’t trust auto repair shops.
Reasons Drivers Don’t Trust Auto Repair Shops
😠 76% Unnecessary recommendations
💸 73% Overcharge
😒 63% Negative past experiences
Our listings offer confirmed pricing (or narrow range estimates), including diagnostics, from trustable local shops that have been vetted and are continuously reviewed ✅.
There are no vague estimates, dishonest upselling or surprises.
🛡️ Warranty on All Work
All shops that list on AutoMarketplace.com, warranty their work. Warranty terms vary by the service and provider. Terms are clearly described in each listing.
🕰️ Easy Booking & Respecting Your Time
Easily book appointments online. Shops on AutoMarketplace.com try their best to complete jobs in a timely manner. We also help shops clearly communicate with customers, including via text.
🤝 Prepaid Maintenance
We’ve teamed up with select shops to offer unique prepaid maintenance packages for NYC area drivers. The goal is to help drivers and fleets save money by locking in competitive deals through prepaying for routine auto services (i.e., state inspections, oil changes, brake flushes, tire rotation)
🟩 User Ownership & Web3
The rise of the internet (Web1) in the 1990s saw the creation of “read-only” online directories, a sort of digital Yellow Pages (if you remember what that was!). This laid the foundation for modern eCommerce (Web2) , often done on online marketplaces and social media sites. eCommerce platforms function by charging a commission on sales, subscription fees, selling online ad space or a combination of the three. Today, eCommerce is going through another transformation (Web3).
Enabled by blockchain technology, eCommerce is being reimagined. Online marketplaces will be majority owned and controlled by users. Users benefit from growing and maintaining the marketplace. AutoMarketplace.com is built for this new paradigm.
